Death of CMI at SoI at least for Fall 2005

Well it appears that today is the day that School of Informatics will have to pull the plug on my Computer-Mediated Instruction class, registration level equal one student.  The class has not filled for a number of reasons including marketing...I didn't know I was teaching the class early enough to get a good leg up on my preparatory reading in time to have anything about the class in writing soon enough to market it to students.  We shall fix that problem before the spring when I will be teaching a Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) class.

But at least I have another class I am prepared to teach, the syllabus is done all it needs is a completed "policy" section.  Of course that would vary from university to university and across subdivision within said universities so I don't think missing that part is a big deal.  If you are curious you can see a copy of my working CMI syllabus and let me know what you think about the design.  I will be doing notes for a class portfolio on this one, it took a lot of thinking and reading to design so I want some bang for the buck.

 I400 Topics in Informatics/Computer Mediated Instruction (3 cr.) This course will introduce students to the selected concepts of Computer-Mediated Instruction (CMI). The course is run as a seminar and students will be required to read and prepare for each class discussion. The semester is divided into three modules. First the class will examine the theories and techniques for developing training programs. The second module will look at ways that computers are used in the classroom with an eye to new and developing technologies that may be useful in classroom settings. The third module will focus on distance education including design and delivery issues. Students will be required to create and maintain a class related blog that will include their writing on class readings, discussions, projects, etc. Instructions on this requirement will be given early in the semester. Students will be evaluated on their preparation and participation, blog entries, three projects - one for each module, and a final examination. P: at least junior standing or permission of instructor. Variable topic. Emphasis is on new developments and research in informatics. Can be repeated twice for credit when topics vary, subject to approval of the dean.
