Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching

Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Maryellen Weimer, PhD:


Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there. I suspect it has an even wider application. Most of the items on the inventory are or could be practiced in most disciplines and programs

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This inventory, published by the University of British Columbia was developed by an impressive team from Canada, headed by Nobel Prize winning physicist Carl Wieman.  Fine research. Deep and worth the dive.

The DOHS must have broad understanding of technology and the role that technology plays in Stanford OHS. 


As Stanford OHS is a school that attracts highly academically and intellectually motivated students, it is highly desirable that the DOHS have experience with gifted education, particularly the range of course options presently being made available students by the recognized gifted centers and talent search programs. The DOHS must also be intimately familiar with the education system of the US, including public, private, and homeschooling, and at the secondary and university levels.

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog


"One of the best gifts teachers can give students are the experiences that open their eyes to themselves as learners. Most students don’t think much about how they learn. Mine used to struggle to write a paragraph describing the study approaches they planned to use in my communication courses. However, to be fair, I’m not sure I had a lot of insights about my learning when I was a student. Did you?
As fall courses start to wind down, it’s an apt time for reflection. Here are some pithy (I hope) prompts that might motivate students to consider their beliefs about learning."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Maryellen Weimer provides us with a list of well crafted and thought provoking prompts for reflection.  This kind of thinking (and responding) is essential for both students and teachers.

sian etherington's curator insight, November 24, 9:40 AM

Reflecting on your own learning as a teacher is very helpful for thinking about your own students' learning and your own approaches to teaching.

Claire Brooks's curator insight, November 24, 5:01 PM

good prompts for developing reflective practice about self as learner. Might work in with some aspects of Learning Analytics too.

Audrey's curator insight, Today, 12:15 PM
Questions such as the two below are very helpful in getting students to think about their own learning and to take responsibility rather than waiting for the teacher to always direct them: Say, for example, you don’t think you’re any good at math, or that you can’t write or draw, what happens when you have to do these things? Does what you believe about yourself as a learner have any effect on how you perform?Have you ever learned something you didn’t think you could learn? What? How did you feel once you had learned it?

 

 I recently asked students to do work they had not been asked previously to do.  The result was:  all 13 students performed very well. They had to write and think in different ways. I asked them to write an essay in 25 minutes on a topic they had not previously studied.  

 

The other topic was: to make sentences using homonyns.   A  homonyn is a word that is spelt the same or sounds the same as another word but is different in meaning, e.g. ate and eight; berry and bury; red and read.  

 

Although the majority of the students were foreign and were learning English as a second language, they were able to complete the task exceptionally well.  They were allowed to work in twos but none of them consulted a dictionary.  All of them completed 10 sentences using homonyns such as:   bore/boar; birth/berth; bald/bawled; pray/prey; principle/principal; missed/mist, etc ....without asking me the meanings.

 

What this demonstrates is that in the right environment / atmosphere a person will  use their brain processes.  What educators should always be doing is encouraging the intake of knowledge in a variety of contexts, situations: students should visit museums,  banks to learn real mathematics; House of Parliament to question politicians, etc....

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

  I work with many beginning online teachers who are struggling to get started actually teaching online. UDEMY is one way to create your own opportunities as you develop real world experience. 


Building a free course is a way to also build your credibility and expand your network. Developing a course and charging a fee is a way to make money teaching online. 


Either path will teach you a lot about instructional design, video and audio production, and social media marketing. 


So why not add a UDEMY course to your resume and gain some experience while you are applying for online jobs?

With Sprout, HP bets on remaking the PC as a 3D maker tool | ZDNet

With Sprout, HP bets on remaking the PC as a 3D maker tool | ZDNet | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
It's called Sprout by HP and it's an all-in-one PC that looks similar to an iMac, but sports a small digital projector on the top of the monitor that projects down onto a mat (where the keyboard would normally be) and creates a second screen that is fully touch-enabled and also works with a digital pen. And the projector also serves as a 2D image scanner and a full 3D scanner for digitizing real world objects.

CNET first take on Sprout
That's the hardware. The software involves what HP refers to as an "apperating system" called Workspace. It sits on top of Windows 8 and the computer boots directly into this HP environment to access a suite of creative tools. HP has Microsoft's support on this, which is a first in terms of a third party being sanctioned to bypass Windows and boot into their own environment.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a tool to support a "maker space" environment for 3D design. Not what you need at home? Perhaps not, but an amazing bit of affordable tech for any team looking to do quick prototyping. I see this as a computer lab/maker space station that helps bring ideas to life.

Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started)

Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
For great educators, teaching is a calling more than an occupation. That’s why educators spend so much of their time not only teaching in and beyond the classroom, but also constantly learning themselves, exploring every avenue that can make them more effective (like using Twitter for professional development).


So why would they take the time to blog at all, much less regularly? And is it something every educator should consider? To find out, we asked six Milken Educators with regular blogs on different topics to share their insights. What we learned was that there is no one reason to blog, but myriad reasons and benefits for doing so.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I owe my start in online teaching and learning to the Milken Family Foundation.  Back in '95 I became a Milken National Educator.  The world changed. My access to information and ideas grew and my teaching spirit soared.  The MFF is still doing the good work!
