E-learning, Intelligent tutoring system, CTAT
The purpose of this team project is to make a CTAT tutor for Professor Vaishnav’s students in the graduate level Climate Change Science and Adaptation class. In this tutor, learners will do hands-on calculations for Earth’s equilibrium temperature, in the case when there is no atmosphere, 1 layer, and 2 layers of the atmosphere. The steps of the tutor might correspond to calculating the solar power output, energy flow in and out the planet system, and the equilibrium temperature. The calculations are intended to reinforce their higher-level understanding of the effect of CO2 on the climate. Therefore, we may also try to incorporate some interpretation and self-explanation tasks. Since there is another group working on the same topic, we plan to further discuss how to split the tasks between the two groups.
This studio art course will help students understand and practice with drawing perspective, drawing composition, drawing light and shadow. In this studio course, students will practice intensively in the in-class drawing sessions and homework assignments. Students will also gain a deeper understanding of the targeted knowledge from the critique sessions.
