Curriculum and Instructional Design Samples
Indiana University, W200 - Computers in Education
- Sample weekly Power Point Presentation: This example is one of the 16 Power Point Presentations designed for the weekly teaching portion of W200. It is broken up to allow time for discussion, lecture, actiuvities related to the week's content, and unit projects. Presentations were also uploaded to the W200 website and Canvas for students to access outside of the classroom.
- Case Analysis Template: This major project was completed in two iterations (two case analyses) over hte course of the semester. The intent of this project was to allow students to begin to trainsitioin their thinking from students to teachers. Students analyzed a case from a list of cases provided (or, if enrolled in the Service Learning course, would work with a selected practicing teacher), drew relevant information from the case, selected potential technology resources which would address the issues the teacher was having in the classroom, and created two artifacts (examples or items for the teacher to use). Students were placed into groups based on content area (for pre-service secondary teachers)or age group they planned on teaching (early childhood ed teachers or elementary teachers).
- W200 eBook Project Planning Document: Students were tasked with the creation of an eBook using iBooks Author for their future classroom. This planning document served to break up the entire task into smaller, more manageable tasks, and provide a logical workflow that allowed for oranization and reflection throughout the project. This sample document was used in a Service-Learning W200 section.
- W200 Final Exam Revision Plan: The W200 Final Exam had previously been focused on an essay relating their experiences within W200 to the TPACK framework. A team of instructors led by myself and a colleague, Matthew Callison, advocated for a Final Exam which would be more meaningful for the students. We created the linked plan, which allowed for students to share the work they were proud of, gain feedback from other students, present their planned professional development trajectories, and reflect on the course through the TPACK lens.
Indiana University, W210 - Survey of Computer Based Education
- Instructional Design/Web Design Project. This project, part of the overall Problem-Based Unit in W210, focused on the creation of a rough lesson plan and supporting website which addressed an approach to learning chosen by the student. The students were grouped for the project, based on their selection of an approach for learning.
- Blog Post Prompts for Problem-Based Units. Part of the W210 designed curriculum used individual blog posts for students to reflect on weekly learning inside class, outside class, and in their service-learning placements. With the introduction of the Problem-Based Unit, blog post focus was altered based on the research from the Student Reflective Experiences in a Problem Based Unit paper. Blog posts were modified to focus on progress, questions, and concerns about their progress on addressing the problem of the Unit.
- Technology in our Schools Video Project. As part of the Problem-Based Unit in W210, students were tasked to create a video for a school administrator related to their selected approach to learning, and how technology can support it. Students were tasked to contact real-world, practicing teachers, administrators, and technology coordinators to see how these approaches are used in their schools.
- Technology Analysis Project. The Technology Analysis Project, the first major project of W210, allows the student to explore a selected tool of their choice in depth. Students were placed in the role of a technology team at a public school. Students were given guidelines to consider as they explored tools including Budget considerations, positives, potential drawbacks, usage both inside and outside the classroom, educational value, and reviews by teachers, administrators, students, and technology coordinators. Students then presented their findings to the team, including whether or not they would recommend the tool for use in the school.
- W200 Service Learning Section Case Analysis Sample. This is a student sample of the Case Analysis described above. This Service Learning example had a student reach out to one of their previous teachers, identify a problem the teacher seemed to be having, and attempt to address the problem through the use of technology. This example is focused on a 12th grade Mythology class, and focuses on the use of an AP Language standard.
- W200 Regular Section Case Analysis Sample with Comments. This is a student sample of the Case Analysis described above. This example derives the case from a list of cases provided by W200 instructors to the students, and was completed as a group of three elementary pre-service teachers.
- W210 Video Checkpoints Document: This document was used for the Fall 2012 version of the Problem-Based Learning Video Project linked above as an organizational and managerial tool for students and instructor. Students had their own group Google Document to work on/sort group notes, and pasted a link to the final video product. Contains links to Final Products and Group Google Doc workflow.
- W200 3/10/14 Ticket Out the Door Responses: The Ticket out the Door strategy was used as a brief reflective activity for students, as well as a checkpoint for the instructor to clear up any "Muddy Points" during the weekly announcement, review for the next class session, or one-on-one work in the Teaching Technology Lab on the Indiana University Campus.

- Making Education Relevant to Students: Project Method, Interdisciplinary Education, and the Social Studies. Written in 2011 for IT 625 at SUNY Potsdam, this paper discusses the importance and methods by which the Project Method can be used in an interdisiplinary setting within a Social Studies Classroom.
- Student Reflective Experiences in a Problem-Based Unit. This paper, written for R685 at Indiana University with Dr. Krista Glazewski, focused on the importance of reflection within a Problem-based Unit in a classroom. This research examined the experiences of 11 students on a Problem-Based unit in an undergraduate level technology in education course. Instead of focusing solely on content, prompts focused on allowing students an opportunity to tie all information they had been working on in their class to the overall problem they were addressing.
