What we will do about it? • Students' attention span is approximately 15 minutes so we will refresh by changing activities every 10-15 minutes. • Apply new models of Learning
Methods To introduce the theory and basic concepts Lectures (Active Learning) Assignments (individual/Group) Tutorials (workshops/discussion sessions) Case studies Class group activities and competitions To develop SW development experience and team work skills: Experiential learning (learning by doing) project oriented approach. Students work in teams (5/6 students)
You're probably bored by now So lets do something different………….
Activity: Getting to know you Take out a piece of paper and write the following: • Your name • Your favorite color • Your IT skills • Your hobbies • What you expect from this course?
Assessment Assessment is more than grades:To many, the word "assessment" simply means the process by which we assign students grades. Assessment however is a mechanism for • providing me with data for improving my teaching methods, and • guiding and motivating students to be actively involved in their own learning. As such, assessment provides important feedback to both instructors and students.
Exams Schedule • Will be posted on the course blog • Exams will be on Saturdays • Time: at the beginning of the lecture • Duration: 10-15 minutes • Style: Multiple Choice questions
