Great start Maree. Excellent performance objectives (if a lot of them) and gorgeous picture on your personal page :)

I am really interested in this topic so I have been following your updates. I was concerned that the class might not be intended for me because you state the the typical learner will be someone who has a masters of PHD in higher education. That's not me! I didn't see any prerequisites listed, I thought maybe I needed some knowledge or ability to complete the course that your typical learner would possess. Either way I am going to follow along, the topic is so interesting to me.

Corie, I'm sorry for the confusion. After development, I hope to use this mini course as a way to educate college professors on the design considerations that go into making this type of change in their teaching. Since I have this ultimate goal, I'm thinking about my project through that lens. I don't think there are any prerequisites or requirements that would exclude learners that are out of the scope of my "typical" learner. I will be working on describing and adding those prerequisites this weekend. I hope other could learn from this course as well.

Hi Maree, I chose to review your course because I would like to learn more about flipped classrooms. I recently had a job interview for an instructional design position at a University and the only question I did not feel comfortable with was on the flipped classroom model.

Your portfolio page is very thorough, and you have me thinking that mine is way to light, yikes! I am curious about your needs assessment format, where did you find it? I have not found another of our classmates using your format, but I like it.

I am a little confused with your task analysis section, you use enabling objectives? I don’t remember studying that in this course. I remember the phrase essential prerequisites. I do not have any teaching experience so it could be that I just never heard of this phrase.

It also seems a bit confusing that you have so many objectives in your task analysis, I thought these were two separate elements?

You did a great job with your curriculum map. It really shows exactly what will be occurring in your mini class.

Your objectives were spot on, touching on all of gagnes five points.

Hi Maree, I love the idea of the flipped classroom, so I look forward to following your course. I particularly like your needs assessment section for its clarity. I am still putting my task analysis together, so seeing completed analysis sections from my peers, including you, lets me see that I am kind of over thinking my own. Keep up the hard work and I look forward to seeing the final course.

Hi Maree, I have never heard the term "flipped classroom" before reading your portfolio and find it an interesting subject. It seems your instructional problem statement clearly describes a need for this type of learning enviroment to be considered, and your learner analysis is also quite clear on who the target audience will be for your mini course. Your lessons are developed further than I feel mine are at this time, and I can see you put a lot of thought into the prerequisites, as did I. I found this task to be harder in some respects than the rest of the assignment but you did a great job identifying the enabling objectives and the prerequisites for each target objective. It is organized in a manner which I found easy to understand.
