ENGR313: Notes on teaching and preparing the course
The course will be automatically added to the course list every spring unless the registrar is contacted. If you want to update or change the course description you need to provide the information to Sheri's admin who can update the information an axess (preferablly by April 1st deadline). The room is automatically assigned every year by the registrar. The current request is for a room with 20 peope and no smart board (projector). Brittany in the ME students service offices can help if the room is not acceptable and she can conctact the registrar to request a new room.
Coursework is used to organize course materials (http://coursework.stanford.edu). To create a new site, log into coursework on the left side select "Worksite Setup" and click "New." Select the term and display courses for "sheppard." In the comments box: "Head TA wants to create site for Sheri Sheppard." Sheri will have to approve the creation of this coursework site. After approval has been given, copy the course from the year before to include files from previous years. Save files from previous year into a new folder (ex: 2011) and add files for the new course. The "Site Info" button on the left can be used to add instructors, TAs, and students. To set what files people can view or upload go to Materials > Permissions.
Evaluations and Reflections:
Changes to consider for 2012: Choose a stronger theme such as "assessment" or "active learning." Work with professors or classes to design reserach studies. Extend class time from 50 minutes to 60 or 75 minutes.
