Final Check List: YAY!

Final Check List: YAY!

Hello awesome people!

Here’s a handy check list for us as we finish out this semester:

Quick video that explains these things here:

*A. Just added: the Liberal Studies program would like feedback on the capstone course. Would you mind taking this survey? This would be a chance to say what worked about our particular section and suggestions you have about future capstone courses and the program: LINK HERE.  THANK YOU!

  1. Please make sure your paper is also shared with my google drive: (note: email is different for my google drive than the one I email you from).
  2. Then, use this Google Form link to share the following things:
    • Bio (examples here)
    • Photo
    • Paper Title
    • Link to Paper
    • Link to Remix/Artifact (your letter to parents, lesson plan, curated resource, video…)

Things to consider for your final drafts:

    • They’re complete, right? 😉
    • Check APA formatting (sample APA paper)
      • check subheadings
      • Basic in text quote: As Smith (2004) argues, “Blah blah blah” (p. 13).
        • Fulcher (2003), for instance, makes this basic criticism of the EBB scale even as he subsequently argues that “the explicitness of the design methodology for EBBs is impressive, and their usefulness in pedagogic settings is attractive” (p. 107).
      • Article titles in quotes: “Title: Title Title Title”; books in italics Book Title.
      • When you reference an author’s research, your verb is in present tense. So, for example: As Smith states, “….” instead of As Smith stated…
    • References page completed
    • Abstract and keywords
    • Remove the template language/instructions from within your draft
    • Watch for Kim’s “bossy edit” and edit/resolve comments

Everything is due by Thursday, May 20th at 2:00pm. 😉 Kim will curate our shared resource and send to you all (and post on our website).

Welcome to EDTE 490W!

Welcome to EDTE 490W!

Hello everyone!

You’ve found your way to our Liberal Studies Capstone course website; welcome! I look forward to working together this semester and supporting you as educational researchers. I can only imagine how many things you’ll be keeping track of with all your classes and as you prepare to graduate (yay! congratulations!). We’ll work synchronously on Zoom during our Tuesday class sessions (2:00-4:50): think of this as a virtual working group. We’ll use the full time, but we’ll typically break off to read, write, research, and give feedback during our time together. We will not spend the entire time face-to-face in a Zoom session, but we will work and come back together throughout the class session. Please mark off these hours on your calendar.

If you want, you can jump in to our class by going to the page on the top menu called Getting Started. There you will find instructions for joining two platforms we’ll be using: Perusall (which supports reading together) and Currents (which supports our writing together). My goal: introduce you to platforms that you can use in your teaching, and importantly, platforms that support professional development and collaboration with fellow educators. 

I am here to support you: feel free to reach out with any questions. I check email all the time. Cause, you know, I’m home. 😉

Here’s a quick welcome video with some information. You. got. this.
