My job focuses on the promotion of Full Spectrum Learning and the research behind it. I work with Academic Technology to explain and advocate for the benefits of Full Spectrum Learning throughout the St. Norbert Campus Community. I work with another student, Ruthie Tucker, to research and support this initiative.
Full Spectrum Learning
Full Spectrum Learning shows the wide variety of course pedagogies available throughout the campus community. Through a grid system, courses are placed based on their level of technology and professor interaction. Ideally, by the time a student graduates, they will have experienced a wide variety of teaching styles in their experience to have the best variety of skills for the future.
Goals for the Experience
I have developed and refined four separate themes to guide and focus my time while working. They encompass a wide variety of skills and tactics around working in a group, the campus community, videos, and designing websites.
These are my goals for the first year of the fellowship:
- Understand the different styles of teaching and types of learning around the campus community.
- Learning how to communicate in a group to gain teamwork skills
- Become more fluent in shooting and editing videos
- Develop a deeper understanding of WordPress and how to develop a more functional website.
My refined and updated goals for the second year of the fellowship are:
- Gain a deeper understanding of Google Forms and Google Sheets formulas and how that data can correspond to a visualization of data through Data Studio
- Understand how to become an effective leader of a group of students and how to effectively communicate and assign tasks to others
- Understand on a deeper level the customization and plugin options in Elementor and WordPress themes (also comes from working with TechBar)
- Organize and develop the Student Explanation Video with other team members, that will be shown on the Full Spectrum Learning site and shown to students before recording
