ELU_Science_Kuwait University

Fall 2001- 2002_161(last updated: Spring 2003)

Instructor: Buthaina Al-Othman

Note: The Online activities, below, were first created differently, in Fall 2001-02 for the use of my ESP, EfS # 161 students.They have been, redesigned, modified, and developed for the second time in a new 161 CALL blended Unit, in July 2003, based on chapters from the required textbook, Englsih for Science, by Zimmerman. Unfortunately, I was unable to use the new Online Unit with students to test and evaluate; I was assigned to teach another ESP, EfS course # 162, in Fall 2003!

The new 161 Online Lessons were redesigned and modified, as a result of new learned experiences from and with Webheads' CoP. I am grateful, specially to Vance Stevens, Webheads Coordinator, for helping me through his online constructivist instructions and guidance to learn more and improve my e-learning skill. Also, I am greatly appreciative to Dafne Gonzalez, a Webhead in Action, for showing me/us through her Architecture Online Unit how to design an effective Online ESP Unit !
