ThinkSpace Conversations: Dr. Alexander Hall and Ritushree Chatterjee, Iowa State University
Designing courses for higher order thinking in online classes is a challenge. To make it scalable for large online writing intensive classes is even more difficult. But with the right tools and approach, it is possible.
In this video, Dr. Alexander Hall, Lecturer in Classical Studies in the Department of World Languages and Culture and Ritushree Chatterjee, Instructional Design specialist at Engineering-LAS Online Learning at Iowa State describe what attracted them to ThinkSpace and the process they underwent as they re-imagined their course in Greek and Roman Mythology for an asynchronous online environment using ThinkSpace.
Dr. Hall used reflections and the Immediate expert feedback, Commenting and Comments Library function in ThinkSpace extensively to scaffold students through the interpretive process of his discipline.
