Preprint: Computer Science Courses Using Laptops

Scott Turner's insight:

Traditionally computer sciences courses have been taught using laboratories full of expensive desktop computers. Although this approach may have been valid in the 80, 90s and even the early part of this decade, this paper suggests that buying, maintaining and replacing laboratories full of computers is no longer required. This paper raises the issues associated with attempting to use laptops – as thin/thick clients using virtual machines – to deliver the computer science curriculum and offers potential solutions that, in some cases, may make computer science courses at such ‘brave’ institutions more appealing.

Immersive technology devices and field work: Oculus Rift

Immersive technology devices and field work: Oculus Rift | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it

The aim was to investigate the potential use and the student experiences of using virtual reality (Oculus Rift) devices for field trips. Virtual reality field trips have been used by a number of HE institutions for a number of reasons:

  • To give students the opportunity to prepare for a ‘real-life’ field trip (risk assessments, kit selection, project preparation etc)
  • To allow students to reflect on a recent field trip
  • To provide an additional field trip experience without incurring extra costs for the student or institution
  • To improve accessibility to field work experiences
  • To allow distance learning students to participate in field work

3 Ways to Get Faculty Up to Speed With Technology

3 Ways to Get Faculty Up to Speed With Technology | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it
Centers for teaching and learning share how they help faculty retool for technology-enabled teaching.

 

When it comes to teaching with technology, or even teaching in general, most faculty could use a little support. To provide the resources, ideas and inspiration faculty need to become better instructors, higher education institutions typically create some form of Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), devoted to fostering teaching excellence across the board.
