Session Outline<br /><ul><li>An Introduction to Viewpoints.
4 themes, 2 views</li></li></ul><li>Assessment and Feedback Principles<br />REAP (http://www.reap.ac.uk/)<br />Clarify good performance.<br />Encourage time and effort on task.<br />Deliver high quality feedback.<br />Provide opportunities to act on feedback.<br />Encourage interaction and dialogue.<br />Develop self-assessment and reflection.<br />Give assessment choice.<br />Encourage positive motivational beliefs.<br />Inform and shape your teaching.<br />*Implementation ideas for each principle on back of cards.<br />
Learner Engagement Principles<br /> The principles of learner engagement are based upon the 8 Learning Events Model developed by LabSET, University of Liège, Belgium. <br />Receive.<br />Create.<br />Debate.<br />Explore.<br />Imitate.<br />Experiment.<br />Practice.<br />Meta-Learn.<br />*Implementation ideas for each principle <br />on back of cards. <br />http://www.flickr.com/photos/viewpointsproject/<br />
Information Skills Principles<br />SCONUL 7 Pillars (http://www.sconul.ac.uk)<br />Define the task and understand the topic.<br />Identify appropriate resources.<br />Search effectively.<br />Find and extract information.<br />Compare and analyse information.<br />Organise and share information ethically.<br />Interpret information and create new content.<br />*Implementation ideas for each principle on back of cards.<br />
Creativity and Innovation Principles<br />CHEP creativity working group (http://www.ulster.ac.uk/centrehep/creativity_curriculum.html)<br />Collaborative learning.<br />‘Open-box’ modules.<br />Negotiation.<br />‘Real-life’ learning situations.<br />Novel approaches to learning.<br />Assessment that focuses on process.<br />Use of debates.<br />Beyond the discipline.<br />Enquiry-based learning.<br />*Implementation ideas for each principle on back of card have still to be added.<br />
CourseLevel Perspective<br />Supports those who wish to look at Course View.<br />
Users/teams define the outputs<br />These can be orderly or messy – it’s up to the team.<br />
Workshop Tasks<br /><ul><li>An opportunity for you to use some of the Viewpoints resources.</li></li></ul><li>Task 1:Agree your objective (5 minutes)<br /><ul><li>Consider your ‘objective’ and record details in space on the worksheet.
E.g. Retention, Graduate Qualities, Employability, Entrepreneurship, Study Skills, Assessment and Feedback, Currency of the Curriculum, Year 1 Transition.
Decide/agree which theme you would prefer to use as you consider this objective.
Choose 1: learner engagement, assessment and feedback, information skills or creativity and innovation.
You might find it useful to make notes on the worksheet using markers or post-its as you go along.</li></li></ul><li>Task 2 – Select principles (5 minutes)<br />Spend about 5 minutes exploring the principles provided (front of cards) and choose any that may help address your objective.<br />
Task 3 – Map principles to student learning timeline (10 minutes)<br /><ul><li>Place the cards on the student timeline, where you think relevant, considering your objective(s) and the student perspective.Note: you can place the same cards in more than one place on the timeline.</li></li></ul><li>Task 4 – Select implementation ideas (20 minutes)<br />Turn over the most important card(s) and select ideas that could help your group achieve your objective.<br />Discuss how your ideas could be used in practice. <br />Make notes using post-its or markers on the worksheet.<br />Note any overall action points and reflections.<br />
Task 5 –Decide what you would like to share<br /><ul><li>One or two members from each group will be asked shortly to briefly feed back progress and key features of your group output.
Spend a few minutes now deciding what your group would like to share. Each group will have a minute or two to share.</li></li></ul><li>Before we discuss/share some of our findings we would appreciate it if you could spend a few minutes completing a short evaluation questionnaire.<br />
Task 6 – Share your plans<br /><ul><li>One or two members from each group should briefly feed back progress and key features of your group work.</li></li></ul><li>Some benefits we have observed from workshops to date<br />
