Learning Design - The Project

Learning Design - The Project | Higher education teaching | Scoop.it

"Describes the Australian University Teaching Committee (AUTC) project of reviewing and selecting exemplary learning designs.

 

Learning designs refer to a variety of ways of designing student learning experiences, that is, a sequence of types of activities and interactions.Learning designs may be at the level of a subject, or subject components. A learning design can be considered the framework that supports student learning experiences.

 

This project focuses on learning designs implemented with the use of Information and Communication Technologies. Oliver (1999) argues that a learning design comprises the following key elements:

*Tasks that learners are required to do.

*Resources that support learners to conduct the task.

*Support mechanisms that exist from a teacher implementing it."

These three components need to be considered against the intended learning outcomes.

 

The principles that inform this framework according to Boud and Prosser (2001) include:

Engage learners; Acknowledge the learning context; Challenge learners and Provide practice.

 

"In different learning contexts some of these principles may be more prominent than others, however, all four principles are considered important in any higher education context. The principles are holistic in that they incorporate both learning outcomes and learning processes and are based on the premise that learning arises from what students experience from an implementation of a learning design. Designers/educators need to examine their learning designs from the perspective of their impact on learning, that is, placing themselves in the "students’ shoes" and thus examining their learning designs from the student perspective."

European report on the future of learning

European report on the future of learning | Higher education teaching | Scoop.it

To determine how education and training policy can adequately prepare learners for life in the future society, there is a need to envisage what competences will be relevant and how these will be acquired in 2020-2030. The report identifies key factors for change that emerge at the interface of the visions painted by different stakeholder groups and arranges them into a descriptive vision of the future of learning in 2020-2030. In a second step, the report discusses future solutions to pending challenges for European Education and Training systems and outlines policy options

Tweeting for teachers: how can social media support teacher professional development

Time and time again, research shows that teacher quality is by far the most
important factor in driving up standards in schools. Effective ongoing professional
development is key to ensuring that teachers perform to the best of their abilities,
keep abreast of new developments, and adapt their practice to take account of
these.
The UK government, like many others, has taken this message to heart. Underlining
its commitment to improving teacher quality in its 2010 white paper, The
Importance of Teaching, it has introduced a range of measures in this area, including
changes to Initial Teacher Training and the introduction of new Teaching Schools.
The government also recognises the importance of encouraging and enabling
teachers to learn from each other, stating that ‘we know that teachers learn best
from other professionals and that an ‘open classroom’ culture is vital: observing
teaching and being observed, having the opportunity to plan, prepare, reflect and
teach with other teachers.’
