The ID Processes
- The design project expects you to exercise the processes of instructional design as we study/read about each component in this course; the processes need to be documented in your portfolio, such as these two: Colleen_B.'s_portfolio_page and Melissa_Filotas'_Portfolio_Page
- The design processes are scheduled as ETAP 623 Fall 2011 Design Project Agenda
As your end product, you will produce
- A mini-course for teacher learning, such as Data analysis for differentiated instruction, with teachers as your target learner/audience; OR
- An instructional case report such as: Problem Based Curriculum Development - A Case Study, providing/implementing a set of lessons for students to learn about a core topic. Other teachers will also be able to benefit from analyzing your lessons, as an instructional case, to understand the teaching approach, tool, or assessment that have applied.
- This end product will be evaluated based on the following Evaluation_criteria

I've reviewed the portfolio pages (with substantial work documented) and posted my comments in the discussion area/tab of your page ("discussion" on top)--Jianwei 10/17.
A new tip re. how to add an image from the Internet to a wiki page: find an image online, right click on the image and copy its address, go to your page and paste the address into <img>address</img> (no space). Save, and this image will then be embedded into your page.
