Teaching Artifacts

Some of the different teaching artifacts I have created are displayed below.  The artifacts on this page are representative of my pedagogical style and teaching philosophy.  I have provided a brief context to help better explain the assignment.

1.  E-Portfolio Tutorial
This video was developed to teach students how to develop their e-portfolios at their own pace.  As each student works at different levels with technology, this tutorial allowed students to work individually and develop their own, personalized e-portfolio.  Similarly, I often create audio/visual lectures for students to learn more outside of the classroom.  On the following page you will find some other audio/visual lectures I have created.

2.  In-Class Socratic Seminar
With each of the readings, classes are encouraged to discuss in different ways.  Socratic seminar seems to have been the biggest hit and the most successful by far.  It has proven to stimulate students to engage in scholarly conversations.  





3.  Audio Commenting
This year I have experimented with audio commenting on student papers.  Overwhelmingly students have preferred this method of commenting because they can hear the intonation in my voice, follow along with my voice, replay the comments, and listen wherever they are.  Though I am still perfecting my audio commenting, I too prefer this method because I can say much more in 5 minutes than I could write.

Google Audio Player. Advance by step.

4.  Peer Review
As a part of the writing process, students were required to review each others' work and provide insightful advice.



5.  NIU Showcase of Student Writing
Students presented their own research at a university-wide showcase.  Below are excerpts of my students discussing both secondary and primary research on their topic.
