So I’m supposed to pick a topic that will ultimately flush itself out as a project that will be implemented over the course of second semester. I can’t even figure out what I’m having for dinner tonight, never mind something I will solely be responsible for, for a five month period. Sure, I’m an idea person, but my ideas usually involve an implementation time period of 1 -5 days, not months. Bottom line, I don’t know what to do. I’ve had a few ideas, but they all sort of fizzle out as I try to sequence them out.
Idea 1: Infuse graphics into visual presentations (Back to School Night PPT, Science PPT, Course Brochure and so on) These visuals have been rather traditional in nature and could use a spruce up.
Idea 2: Flipped Out, oops, I mean Flipped Classroom. There are some topics I teach that are rather detailed focused in nature. I’m sure students would benefit from instructional videos at home and more practice with me. (Balancing Chemical Formulas, Chemical Bonding, Calculating Distance is Space)
Idea 3: Just kidding, that’s all I got. As stated earlier, I’m struggling with this.
