Batson Blog - AAEEBL - The Association for Authentic, Experiential & Evidence-Based Learning

Mary Starry's insight:

I've looked at the DesireToLearn new learning portfolio, which would tie in with their learning management system.  Right now it doesn't provide the reporting and assessment aspects that provide our college the opportunity to utilize it as a "learning" or "assessment" portfolio.  However, they were very interested in obtaining comments and suggestions, so input on what pharmacy schools want for a portfolio should be brought to their attention now.

 

I definitely believe that learning management systems will contain within them the portfolios of the future.

Adult Learning Overview of Kolbs Learning Cycle by Dr Pandula Siribaddana | Education Space 360

Adult Learning Overview of Kolbs Learning Cycle by Dr Pandula Siribaddana | Education Space 360 | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
When understanding one's learning experience and its progression, it is a good idea to visit the Kolb’s learning cycle for an overall guidance.
Mary Starry's insight:
The Kolb's learning cycle steps match the steps involved when adding an artifact to a learning portfolio. You take a concrete learning experience (artifact), and then reflect on what you learned, how the learning happened, and what future impact the learning will have followed by feedback and on to additional learning. Using Kolb's explanation may help faculty better understand what learning portfolios are.

Looks like they are planning to have additional tools and resources, but that portion of the website is currently empty. They are promoting resources and tools to help improve medication adherence.

Some great insights into both the pros and cons of having students assess and identify their current knowledge state (we all consider ourselves above average) as well as what gaps we need to fill. Definitely applicable to pharmacy students as well as we move to meeting competencies and utilizing learning portfolios.

Portfolio Asessment - learning tools in the portfolio


Via Patty Ball
Mary Starry's insight:

Liked this article's emphasis on students' learning to identify their own learning strategies and then think and reflect on what works best for them as learning strategies. I firmly believe students that perform best are those who understand and utilize the tools that work best for them.  Students who struggle often need to formally undertake this process to become more successful students.

Subtext is a free iPad app that allows classroom groups to exchange ideas in the pages of digital texts. You can also layer in enrichment materials, assignments and quizzes—opening up almost limitless opportunities to engage students and foster analysis and writing skills.


Via Nik Peachey
Mary Starry's insight:

This could be a unique tool for allowing multiple students in a group to interact with a journal article or an assignment.  Can also embed stimulating questions for students to reflect on or just multiple choice questions to identify whether they are understanding what they are reading.  Plan to try this app out!

Sounds like purchasing iPads for all students by medical school programs has resulted in both expected and nonexpected benefits.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.
Mary Starry's insight:

The concept of students having different learning "styles" is still prevalent in the pharmacy school curriculum.  As Gardner points out, instead we need to individualize our teaching, teach important concepts in multiple ways to increase retention, and bury the term "learning style" forever.

Great article that reminds us "flipped classrooms" should not just be putting a lecture into a video for students to passively watch.  We need to develop student interaction with resources and tools as part of the out of class time and then develop active learning in the classroom that incorporates creativity, analysis and evaluation.

The concept of the (Have you "flipped" your classroom?
Mary Starry's insight:

Initial research by these professors' did not show a statistically significant difference in learning outcomes on exams when comparing flipped classrooms to traditional lecture approaches. However, long term retention of information was not a focus for them. Will be interesting to see what they find from longer term research and whether they will focus on knowledge retention.

 

For the pharmacy classroom a key expectation is for the flipped classroom to provide a solid foundation that results in better retention of the information and skills over time.

The Critical Role Of Feedback In The Learning Process - TeachThought

The Critical Role Of Feedback In The Learning Process - TeachThought | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

"“You can’t do that.”

 

It was harsh for me to hear. “No, that’s no good.” There it was again.

Coming from the world of education, I was used to feedback that was kind and almost apologetic–feedback that made me feel good.

 

Sometimes the learning feedback I get isn’t what I’d hoped to hear. There’s a fine line between feedback that simply makes the recipient smile, and effective, kindly-stated feedback. Sometimes, in an attempt to be polite and considerate, we generate comments that are watered down and not helpful.

 

I realized that one major difference between feedback in the tech world and feedback in the ed world is that feedback in tech is much more direct. It seems almost abrupt at first. In education, we’re used to “It would be great if you could,” rather than, “Nope, that’s no good. Do this.” Everyone’s busy; feedback cuts right to the chase. Being able to accept and give feedback are very different skills. They need to be taught in schools."

Rethinking e-Portfolios

Rethinking e-Portfolios | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

The diagramme reveals not only ownership issues, but possibly contradictory purposes for an e-Portfolio. Is an e-Portfolio intended as a space for learners to record all their learning – that which takes place in the home or in the workplace as well as in a course environment or is it a place or responding to prescribed outcomes for a course or learning programme? How much should a e-Portfolio be considered a tool for assessment and how much for reflection on learning?


Via Jesús Salinas, EDTC@UTB
Mary Starry's insight:

A good critique of the difficulty of developing a portfolio that both encourages real learning and reflection on the part of the student - versus just completing a checklist - and still provides the data needed for assessment of learning outcomes. I haven't seen any pharmacy portfolio systems that have successfully combined these two aspects.
