Each week, I initiate opportunities to explore the subject matter through class discussion, the assignment of online forum discussions, and dropbox assignments. Through formative assessment of the learner’s weekly performance, I guide their successful examination and analysis of the subject matter. The course culminates in a final summative assessment that provides each student the opportunity to demonstrate their accomplished understanding.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final paper, which counts for 20% of the grade. The final paper requires that an artifact be developed to test at least seven of the eight course core objectives.

CS 300 is a “Blended” class that consist of traditional class work (3 hr/week) with papers and exams account for 68% of the assessment, while the non-traditional modality (active engagement, through participation, and on-line assignments) is a minimum 2 hr/wk and 32% of the assessment.
Blended classes increases the options for greater quality and quantity of human interaction in a learning environment.
Blended learning offers learners the opportunity “to be both together and apart.” A community of learners can interact at anytime and anywhere because of the benefits that computer-mediated educational tools provide. Blended learning provides a ‘good’ mix of technologies and interactions, resulting in a socially supported, constructive, learning experience; this is especially significant given the profound effect that it could have on multi-mode learning.
