Is lecture really the thing that needs fixing? By Robert Talbert

Is lecture really the thing that needs fixing? By Robert Talbert | Education - online learning | Scoop.it

Based on the headline and framing of the article, you might be tempted to think that the problem is that lecture is ineffective and that data might be able to fix it. But that’s not really it. (Nor is the problem that students are stupid and lazy, which you might get from the comment section.) Actually I think Samson himself nails the problem:

He is not shy about admitting where teaching falls on the list of priorities for most of his peers: a distant third, after publishing articles and landing research grants. “Instructors want to do the right thing,” he says. “They’re just busy guys, and they don’t sense that the bean-counting is heavily weighted toward the teaching.”

In that one quote, you get everything you need to know about why traditional instructor-centered teaching still reigns supreme on many university campuses, despite mountains of evidence, not to mention anecdotes, that interactive-engagement methods are far more effective. It all boils down to that one word:Priorities.

Michelle Allwright's insight:

Interactive, engaging and the learning around core skills is where it is heading. It's about ensuring that the students are industry ready; not just theory ready.

Here's a bit of insight: Professors should also be teachers, colleges should make teaching a priority, teaching skills should be rewarded.


You know what they say about should... Still it's a clean, simple, low tech solution a major problem in the college classroom. 

Jim Goldsmith's curator insight, August 20, 5:18 PM

A number of good points made about priorities in higher education; also, some intelligent disussion in the comment sections from (mostly) learning peers.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 22, 2:13 AM

" If you really want something to happen, you make it a priority and make the time. I have to conclude that I think many universities, and sadly many faculty, say that they want effective teaching and high student performance, but they don’t want it badly enough to make sacrifices for it."

 

He has point there. :-)

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | Education - online learning | Scoop.it

The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

 

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.
