I use a Start Here folder to
orient students to the course.
In it I include course
information, the syllabus, a
syllabus quiz, an opening
lecture, study guides,
biographical information,
work ethics, and written
assignments for the
I use modules. Each unit
covers 2 chapters.
Inside each unit I have 2
folder: this week’s
assignments (including a
schedule, a quiz, a study
guide, and other relevant
information) and lectures
(including my power points
and supplemental material).
I use discussion boards to
encourage conversation about
course content. I require a
blog assignment wherein
students submit critiques on
art, architecture, and
literature. Students have to
respond to at least one other
student’s blog during the
semester, which encourages
conversation on these topics to

I keep office hours on campus.
I meet with students on the
phone or in person.
I occasionally hold live chats.

I give 8 content quizzes and
one syllabus quiz.
I assign three blog posts (~500
words each).
I offer an optional journal
assignments and exercises

They respond to one another
after sharing their critiques.
I make online videos available
(via links on my homepage) on
a wide range of topics
pertaining to the material in
the chapters.
Please add additional slides as necessary in order to complete this reflection.
Goals (What would you like to improve in this course in the future?)
◦ I would like to record my lectures and insert them into my PowerPoint lectures so students can hear
the anecdotes and asides that accompany the slides. I am always seeking better web-based material
to provide them as supplementary material. I am also exploring web-supported tools available
through the publisher.
Training (How can we help you with your course design?)
◦ I need to explore recording options.
Teaching Philosophy (What motivates you to teach the way that you teach?)
◦ I conduct my classroom based on a student-centered model. While I am the content expert, I am
also a facilitator. I believe that students and teachers can (and should) learn from one another. The
learning environment should be flexible and supportive in order to encourage this type of exchange
of ideas.
