From workshop/sharehop

Dr. Stewart Ross, Director of CETL at Minnesota State University, offered a workshop at Doane on 5/21-22/2009 providing information on integrated course design, by L. Dee Fink, which is a model for designing a course that includes attention to components that are present in most all models of instructional design. The  model of integrated course design is contained in the "Self-Directed Guide to Designing Courses for Significant Learning."   One interesting instruction and assessment technique Dr. Stewart demonstrated was IF-AT: The Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique by Epstein Educational Enterprises.  IF-AT is a technique that can be used in the classroom that provides immediate affirmative feedback (if an answer choice is correct) and/or corrective feedback (if an answer choice is incorrect).
