Inspiring Students to Take Ownership of Their Learning

Dr. Josephine Taylor shares how her students have taken ownership of their learning with Packback

Dr. Josephine Taylor uses Packback in her junior-level mycology course and has been impressed with the level of excitement students have shown in their learning. Since Packback requires students’ to ask open-ended questions, Dr. Taylor notices students using the platform to explore the class content that is of most interest to them.

“[With Packback, students] feel like they have an impact and input into what we’re learning in mycology this semester,” says Dr. Taylor.

 “I’m using Packback in my junior-level Introduction to Mycology course. Packback has proven to be a wonderful forum by which my students can expand upon the content covered in class in areas that intrigue them. They’re very excited about contributing to the learning of the class. I hear them talking about the Packback questions and how they are excited to get responses from their classmates…So I think it’s been a wonderful addition for an outside-of-class activity that has contributed to the overall quality of the course.”
