This activity is an extension of FOSS in Courses 1 (Instructors). The goal of this activity is to have 1-3 topics and/or learning ideas to bring for discussion to the workshop and receive feedback on. We do not expect that these activities/ideas will be completely fleshed out, but rather provide an initial starting point to think about.
- Recalling your list of activities/topics from FOSS in Courses 1 (Instructors), identify the ways that these FOSS activities/topics can be structured. Possibilities include:
- In-class activity
- Stream of related activities
- List the revised activities on your wiki page. For each activity/topic:
- Identify some possible learning outcomes that should be fulfilled with the activities/task.
- Describe any prerequisite knowledge needed to complete the activity. This does not need to be a complete list.
- Estimate the time required for instructor prep, for student completion and elapsed calendar time. Are you going to have to synchronize your activity with the community or can the activity/topic be covered independent of the HFOSS community schedule.
- Think about possible input required from the HFOSS community. How much input is required and what kind?
- If the result of the activity is contributed back to the HFOSS project, describe the contribution and its usefulness.
- Describe the assessment/grading approach - What will the basis for grading be? Will this be a team activity or individual? Is there a role for the HFOSS community in helping assess student work? For instance, must the work be committed or otherwise accepted by the community?
- List any questions or concerns that you have about the activity/task.
- List any stumbling blocks or barriers to carrying out the activity/task.
