Reminder: IC-bG Workshop #3 Activities is THIS FRIDAY at 2 pm

Hello newer members of the Innovative Course-building Group!

Our 4th session is this Friday – 2pm at Digital Bridges, downtown. We will use this session to learn start planning activities that meet your new course goals.

By now, Homework #2 should be completed (see below).
Remember, one of the premises behind ICBG is that we believe you will learn more by actively doing (homework, activities, etc.) than by just showing up,plus you will accomplish more for your course!

Please complete Before Friday 2 pm
For the workshop on Friday, please post 2 or 3 goals/learning outcomes/learning objectives for your course on the blog.
Bring any ideas that you already have for activities that meet a course goal. You can share these with others!
