Lit review Lecture by Dr. Schlosser
I'd like to organize my reflection from "Big Picture" to microcosm

1. Thoughts about distance learning in general (from 10,000 feet)
Since coming to ITDE, and since taking distance learning classes, I've come to see the value in separating the lecture from the class discussion. Making time for reflection has become very important for me and I've tried to persuade other teachers to do this, even in face to face lectures.
I'm trying to figure out how to get my students to do the lecture at home so that when they are in the room they can do their work. There is something about face-to-face that has so many possibilities, I don't what to waste the opportunity to simply lecture the students.
I'm almost wondering if ITDE might demonstrate this at the future conferences by giving its presentation on a CD and asking people to watch the CD on Weds evening and then walk into the Thurs presentation ready to discuss information.
In other words, the sessions when you introduce the program might follow the same format.
Dr. Orellana, when you were presenting the information about the ITDE coursework at summer session, you gave a great presentation about how you experienced the work. I can imagine that such a presentation could be videotaped, so that we all could have watched something before we walked in and we could have told you our reflection of the preview.
I find the value of Dr. Schlossser's lecture OFFLINE (without using WIMBA or Elluminate) is great because then the eliminate time can be used to answer questions and have a discussion.
Does that make sense? In other words, at summer conference, why not model what a typical class is about….
a) asynchronous presentation, receiving info at a different time,
b) discussion in the class at the conference, with participants explaining what they learned from the presentation.
So when Dr. S. was talking, I had a "big picture" moment thinking about the future of education.
2. 1000 feet up: the structure of the presentation
I like the consistency of Dr. Schlosser's work.
he talks around the points, he doesn't just read the slide.
3. 10 feet over: the lit review process
This presentation gave such good step-by-step instructions that I feel I don't need to go to any more workshops about "how to do a lit review." The steps are there.
The warning about the lit review -- less than 30 pages long is bad! 100 references is a nice goal.
4. on the ground: a particular slide.
I'm looking at "Let's review the Assignment" slide.
I particularly like the clear layout of the rubric with points and the structure shows how to put a rubric together.

"useful if not necessarily interesting"… (I think this is funny, he says the same
…e "don't hesitate to contact me by email -- or even better by telephone." Those are two Schlosser signature phrases…

Great approach of summarizing. i actaully like your suggetsions for ITDE. SO you think the ITDE faculty should give these asynchronous presentations to ITDE students, then during Summer Conference we recap and/or reflect on the session as a group (faculty and students)? Hmmm... I will like to hear more about this idea so I can propose something to the ARC. How about if you email me details on your idea?
