Peter Bryant's curator insight, March 20, 3:29 AM

In the increasingly frantic, impossible environment of higher education pedagogy, social media (which conceptually includes the notions of production, critiquing and consumption of 'openly' accessible media) is often seen as both the hero and the villain, offering a mechanism that may help realise the potential of e-learning but alternately might entwine the academy in a web of perceived (or real) risks and dangers (Hughes, 2009; Ralph & Ralph, 2013; Towner & Muñoz, 2011). This short paper will look at potential reasons behind this apparent disconnect, through the lens of data collected through the consultation and implementation phases of Greenwich Connect, a university wide vision for Learning Innovation at the University of Greenwich. We argue that critical to the success of any learning innovation is the ability of the staff and students to play and experiment, and that there are significant barriers to encouraging and supporting this ‘safe space’ in an open world, which is fundamental for staff finding their institution strategically and operationally credible (Whitchurch, 2008).

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

We've been talking a lot lately about "authentic" assessment.


Here are the three statements discussed in this post. 

1. The Assessment Is Appropriate

2. The Assignment Is Purposeful

3. The Assessment Promotes Understanding

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 8, 2:53 PM

Rigourous curriculum and assessment is important. These three points are ones that we are continuously focus on. A good read,

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 5:35 PM

This is a great resource that really describes clearly and concisely what makes a great assessment but it took it one step further by talking about rigor. The first point is that good assessments need to be appropriate. This talks about how the assessment needs to be about what students learned but more importantly it needs to talk about and address what the students learned in a challenging way. If the assessment is too easy then students will not be truly assessed on the material and thus the assessment will be weak. The second point is that assessment needs to be purposeful. It is good for your students to finish an assessment and for them to clearly see what they have produced from that assessment. The third point is that the assessment should allow students to come away with some deeper form of understanding on the topic. I think something that I have taken away from this article is that assessment can be a great tool for deepening students understanding and really giving them something to be able to look back and know that they have accomplished something.

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

Education Revolution? Don’t Believe the Hype or the Counter-Hype | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

But the high cost of higher education hasn’t gone away, it is still far from clear that MOOCs are much, if any, worse than big lecture classes routinely taught at universities, and MOOCs can still offer advantages, including scheduling flexibility, self-paced learning, and instant feedback, that brick and mortar colleges are not in a good position to offer. Udacity has rivals, including EdX and Coursera, who have no intention of abandoning the field. I do not think that MOOCs are as transformative as Thrun once did, but there is no good reason to dismiss them either.

Abstract



High-quality online courses can result from collaborative instructional design and development approaches that draw upon the diverse and relevant expertise of faculty design teams. In this reflective analysis of design and pedagogical practice, the authors explore a collaborative instructional design partnership among education faculty, including the course instructors, which developed while co-designing an online graduate-level course at a Canadian University. A reflective analysis of the collaborative design process is presented using an adapted, four-fold curriculum design framework. Course instructors discuss their approaches to backward instructional design and describe the digital tools used to support collaboration. Benefits from collaborative course design, including ongoing professional dialogue and peer support, academic development of faculty, and improved course design and delivery, are described. Challenges included increased time investment for instructors and a perception of increased workload during design and implementation of the course. Overall, the collaborative design team determined that the course co-design experience resulted in an enhanced course design with meaningful assessment rubrics, and offered a valuable professional learning and online teaching experience for the design team.

Worth keeping this mind.

Rasma's curator insight, June 5, 2:06 AM

These three are equally used by professionals on a daily basis? Need to check those sources. This "quick" chart is indeed quick - but is it so comprehensible?

 

Pritchard's "Effective Online Learning" (2007) is a good source for clearly explaining learning theory and relating it to online instruction.

 

My research this year has shown nill online-only course design that achieves anything close to constructivism. The hybrid courses with part face-to-face and part online are the best models for motivating students.

 

However, no study showed learning was improved, in fact the opposite: learning was the same for the hybrid and face-to-face groups... yet the student self-assessment for the hybrid group was higher. In other words, the students who had some online component in their course had a higher perception of their abilities than did the classroom only students. But the actual abilities were the same for both groups.

 

Constructivism - needed for any subject in which independent critical thinking is the goal - is the hardest to achieve online. Only simulated classrooms where dialog and discovery, made through ongoing attempts and feedback is possible, come close to it.

 

In other words, beware MOOCS as a course design to be emulated.

Empower Students to Take Ownership of Learning
