International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conferences on Education Technologies (ICEduTech) and Sustainability, Technology and Education (STE) (New Tapei City, Taiwan, December 10-12, 2014)
A graduate course, ETEC543 ("Technology and Learning I"), was revised to better serve increasing new student population, international students, in an academic program. Project-based learning, Google Docs, and instructional strategies fostering diversity and critical thinking were incorporated into the course redesign. Observations, surveys, and instructor's reflective journaling were used to collect data for the project evaluation. The results indicated that the course redesign was beneficial for student learning and reduced distance between native speakers and students born in foreign countries.
