Flipped Learning Workshop

Flipped Learning helps utilise contact time more effectively, by providing pre-class activities and allowing for more meaningful activities in class. Join Nicki Newman (Management School) and the TEL team for a practical workshop of techniques for before, during after the flip. What tools are out there to help produce pre-session material? How can freed class time be used effectively? And how can we ensure our students get the most out of our efforts?

This session is aimed at colleagues who want to understand in more depth how to make flipped learning work in their context, and get advice and inspiration of how to take first steps towards successfully flipping the classroom.

Digital Possibilities: Using Experiential Techniques to Explore Blended Learning

This session will introduce Digital Possibilities, a series of activities aimed at providing professional development around technology-enhanced learning for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs). Taking place over two weeks, participants engage in different activities designed to explore various tools that could help to support their teaching. This is then followed by a face-to-face session where participants reflect on their experiences as learners and consider how they might apply some of these techniques in their own teaching. We will focus on the value of the experiential learning model we have used to develop this course. Many participants have not experienced technology-enhanced approaches as learners, so naturally feel nervous about implementing them as teachers. We will discuss not only how the course has helped to mitigate any fears about using technology in teaching, but more importantly how our approach has enabled participants to critically evaluate technological tools to enhance learning in the context of their discipline and the needs of their students. We will also draw on how this experiential learning has acted as a springboard for broader conversations around student engagement and motivation, how far learning should be structured, and how technology should be incorporated into curriculum design from the outset.

As the presenters are unable to attend TELFest, we will draw on techniques introduced in Digital Possibilities to present via a recorded video. For the second part of the session, we will include some discussion questions to encourage delegates to share their own practice, and Nigel Russell will chair this.

PebblePad, Just a Stone's Throw from MOLE? Reflections on Moving from VLE to PLE

This bitesize case study explores how PebblePad was utilised to transform an existing Law module into a reflective e-portfolio, and personalised revision tool.

The module in EU Law uses a structured electronic workbook to guide the students through core concepts in the first few weeks of the course. It takes them through required reading, helps them identify the most important relevant issues and provides a logical structure to their essay answers as they write their own answers and reflections. This builds into the student’s own personalised revision tool.

This workbook has been delivered for more than 5 years using various tools in MOLE including multiple choice questions, short answers , journals and learning modules. Despite continued development it has never worked entirely satisfactorily. We felt it was shaped more by the tools available to us.In 2015 we took a decision to move the workbook entirely into PebblePad as a personal e-portfolio.

We discuss benefits and disadvantages of PebblePad when compared to MOLE. How we ran the portfolio as a compulsory pass / fail assessment and how that fed into a peer review mark based on students participation in seminars. Finally we share feedback and comments from the student cohort.

Using Learning Analytics to Provide Personalised Feedback to Online Learners

Wouldn't it be great if all your online learners could have regular formative feedback, personalized to them and based on their contributions to the course, which gave them information on their emotional and cognitive engagement with the learning community, and which didn't need large amounts of academics' time to produce and disseminate? This bitesize case study presents preliminary data from a pilot project in ScHARR and an external training institute where linguistic analysis software has been used to provide online learners with weekly feedback on their engagement through discussion forum postings.

Repurposing Digital Learning Materials

In this panel and discussion, the two production managers for the MOOCs team demonstrate how material created originally as online learning content has been repurposed and re-entered the University as material for classroom and flipped classroom teaching, distance learning, module components, marketing and research dissemination.

The session will provide attendees with an insight into the extended shelf life of digital learning materials and the host of repurposing options. It will also help you to understand how the approach of the digital learning team ensures course material is carefully planned in advance to ensure it has maximum reach beyond the initial online course.

Learning technologist Ian Loasby will join the panel to talk about transferring content from the popular Crime, Justice and Society course into MOLE and how that has contributed to modules for the School of Law. Rachel O'Hara (TBC) from ScHARR will discuss how an entire week from the Measuring and Valuing Health MOOC was repurposed into core learning for all year 2 medical students and Graham McElearney from CICs will look at how existing media content can be repurposed across the University's outward facing video channels, to engage with the public and to demonstrate or excellence in learning, teaching and research.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to physical devices that are connected to the Internet and often have sensors built in. Data from sensors in some of these devices is transmitted to others where it is processed and acted upon without direct human intervention. For example, motion sensors in a room could detect the level, type and location of activity within a room and adjust lighting and heating accordingly.

In this bite size session you will have a better understand of the Internet of Things (IoT), have the opportunity to interact with different devices and explore how different technologies that are already available can and are being used in education.
