Abstract

The three semester-hour course has long been the default way to package instruction in higher education. Thinking of curriculum in three-unit chunks, however, tends to lock out new topics that don't fit into existing courses, thus reducing the timeliness of our offerings. The Educational Technology Department at San Diego State University recently began to offer mini-courses specifically designed for inservice teachers with the following titles: Wikis as Tools for Collaborative Learning and Knowledge Management, Motivating Student Writing with Weblogs, Teaching California, U.S., and World History using Digital Archives, Electronic Teaching Portfolios, Probeware and Digital Microscopes in the Science Classroom, Digital Video Poetry for English Teaching, GPS in and Out of the Classroom. In this session we will provide specific activity examples and lessons learned from the first offerings of the class and describe the design challenges to be overcome as we move towards offering the courses at a distance.
