Transcript

  1. Dr. Ian Glover, Anna Campbell, Farzana Latif, Leona Norris, James Toner, Connie Tse City University London
  2.  Switching from WebCT (CitySpace) to Moodle ◦ 2 year absolute deadline ◦ Each school allowed different strategy  Different levels of Ed. Tech. & VLE use between schools ◦ Ranging from ‘No Usage’ to ‘Fully Embedded’ ◦ Corresponding variations in Ed.Tech. support in each school
  3.  CitySpace switched off – September 2011  Collaborative groups focused on implementation and migration ◦ All schools needs/views represented  Varied school migration strategies ◦ From ‘Big Bang’ to ‘Cohorts’ to ‘Disciplines’ ◦ Brief case studies in Proceedings paper
  4.  Creating a sense of Inclusion ◦ E.g. involving staff in planning each department migration  Ownership ◦ designing course templates request features
  5.  Templates ◦ Department Specific Visual Style ◦ Restructuring course content  Consistency ◦ Encouraging good practice
  6.  ‘Limited edition’ increases desirability ◦ Most people want to be in the ‘In Crowd’  Helps generate a ‘buzz’ ◦ Can be positive or negative though!  People want to prove they are ‘worthy’ of inclusion ◦ Engagement increases
  7.  ‘One-shot’ training ◦ Easy to forget unless put straight into practice ◦ Doesn’t respond to changes well ◦ Can come too late to result in changed practice  TeTo ◦ Reinforce earlier learning by ensuring regular use ◦ Gives time for people to explore and implement new ideas
  8.  EAs can bridge the gap between ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ ◦ Right language for the context ◦ Go through the same processes ◦ Have same pressures  ‘If X can do it, so can I’ vs. ‘I’m not doing it because X does it’ ◦ Don’t underestimate personal rivalries (both positive and negative) ◦ Select the EAs carefully.
  9.  Situated learning theory ◦ skills best learned in the same context they will be used ◦ ‘Personalised’ training materials ◦ Using their real module  Going to them ◦ Makes them feel ‘special’/important ◦ Puts them at ease, so easier to suggest other ideas ◦ Gives a view on their other processes
  10.  Keep it an informal chat, not a lecture!  Discuss their current approaches ◦ Find out reasons and problems ◦ Many people just doing things as they’ve always done  Better approach. Is there one? ◦ Push/pull factors ◦ Entrenched ideas – ‘white-lies’, best practice showcase
  11.  e.g. JISC PREDICT – Curriculum Evaluation and Redesign Project Implications:  School/University overall strategy and vision  Project management ◦ Resources ◦ Time schedule  Change management ◦ People already invested in change – Threat? Opportunity?
  12.  Moving to Moodle 2.x for 2013/14  New video and CMS platforms being implemented  Strategies being informed by the above lessons ◦ So watch this space!
