      Michelle Raspanti published a blog post Week 3: From Magic to Witchcraft
      Unit three is a discussion about the sudden explosion of new accusations in late Medieval Europe. The videos analyze the ‘witch’ stereotype in depth. A witch was a person (woman) who practiced maleficent magic, or magic that caused harm...

        I love that your course had a pre-quiz before each lesson! I've never seen that before and sounds like a great way to prepare for what's to be expected in the lesson ahead.

          Susan, I think it's so great you are using ideas from this assignment to apply to your classes! I also find what you said here very interesting: "If I was in the class for credit (or paying for it) I would most likely NOT complete it in...

            Gerald Ardito added a new discussion topic Questions for our Book in the group Philosophy of Education Fall 2019
            I am very excited about how this project is shaping up. Here are the six questions that received the most votes: 2. In a practical sense, how can teachers combat the restrictiveness of the classroom and give students freedom? What is the...

                I think these questions are reflective of our class's general interests regarding the subject and, given that they were selected over other suggested questions, I don't think any more is necessary. I don't have a strong preference...

                  I think i would enjoy writing on questions 2 and 11. But i feel that if we do not include more that itll be hard to create a full fledged book. So on that note I feel that 6 and 7 should also be included because it offers a more focused idea to...

                    I believe these questions target the class concerns in learning and education, which is very important for the research to generate engagement and reach certain depth.

                    Hi Susan,  I did find it more helpful as parts of the diagram were able to be highlighted, circled, added or zoomed in on while being discussed rather than just being a still image next to the information.

                      Week 4 was on communication, and language development. The video taught about how we acquire language. The professor said there are four specific areas to master a language, phonology, semantics, grammar, and pragmatics. As much as I was already...

                              This topic is super interesting to me as a former foreign language teacher! I agree with both you and Alicia about the video use in my course as well. The videos were my favorite part. They captured and summarized the key concepts in a concise way...

                              These weeks’ assignments focus on “The Emergence of Thinking and Understanding.”  This week I learned there are three influential perspectives on cognitive development. The first being Jean Piaget’s theory of cognitive...

                                This week and last I had to push through to complete the 8 week course within our own time constraints, so I skipped a number of videos that I found to be tedious and/or repetitive. I found that I could click on a section's summary, and glean...

                                      Susan- I agree with you. The ability to skip around and rewatch videos is a huge help that I believe to be true for all learners. This makes me think about how many times I need to watch a YouTube tutorial when learning a new tool, but in...

                                        Nicole. do you think the video was more helpful than a textbook? I ask because textbooks insert diagrams, and I wonder if the format of being able to study the diagram while a lecturer walked you through the key parts of it was most helpful, or if...

This lecture was the most clear for me because they really broke down the topic. I learned about Capital Loss/Gain and Dividends. The second lecture was...

The professors discuss cardiorespiratory fitness which is the capacity of the body to transport and utilize oxygen. This type of exercise...
