Update From the 2015 Award Winner
Our 2015 TRPP Innovation Award winner, Nic Voge, is making excellent progress with his project, Principedia. We wish Nic continued success with this exciting venture and look forward to presenting a webinar with him early in 2016.
What is Principedia?
Principedia is a first of its kind crowd-sourced wiki-encyclopedia which collects, gathers and circulates information about learning methods and processes in one campus community.
Students reflect on and analyze how they were taught and tested and describe HOW they learned in a specific course.
Students work together to share effective strategies and techniques for learning.
Students post their descriptions and approaches on the Principedia wiki for all students, faculty and staff to access and use.
Here is the video about Principedia.
"We are working closely with a faculty member who teaches organic chemistry on campus. I shared with him an analysis of his course and he was wowed. He sees possibilities for that analysis not only to be elaborated and shared with students, but to serve as the basis for training of the course Teaching Assistants. I’m also working on getting a link to Principedia from the registrar page so that it is easily accessible to students and advisers during course selection."
