Redesign of CST 101 [Tech Tools]
“Tech Tools” (formally titled CST 101) is a course offered by the CSU Monterey Bay (CSUMB) Information Technology and Communications Design (ITCD) department in collaboration with the CSUMB Library. In teaching the CSUMB senior Capstone preparatory classes, CSUMB librarians have found that students in large measure have forgotten many of the concepts and skills taught in the CST 101 “Tech Tools” course they took as first-year or sophomore students. In this seed project, the course team will be learning how to apply Transforming Course Design to improve the outcomes and reduce the costs of CST 101. Nine other classes at CSUMB provide Tech Tools-type content, often making use of the Tech Tools curriculum and assessments. The Tech Tools course redesign will produce reusable resources and assessment tools for these courses to employ.
