The Guide is designed to facilitate your learning as you develop and construct Assignment Paper #1 and #2 in the course. We will try to make some of the basic research and writing processes associated with undergraduate academic work more transparent in a step-by-step manner to students as beginning, novice undergraduate researchers.
Why Blended Learning?
Many of us are conditioned, to a certain degree, to regurgitate what we learn in the class and by reading the textbooks up to high-school years. If this is true with you, the assignments in this course will be something more involved than what you are accustomed to. How to read the sources in the literature--screening, digesting, assessing, and analyzing for the purpose of what you intend to develop/write/express--these are the foundational research skills. The objective of blended learning, therefore, is to guide you in this process.

We have designed and developed a blended learning environment in conjunction with Assignment #1 and #2 for the course. We are interested in your learning experiences associated with these assignments.
How are we gathing data/information to explore student learning experiences?
