ETK 604

Digital Storytelling Lab

A course offered in the Educational Technology master's program. Students from all programs are welcome to take this course.

Next offered: Spring 2018 semester.

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the essentials of good educational storytelling in a digital format. You get your hands e-dirty with the essence of audio production: recording, editing, mixing, and sharing. We start by identifying a story you want to tell, then moving through the writing, recording, editing, and mixing processes. In fact we go through this cycle of steps twice so you get a decent amount of practice at each skill.

L&I 700

Cognitive Psychology

First year doctoral course for L&I students. We explore the thinking and research behind 9 key learning strategies.

Next offered: Spring 2018 semester.

This course provides an overview of some of the most important research in educational psychology over the past 25 years. We explore a subset of cognitive psychology research: the body of research exploring effective learning strategies. Overall the course provides instruction in three areas: strategies for learning, thinking like a researcher, and making connections between theory and practice.

GED 706

Applied Statistics

The Applied Statistics course provides an introduction to statistical analysis for doctoral-level students.

Next offered: Fall 2018 semester.

Statistical analysis is all about reasoning under uncertainty. Given that we almost never have complete information, how do we make the wisest decisions possible using the available evidence? This isn’t a simple process and is one we’ll explore throughout the semester. In addition to making decisions, we also want to have a sense for the potential practical impact of the decision.
