Harvard Business School’s teaching model offers consistency but also allows unscripted ‘discovery’

Via Ian Giles
Dr Seroya Crouch's insight:

Endeavour College of Natural Health uses a similar teaching model and teachers are encouraged to "flesh out" the material using their own cases and professional experience. We offer standardised accredited courses on six campuses across Australia and this method has worked well for us.

Ian Giles's curator insight, September 10, 2013 2:53 PM

SO the question is: How much autonomy do academics need in developing their material and does this vary between subjects and academic levels?

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | Scholarship of Teaching | Scoop.it
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

Good ideas for better assessment of online courses!

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 24, 2014 4:43 PM

Assessment should reflect purpose. We require summative assessment in our society and yet we know learners thrive, grow and develop on a diet of formative assessment. The balance is the key! Feedback and the use of authentic assessment tasks are critical positive factors.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 24, 2014 5:46 PM

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, February 25, 2014 9:19 AM

Wonderful article that challenges us to think through the online assessments and their prep!

Free e-book - Applying Science of Learning in Education

Free e-book - Applying Science of Learning in Education | Scholarship of Teaching | Scoop.it

This edited book represents a sliver, albeit a substantial one, of the scholarship on the science of learning and its application in educational settings. Most of the work described in this book is based on theory and research in cognitive psychology. Although much, but not all, of what is presented is focused on learning in college and university settings, teachers of all academic levels may find the recommendations made by chapter authors of service. Authors wrote their chapters with nonexperts as the target audience – teachers who may have little or no background in science of learning, research-based approaches to teaching and learning, or even general principles of psychological science. The book is organized in three sections. The 14 chapters in Part 1 address important concepts, principles, theories, and research findings, and applications related to the science of learning. The four chapters in Part 2 focus on preparing faculty to apply science of learning principles in their courses. Finally, the six chapters in Part 3 provide examples of research that have been done in real academic settings and that have applied one or more science of learning principles.

Dr Seroya Crouch's insight:

The future will be defined by people's ability to learn and technologies and  practices and that enhance learning and "intelligence" across a variety of dimensions will be in high demand. We ignore this at our peril.

A FREE e-book on the science of brain-based learning. Based on cognitive theory, the material is focused on learning in a college setting. It is accessible and provides lots of useful resources.
