10/21/2015 14:01:05Ralph BeliveauGaylord CollegeDevelop a course unit that integrates interactive classroom ideas into critical media literacy frameworks, including an awareness of the medium effects on content and form (and memory and understanding).
2 units:
1. Designed for faculty in areas where media is used but is not the primary area of content
2. Designed for students to enhance awareness of the effects of medium choices on learning, citizenship, and the literacy process
3/1/2016Students/Teachers will demonstrate the fundamental ability to perform a critical media analysis of a piece of online content

Students will be able to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different media choices though presenting contrasting examples.
Media, Citizen Literacy and Learning of the foundational support for my approach to pedagogy is the interactive and dialogic relationship between teachers and students. This is a fundamental component of the development of critical participatory skills for lifelong learners (which are lifelong teachers as well). In ideal circumstances, teachers become students and students become teachers.

So the design of this project is an attempt to reach across this barrier very similar goals.

The first part is designed to work with faculty development or understanding of how to integrate technology in classrooms, while at the same time being acutely aware of the games and losses of changing delivery methods.

The second part, which is ideally something of a mirror of the first, constructs for students away of understanding their management of their own learning through a similar consideration of media.

10/21/2015 14:02:50Melanie WildermanGaylord CollegeI plan to update/redesign a course in basic media design in the Gaylord College curriculum using Lynda to facilitate software training of InDesign, PhotoShop and Illustrator outside of class time, so that class time may be spent on design history, theory, techniques, communication in design and project planning. One course2/15/2016Students will be able to successfully navigate Adobe Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop and understand and use the programs’ basic tools to create design projects common to the media industry. Students will understand design theory and techniques, and how to communicate using design and apply these to projects. JMC XXX3 Basic Media Design the course is called Desktop Publishing, which in itself is an outdated term. I plan to change the name to something like Basic Media Design, and teach basic design skills (using industry standard software in the Adobe Creative Suite) to create small design projects such as business cards, logos and advertisements and then move to more complex design work like web magazine layout, multiple-page publications and information graphics. There is concern within Gaylord College that we not teach software, and I understand this concern. will provide the software training, allowing me as the instructor to provide important design skill knowledge outside of simple software training.

10/26/2015 10:25:52Christopher M. HillDepartment of SociologyI plan to use to teach specific Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) to students enrolled in their senior capstone experience. These KSAs pertain to research, analysis, and writing.1 Course - CAS 4703 - Multidisciplinary Capstone
3 Lessons - Research; Analysis; Writing
1/15/2016First, after viewing courses on research, students will be able to identify a data set relevant to a course topic, describe the data and how they were collected, and discuss any strengths and weaknesses of the data.

Second, after viewing courses on analysis, students will be able to perform basic statistical computations for a data set, including measures of central tendency and dispersion.

Third, after viewing courses on writing, students will be able to complete an in-depth writing component that effectively explores interdisciplinary topics.
CAS 4703 - Multidisciplinary Capstone to the OU Course Catalog, the Multidisciplinary Capstone explores interdisciplinary topics through research, analysis, and writing. These competencies are necessary to effectively focus on contemporary issues from a global perspective. While I expect students will have had some training in these areas, I plan to focus on research, analysis, and writing throughout the course to improve their competency levels and to provide a context for exploring interdisciplinary topics. To teach KSAs pertaining to research, analysis, and writing, I will use curated playlists from to supplement in-class instruction.

Specifically, I will use the following courses.

-Marketing Research Fundamentals
-Up and Running with Public Data Sets

-Excel 2013: Managing and Analyzing Data
-Data Visualization for Data Analysts

-Writing Research Papers
-Writing Articles
In-class instruction
Reading assignments TBD
10/26/2015 10:46:56Hollie MackeyEducational Leadership and Policy StudiesThe goal of this project is to provide students the opportunity to produce artifacts to accompany the written component of their Comprehensive Portfolio to satisfy ELCC standards 2.3, 2.4, 3.2, 5.3, and 6.1 demonstrating professional competence in analyzing and developing teachers' professional development.This project includes 7 activities embedded every other week of a semester long Masters level course12/18/2015Students will understand and be able to develop and supervise the instructional and leadership capacity of school staff; students will understand and be able to promote the most effective and appropriate technologies to support teaching and learning in a school environment. Students will understand and be able to efficiently use human, fiscal, and technological resources to manage school operations; students will understand and be able to evaluate the potential ethical and legal consequences of decision making in the school; Students will be able to describe the major areas of inquiry that guide education law and provide key case law analysis for school policy making. EACS 5263 Education and the Law will watch videos as part of a course playlist covering topics related to technology use, instructional leadership, and the legal and ethical considerations needed for using technology in public educational settings. They will then provide legal and practical analysis of implementing the content of the videos into schools from a building level leader perspective and develop a professional development model for communicating the ethical and legal considerations of each topic.
11/4/2015 16:12:12Katerina TsetsuraGaylord College I plan to use as an additional resource for my students in JMC 4453 PR Research, in which students use tablets to access all required readings and multimedia materials. I will select videos from that are focused on research techniques, data gathering and data analysis (qualitative and quantitative).

Students will be able to watch the viodes and practice the skills as part of the required multi-media readings/assignments.

I also plan to create two activities to help students practice the data gathering and data analysis.
1 course, PR Research; 2 units (1: data gathering and 2: data analysis; one playlist; 2 activities)12/15/2015After reviewing the playlist, students will be able 1) to learn and understand basics of statistics; 2) be able to explain why a normal distribution is important for data analysis; 3) be able to use basic statistical functions in Excel and SPSS.JMC 4453 PR Research use of will help to integrate the multi-media resoures available to our students as part of the required reading/watch materials. We will use training videos from to help students get practical skills in data gathering and data analysis. Using will help to further integrate multimedia resources available to our students for class instructional purposes.

The playlist is now available on:
ItunesU PR Research class with Dr. Tsetsura
Additional readings on the topics are posted on iTunesU.
