Active Learning Online

One thing we value the most in Higher Education is the opportunity for students to interact and to benefit from peer and reciprocal teaching. This social constructivist model is at the heart of student-centred education. So how do we achieve these active approaches now that we are physically distanced? The LDCU are offering two workshops addressing this problem:

Monday 21st September (12-1pm): Active Learning in Asynchronous environments - this workshop discusses approaches that can be taken using tools such as Moodle, Padlet and other online spaces, where students access the learning materials at different times. We'll explore how task design can facilitate effective active approaches and enable students to learn flexibly, at a time to suit them, but benefit from being in a group.

Tuesday 22nd September (2-3pm): Active Learning in Synchronous environments - this second workshop looks at ways in which live sessions can facilitate active learning. Principally focused on Teams, but using additional learning apps, we will model and explore activities which support whole and smaller group interaction and engagement.

Both sessions are run by Jess Humphreys and Sara Hattersley of the Academic Development Centre, who will share their experiences of delivering their own programmes online this year.

Monitoring Student Activity and Progress & Collecting Student Feedback in Moodle

25th September, 11-12pm

As we move to blended delivery, what tools and methods are available to monitor student progress? How will you know how well students are progressing online? Do you know who might be falling behind? Do you know which activities and resources are proving more popular or effective than others? Do you know what your students think and what their preferences are? This one-hour online workshop will guide you through some of the key reporting features in Moodle that can provide whole-class and individual student activity and progress reports. It will highlight conditional access settings to manage the learning path for students and point out how to restrict access to resources based on activity completion, grade, date and more. It will also briefly introduce you to the Moodle survey tools that can be used to collect regular feedback.

This session will be delivered as 80% presentation and demonstration and 20% hands-on workshop with an opportunity to complete some simple tasks and activities. An existing basic knowledge and experience of Moodle will be useful.

Creating Learning Communities in Online Spaces
Wednesday 7th October, 2-3pm
What is the difference between a collection of individuals and a community? What are the benefits of creating a community within a module cohort? How do communities work in online spaces? How do we go about creating a community from scratch?
 
These are the guiding questions for this workshop and accompanying resources. Before the session, there are videos to watch introducing key concepts. In the session, participants will work together to design learning activities that promote the development of communities in online learning. There is a reading list and bank of resources to use after the session.

ABC Learning Design using Padlet

15th October, 2-3pm

This session will be an opportunity to explore the challenge of re-imagining lectures and small group sessions together using the ABC activity types. We will be sharing ideas about the different approaches and technologies we can use and also introduce you to the ABC design model based on Diana Laurillard's Conversational Framework.
This session runs alongside a new asynchronous course developed at Warwick - ABC Learning Design
 
Watch the short introduction video (in book 1) and get set up to use Padlet (book 3). This session will then demonstrate how Padlet can be used in this learning design process.

'Monitoring Student Progress and Personalising the Learning Path’

Wednesday 16th December 11-12pm

What tools and methods are available to monitor student progress? How do we know how well students are progressing online? Do you know who might be falling behind or not engaging? Do you know which activities and resources are the most visited or the least used? How can we manage and personalise the learning path?

This one-hour online workshop will guide you through some of the key reporting features in Moodle that can provide whole-class and individual student activity and progress reports. It will also highlight conditional access settings to manage the learning path for students and point out how to control access to resources based on activity completion and grade.

Please note this is similar to the “Monitoring Student Activity and Progress” workshop session that was delivered on the 25th September. It has been adapted and further improved based on participant feedback from the first session.

Inclusive Practice and Accessibility: Experiences and examples of practice
Thursday 4th February 13:00-14:30

In this session, we will briefly explore inclusive practice and accessibility; what the terms mean and how they impact your work. We will be joined by several students who will share their experiences of accessible learning following the move to online and blended teaching. We will also see examples of practice from two members of staff. Nivaria Morales Salas, IT Developer in Economics, will share an accessible by design approach to redeveloping the CAGE Research Centre website. Dr Martyn Parker, Associate Professor in Statistics, will share examples of tools that have helped to overcome the challenge of creating accessible mathematical content. This session will be an opportunity to explore and discuss the challenges and opportunities that creating inclusive and accessible learning presents.
