That said, I want to define my research question and a desired instructional outcome before delving into the specific research that will se...

                Week 1

                Looking at the four themes of the course, the theme that stuck out to me the most was motivation. I think an internal source of motivation is crucial for student learning, and having that would allow the student to be able to keep going even in the most challenging of environments. This is why I ...

                      Outline of Course Plan

                      After reviewing the video I decided against following a backwards design because I believe that designing a learning environment requires a depth of understanding of the students' needs. I would like to have a design that is as effective as possible in providing the necessary conditions for t...
