Assignment using Communication and Interaction Resources

Assignment using Communication and Interaction Resources
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.

Plagiarism Workshop Wrap-Up Activities

Plagiarism Workshop Wrap-Up Activities
California State University, Fresno
The plagiarism workshop was originally developed for face-to-face delivery in 2006 and moved online due to COVID. At this time, the workshop was redesigned so that students can work together on the practice exam. Meeting in Zoom, students take the assessment quiz independently and then we watch the Plagiarism Video as a class. Students are then placed in breakout rooms where they work together on the practice exam to prepare for the post test that they then take individually. While in Zoom students have the opportunity to ask the instructor as well as their classmates questions and the delivery of the workshop provides multiple opportunities to give feedback. These experiences allow students to summarize and wrap-up the workshop experience.
