5/20/15 – For the third year in a row, this afternoon I’ll spend part of my Study Day taking part in West by Midwest, a gathering of Bethel University folks who want to share innovative ideas for teaching and course design. I’ll be reporting on my experience teaching our new Intro to History course as a hybrid, blending face-to-face seminar discussion, a weekly webisode, and a course blog. But the highlight will be a teaching simulation being previewed by international relations scholar Chris Moore. If you’re at Bethel or in the Twin Cities, we’ll be in HC 113 from 1:30-3:30pm. Otherwise, I’ll be live-tweeting the presentations at #WxMW.
