Do you think the Starboards are only good for a few “wows”? Our next TIG will discuss an article from Beauchamp and Parkinson (2005) which outlines going “beyond the ‘wow’ factor”. You can access the article here. Please read the 6-page article before the meeting and come prepared to discuss:
- Your favorite idea from the text.
- How could you apply the tools listed on page 98 to your classes?
- Review the skills on page 102. What skills are you missing?
Also, if you would like one-on-one help with Starboard, don’t hesitate to email me.
1-2 pm on
Wednesday, August 22nd in ILLC 253
Thursday, August 23rd in ILLC 255
Also, feel free to contact me for one-on-one Starboard help.
