One of the gifts of teaching in a distance learning environment is the documentation that occurs as students complete and submit work. Each step of the thinking process is recorded digitally, and if a teacher is clever about how they pose their assignments, the maturation of an idea can easily be captured. In this 1.5-hour workshop, participants will learn techniques to document the development and refinement of student work. We will consider how an assignment can be modified to encourage students to reveal their thought processes and reflect on what triggers modifications or changes in thinking. Each participant will tailor the techniques to their own subject area skills to fit the learning objectives of their course.
