Tactile Teachables: Expanding Accessibility with 3D Printing

Tactile Teachables: Expanding Accessibility with 3D Printing | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Key Takeaways 


3D printing has become more affordable, and a variety of free online tools support both novice and experienced users in obtaining 3D printing and modeling skills. 


Among its many practical uses, 3D printing increases the accessibility options for students with visual impairments by making intangible concepts and theories more concrete and perceivable through printed objects. 


Collaboration among university groups can further this work, identifying accessibility needs and troubleshooting how 3D printing and other emerging technologies can help address them.

Five myths about Australian university graduate outcomes

Five myths about Australian university graduate outcomes | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Universities are vital to Australia’s sustained prosperity. However, the complexity of our current higher education policy landscape, combined with profound economic forces, have led to a number of myths and misconceptions about what happens to students after they graduate.

New analysis reveals five myths or misconceptions about Australian university graduate outcomes. The analysis uses data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Labour Force Survey, Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching (QILT), and former Australian Graduate Survey (AGS).

USQ Salon: Dr Jason Lodge: 11 September 2017 - YouTube

Dr Jason Lodge discusses 'What are we discovering about learning in the brain and can it be used to enhance teaching?'. The last decade has seen enormous advances in understanding how learning occurs in the brain and mind. Despite this progress, little of this research has filtered through to higher education practice. In this session, the cutting edge research on the science of learning will be discussed. A particular emphasis will be placed on the development of deep conceptual understanding. The session will conclude with a discussion about possibilities for evidence-based innovation.

Why Blended Learning, Why Now? | Tomorrow's Professor Postings

Why Blended Learning, Why Now? | Tomorrow's Professor Postings | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Over the past several decades, a wide range of technologies has emerged that are designed to assist in teaching and learning. Technology has changed every aspect of our lives, and the higher education classroom also feels that impact (Collins & Halverson, 2009). Distance education programs at institutions of higher education, which are often seen as a means to broaden enrollment and increase gross margins (e.g., see Parry, 2011), are continuing to grow (Allen & Seaman, 2014). Blended (also referred to as hybrid) courses, in which face-to-face interaction is combined with technology-enhanced or online activities to aid student learning, have also been posed as a possible solution to the question of how best to engage busy students in a cost-effective and learner-centered way. Major (2015) points out that, for some, blended is seen to be “the best of both worlds” (p. 82) because of the way it allows for both face-to-face interaction and online support structures. For many instructors across disciplines, a form of blended learning, termed flipped classrooms, has also gained popularity as a method to increase in-class active learning time by shifting delivery of content to the online environment.

Hollywood has done a great job of preserving the classroom in a time capsule, which means whenever we see a lecture hall or schoolroom in a movie it has a distinctly retro tinge - blackboard, chalk, may be a few pencils and the desks lined up facing the lecturer.  Think Netflix hit, Stranger Things, and its perfectly preserved recreation of the 1980s.

Learning — to some it is the sound of chalk on blackboards,  the search through stacks of scribbled notes, and backpacks full of heavy textbooks. For others with a less traditional lens, learning is the summoning of professors with a click of a mouse, assignments no longer living on paper, but in a cloud, and the ‘classroom’ being everywhere. Education has changed considerably in recent years and we don’t expect it to slow down anytime soon.

Perspectives on Authenticity by Snape, P., and Fox-Turnbull, W. (2009).

Perspectives on Authenticity by Snape, P., and Fox-Turnbull, W. (2009). | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
To meet the intentions of the New Zealand Curriculum 2007 teachers must critically reflect on their role and their ideas of what is ‘best practice’ for teaching and learning in the twenty-first century. In this post-modern age the teacher’s role has changed considerably and there is now, more than ever, a need for much greater transparency, accountability and collaborative practice within education. While famous philosophers and theorists of the past including Plato, Rousseau and Dewey have expounded the ideals of authenticity and authentic engagement, it is only in more recent times with the spread of constructivism that authenticity has gained more favour. This paper will investigate several important perspectives of authenticity and authentic learning (Turnbull 2002, Splitter 2008, Newmann & Wehlage 1998, Kreber, Klampfleitner, McCune, Bayne and Kottenbelt 2007). It will help clarify how Technology Education programmes based on authentic education and integrating key competencies can develop enduring learning for students. We will consider the role of context in developing learning and introduce some new ideas on successful student engagement in the field of conation (Riggs & Gholar 2009). They define conation as the will, drive and effort of students’ personal effort and is increasingly being seen as an important part of authentic education.

Universities must be places of intellectual discomfort

Universities must be places of intellectual discomfort | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it


f the Office for Students ever intervenes over freedom of speech, it will only be to widen it, says Michael Barber

...it is too easy to forget just how fundamental freedom of speech is to a flourishing society. Perhaps we have come to take it for granted. When Jo Johnson, the minister for universities and science, raised it recently some suggested that it was a mere “gimmick”. 


 As Anthony Gottlieb points out in his wonderful book The Dream of Enlightenment: The Rise of Modern Philosophy, the philosopher Spinoza turned down a professorship at Heidelberg in 1673 because a condition of the role was that he not “disturb the publicly established religion”. Spinoza argued that intellectual freedom was “absolutely necessary for progress in science and the liberal arts” because those pursuing such activities needed to be able to exercise judgement “free and unhampered”.

How to create an employee-led culture

How to create an employee-led culture | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Most organisations know the culture they want. What they are less clear on is the culture that they have currently got, according to Aaron McEwan, HR advisory leader of CEB, now Gartner.

“According to our research, a lot of organisations have a gap between where they wanted to be and the degree in which they understood the culture that they currently have,” he told HRD.

“This meant that employees were not clear on what was expected of them.

“They didn’t necessarily believe that their culture was right for them and they did not feel empowered, enabled or equipped to actually behave in a way that is consistent with the culture.”

McEwan added that it’s important to help employees manage the inevitable tensions that come up.

Higher education cuts will be felt in the classroom, not the lab

In a recent Productivity Commission report, the bias of universities in favour of research over teaching was exposed.

The proposed higher education reform that would have seen A$380m cut from university funding was rejected by the Senate, but the word is that Education Minister Simon Birmingham has return to the bunker to develop a new strategy. The most likely scenario is that vice-chancellors will need to cut costs, and we know where the axe will fall. Teaching-focused academics will be the hardest hit, and the cuts will be felt in the classroom rather than the research laboratory.

What is a teaching-focused academic?

The term teaching-focused academic has been used to include teaching-only academics, teaching-focused academics and teaching-intensive academics. The number of teaching-focused academics in Australia has increased from 755 in 2005 to 3696 in 2016. The number of teaching-focused academics is also increasing in the UK and Canada.
