Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
One potential culprit captured by the study: Faculty may lack the training necessary to take advantage of smaller class sizes, open classroom layouts and other strategies meant to reduce the reliance on conventional lecturing. Lectures did occur less often in smaller than larger classes, the study found, and open layouts did correlate with more student-centered learning. But about half of the courses with those advantages still featured more conventional lecturing than interactive or student-centered teaching styles.

Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design

Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
This paper describes how the new field of Learning Design contributes to the central challenge of improving teaching and learning. Learning Design can assist educators to describe effective teaching ideas so that they can be shared with, and adapted by, other educators. While the field has primarily focussed on higher education and K-12 schools to date, it also has implications for vocational and professional training. This paper describes how ongoing work to develop a descriptive language for teaching and learning activities (often including the use of technology) is changing the way educators think about planning and facilitating educational activities. The ultimate goal of Learning Design is to convey great teaching ideas among educators in order to improve student learning.

Reassessing the Value of University Lectures. By Sarah French and Gregor Kennedy

Reassessing the Value of University Lectures. By Sarah French and Gregor Kennedy | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Over the past few years the question of whether the lecture is an effective teaching method has been one of the most heatedly debated topics in the field of higher education. While research on the effectiveness of lectures has been carried out since at least the 1960s, the value of the lecture has been increasingly questioned recently for a number of reasons that include waning lecture attendance rates by students, the heightened emphases on active learning and interactive modes of teaching, and technological advances that allow for the instructional component of lectures to be delivered online.

In this paper, it is proposed that lectures offer some important pedagogical, practical and social benefits that support their continued presence in the university curricula. However, if lectures are to be retained, it is vital that both staff and students have a stronger understanding of their purpose and value. Thus, in addition to improving the delivery of lectures and better integrating them with other teaching methods, universities face the challenge to more effectively articulate the role of lectures in the curriculum. A stronger statement about the benefits of lectures for both staff and students is needed to ensure they are viewed as having a pedagogical value.

NMC Horizon Report Preview 2018 | EDUCAUSE

NMC Horizon Report Preview 2018 | EDUCAUSE | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Abstract


The NMC Horizon Report Preview provides summaries of each of the upcoming edition's trends, challenges, and important developments in educational technology. This work would not have been possible without the efforts of the 71 community members of the 2018 Horizon Expert Panel. These volunteers share a consensus view that each of the profiled topics will have a significant impact on the practice of higher education around the globe over the next five years.

For more than a decade, EDUCAUSE has partnered with the New Media Consortium (NMC) to publish the annual Horizon Report - Higher Education Edition. Earlier this year, EDUCAUSE acquired the rights to the NMC Horizon project. In the interest of both honoring and working actively with the NMC’s Horizon legacy, EDUCAUSE is publishing this preview and will publish the complete 2018 Horizon Report in the summer.

8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle | Emerging Education Technologies | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The SAMR Model for integrating technology into teaching, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has gained a good deal of exposure in recent years. “SAMR” is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model provides a technique for moving through degrees of technology adoption to find more meaningful uses of technology in teaching and move away from simply using “tech for tech’s sake”.

ABC  is an effective and engaging hands-on workshop that has now been trialled with great success over a range of programmes. In just 90 minutes using a game format teams are able to work together to create a visual ‘storyboard’ outlining the type and sequence of learning activities (both online and offline) required to meet the module’s learning outcomes. ABC is particularly useful for new programmes or those changing to an online or more blended format.
