    Massive changes have occurred recently with regard to artificial intelligence (AI) and the ability of the public to generate novel text and images using AI tools (e.g. ChatGPT). Many in education are concerned with what this means for assessing student understanding: if a student can generate a novel, accurate essay on almost any topic, how will you assess learning from short-answer and essay assignments?

    Here's a fascinating (and very useful) tutorial from Sam Kary of New EdTech for creating student choice boards in Google Docs to empower students by giving them offer a choice in how they are assessed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u_TXmQhIwU

    Hope this is the right place to share this:

    10 Individual Reflections @ two points each (essentially “Gimmes”).
    Starting in Week Two, students are asked to develop (guided) reflections on their independent and (starting in Week Three) collaborative coursework for a given week. Not only do they articulate their new learning, they connect that to prior knowledge as well as examine their work habits and related choices. Students have the following options for these reflections:

    * 21st Century Skills (Relevance and Usefulness)
    * Collaborative Learning (High Impact)

    If ever you have utilized a collaborative approach in your courses, you might be familiar with the following. Sometime just after the middle of the semester, a student contacts you complaining about various problems and/or people within their team during the first nine or ten weeks of the term. Typically, it is clear from the language of such emails that these young adults want someone else to step in and address the litany of issues described. Yet a large part of student-centered learning...

    A couple of resources I want to share:

    These articles inspired some head-on, eye-opening look at issues at the crux of teaching and learning: Self-reflection, assessment, roles of the affective domain in teaching and learning, and more. If we had taken pre- and post- tests, I'm pretty sure I'd see movement in myself on multiple spectra. Thanks, group!

    My background in Scandinavian languages and literature keeps rearing its head in various ways after many years. Specifically,when it comes to folklore, magical tales, and perilous journeys toward maturation. In a way, I have become a pedagogical Ashland, of sorts, since coming to MSU in 2015. My journey, an ongoing quest if you will, has been in trying to find that one magical key, which will unlock the enchanted door to greater student interest and involvement in their general education c...
