Similar to the ‘Showcase’ activity, students are first asked to create a hierarchy of categories and sub-categories in alignment with the phases of critical inquiry (triggering event, exploration, integration, and resolution).

Students then categorize their posts as one of the phases of CI, display them in a widget or on a page or post along with some reflections on the cognitive skills they used during the course.

This may be a good activity to do half-way through a course to allow students to make adjustments, if necessary.

The goal of this assignment is to have students choose and share what they think is their best work.

Students review their posts from the course, tag their best work with ‘Showcase’ or ‘Best Work’ or something similar, then share their work by displaying it on a showcase page or widget.

HT to Alan Levine on this one.
