Active Learning with TEDEd

Active Learning with TEDEd
San Jose State University
Using TEDEd to increase active learning and peer-to-peer engagement, students answer questions and participate in a discussion in a video lesson. The TEDEd lesson replaces what was previously a passive learning experience where students answered standard questions for a weekly written assignment without actively engaging with the content or with their peers.

Assignment using a Podcast followed by an Interactive Activity using Jamboard & Discussion

Assignment using a Podcast followed by an Interactive Activity using Jamboard & Discussion
California State University, Fresno
Radiolab has an excellent episode documenting how you would assign a price tag to nature used as a foundation for discussion. This is the introductory assignment in a climate change and environmental science class. It was formerly just a short answer response submission by individual students (file uploaded; screenshot of discussion prompt) which has now been expanded to include a discussion on Canvas that helps segway to the following week where water usage is introduced with a Jamboard (linked). This exercise engages students via three different means of communication and interaction. They listen to a podcast, reflect on their understanding and communicate that understanding in written form to the instructor and to their peers in an active discussion. They're also then subsequently engaged with a Jamboard that builds off this introductory activity, expanding the engagement tools used in this course.

Course Organization Improvements

Course Organization Improvements
San Jose State University
Using the course template from Canvas Commons the appearance and organization of the course was improved. Banners and buttons and tabbed lessons were utilized to reduce the number of pages through which students would need to scroll. Text headers in the modules were used to divide content logically and visually guide the user. (QLT CORE 4.3 Navigation throughout the online components of the course is logical, consistent, and efficient.)
