CIC Story 2: Opening to China

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Before we start with the presentation, we will have participants complete the first creativity exercise that students were asked to complete in our course, which we call the Shoe Tower exercise. Next, we will introduce CIC 2.0 course design innovations, which included translation of all course materials into Chinese; streamlining it along four key ideas, namely Creative Diversity, CENTER, Innovation, and Value Creation; introducing the peer review process; using 34 community TAs who had taken CIC 1.0; and shortening the course to six weeks and simplifying it. Then, we will turn to how students experienced the course and we will utilize findings from a post-course survey where students shared their input on what they liked the best and the least about the course. About 325 students provided textual feedback on the course in the post-course survey, and their entries will be analyzed qualitatively to find out the strengths and weaknesses of this unique course from the students’ perspective.
