Abstract

This paper introduces the design of an online course that teaches computer skills through experiential learning. This experiential learning approach helped students learn integration of computer technology into teaching and learning settings. Students were provided with a concrete experience practically constructing ideas for their own teaching and learning. These projects required reflective thinking. Students’ feedback is cited. A new textbook that is born based on the experiential learning of this class and the graduate program that emphasizes experiential learning are introduced.
