by

Last week I asked what connected learning would look like in a humanities course. I found my answer through Dr. Laura Gibbs, who teaches online courses for the University of Oklahoma in mythology and folklore and epics of Ancient India.

Open Passage

Metacognition and other reflections on Week Two

by

This week was devoted to learning how learning theories translate into more practical instructional design methods, and researching experiential learning as an instructional theory.
