From Roots to Shoots: Developing a Hands-on Distance Education Botany Lab Course from the Ground Up
Start Date: 10/23/2013Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 10/23/2013End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
This seminar focuses on the process of generating a distance education (DE) version of an introductory Plant Life course (PB 200) that includes a hands-on DE lab. Course instructors Chad Jordan and Jim Mickle will share their experiences of working collaboratively with DELTA instructional designers to develop lecture modules and labs that effectively address the same learning outcomes as the on-campus course. They will also discuss the series of labs that were modified from the on-campus course to be safely carried out in the home environment using a combination of materials supplied in a lab kit and low-cost items that can be found at home or in a grocery. The presentation will feature examples of novel learning objects developed by DELTA's multimedia specialists for both the lecture and lab components of the course, including a novel animation on plant secondary growth, digital flashcards, a slide virtual viewer, and online videos.
