Carmen Common Sense Cohort
Facilitated by Clinical Associate Professor Nicole Kraft, School of Communication, this professional learning experience will guide participants through the theories and practices of Carmen usage modeled in Carmen Common Sense with an eye towards redesigning the way they use the LMS to increase student learning and enhance student experiences. This cohort is especially relevant as instructors consider courses for summer and autumn semester.
Carmen Common Sense was developed through a collaboration of the Undergraduate Student Government, the Council on Distance Education, Libraries and Information Technology, and the Drake Institute for one simple reason: Students were frustrated, and they recognized patterns and practices being used in outstanding Carmen courses.
The cohort will meet from 9-10 a.m. Monday through Thursday. Participants will use Zoom to review key elements in Carmen Common Sense and determine how they may best be incorporated into a class. All resources, links and materials will be accessible in Carmen.
The focus of conversation, activities and readings will help instructors view a course through students’ eyes. By the end of this series of sessions, participants will be able to incorporate Carmen Common Sense theories into course design and instructional strategies. Instructors may choose to assess changes to instructional strategies resulting from this experience as part of an Instructional Redesign portfolio.
