The following questions will be considered:

  • What are the benefits of using PCL in a traditional, face-to-face, classroom setting?
  • How can PCL be used in an asynchronous, virtual learning setting to foster social interaction and engagement among students (beyond the Discussion Board)?
  • Will Canvas be up to the task, at UCC?
  • What are some opportunities for UCC, its staff, students, and you if instructional design incorporates the PCL approach?
