Second connecting activity

I think I got a little overly ambitious on this one, but will have more to report tomorrow after I meet with both of my public speaking sections today.

Basically, I had all of my students self-produce an informative speech video, upload to Blackboard, and then conduct a small group peer review using a grading rubric I gave to them.  Inevitably there were issues on the front end (what kinds of files to produce, hardware used, etc.), uploading, downloading :), etc.

However, I think we might be past the worst of the issues and ready for the peer review aspect of the activity which is really the heart of the interactive learning activity.

  1. Robert,

    I like your idea of conducting peer review using a rubric. Is this rubric online? Can students access their rubric scores? Will they know who reviewed their work? If students know who is reviewing their work and if they get a bad score they might do the something to that student. Maybe you will answer my questions when you talk about your assignment today at the meeting.
