30 Surprising (And Controversial) Ways Students Learn - Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As teachers we must ue the tools at hand to engage our students.  No great insight here, but it does take an act of open minded intent to set aside our biases and really teach in the 21st century.

My Students Don’t Like Group Work

Students don’t always like working in groups. Ann Taylor, an associate professor of chemistry at Wabash College, had a class that was particularly vocal in their opposition.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 13, 1:36 PM
I found group activities had to be preceded by teaching and that feedback from the teacher was essential throughout. I applied my hockey coaching. If it was only one or two students, I would give one-on-one. If it was a large number of students, I would stop the class and revisit concepts. What did they understand? That was a central question. I asked what they understood. Quite often, students were unable to tell me what they did not know.

A framework for making decisions about your teaching is provided, while understanding that every subject is different, and every instructor has something unique and special to bring to their teaching.The book enables teachers and instructors to help students develop the knowledge and skills they will need in a digital age: not so much the IT skills, but the thinking and attitudes to learning that will bring them success.

"Although the book contains many practical examples, it is more than a cookbook on how to teach. It addresses the following questions: is the nature of knowledge changing, and how do different views on the nature of knowledge result in different approaches to teaching? what is the science and research that can best help me in my teaching? how do I decide whether my courses should be face-to-face, blended or fully online? what strategies work best when teaching in a technology-rich environment? what methods of teaching are most effective for blended and online classes? how do I make choices among all the available media, whether text, audio, video, computer, or social media, in order to benefit my students and my subject? how do I maintain high quality in my teaching in a rapidly changing learning environment while managing my workload? what are the real possibilities for teaching and learning using MOOCs, OERS, open textbooks?"

These courses are a distillation of the key elements found in IDL6543 that other institutions may use—as is, or modified—to train their own faculty.
