HEART (HEaring And Realising Teaching voice) is a learning design support strategy for teachers and learning designers involved in planning, developing or reviewing course (or learning) designs. The strategy helps users to elicit and visualise what we have called the 'teaching voice'; that is, the confluence of teaching beliefs and educational practice in the form of pedagogical dimensions.

The HEART strategy involves using a questionnaire that addresses these pedagogical dimensions, a visualisation tool, and facilitated face-to-face and online discussion. It can be used in a variety of course or resource development stages (e.g. planning, design, or review), either collaboratively between course lecturers and learning designers, by individual teachers or learning designers, or by a teaching programme team. Once the questionnaire is completed, the results are submitted directly to the visualisation tool. The visual representations illustrate the pedagogical dimensions of the course or learning design. Currently we are trialling different visual representations and dimensions, including the 'bubble chart' you see above.

Transcript

  • 1. Reviewing learning designs with HEART A learning design support strategy DONALD, C., BLAKE, A., GIRAULT, I., DATT, A. & RAMSAY, E. (2009). Approaches to learning design: past the head and the hands to the HEART of the matter . Distance Education, 30, (2), pp.179-199.
  • 2. Reviewing learning designs with HEART A learning design support strategy
    • HEART role play & overview
    • [30 mins]
    • Use HEART tools and parts of HEART strategy
    • [45 mins]
    • Critique, feedback, discussion
    • [15 mins]
  • 3. pptPlex Section Divider What is HEART? The slides after this divider will be grouped into a section and given the label you type above. Feel free to move this slide to any position in the deck.
  • 4. The origins of HEART HE aring A nd R ealising T eaching-voice
    • learning designer - teacher collaboration: the voices of each may be more or less ‘audible’ in the final design output
    • Project teams often have discordant voices
    • eLearning development may be expedited if we can harmonise (‘sing from the same page’)
    • Choices in pedagogical strategies and reuse of learning designs will be more effective if we can discern our own voice and project it into practice
  • 5. ‘ Teaching voice’
    • “ the middle ground of educational design is 'the difficult territory in which philosophy and pedagogical tactics have to be aligned' (Goodyear, 2005, p. 85). This is where belief and practice converge, or where pedagogical beliefs find voice as pedagogical practice . It is this confluence of belief and practice that we have termed teaching voice .”
    • Donald et al., 2009, p. 184
  • 6. Levels of educational design
    • Pedagogical tactics (tools, tips, techniques)
    • Pedagogical strategy
    • High-level pedagogy
    • Pedagogical philosophy
    • Goodyear, 2005 .
  • 7. Levels of educational design
    • Pedagogical tactics (tools, tips, techniques)
    • Pedagogical strategy
    • High-level pedagogy
    • Pedagogical philosophy
    “ the middle ground of educational design is 'the difficult territory in which philosophy and pedagogical tactics have to be aligned' (Goodyear, 2005, p. 85).
  • 8. The power of beliefs over practice
    • “ Knowledge systems are open to evaluation and critical examination; beliefs are not … And yet, for all their idiosyncrasies … beliefs are far more influential than knowledge in determining how individuals organize and define tasks and problems and are stronger predictors of behavior .”
    • Pajares, 1992, p. 311
  • 9. Belief/practice dimensions
    • “… we believe that more research-led academic staff development is needed in the CAL area. One approach worth further investigation would involve academic teachers coding their own beliefs and practices in sessions facilitated by staff developers, and then deciding how they might incorporate technology into their framework so as to enhance student learning.”
    • Bain & McNaught, 2006, p. 112
  • 10. Reconciling teacher beliefs, learning design and technology integration
    • Does your learning design reflect your pedagogical vision?
    • “ To negotiate … technology environments and create effective learning designs, teachers require opportunities to resolve tensions across their own belief systems…. to articulate their pedagogical beliefs and beliefs about technologies ...”
    • Steel, 2009, p. 417

  • 18. Entering the social network…
  • 19. Completing the questionnaire…
  • 20. Question format…
  • 21. Accessing the results…
  • 22. Pedagogical dimensions as a bubble chart…
  • 23. Pedagogical dimensions as a treemap…
  • 24. Where to next?
    • Review questionnaire?
    • Starting from scratch with a new set of dimensions? (eg Toohey’s 5 approaches to course design)
    • Validating questionnaire, or locating one ‘off the shelf’ (eg Approaches to Teaching Inventory), and/or using other tools (eg Teaching Perspectives Inventory)?
    • Customise for questionnaire & visualisation software
    • Implement with project teams
    • Trial online (distance) use and social network (Elgg)
    • Seek further collaboration with other researchers
