Creating learning objectives, flipped classroom style - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Creating learning objectives, flipped classroom style - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

A common question with flipped classroom approaches is what should I expect the student to know before they show up for class and what objectives are still addressed within the classroom.  This author provides a simple but reasonable approach to identify those through organization of your learning objectives.

A great list of strategies, with a concrete example showing how to utilize each strategy in the classroom.  I found myself familiar with some (chunking material, putting key concepts at beginning and end of lecture) while unfamiliar with others (maximum of 7 important concepts). Regardless, a good review of what psychology has brought to learning pedagogy.

10 Common Misconceptions About The Flipped Classroom

 

What have you heard about the flipped classroom? That it’s just the latest education fad? That it only works for certain academic subjects? It’s not uncommon to come across references in the web media to poorly informed and misconstrued ideas like these. Given the value and many benefits inherent in this powerful form of blended learning, it is important that these misconceptions be addressed and dispelled.

 

Following are 10 of the most common erroneous ideas about flipped teaching and learning that you may come across, and a brief explanation of why each of them is misinformed.


Via Rob Hatfield, M.Ed., Lynnette Van Dyke
Mary Starry's insight:

This article does a nice job addressing some of the misconceptions about flipped classrooms.  Realize that almost every component can be individualized.  I'm a great facilitator, but don't always come across the best on video.  I recently used some great short online videos to make some key points for a Career Pathways class without students having to watch me for 30 minutes!  Now we're ready to workshop when we get to class!

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, February 14, 2014 7:30 PM

When reviewing these misconceptions, think about developing your SWOT of a "Flipped Classroom" from your own learning environment.

 

In Southeast Asia, guided "Flipped Activities" must be tasked-based or project-based learning experiences to become successful.

 

There is a social-cultural aspect within the "Flipped Classroom  Misconceptions" that needs to be addressed and should be added to this list.

The More I Lecture, The Less I Know If They Understand

The More I Lecture, The Less I Know If They Understand | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
"Any pedagogical decision about methods is best made by looking at what goals imply (as opposed to what the teacher merely feels comfortable doing). In other words, if the lecture is a means, then toward what end(s)? And given any proposed rationale based on the logic, we would next consider: how effective is the method when contrasted with other methods?"
Via EDTECH@UTRGV
Mary Starry's insight:
Lecturers are prone to self-deception and ego centrism regarding the value of their lecturing, according to this excellent article. So often I hear faculty go on about how much information they have to share within their lecture without stopping to ask how much of that is retained by students. Lecturing does not promote retention.

The Spectrum of Opinion About MOOCs

It’s been interesting to see the incredibly wide variety of opinions about the hot topic of MOOCs the past two years.  As part of a presentation last week at a faculty development conference, I compiled some articles on MOOCs and arranged them from the most extremely “pro” MOOC articles, to the most negative and critical.

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Reflective Practice and Its Implications for Pharmacy Education

The American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education - Reflective Practice and Its Implications for Pharmacy Education | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Mary Starry's insight:

This recent article provides a historical overview of the development of reflection in pharmacy education, including the impact of major researchers and pedagogy over time. The article then moves on to the tools used by various healthcare programs, including journals, blogs and portfolios, addressing both the positive and the negative aspects of both incorporating reflection and assessing reflection within the curriculum.

 

Reflection and learning portfolios are keywords for many pharmacy college assessment programs, but often incorporated into the curriculum without sufficient background understanding and structure to provide students the four variables identified as key:  self-direction, self-motivation, curiosity to learn more, and recognizing the learning value of past experiences.

Pedagogies of engagement in science: A comparison of PBL, POGIL, and PLTL

Problem-based learning, process-oriented guided inquiry learning, and peer-led team learning are student-centered, active-learning pedagogies commonly used in science education. The characteristic features of each are compared and contrasted to enable new practitioners to decide which approach or combination of approaches will suit their particular situation.
Via Deirdre Bonnycastle, Mary Starry, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD

Great comparison of PBL, POGIL, and PLTL. The table comparing the three approaches is helpful. If you've wondered what these terms mean or which approach would work best for meet your learning objectives, this article will be pertinent.

