Well, that didn’t take long for plans to change… unexpectedly I have been asked to teach CMPT-363 once again spring so I am now heads-down in planning the course while considering what I learned from my students in the second fully online CMPT-363 this past fall at SFU. Some key changes will include trying a student open mic Q & A, a new weekly review quiz tutorial, a new term project, more frequent session mini-breaks, and a somewhat revised approach to the student-generated final exam.

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted something here… I’ve been full-steam ahead learning from my students in the first fully online CMPT-363 this summer at SFU.

While not originally planned, I am very excited to teach CMPT 363 User Interface Design once again this fall. I’ve already been working on some structural course changes based on feedback from this summer’s students, and more still to do.

For students not in other Canvas LMS courses a multi-device site with Canvas links is available, and for students in other Canvas courses content is seamlessly embedded into Canvas.

I can’t wait to connect with my new students in September, but in the meantime I will try to sneak in the last bit of summer🙂

I hope that you are safe and keeping connected with those you care about in these emotionally and physically challenging times.

With all SFU courses moving online this summer I decided to apply to teach CMPT 363 User Interface Design several weeks ago, and just this week learned that the additional section of the course would go ahead. For students not in other Canvas LMS courses a multi-device site with Canvas links is available, and for students in other Canvas courses content is seamlessly embedded into Canvas.

I am really looking forward to learning with my students once again!
