Professor Notes on a Student Produced Learning Contract from Spring Semester Michael Creamer (a student from Spring semester) has been kind enough to let me share his learning contract with you. By the way they started the spring semester planning to do 2 projects so his contract will be slightly different than yours. Conceptually it is exactly what I was looking for. When you read his contract you know exactly what he intends to get out of this class, you know what will learn, and you know what he will do to show that he learned. In the gap analysis he used the competencies chart to make it clear what his skill level is now and what it will be at the completion of the course. This makes it easy for me to determine if he will be advancing during this course an amount that is commensurate with a graduate course. He could have combined the competencies and the gap analysis to save paper, but the point is he clearly communicated the information. He thoughtfully structured his learning objectives. He showed what he wanted to learn then in the resources and strategies column he delineated when and how he would do this. Now he has his map for the course. He can take this list and overlay it on the course overview chart to see exactly what he needs to do each week. EXCELLENT. Many of you will need this type detail. If you have been asking lots of questions and feeling like you don't know how to do these projects, you really need to work to make your contracts this detailed. I will not be guiding you on a weekly basis. You will be guiding yourself and this is the document that you will use to do this. Can you see how Michael has actually followed the steps of instructional design and designed his course? Notice also in the "Evidence of Accomplishment" column, has not just repeated the assignments for the course, but he has connected the products he will generate as he learns into the list. In the Validation of Evidence column he is succinct, but clear. I might add to his statement "based on clarity, depth, accuracy [and completeness] of information presented." The addition of completeness lets both you and I know that part of your evaluation will be based on the degree to which you complete your contract. Remember, this is your map to guide you and tell me how to evaluate you this semester. It is more important that it be detailed, smart, accurate, complete, and that it reflect what you WANT to get out of this class than it is that you get me a rough draft tonight.

Michael Creamer ITED 8300 Learning Contract Document Introduction During this semester, I will learn about two technologies of which I am not familiar with.

I will use PowerPoint to create a stand-alone learning module for elementary level students who have experienced divorce. While completing this module, students will read a story about a family who has experienced a divorce. Throughout the story, the student will be actively involved and will be prompted to answer certain questions by
