6 Secrets of Active Learning Classroom Design -- Campus Technology

6 Secrets of Active Learning Classroom Design -- Campus Technology | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Like a jazz dance performance, active learning combines doing, movement and impromptu variety in a way that gets students and faculty up and out of their usual positions in the classroom. The room and its technology trappings become the stage and props for encouraging the unexpected to unfold.

The goal of active learning is to create a space that can become the catalyst for change, noted Lennie Scott-Webber, director of education environments for Steelcase and former head of the Department of Interior Design & Fashion at Radford University (VA). "When you open the door to a space, does it give you permission to act differently other than to be behaviorally conditioned to 'sit and git' or 'stand and deliver'? If the space doesn't give permission to change, then it's too easy to revert back to what we know."

9 Great Leadership Habits That Anyone Can Master

9 Great Leadership Habits That Anyone Can Master | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it

One of the big questions in business is this: Are great leaders born that way, or do they practice a set of habits that anyone can learn and practice? The current thinking is that leadership is a set of habits that can be learned by anyone. The more consistent you are in living and applying these habits, the better leader you will become.

There are plenty of possible habits you can adopt to become a great leader, but here are 9 that will get you far along your own personal leadership journey.

Anyone can be a great leader, simply by mastering the habits of great leaders. So why not take your leadership from good to great?

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, June 25, 10:13 PM

A few tips, nine in fact, that will help leaders improve on their leadership skills. While many would accept that some the habits are already practised by them, they would however agree to the fact that they need to build upon others. Leadership might be either innate or developed. In most cases where leadership is thrust upon those who are not born leaders, working on the nine habits listed in the article will help them a great deal!

It's not PowerPoint's fault, you're just using it wrong

It's not PowerPoint's fault, you're just using it wrong | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
There are very good reasons why the presentations delivered by the late Steve Jobs became so revered. Aside from his personal charisma and gravitas, Jobs and his team were masters of the use of visual aids for emphasis. Slides were used sparingly, had little to no extraneous detail, and were easy for the audience to process.

Slides are visual aids and should be designed with this purpose in mind. Notes, study aids and other supplementary material should be produced separately, using tools that have been designed for those purposes.

Don’t ban the hammer - simply use it for what it was meant for.

Abstract

This paper reports on a quantitative study that investigated the impact of ethnicity and gender on perceptions of online learning. Specifically, the study examined African-American students' perceptions of online learning as compared to those of their White-American counterparts. Participants completed a survey that investigated nine different elements of the online learning environment: Computer Usage, Teacher Support, Student Interaction and Collaboration, Personal Relevance, Authentic Learning, Student Autonomy, Equity, Enjoyment, and Asynchronicity. African-American and White students had overall positive views of online learning, but African-Americans reported significantly less positive views regarding the feature of asynchronicity. Females had more positive perceptions than males on Teacher Support, Student Interaction and Collaboration, Personal Relevance, Authentic Learning, and Student Autonomy. The findings of this study indicate that gender and ethnicity independently influence students' perceptions of online learning.

Keywords: African-American students, gender, higher education, collaborative learning, prior online experience, student perceptions, Online Learning Environment Survey (OLES)

Dealing with Different Types of Learners in E-learning

Dealing with Different Types of Learners in E-learning | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
One of the biggest challenges instructional designers face while developing eLearning courses is maintaining the motivation levels of learners. Everybody loves to learn. But, as an eLearning professional, you need to understand that various types of learners take the courses we develop. Surely, we can’t use the same strategy for all types of learners. Understanding learners will help you to design a course that is more learner-centric.

Five Common Pitfalls of Online Course Design - Faculty Focus

Five Common Pitfalls of Online Course Design - Faculty Focus | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Much of what passes for an “online course” these days could more accurately be described as the electronic version of class hand-outs. These courses usually consist of a course description, a syllabus, lecture notes, reading lists, and assignment checklists. In other words, whatever materials a student might have viewed on paper in the past are now read onscreen, and whatever presentations a student might have watched in the classroom are now observed on their screen.

Education Through Students' Eyes: A Dry-Erase Animated Video - Getting Smart

Education Through Students' Eyes: A Dry-Erase Animated Video - Getting Smart | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Let’s face it. All teachers talk, but not all teachers listen. I know, I know. You are probably thinking, “Well, students talk all the time, but they don’t all listen.” Granted, you may have a point there. But perhaps the root of the problem, a lack of honest and transparent conversations between teachers and students, can be discovered when Holmes’ famous quotation is crossed with The RSA’s animated video covering Daniel Pink’s Drive.

What results is a dry-erase animated video that took two sophomore students from Studio 113 and East Hall High School six hours to plan, draw, and fully articulate their concerns about the following educational concerns:

Teachers’ view versus students’ view of school schedules.
School systems’ expectations of students versus students’ own expectations of themselves.
Purpose, application, and importance of certain curricula.
The practice of not asking the most important people of all…the students.
Ignoring successful educational models, such as Finland.

Care to listen? The wise teachers already know it is the “privilege of wisdom” to click “play.”

If we talk about "life skills," we have to make sure our teaching reinforces actual "life skills." We talk about what students need to know. . .to do well on tests. But we have to help students understand that some of what they need to know won't look the same in life after high school and it's quite probable that some of the stuff they learn won't be relevant or useful, at least not in ways we can think of just now. Or, if we're really honest, ever. Of course, then they'll want to know why they have to learn it, a question students have been asking for a very, very long time.

Open Source Teaching... Because We Are All Learners @venspired

Open Source Teaching... Because We Are All Learners @venspired | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
I’m obsessed with the Maker Movement. It is the exact kind of learning I wanted as a kid. I believe it holds promise for truly changing education. It’s not that I’m inspired by all the stuff, it’s so much more. The people. I’m inspired by the open sharing that I see at MakerFaires. I love the sharing of open source software and the way people send their work out to the world so that others can put their own spin on it, make it better, and improve it. I love how people are giving their ideas to each other for the sole purpose of collaborating and improving the world.

LOVE the idea of getting people out of their seats - you could also add a Sucks - Rocks - Not Sure section.

Gather a list of recent Ed Tech trends - post signs around the room & ask people to choose - Flipping the Classroom  - does it Suck? Rock? or Not Sure? Move to vote & let people shout out WHY. Small debate. If you think the term Suck will overtly offend, use Stinks. [grins] You can steal these huge posters (View full size - take to Kinkos)
