3/2/2018 DOLCE: Teaching Code/ Mastery Paths in Canvas
From ATS Video on March 2nd, 2018
DOLCE on March 2nd covered a wide
range of topics from teaching code from a design perspective to a new
Beta feature “Mastery Paths” that faculty can use in Canvas.
Glenda Drew’s talk “Baby, It’s Code Outside” highlighted the innovative ways that the professor of Design teaches code in her classroom. Glenda Drew makes code come alive to her students by focusing on the design aspect of code, including by creating “applications” first with paper and pencils.
Spanish professor Bob Blake will be presenting at the April 6th DOLCE, but was able to preview his presentation. He also discussed his current work on the third edition of Brave New Digital Classroom, on which he is currently working. He plans to create a text that is approachable, applicable to teaching, and grounded in research.
