Applying learning to lesson planning

LOEX 2014 Keynote 1: Terry Doyle,
& Reflective teaching, effective learning: instructional literacy for library educators by Char Booth. Chicago: American Library Association, 2011. (pp.21-23)

Modified COM 300 plan to incorporate reflection at beginning & end of class, brain research. Created SurveyMonkeys for pre- and post-questions.

Q1:  Your name:
        topic idea:
Q2:    Pre-Survey

Objectives were already present:
A.        Course Objectives; Kim’s objectives bolded. Think/pair/share discussion on each

Student who successfully completes the course will be able to:
  • Describe the ethical principles which guide communication research. Define these as they apply to information you’ll gather for your lit review.
  • List and locate relevant and credible communication research using appropriate search engines and strategies. Describe each of these.
  • Understand the criteria for a “good research question” and apply these criteria to a prospective research project. How do you find good examples of research questions?
There are activities:
EXPERIMENT: use Thesaurus to note subject terms, compare subject terms across databases

EXPERIMENT & WRITE NOTES: combine concepts in advanced search; choose, use, & list multiple databases; view articles for constructing research questions (introduction) & suggested research areas (end of articles).

Just before the end of class, I added Q3: Post-Survey.
