This is a timely post, from Deanna Marcum, Managing Director of Ithaka S+R, the company who helped us with assessment of learning and effectiveness in round one the classes that were constructed and taught for the Council of Independent College's Consortium for Online Humanities Instruction. Round two (for me) will be starting today. A new feature I am adding is a Reacting game on Byzantine Iconoclasm. I'm going to try to teach it as a game, rather than a staged debate like last time. A few of my Reacting to the Past colleagues have had success in online Reacting games, so I am going to give it a try.
Here is to the second round of innovative courses, with students enrolling from across the consortium's schools. Updates to come!
