Rebecca Brigham is responsible for administering the School of Social Work Field Seminar program. The courses in the program were redesigned as hybrid courses with students alternating between one week in the classroom followed by one week online. Sakai is used to bridge the learning and conversations that occur in the classroom as well as off-site in students’ individual fieldwork locations.
In particular, the 8 sections of Field Seminar tend to use only a few Sakai tools — primarily the Discussion Forum and the Gradebook. Because only a few tools are used, students and faculty find the course sites easy to navigate and use.

When we published the Sakai Pilot Evaluation Final Report, we knew that most people would prefer a visual summary rather than reading the 74-page document or even the Executive Summary. We hope that the 15-slide summary below will do just that. For the nitty-gritty details, however, please see the report.