Tennielle Crossett's curator insight, June 2, 2015 9:45 PM

Problem Based Learning is important in the education field. As a Biology teacher, I need to be able to use ICT in my classroom effectively so that I have the best learning outcomes for my students. What I picked up on this article was teachers need to make sure the learning is student-centred and not teacher-centred. Relating the content to real-life situations is extremely important and the example in this article was a real-life situation. In the past, I have taught reproduction and reproductive technologies and there is only so much I know because I am not a specialised doctor in that field. I could have an example of a couple being infertile and the students are given pathology results in which they have to analyse and interpret what they mean and what treatment would be best for the couple. Outside influences may be a doctor or someone who has had many attempts in ARTs. Students will become curious with the information and engage to the person. With permission, a video recording of the lesson may  be conducted so that students can watch the lesson over again and reference what is being said. Students can then work collaboratively in blogs to analyse the information that they have collected and share new ideas with other students. They can then work in groups to decide what information is going to be used in their presentation of their assessment. Students may make a YouTube video in which they can pretend they work in an IVF clinic or they may produce a website. Each of these are allowing ICT to be used to enhance their learning!

Wikipedia The Top Source Of Health Care Info For Doctors, Patients

Wikipedia The Top Source Of Health Care Info For Doctors, Patients | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Wikipedia is the single leading source of health care information for both providers and patients, with 50 percent of physicians reporting that they’ve consulted the community-edited, online encyclopedia for information on health conditions.A report from IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, a medical technology company that draws on data from more than 100,000 suppliers and 45 billion healthcare transactions each year, finds that Wikipedia is the single leading source of medical information for patients and healthcare professionals. Serious illnesses, especially less common ones, are among the most frequently searched topics by English-language users.Launched in 2001, Wikipedia is the world’s largest general reference work available on the Internet, with more than 30 million articles in 287 languages that can be edited and posted without cost by any person with access to the Internet. However, the online encyclopedia’s more than 71,000 active editors have no credential checks, and there are numerous instances of deliberate vandalism and fabricated posts.Despite the issues with accuracy, the IMS Health report revealed that people trust Wikipedia enough to seek a wide-ranging cache of information about their personal health and medicine.The top 100 English Wikipedia pages for health care topics were accessed an average 1.9 million times over the course of the past year. And analysis of prescription drug sales found a correlation between page views and medicine use.“Increasingly, patients are turning to social media as an essential forum for obtaining and sharing information related to their health,” Murray Aitken, executive director of the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, writes in the report.Tuberculosis, Crohn’s disease, pneumonia and multiple sclerosis were the top health-related Wikipedia articles in 2013, all of them hovering around 4 million page views. Less common conditions were among the pages with the most page views.Wikipedia as a whole is ranked sixth globally and in the United States for heaviest web traffic. The U.S. alone accounts for over 20 percent of Wikipedia’s annual visitors according to the web traffic tracker, Alexa.“This trend only heightens the need for relevant, accurate content that can be accessed and used throughout the patient journey. Health care professionals, regulators and pharmaceutical manufacturers all need to overcome their reticence and acknowledge the vital role that they can and should play as participants in the healthcare conversation.”The IMS Health report revealed that pharmaceutical companies and other health care providers are actively expanding their role in social media channels. Nearly half of the top 50 pharmaceutical manufacturers surveyed are using social media to engage patients on healthcare topics.Younger patients under the age of 39 were more likely to research illnesses and drug treatments on Wikipedia before they started their course of treatment. Older patients above the age of 54 were more likely to search Wikipedia for health care information after they had received professional medical attention.A report this week from Quartz revealed that a University of California, San Francisco Medical School professor has a class for fourth-year medical students dedicated solely to the editing and posting of health care-related Wikipedia pages.

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Faculty Focus

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Faculty Focus | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
I want to explain the use of what I call “frameworks” in my college teaching. I have used them during nine years of teaching graduate and undergraduate classes, and my students tell me that they are particularly helpful. Although I teach in Utica College’s Education program, this tool has application across a broad number of disciplines and courses at a variety of levels. The tool I call a “framework” is a visual structure to capture students’ thinking. It has a non-linear format and provides writing space to record what students are thinking about course content as well as how they are thinking about it. I start students out early in the semester with a framework I provide them: A sheet of paper with three shapes on it: a square, a triangle, and a circle (see sample #1). The shapes have three associated phrases: “Something that ‘squares’ with your beliefs,” “Three ‘points’ to remember,” and “A question ‘circling’ my mind.” The students complete the framework by hand after reading the assigned chapters in their text.
Via Faculty Focus, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Mary Starry's insight:
This approach goes further than the "muddiest point" by having students identify in readings or class work what connected with them, what was memorable, and what left questions. This really results in a student reflection on the material.
