Description


The goal of this project is a) to increase student engagement in class content, improve the depth of student learning, and develop student skills related to collaborative idea building using blended learning approaches, b) to identify measurable learning outcomes and develop appropriate assessment materials, and c) to investigate the impact of these blended learning strategies on identified student learning outcomes. Several faculty members within the Psychology department at Smith College have begun to integrate idea-centered learning, specifically an online blended learning technique, into the teaching of Introduction to Research Methods. The proposed pilot project will further these efforts by facilitating the implementation and assessment of blended learning approaches aimed at increasing deep learning.
