Student Work Matters

Attended by: Gwen

prep work must be done on campus before beginning implementation
shift campus from content focus to “metacognition”
develop/prioritize “culture before feature”
student engagement more important than administrative support
don’t frame as being driven by assessment; instead, it’s about student work

key first steps:
try a few pilots
showcase the results (Celebration of Scholarship?)

eP not just archive for best work, but can be used at every stage
e.g. various drafts in comp class, including handwritten notes

designate one computer lab as the eP lab staffed by “student technology mentors” to train faculty and other students

Q: what technical skills must students have? A: no more than for Facebook
