Simple, but effective way to begin gamification. Always make sure to build around sound instructional design. Start with the learning outcomes and ensure that your gamified experience translates to completing those outcomes!

The Open Educational Resources (OER) movement has grown substantially since the term was first adopted at UNESCO’s 2002
Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries (UNESCO, 2002). Since then, there has been a significant increase in the development, use and sharing of OER as more and more governments and institutions come to realise their value.

Using Film (and Video!) in the Classroom

 

Everybody loves movies. Teachers across all of the disciplines integrate moving images into their classrooms, whether that means full-length theatrical screenings, television episodes, or videos from YouTube. Incorporating movies is a great way to attract student interest, appeal to different learning styles, and diversify classroom activities. Films can also raise their own questions, deepening content-area discussion.

How to Manage the 4 Types of Teachers You Meet in Professional Development (EdSurge News)

How to Manage the 4 Types of Teachers You Meet in Professional Development (EdSurge News) | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
In my heart, I will always be a middle school English Language Arts teacher. As I continue this path as a district administrator, I want to hold close to my heart the plight of the teacher: what it’s like to have to work all day with children and then go home and work on lessons, assessments, grading, etc. What it’s like to sit for hours in professional development sessions and be bored because you already know it or frustrated because it’s way over your head or not relevant to your grade level or content area.

So in my role, I find that it is imperative to provide Professional Learning (PL) opportunities that are relevant, on-going, and effective. In the article, I’m going to highlight the types of educators that we may encounter and ways to provide PL that is beneficial for all.

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
An idea that is beginning to gain a lot of favour in educational circles at the moment is the notion of fixed versus growth mindsets, and how they might relate to students and learning. Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

However, in my work, I have found that the notion of developing a growth mindset is as equally applicable to staff and teacher performance as it is to students. This article begins with a brief discussion about the difference between the two mindsets, what that means for education, and concludes with some ideas for how school leaders might seek to develop a growth mindset amongst their staff.

Valuable! Growth mindset should be a requirement of any teaching position.

2016: Rethinking Continuous Professional Development (CPD) | LEARNing To LEARN

2016: Rethinking Continuous Professional Development (CPD) | LEARNing To LEARN | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
Continuous Professional Development happens best through a daily dripfeed of information (from blog and web feeds) and interactions with other people active in your field (in social networks) – which over time builds up into a large body of knowledge and expertise – almost unconsciously. This is particularly useful way of keeping abreast of the NEW and the NEXT in your field of work – bearing in mind that in the fast moving world the horizon is rapidly approaching.

 

So why is continuous CPD of this type important?

It helps you to recognize the fact that learning comes not just from intermittent bouts of education but throughcontinuous interactions with people and access to content (both inside and outside the workplace).It allows you to be exposed to new thinking so that you not only keep your organisation up to date with new ideas, but also keep yourself up to date in terms of your own career. After all, there’s no such thing as a job for life!It helps you to recognize that learning comes not just from something that is organized for you, but something you organise yourself – as well as from daily experiences.It helps you to value this way of learning for yourself, and consequently to help build a continuous learning mindset – rather than an intermittent training mindset – in your organisation.

5 Ways to Support Faculty who Teach with Emerging Technologies

5 Ways to Support Faculty who Teach with Emerging Technologies | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it

 

As online and blended learning reshapes the landscape of teaching and learning in higher education, the need to encourage and support faculty to move from delivering passive, teacher-centered experiences to designing active, student-centered learning increases.  Our new social era is rich with simple, free to low-cost emerging technologies that are increasing experimentation and discovery in the scholarship of teaching and learning. While the literature about Web 2.0 tools are impacting teaching and learning is increasing, there is a lack of knowledge about how the adoption of these technologies is impacting the support needs of higher education faculty. This knowledge is essential to develop new, sustainable faculty support solutions.
