Unequal Classrooms: What Online Education Cannot Teach

The following opinion piece from The Chronicle of Higher Education discusses how MOOCS (massive open online courses) may be contributing to the perpetuation of social inequalities among America’s college student populations.  How do you incorporate online learning opportunities in your college classrooms at Rutgers?


Learning “with” Students vs. Doing “for” Students

Learning “with” Students vs. Doing “for” Students

The following Faculty Focus blog post highlights the distinction between designing courses “with” as opposed to “for” their respective college student populations.  This course development perspective largely informs the nature of learner-focused objectives and assessments outlined in course syllabi.  

In light of course syllabus development, please remember that the TA Project offers a college teaching professional development course entitled Designing Your Own Course(16:186:856), every fall semester at Rutgers University – New Brunswick.  The purpose of the course is to support graduate students in designing a course that they may someday teach.  This course is graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis and available to students with at least two semesters of college teaching experience (or successfully completed Introduction to College Teaching 186:855).  Designing Your Own Course will be offered on Wednesdays, 4:30p-6:30p on the College Avenue Campus during the Fall 2013 semester.
