How do you design introductory courses (with majors and non-majors) to achieve rigor, currency, and interest without scaring away the non-technical students? Innovative one-shots are activities that can be completed in one class session and be tailored to add innovation and freshness to the course each semester. This session describes three examples from a recent IST course: augmented reality activity, IST 110 game to explore new ed-tech tools, and Stanford University’s dSchool Crash Course. More are described at the link below
