  • Moodle being customisable and open source offers many tools Challenge to choose the best tools for the jobNot get overwhelmed or try to throw the whole box at itAppropriate use
  • Illustration showing conceptual gap between technological advances with Moodle and speed of advances in relation to the ability of academics to keep “pace” with the advances. Outline the linear progression of the implementation of the BL model into the skills unit.LTs seeing steep progress lineAcademics slower and in ‘steps’ as implement in each teaching cohort. - the ethics of not experimenting on students so need to take development incrementally – responsible and considered Also time constraints and training needs, management attitudes.
  • The JourneyIncremental progress
  • Mixed responseStats and quotes
  • Support students in learning online“I feel this unit is taught in a way whicj makes me want to learn and listen, there is plently of interaction and communication in class, therefore I have no suggestions as to how this unit could be improved.”“Gavin is a superb tutor! Very helpful, well organised and very approachable. Also like how the seminars are open to discussion, rather than just hearing the tutor talk the whole time. This makes me remember the sessions more and have a better knowledge of researching on a whole”

    10. 10. What we have learned<br />Student Perspectives<br />They did engage – 54,000 hits from 500 students<br />The feedback and experience was varied but overall positive<br />They like the flexibility of online learning and generally it helps them feel engaged<br />Particularly like the powerpoints & quizzes<br />*Good contact with tutors*<br />
    11. 11. Student Quotes<br />What do you like about the unit? <br /> “the combination of online study and seminar is excellent. I can have a basic knowledge through online study first because i attend the workshop. The advantage is that I can do my online study whenever I want, rather than doing it together in the class. This measure gives me more flexibility in time management. I support this arrangement.”<br />What are you finding challenging?<br /> “Keeping up with what to do prior to each lecture, can at times feel slightly overwhelming, although the work is not hard nor is it lengthy, it just feels like there are lots of tiny deadlines for work,(rather than one large piece of work) although I do see the bigger picture.”<br />How do you think this unit could be improved?<br /> “lessons should be about the powerpoint on mycourse. our lessons are often nothing to do with what is on mycourse.”<br /> “more quizs and assessments in the virtual learning tasks for the students to prove and apply what they learn in the virtual learning tasks.”<br />Presentation Name<br />December 05<br />

Presentation Name<br />December 05<br />What we have learned<br />Lecturer Perceptions and ChallengesDeveloping academic engagement<br />“why do we have to keep changing everything every year, we are doing ok aren’t we?”<br />“they [students] won’t do the on line stuff before coming to my workshop so what can I do!!?”<br />“only half of them [students] have ever watched the on line lectures, or done the quizzes so I do it in the lesson with them”<br />
