I can't believe it's just two more weeks until InstructureCon, and I've got a lot to do: I need to more-or-less get my classes ready for Fall (since I'll be busy with family stuff in August), AND I have lots of pre-InstCon prep I'd like to get done. So, you can expect a lot of blog posts here in the coming days, especially on my Feedback Project, which is the focus for my class redesign this summer.
I am feeling really excited about this because feedback is a part of EVERY course design, right? So I hope that the materials I am gathering here for my own feedback-focused redesign can be useful to everybody, even if you have different goals and philosophies that drive your classes. I am putting all my feedback resources here in an open Canvas course space to share with as wide an audience as possible:
As you can see, I'm all about CURATING and RE-USING resources that other people create. Most of what I share with my students is created by others. My own bit of creative work is the Feedback Cats, but those cats also depend on other people's content, as the texts are inspired by articles and infographics that others have created.
So my advice is: don't try to create content by yourself. Instead, curate and re-purpose! It takes less time AND it results in even better content. Diigo, Padlet, and Twitter are my three favorite curation tools these days. What are your favorites?
