Pathways Model

  • Status:
    • We have a “good enough” model (see the “Pathways Model” folder in DropBox)
  • Review Existing Pathways
    • What pathways could Greg and Stoney use in winter/spring classes? Plan for those.
  • Build a rubric for assessing pathways? - what are we trying to assess? Do we only need to check completeness of pathway?
  • Define a way to track how activities map to pathways and usage of pathways by instructors
    • Add column to activity to link to learning activity?
    • Do we need a link back from learning activity to pathway?
  • Also need Pathway assessment - follow a pathway and execute the steps and report back
    • GH, HE, and NCC may have some students who can do this
  • POSSE Roundup - Map learning activities to pathways
  • Define further pathways - existing set in Dropbox
