Criteria for Evaluating the Wiki-based Design Project
- Your design portfolio page (20%)
Your portfolio page reports all the required instructional analysis work (i.e., selecting topic, defining learning outcomes, learner analysis, etc) and design plans (e.g., your major design rationale for using certain learning methods and media, instructional sequencing, instructional curriculum maps, reflections).
- Your course (80%)
- Learning outcomes (10%): Expected learning outcomes have been properly identified for the course focusing on “big ideas” related to the selected topic (i.e., ideas that can transform teachers’ understanding of and approaches to learning); and communicated using clear, performance-based terms (e.g., Gagne, p. 134);
- Content-goal consistency (10%): The content and learning experience afforded by the course can help learners achieve the identified learning outcomes, sufficient and necessary.
- Instructional sequencing (20%): Specific learning objectives have been sequenced in a way that can facilitate the learning of the content, addressing prerequisites before proceeding to major concepts, highlighting connections.
- Engagement and interaction (20%): Use effective strategies (e.g., prompts, headings, questions, scenarios, activities) to motivate learners, attract attentions, and promote reflection and interaction.
- Technical quality (10%): Text and pictures are informative and easy to read. Navigation links are properly designed and highlighted to facilitate easy browsing.
- Extended resources (10%): External, useful resources are linked, recommended, and acknowledged.
The total score you get from the Design Project will account for 50% of your final grade.
