CEP 810- TEACHING FOR UNDERSTANDING WITH TECHNOLOGY

Christopher Sloan, Ph.D.
Alison Keller
CEP 810 introduced theories of learning and understanding as well as the Technological, Pedagogical, and Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework. Discussions centered on A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger. In this course, I presented a special interest project focused on developmentally appropriate practices for technology integration in the early years.

CEP 811- ADAPTING INNOVATION TECHNOLOGIES IN EDUCATION

Christopher Sloan, Ph.D.
Alison Keller
In this course, we experienced Maker Ed and some of the associated tools- Makey Makey, little bits, microbits, Osmos, VR and AR, and more. We applied TPACK theory and design thinking to construct a Maker Ed learning experience for our own context. I created a Kindergarten architecture unit which emphasized descriptive vocabulary in my dual-immersion context.
Summer 2018CEP 812- APPLYING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY TO ISSUES OF PRACTICE

Christopher Sloan, Ph.D.
Alison Keller
This course required the application of TPACK theory to “wicked problems” in education. With a partner, I examined how to sustain innovation in schools in spite of administrative turnover. Additionally, we explored the principles of Universal Design for Learning and the importance of considering the needs of all learners when planning instruction. This course emphasized the use of digital tools to improve the learning experience for all.
Summer 2019CEP 800- LEARNING IN SCHOOLS AND OTHER SETTINGS

Liz Owens Boltz, Ph.D.
Sean Sweeney
In this course we explored the application of the Technological, Pedagogical, and Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework to the complete learning process. With particular attention to the impact of context on these knowledge areas, we critically evaluated different learning theories and their impact on learners. In the process, we analyzed a problem of practice unique to our own classroom and engaged in the design thinking process to design a meaningful learning opportunity for students to overcome this problem.
Summer 2019CEP 815- TECHNOLOGY AND LEADERSHIP

Liz Owens Boltz, Ph.D.
Sean Sweeney
This course explored the effect of technology how we teach and lead. We looked at technology from various perspectives to assess benefits and challenges within various contexts. Projects explored professional development strategies, project management, planning, evaluation, relationship building, along with the ethical and social implications of technology. Through collaborative groups, we offered a series of professional development sessions around artificial intelligence and ethics in technology.
Summer 2019CEP 822- APPROACHES TO EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH

Liz Owens Boltz, Ph.D.
Sean Sweeney
This course provided an overview of research methods including: qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods. Using data from responses collected at the MACUL conference, we analyzed responses related to creativity in education.
Summer 2020CEP 807- CAPSTONE IN EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

Dr. Matthew Koehler
Aric Gaunt
While developing a showcase portfolio, this course required synthesizing theory, research, and course concepts to identify the impact on my professional career.
Summer 2020CEP 813- ELECTRONIC ASSESSMENT FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING

Christopher Sloan, Ph.D.
Alison Keller
This course looked at the history of assessment practices, motivations for assessment, and how these factors relate to electronic assessment methods. I created an assessment design checklist to ensure assessments are effective and appropriate, developed a formative assessment for computational thinking in kindergarten, and challenged my assumptions about assessment.
Summer 2020CEP 820- TEACHING STUDENTS ONLINE

Liz Owens Boltz, Ph.D.
Anne Heintz, Ph.D.
This course addressed the affordances and constraints of teaching students online. I gained the skills to evaluate and create effective online course content with consideration for accessibility. We applied the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to provide robust, flexible, and appropriate learning activities for all. This knowledge was demonstrated through the creation of an online professional development course module for early childhood educators to better understand and apply the concepts of design thinking in their classroom.

Spring 2017EADM 511 – LEADERSHIP, ORGANIZATION, AND ADMINISTRATION

Glenn Brown
This course focused on the role, development, and assessment of leaders in schools and learning organizations. By surveying research and problems of practice, I gained awareness of the challenges of high achieving schools. The Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards framed this learning.
