Teaching Strategies

Effective online instruction can be challenging and yet, if done correctly, can provide even higher rates of student success. 

In trying times, it is more important than ever to humanize the learning experience for our students. But how do we humanize an online course?

What are the Core Skills and Program Learning Outcomes expected of our students at SPCC and how to we integrate them into our curriculum?

South Piedmont Community College advocates Thinking, Learning, and Interacting as critical competencies for student achievement and lifelong learning in today’s global economy.  These critical competencies are supported by five (5) core skills with measurable learning outcomes which are integrated into the curriculum course instruction and activities.  The SPCC Core Skills and learning outcomes are:

Written Communication Core Skill: The learner will exchange ideas and information with others using written text in a manner effective and appropriate for the intended audience.

Oral Communication Core Skill: The learner will exchange ideas and information with others using the spoken word in a manner effective and appropriate for the intended audience.

Critical Thinking Core Skill: The learner will identify, interpret, analyze, or synthesize problems before developing and implementing solutions in a manner effective and appropriate for the intended audience.

Intercultural Competence Core Skill: The learner will demonstrate cultural awareness and objectivity through critical reflection.

Information Literacy Core Skill: The learner will locate, identify, evaluate, use, and disseminate information ethically and effectively.

Internationalization

How can we internationalization into our curriculum?  Check out these resources, videos, and classroom activities to find out how.

Curriculum Internationalization is the process of adding global, intercultural, or international elements into the content of the curriculum of a course. This opportunity will provide students with an international perspective in a variety of disciplines, will allow students to develop an understanding of various local and global issues that face our community, and allow our students to develop their cultural sensitivity by learning about new cultures.
