Educators need to develop effective Internet search strategies, academic writing skills, sound criteria for evaluating and analyzing Web sites and online publications, and experience in integrating Web-based research into classroom research methods. This course trains educators to efficiently and effectively search, evaluate and document digital educational resources. Students are guided through an investigation of multimodal, educational materials available online via the open web and library subscription resources. A series of small research projects, on the topic of the student's choice, will be used to build a body of research that culminates in a final paper and bibliography, which follows the submission guidelines of an appropriate academic journal.

This course prepares participants to lead change within an organization. The course brings students through a systematic approach to enterprise-wide change around technology initiatives.

Students will explore 3D worlds and become comfortable with their usage as educational tools. Using a learning management tool (Moodle) as our base for this course, students will explore Second Life and Jokaydia, but will also delve into game simulations like World of Warcraft and MinecraftEdu (a problem-solving creative sandbox world) for their educational values.

Nonprofit Courses (MDO): ($655 per credit; $500 to audit)
  • Credits: 3

This course explores the rationale and methods for setting and assessing measurable outcomes in mission-driven environments. Students will examine the benefits and challenges of establishing program, organizational, and community level outcomes and using metrics to determine "what is better as a result of our efforts?" They will come away with the tools and strategies to set, assess, and use the results of measurable outcomes. The course will use a three-pronged approach: didactic learning about the purpose and techniques of outcome measurement; applied learning, with student teams each working with an organization to develop outcomes and assessment strategies; and sharing and analyzing the experience, deepening students' ability to translate learning to practice.

Whether you are tasked with facilitating in service of a coalition meeting, team meeting, working group, committee, or cultivating a community, how authentically you step into that role will greatly impact the success of the group. In this course we will become a community of practice that will explore ideas and engage in activities designed to cultivate the awareness, presence, and skills for facilitating vibrant environments that unleash groups' collective intelligence and creativity.
