The 7 principles…with technology

Several years back the AAHE (American Association for Higher Education) came out with a treatise entitled “the 7 principles of good practice in undergraduate education.” the article addresses how technology could implement those principles.

Barbara has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it.

She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.

    Barbara, I love your blog! I’m going to try some of your (through Todd @ Dickinson) suggestions for recording Skype, because I’m having just enough glitches with Gizmo to be annoyed.

    On the Chickering/Ehrmann article, BYU has an excellent summary of the original 7 principles article by Chickering and Gamson at http://www.byu.edu/fc/pages/tchlrnpages/7princip.html, which has links that break the principles down into very specific practices to implement. It would be nice for someone who had the time to do it to do something similar with the Chickering/Ehrmann article, a technology-specific breakdown of specific practices for the 7 principles.

    For language technologists, there is of course the article by Margaret Gonglewski in Foreign Language Annals 32 entitled “Linking the Internet to the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning.” Our EDCI students have found that to he a helpful resource.
