A subgroup of the HLS Clinical Standards Task Force members created four illustrative scenarios of student practice situations, accompanied by questions on ethical decision making. HLS Teaching, Learning & Curriculum staff produced a proposed design, and met with clinical professors to gather input. Once design decisions were in place, the PITF produced videos of the scenes using animation software, and recorded voiceovers of the dialogue. The videos were embedded in a Captivate tutorial which included quizzes, prompts and hints for incorrect questions, links out to additional instructional materials, and a feature to track student completion. The output was a flash product that could also be delivered in pdf form. Faculty were given the option to place the tutorial within their course iSites.
This PITF project created information and consolidated online resources for all model and prototyping resources at the GSD - including tutorials, sign-up sheets, webcams, information data, and user settings on how test to use and implement the resources such as the cnc tools, robotic devices,laser cutters, 3D rapid prototyping, and digital input devices.
With the help of a PITF, Professor Levinson created a web-based self-paced tutorial consisting of five lessons that students could walk through at their own pace. Each section included exemplars and hyperlinks to supplement materials tailored for the particular tutorial allowing students to “teach themselves.” Among these exemplars was a complete student paper that students were able to download and use as a model.
