Annie Murphy Paul With 4 Tips On Overcoming Expertise When Teaching | WiredAcademic | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Ken Koedinger, a professor of human-computer interaction and psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, ... experts can articulate only about 30 percent of what they know. This is a problem when designing courses, he noted, because the experts creating them often can't adequately explain what they know to the novice learner.

The impact of student evaluations on teaching behaviour - Ako Aotearoa

The impact of student evaluations on teaching behaviour - Ako Aotearoa | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
This National Project Fund project examined the extent to which teaching practices are informed by learner feedback in New Zealand tertiary institutions.

 

This project investigated tertiary teachers’ views of, and engagement with, feedback gathered through student evaluations. The study drew on a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques; in all, 1,065 staff from 3 institutions (1 polytechnic and 2 universities) participated in a questionnaire and 60 volunteers were interviewed.

This study highlights the need for greater use of student evaluation as an integral part of professional development. Closing the loop is introduced as a principle to encourage individual teachers, departments and organisations to:

provide evidence to demonstrate the quality of teaching to government, to staff, to colleagues, to students and other stakeholders enable planning for ongoing personal, professional, course/programme and institutional development enable students to be involved in development activities and give them a voice in the quality aspects of their tertiary experience.

Two outputs are available from this project: a research report and a summary guide.

Is Online Teacher Training Good for Public Education?

Is Online Teacher Training Good for Public Education? | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Internet courses and degrees are exploding at every level of education, but questions remain over whether it's possible to teach people to be face-to-face classroom instructors in a program that's entirely online.

 

PM - The question is not if "online' education works, but HOW online education is conducted. I can show you face to face class situations every day that are useful and next door, useless. The same goes for online education. It's not the tool you use, it's how you use the tool.

Teaching and the future in universities

Teaching and the future in universities | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Australian universities need to be able to choose where they wish to place themselves on the continuum between teaching and research, between transmitting known knowledge and discovering the unknown, between short-term applied and long-term basic research, between cultivating students’ character and deepening their specific expertise, as well as between building international scholarly reputation and building national identity, between serving the professions as they exist and changing their social shape, between partnering with the community and standing apart as its independent critic.
