dc.description.abstract <p>How do you reimagine a subject that has been taught the same way for nearly 3,000 years? You use ThinkSpace! Instructors often find it difficult to encourage critical thinking amongst their students. How can they help students develop the skills to choose the correct methodology to analyze an issue, form an evaluated judgement and then communicate that effectively? ThinkSpace has the tools for it that and they have been tested in a course in Classical Studies. Alexander Hall, Lecturer in Classical Studies at the Department of World Languages and Cultures and Ritushree Chatterjee, Instructional Design Specialist ELO have crafted a new approach using ThinkSpace that helps online students develop the knowledge and skills to interpret Greek Mythology. Combining immediate expert feedback and the Comments Library functions in ThinkSpace, they have evolved a structure that works for large, writing intensive online courses - and have student feedback to back it up!</p>
