Inspired by DS106, an open course on digital storytelling, CT101 is based on the central idea that students should a) have the ability to “own” their own online space and a “domain of their own” and b) there is value in student centered teaching. This practice, extolled in Mary Ellen Weimer’s book, Learner Centered Teaching, has been a guiding principle for me as a professor. My syllabus for CT 101 digital storytelling was reframed to encourage students to practice creating and reflecting on their own digital presence. Also, I am eager to give students broad latitude to succeed in a course in a way that is self-directed where they set their own goals and pre-define their own success. The result has been increased student focus and deliverables and certainly an unleashing of on-line creativity on their part.
