instructor comments on your instructional analysis and objectives -- Jianwei Zhang (talk) 16:35, 13 April 2013 (EDT)

I'm glad to see your catch-up.


Your instructional analysis needs to include a section on the learner/participant, the context, and need (what gap to be addressed).


Your objectives can be further refined and elaborated in performance-based terms.


Understand the benefits of integrating technology into their programs

Change the verb to something like "describe". Into what programs?

Understand the different ways in which they can integrate technology

Integrate tech into what? What type of technology?

Understand why instant feedback is important to student achievement

Change the verb to "explain". Achievement in what area?

Understand the role of technology as a tool to increase student learning

This sounds like the same as your objective 1. I guess you seem to be focusing on the role of tech in generating and tracking feedback.

Jeanne's Developmental Tryout of William's Mini Course: review of Portfolio -- Jeanne M. Weber (talk) 15:10, 28 April 2013 (EDT)

Evaluation: Design Portfolio - by Jeanne

After reading over the agenda and evaluation criteria provided, here are my comments specifically regarding your Design Portfolio page. Overall, I felt that this course has the potential to be of benefit to the target participants, i.e. Physical Education Educators. I have a few concerns about some details that I have outlined below, including some apparent missing sections that you may want to address.


NOTE: the link from the class page to your mini course (Integrating technology into a Physical Education Curriculum) gives the following error: "Bad title - The requested page title was invalid, empty, or an incorrectly linked inter-language or inter-wiki title. It may contain one or more characters that cannot be used in titles." I was able to find and comment on it using the search.

Introduction/Rationale/Needs Assessment:

  • Concise, but not entirely clear?
  • Suggestion: use synonyms for “pieces” of technology – aspects, types, etc.
  • Suggestion: instead of the word “show”, what about “engage in the process” of being more responsible for their growth?
  • Learning Outcomes:
  • Excellent goals, but could they be more explicit? Suggestion: change “will know” and “will understand” to tangibles: “will be able to... explain, describe, implement” etc.”
  • Performance Objectives:
  • Clearly stated, relevant

Task Analysis, (enabling, supporting prereqs) Sequencing – structure, Instructional Curriculum Map

  • Unit Objectives, Methods (course outline) Thoughts about learning methods
  • Well defined and clear prerequisites, both essential and supportive. Concerns: there is a second set of “Learning Outcomes” under Task Analysis – not sure why? Suggestion: Could these be incorporated into the prior list above? (shifting the verbs “understand” to another appropriate, but tangible verb)
  • Seems to be missing the sequencing structure – i.e. the outline of units and specific Unit objectives that relate to the tasks for each unit.
  • Also seems to be missing the Instructional Curriculum map?
