Remix Scholars: Giving Renewed Purpose to Reflective Practices
Remediation is a process where learners take their existing work and transform it by changing its form from one medium to another. Recently, remediation has been a hallmark feature of digital rhetoric, but this presentation will identify how it can successfully encourage students to use reflection for concrete and authentic experiences in a variety of disciplines. The presentation will also report on remediation design in Creative Writing classes at Penn State. In these classes, students reworked their written projects for a public context and a visual or digital medium in order to contribute to culture on campus or some virtual space.  In this session, participants will:

• Learn about remediation as a reflection strategy and a method for designing authentic, context-driven professional practices
• Explore how remediation supports metacognition differently than traditional revision or portfolio assignments
• Practice remediation with simple materials

We Don’t Need Roads: The Open Pathways of Learning Analytics
The landscape of learning analytics is vast, expansive, and unprescribed. Therefore, we created our own “DeLorean- system” to better understand learner behaviors and experiences in online course environments. In this session, we will share the development of learning design approaches to utilize data to support course design, development processes, and instructional practices to improve learning outcomes and experiences.

The Swiss Army Knife for Course Design & Implementation: OneNote
In the language of "Where were we?", OneNote by its name attempts to create a metaphor between the way we used to record and share information. However, OneNote is so much more than just a place to put one's personal notes. OneNote has transcended other tools in giving people a medium of digital expression.

In this workshop, you will get an opportunity to bring existing projects and course designs along with them to see how they can work in Microsoft OneNote for either design or implementation purposes. You will get to see examples of course designs and classroom applications of the tool. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to evaluate if OneNote is a Swiss Army Knife that can integrate into your daily practice. Also, you will be able to develop your own content in OneNote.

All participants will need to bring a device for this training. OneNote is available on both Mobile and Laptop devices and free to use.

Quality Matters at Penn State: Quality Assurance Tools for Everyone!
Quality Matters provides a research-based rubric for measuring the quality of online courses; a course management system for organizing and tracking course reviews; and several professional development offerings for faculty and instructional designers. The rubric can be applied at several points before, during, and after the online course development process.  

Over the past three years, the Penn State Quality Matters Pilot has put the rubric to use to meet the quality assurance and continuous improvement needs of individuals, small teams, and programs across the Penn State community.

In this session, a panel composed of faculty and instructional designers will discuss their participation in the pilot, their unique uses of the rubric and the impact of the course review experience. Panelists will share their stories but also engage the audience by answering questions about the course review experience and illustrating how QM may be useful to others.

Moving forward, we'll also share plans for Penn State's continued use of Quality Matters. Attendees will gain awareness of resources related to QM available to them, ideas for incorporating QM into their course development process and potential professional development opportunities related to QM. Attendees will also learn how to access QM resources through Penn State’s subscription and get an overview of the quality assurance tools available to them.

A Robot Who Laughs at Your Emotional Intelligence Knock, Knock Jokes
Plato once said, “All learning has some emotional basis.” 2,000 years later, as artificial intelligence enters as our fourth industrial revolution, emotional intelligence is knocking on the door louder. This door of learning closes when  the machine is doing a good enough job and humans stop paying attention. AI presents an exciting opportunity to re-think our designs and focus on capabilities that AI has trouble replicating. We will present ways we are implementing emotional intelligence into our designs in order to stay relevant in our profession.

Escape (to) the Library! Using “Breakout” Games to Develop Soft Skills
Feeling trapped by tradition? Puzzling over your next curricular outreach move? Join us for a discussion of the mechanics behind “breakout” style games, from locked-box puzzles to full-blown escape rooms. Used for library outreach, breakout games provide a unique opportunity for students to make friends and have fun – but, by teaching the value of teamwork, communication, time-management, and leadership, they also help students develop the skills necessary for group-work (and success) in any discipline. This presentation will include the good, bad, and surprising details of several different breakout games run by the presenter. Our discussion will also cover how to craft low-tech home-made puzzles, incorporate high-tech elements for maximum engagement, and achieve learning outcomes with a mix of hints and subterfuge. Participants will also have a hands-on opportunity to try out escape room puzzles designed for an audience of Penn State students.
