Why Professors Should Give a Damn

Why Professors Should Give a Damn | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it

On social media, I’ve seen an uptick in professors’ complaints about their students. Recently, I read a thread on a social-media site that minimized a student’s struggles because she had asked for an extension on a deadline. Faculty members castigated her and welcomed her to “the real world.” One suggested how to avoid dealing with her. Are we serious? If we don’t understand students’ real-world dilemmas, what are we doing teaching?

Empower Students to Take Ownership of Learning

Empower Students to Take Ownership of Learning | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Empowering students is not the same as abdicating control of your classroom. The ASCD’s journal Educational Leadership defines student empowerment as “student ownership of learning.” That is a good way to look at it – helping students take control of their own education. But how do you do that?

There is great value in understanding the impact and design of group work or collaborative work strategies, from the student's point of view. I appreciate the effort made to get to the view of the student and at the same time I wonder if the research indicate any radical difference between the teacher's view and the student's view related to online collaboration.

Using Self-Determination Theory to Improve Online Learner Motivation

Using Self-Determination Theory to Improve Online Learner Motivation | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it
According to self-determination theory, a theory developed by Deci and Ryan, three basic psychological needs affect motivation: autonomy, competence, and relatedness. Susan Epps, associate professor of Allied Health Sciences, and Alison Barton, associate professor of Teaching and Learning, both at East Tennessee State University, have used this theory to develop ways to improve online learner motivation.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 17, 8:07 AM

"Creating a sense of autonomy helps students make choices that emphasize what they value, which can increase the subjective value of the learning—the sense that the learning is relevant to one’s life, Barton says.



Here are some ways to offer students choices:

  • Content—Barton has her students, who are preservice teachers, facilitate online discussions about lesson plans that each student develops. Each student gets to decide what the lesson will be, which content from the module to include, and which theories to demonstrate. “That, I hope, makes it more of a motivating experience for them because they’re writing a lesson about something they want to write about,” Barton says.
  • Format—In some instances Epps gives her students choices on assignment format such as a paper or a narrated PowerPoint presentation. “When they feel they’re choosing something that is relevant to them, they actually do better work,” Epps says.
  • Grade weighting—In the past, Barton has offered students options on how much various assignments, quizzes, and tests will count toward the final grade. “If they’re not great test takers, you may offer them an option where their assignments or final projects are given more weight,” she says."

Peerwise - Student Generated Assessment Questions - Ako Aotearoa | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Using Peerwise, students develop course-based multiple-choice questions and accompanying explanations to share with other learners. These questions are used by others for studying, critiquing and discussing. Each question is rated for difficulty and quality. The process of answering, evaluating and discussing questions developed by their peers enables students to compare their performance and understanding with that of other students studying the same material.

Understanding the Learning Personalities of Successful Online Students (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Many factors contribute to the rapid growth in higher education's online course offerings, from economic realities to the need for alternative ways to teach a new media-savvy generation. As online classes reduce and often eliminate face-to-face (F2F) interactions, it's important for instructors to learn new ways of understanding and interacting with their online students to further enhance their success.

Studies show students' cognitive styles play a key role in their success in online courses.1 As one researcher noted, "Satisfying online learners' cognitive styles was a critical success factor for online instruction"2 and suggested further research studies to identify instructional strategies addressing online learners' cognitive styles to improve learning outcomes were also provided."

Engagement: not motivation, nor conformity - The Centre

Engagement: not motivation, nor conformity - The Centre | Online Student Engagement in Higher Education | Scoop.it

To achieve deeper engagement, different approaches are required. Engagement is often ambiguous, tough to define and therefore problematic to measure/quantify.

 

Engagement is not a synonym for motivation or conformity. It also involves self-discovery, collaborative intent, it is attuned to emotional investment and personalised to embrace passion and interest – a lot of things PISA find difficult to measure. It is also rigorous, but not excessive to the detriment of wellbeing. Engagement in learning connects to real-world contexts, bringing relevance and horizontal connection to learning in other areas.
