Online Learning has changed the Future of Higher Education

Online Learning has changed the Future of Higher Education | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

People have been questioning the necessity of a college degree for years. Many high school students continue to debate their parents on the issue, as the perception of higher education has shifted in the age of the Internet. What was once a vital stepping stone toward getting a sustainable career is now viewed as a little more than a piece of paper. When you factor in the rising costs of tuition, books, and campus housing, it’s no wonder that many young people prefer to carve out their own educational path.

Using VR to design better classrooms

Using VR to design better classrooms | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

Virtual Reality (VR) can be used to improve the design of classrooms and learning spaces, allowing students to learn without distractions, a new study has revealed.

A team of researchers from Bond University used VR headsets to test the acoustics of virtual classrooms to determine students’ cognitive performance in three settings – no ambient noise, typical classroom ambient noise, and ambient noise with acoustic treatments.

Edumorfosis's curator insight, April 15, 9:48 AM

Virtual Reality was not created to improve classrooms. It was invented to improve user experiences. At educational level, to design hyper-connected learning experiences.

[PDF] Rethinking Higher Education

[PDF] Rethinking Higher Education | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

The pandemic has caused many problems, as well as amplifying existing issues that England’s higher education system already faced. The numbers of young people entering HE has been increasing, and following the turbulence of 2020, there was a further increase in offers and acceptances. This additionally emphasizes the importance of high-quality provision so that this cohort do not miss out on the rich student experience their predecessors gained.

At the same time, many students do not believe they are getting value for money from the HE experience; young people are not getting adequate access to up to date and impartial information of wider post-18 opportunities, and incidences of mental health problems are rising to worrying levels. Furthermore, there is a disconnect between what employers say they want from graduates and the skills and capabilities graduates are developing. Beyond this, the modern workplace is rapidly changing and students will need the adaptability, confidence and creativity to be successful in the 21st Century world of work.

As higher education learns to adapt to a world with COVID and beyond, opportunities arise to rethink its curriculum, delivery, and priorities. This report draws on five HE case studies which offer examples of non-traditional HE provision. Some of the key characteristics include a clear link between theory and practice, external stakeholders meaningfully engaging with teaching staff and students at various levels, emphasis on the development of student employability and where the ‘university campus’ is understood in the broadest sense. All these offer varied and engaging student experiences.

The five case studies are:
1. Cardiff University’s National Software Academy
2. Dyson Institute of Engineering
3. Minerva Schools at KGI
4. Eden Project Learning
5. The University of Salford

This report draws out some of the key features we can learn from the case studies.

Issues like a lack of focus and heightened anxiety when learning at home could be due to students lacking the autobiographical memory they need to learn in an alternative context.

Enhance Student Engagement with Virtual Social Learning Spaces – Dr. Catlin Tucker

Enhance Student Engagement with Virtual Social Learning Spaces – Dr. Catlin Tucker | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
When I ask teachers, “How would you describe a successful online or blended learning course? What would that look like?” Most teachers include some form of the word “engagement” in their answers. So, it makes sense that teachers are frustrated when they feel like students are not engaging. The pandemic is presenting new barriers to student engagement, most obviously the lack of physical proximity. Despite the challenges associated with this moment in education, technology is rapidly evolving to allow students more opportunities to engage in social learning spaces online.

Virtual social learning spaces create opportunities for the social and academic aspects of learning to collide. Social learning spaces “provide a place for students to interact with their peers…and take command over their own learning” (Matthews, Andrews & Adams, 2011). These spaces provide an avenue for students to learn from and with each other.

In this post, I’ll review a collection of the technology tools teachers can use to engage groups of learners online. I’ll also share ideas and strategies for utilizing those shared spaces to create student-centered learning experiences.

You don't need 'clickers' per se. Many software packages have audience participation options like voting, inbuilt quiz tools or even raising your hand to allow students to 'voice' their views. A great way to interact with the class.
