Technology has made communication between students and students, students and instructor much more accessible and easier. Taking advantage of the technology can facilitate active interactions between students and teachers by engaging students in the learning process. As the Adapted Physical Education (APE) and health courses involve in many health and disabling conditions that require individualized analysis through various strategies such as case-based discussion, video, service and observation, and hands-on demonstration, the proposed project is to incorporate the five Interaction-designed activities in individual and group projects to facilitate students’ active involvement in learning. The utilization of this interactive teaching/learning design, especially through blended learning approach (Moodle sharing and face-to-face discussions), creates great opportunities of communication and collaboration in/outside classroom to enhance teaching and learning effectiveness. In order to reach this ultimate goal, the proposed project is to: 1) to design and integrate five interaction-designed activities into Health, Exercise Physiology, and APE courses through Moodle Learning to facilitate students’ active communications and involvement; 2) to guide students to engage in the service and observation learning process to connect theory with practice; 3) to guide students to identify individual disabling conditions, and involving in the analysis of problem and determine the solution; and 4) to provide applicable templates which will demonstrate how to integrate these interaction designs into three courses through blended teaching/learning to create an active learning environment in/outside classroom to enhance students’ learning effectiveness.
