EDUCAUSE ELI Webinar: Iterative Design for Learning: Using Design Research and Prototyping to Innovate and Support Learning

In this webinar, Alan Foley will discuss the evolution of design research and how design research projects have been demonstrating the potential to innovate and support learning and to advance theoretical understandings of learning while also creating tangible learning environments. In this session Alan will illustrate how design research techniques including prototyping can be used in the development of instructional approaches, course design, and learning technology.

We had two events with the Orientation Leaders in the last two weeks. The Orientation Leaders are about 25 students who guide First Year and Transfer students when they come to campus during the summer to register (e.g. the groups on the mall in large circles with their bookstore bags). Then the OLs train the 200+ Welcome Week Leaders in late summer.

First was a 20 minute training session where we ask students to write and draw what they knew about the libraries and academic research. The couple of surprising things from the drawings....each one had books, computers, coffee but they also all had a pillar (e.g. Walter)!

The next session with the OLs was a recap of the top 10 things FY/Transfer students should know about the libraries...then a cavern tour. The students were very excited for this and Ryan did a great job leading the tour (p.s. we won't mention the elevator).
