Dr. Barkley will go in-depth into three of these-- a contemporary issues journal, a digital story project, and a personal learning environment-- to provide you with a complete picture of how these activities can be used for any discipline and in any course. You'll also receive step-by-step instructions on how to structure these activities, a detailed explanation to introduce them to your students, and evaluation rubrics to asses results-- all of which can be customized for your particular courses.

Elizabeth Barkley holds a BA and MA from the University of California, Riverside, and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. After ten years as Dean of Fine Arts and Communications, she returned to the classroom, and created the course, Musics of Multicultural America. Organized on principles of universal design, the course attracts about 1000 very diverse students annually. As demand for the course increased beyond the capacity to deliver in traditional face-to-face format, she became a pioneer in online instruction and blended delivery.
