<Newly Added> Arendale, D. R. (Ed). (2019). Draft Course Based Learning Assistance Best Practices Guidelines (3rd ed.) The purpose of the 80+ page set of guides is to provide guidance and practices that could increase their effectiveness and efficiency. There are twelve sections of the guides ranging from program evaluation to technology and everything inbetween. In addition to their use for academic study groups, these guides can be useful for faculty members to incorporate learning activities and pedagogies into their courses.
I am grateful to Mary Lilly, program administrator for the Peer Assisted Learning program at the University of Minnesota for sharing four training manuals and storybooks concerning her peer program. Students were co-authors or editors of these publications. I highly encourage you to check them out on the peer study group program resource page.
Finally, I have finished going through every web link on the web page. Everything should be working and will open a new tab on your browser for viewing. No doubt a couple of strays. Regret the long delay in cleaning up the web site.
I completed the revision of web links for all the history simulations. Regret the long delay. I updated the documents, especially the summary of the simulation. Rather than providing individual Word documents which made for a very long list, I have placed the documents into PDF groupings. There are plenty of free software packages that can turn PDFs into Word documents. As always, your feedback is welcome. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in advance for your suggestions and feedback.
I posted to my blog the YouTube copies of the Ph.D. Movie: Parts One and Two. If you want to have a deeper understand of the real-life of graduate students, don’t miss them. They are both humorous and painful. And much to real. We as the teaching staff need to understand better the graduate school experience through the eyes of the students. The story lines in the movies are based on lived experiences of graduate students.
After a decade with the old format, it was about time to do a major refresh of my personal website. I am still using SquareSpace to host the site. This version is now “mobile-friendly” so it automatically reformats itself to make it easier to read on smartphones and tablets. I hope you find it easier to navigate and to read.
