Making Learning Visible, Winter 2022: Celebrations of Teaching & Learning

Header of Making Learning Visible with two photos of student presenters in a blue rectangular box

The RISE Learning Institute hosts an event, Making Learning Visible, every quarter to celebrate teaching and learning.

Since classes are mostly remote due to precautions around COVID-19, Making Learning Visible for Winter 2022 is entirely online. The RISE Learning Institute encourages all Bellevue College faculty, staff, and students to attend any of these public presentations, explore these online poster showcases, or celebrate along with other graduating students. We plan to be back in person in Spring 2022.

View the student showcase below, and when you’re done, feel free to sign the Guest Book below!

While a storm rages outside the Queen City Speakeasy, drinkers dream, deal and deceive, singing songs from the 1920’s in the hottest jazziest bar in Seattle.

Tammi Doyle and Aimee Hong wrote a new musical set in Seattle in 1926 that provided the material for theatre arts drama, music and dance students to study the creation and preparation for a show and experience in performance. Members of BCDC (Bellevue College Dance Company) will also be involved under the direction of Jenna Spinea. (All named are BC Instructors.)

Peruse the products, creations, and papers developed by Bellevue College students this quarter.

Students are showcasing their final portfolios from this quarter. These e-portfolios, completed through Wakelet.com or google sites, represent a summative evaluation that teachers might share with families in an early learning program. The portfolio includes examples of formative assessments that might have been conducted throughout the year and represent children’s learning and progress.

Students completed their quarter-long projects on specific climate issues, such as coral bleaching, air pollution, climate (in)justice, and implemented their climate actions to raise awareness of these climate topics. Climate actions ranged from meaningful conversations with family and friends, infographics, social media campaigns, posters, videos, podcasts, etc.

Student Reflection about Project:

The most important think I learned from this project is how crucial spreading awareness
is. Awareness is the key for advocacy, and it is what can convince policy makers the
urgency of an issue. Raising awareness educates people on issues that they are unfamiliar
to them and encourages them to participate in bring change in this world. With this
project, I am now more interested in protecting our planet from pollution and spreading
awareness about climate change. I do think that I have gained better researching skills
with this project. I learned from chatting with our librarian how and where to find better,
more reliable sources for future research projects.

Students were asked to develop and present an infographic that displays an example of behaviors, practices, therapies that promote well-being, using principles from the biopsychosocial model. This project helps them describe how self and psychology applies to healthcare workplace settings. Students will identify and explain a well-being practice and why/ how it promotes well-being. They’ll provide background, relevant audience/ population that can benefit from the practice, and will share research on the practice from the literature.

For more information, contact Dr. Deepti Karkhanis.
