Course: Foundations Seminar: Neuroethics and Society
Faculty: Judith Grisel
DP&S Liaison: Matt Gardzina
Date: Summer 2014, course taught Fall 2014 & Fall 2015
Frustrated that she couldn’t find an appropriate textbook in the emerging field of neuroethics and with her students’ shuffling readings during class, professor Judy Grisel (psychology) implemented a novel solution in her first-year seminar. Collaborating with an instructional technologist and librarian, Grisel designed a course where students interacted with multiple types of resources on a single digital device (iPads), thereby enhancing and enriching class discussions. Building on the innovative ways students had begun to use these multimodal materials, Grisel then challenged them to jointly author the textbook they never had.
