Gina Bennett September 2011 Progress Report

Curriculum Design

Day-to-day work for September 2011

 

In the spirit of "working in the open", I will use this space to detail my day-to-day NANSLO design work for September. If the email notifications become oppressive for other users of this wiki I can take this work off-line.


 

Thursday September 1st:

 

Goal for today: create detailed workplan for the month, publish on curriculum development wiki.

 

Process:

  • review project documents detailing what needs to be done & by when
  • review upcoming project commitments & detail my responsibilities for each
  • organize tasks on the wiki & publish

 

This is a very busy time in my 'regular' job (startup tasks for the upcoming new academic year) so NANSLO work may be a struggle for the next week or so.

 

Friday September 2nd:

 

Goal for today: rekindle panel discussion & determine what work needs to be done before status report

 

Process:

  • summarize panel activity from the summer
  • identify what remains to be done before end of Sept.
  • post a 'welcome back' email to each listserv
  • determine current status for status report; identify critical tasks to be done before Sept. 10

 

Carry-forward for next week:

  • determine which chemistry lab will be used in RWSL demo at end of month
  • tweak it, upload it, make it available to chemistry discipline panel people

 

Tuesday September 6th - Friday September 9th:

 

This was the first week of classes for us so I was extremely busy with COTR work. What I *did* manage to accomplish:

 

  • summarized panel activity, posted to each listserv
  • contributed info related to the objectives I'm involved in for status report
  • identified the Conductivity lab for chemistry RWSL demo, reformatted it, uploaded it, & notified chemistry discipline panel people

 

Monday September 12th - Friday September 16th:

 

The second week of classes was equally busy (if not more so) with COTR work. Accomplished during this week:

  • maintained contact with listserv discussions (very quiet this week)
  • maintained contact with project partners generally
  • discussed RWSL training plan with Albert (technical side) & Ron (delivery side)
  • created a Moodle site to develop the RWSL training plan, showed Ron how to enter/edit it

 

... & generally tried to keep my head above water with multiple projects & the usual semester start-up issues ;-)

 

Monday September 19th - Friday September 23th:

 

The third week of classes & I'm still very busy with COTR work. Accomplished during this week:

 

  • maintained contact with listserv discussions
  • discussed workshop format, details with Catherine
  • worked with Irene & Catherine to develop a more detailed template/rubric to assess individual labs for Physics
  • tweaked the lab assessment template & circulated it to Chemistry & Biology facilitators too
  • began presentation re Open Courses for NANSLO next week
  • participated in an informal BC team meeting on Friday afternoon

 

Monday September 26th - Friday September 30th:

 

This week is dedicated to preparing the wiki & presentation for NANSLO workshop on Thurs. & Friday:

 

  • complete PowerPoint presentation about the status of our open course development
  • submit presentation to our BC partners for feedback
  • upload all Chemistry documents to wiki (NOTE: still very much in draft format but participants need something to work from!)
  • communicate with NANSLO partners, coordinate fine details of travel

 

I fly to Courteney-Comox on Wednesday; arriving at Comox airport around 1 pm on Wednesday. I'll be presenting about the NANSLO Open Courses on Thursday afternoon  & assisting with the panel discussion groups as much as possible.
