  • Enroling academics in sharing teaching ideas: building a community of practice about online role play Prof Sandra Wills, University of Wollongong
  • … our thinking about repository structure and function can be enriched by expanding our perspective from a repository-centred view to a community-centred view… From Repositories Supported by Communities to Communities Supported by Repositories Carey, ascilite 2007

  • One of the key challenges is getting teachers to share design. There have been countless examples of learning object, open educational resource (OER) and good practice repositories, however their impact on changing practice has been limited… End-users rarely add resources , such sites usually require an investment in terms of someone entering resources and maintaining the repository. Conole, 2008

    • DESCRIPTION
    • As part of the Mekong e-Sim, students adopt the roles of stakeholders and respond to proposed development issues in the Mekong River basin of South-East Asia. Through research and interaction with other roles, participants build a case as to whether the proposed development should proceed, which they discuss during an on-line public inquiry.
    • AUDIENCE/GROUP SIZE
    • The Mekong e-Sim is designed to cater for between 50 and 150 students from various institutions. As the focus of the Mekong e-Sim is the exploration of the economic, social and environmental impact of large engineering projects, such as the construction of magadams, its target audience includes students from a variety of disciplines, including engineering, environmental science, geography, anthropology, Asian studies, Media studies, law etc.
    • LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
    • The learning objectives of the Mekong e-Sim include:
    • To gain an understanding and appreciation of the complexity of environmental systems and the implications this has for decision-making in relation to development projects.
    • To learn to see development projects from multiple perspectives.
    • To gain an improved understanding of the effect of development projects on the environment and society.
    • To develop communication, research, critical thinking, negotiation and decision-making skills and an appreciation of cultural differences and approaches.
    ABSTRACT Students adopt the roles of stakeholders and respond to proposed development issues in the Mekong River basin of South-East Asia in the context of a public inquiry. This enables students to develop multiple perspectives on development projects, as well as a range of generic graduate attributes.

  • “… there is as yet no convergence on a single protocol or even on an appropriate language, level, medium etc for representing effective design” and discipline-specific research on learning designs or within self-identified design communities is “more likely to lead to the development of educationally meaningful dialogues” Beetham, 2008
  • Some frameworks used by teachers to plan & document teaching (adapted from Falconer & Littlejohn, 2009) Representation Description Target users Module plan or master folder Text based overview of the module, usually available as a Word document or in paper form Tutors Programme leaders External examiners Case study Narrative overview of a teaching & learning situation – ranging from entire module to single classroom activity Tutors Course developers Briefing document Narrative overview of a teaching & learning situation, focusing on class management issues Tutors Programme leaders External examiners Pattern overview Structured, text-based structured way of analysing a pedagogic problem & conveying best practice solution Tutors Course developers Technical developers Contents table List of contents of a module or a single class Tutors Students Concept map Mapping of concepts and/or learning activities Tutors Students Learning design sequence Sequence of learning activities, sometimes shown diagrammatically Tutors Students Technical developers Storyboard Mapping of concepts and/or learning activities Tutors Instructional designers Lesson plan Matrix mapping learning activities against a timescale - lesson plans are commonly used in Further Education Tutors
