First Day of Class Activities that Create a Climate for Learning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
There’s no discounting the importance of the first day of class. What happens that day sets the tone for the rest of the course. Outlined below are a few novel activities for using that first day of class to emphasize the importance of learning and the responsibility students share for shaping the classroom environment.

Research seems to suggest that people aren't good judges of how they learn best. I wonder if asking students to say "I learn best when . . . " is a good idea?

'Double Flip' Your Classroom

Daniel Schwartz,Jeryl-Ann Asaro, and William Kist share their thoughts on "flipped learning."


The difficulty is that lectures are still a numbing way to learn, and flipped instruction expects students to watch lectures at home. Instead of seeing a new variable introduced every 45 seconds in an engineering class lecture, they can do it at home. Yay?

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them. In these TED talks, students and educators share their …

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

Hey Higher Ed, Why Not Focus On Teaching?

Hey Higher Ed, Why Not Focus On Teaching? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Stanford physics and education professor Carl Wieman won a Nobel Prize for his innovative, break-through work in quantum mechanics. Wieman has since levered the prestige and power of that prize to call attention to the need to transform undergraduate teaching, especially science education. 


Wieman's message, as we've reported here and here, is bold: Too many undergraduate programs fail to focus on teaching effectiveness or even bother to try to measure it. As he sees it, undergraduate Higher Ed still worships at the old false idol called the Big Lecture and doesn't seem to want to ask whether it's working.
