Research Paper, Course Site, or Both?: My Experience with Islamic Civilization II

Presenters: Nabil Al-Tikriti

This past semester I experimented with a major pedagogical revision of a longstanding course of mine, Islamic Civilization II. Encouraged by Jim Groom and by my prior experience with Western Civiliztion II, I decided to replace a reading essay requirement that never really worked very well with a group course site assignment. In this presentation, I will review the results, as well as discuss questions of pedagogy, grading, and student outcomes.  Here’s the site: http://hist384s12.umwblogs.org/
