  9. 9. Average Four, Five Less Box Hill info and more that is applicable to UB How would you rate the usefulness of information from this workshop for your program area: (circle your preferred choice/s) Not useful Very Useful 1 2 3 4 5 Nil What questions do you have for our presenters that were not addressed in this workshop? Flexibility is the key, improved designer courses Innovative programs, raise UB profile What value can you see for the University to pursue these Certificates further in future planning? Cert II and Diploma Which Certificate/s would be most useful to your area? (circle your preferred choice/s) Cert II Cert III Cert IV Diploma Very good – need to discuss with colleagues Cert IV Outdoor Ed , Sustainable house VCAL taster program, Cert IV in IT -multimedia What possibilities do you think are there for incorporating these accredited courses into our Departmental programs? Course structure- great flexibility Flexibility to include into existing programs What seems quite straight forward? Timing, funding & registration Lack of resources and funding Fitting within Profile Funding What things in particular are hard to do? Easy to use Workshop crucial to interpret templates How easy or hard to use are the Certificates in Applied Design in Industry program templates? Usually no previous knowledge General Ideas only What knowledge did you have of the idea of incorporating design concepts into existing teaching and learning practice? Your Thoughts Question: Applied Design in Industry
  10. 11. e-portfolio Focus Groups <ul><li>Focus Groups: </li></ul><ul><li>Generic Skills Assessment </li></ul><ul><li>CGEA Youth Program </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Oracy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>GCO </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Student magazines </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CWE Horsham </li></ul>
  11. 12. Focus Group One: Generic Skills Group Focus Group Two: CGEA Group Focus Group Three: New Ideas group When do we next meet? (meetings can be online if we so choose) What days might you be available for follow up support? (circle your preferred choice) Yes – need more time, when students finish, for staff use especially, Would you be interested in joining a Focus Group which would look at creating specific e-portfolios for student or staff use? As many options as possible, add digital images, sound and recordings, creating slide shows, shared documents & info for classes, chat Pretend you have no ‘How do I questions ? ’ -what would you like to have in your e-portfolio eg content files, sound, pictures, chat, discussion board? Maybe, yes but need more hands on experience, possibly, especially with staff, yes, dependant on project involved, Do you think you would use the Learning _ by Design e-portfolio to communicate and discuss what you are trying to do and share information? Nearly all, so far so good, uploading images, creating new documents, often ok assistance wonderful, most things, most of it, log in What seem quite straight forward? Concentrate for so long! Everything -no computer background, need more practice, understanding the system (jargon & moves), importing files limited What things are hard to do? Easy, excellent start, requires further work, not difficult, fairly easy & I’m semi-illiterate with computers, navigation hard- too many steps for some students How easy or hard do you find the e-portfolios to navigate? Student records, folders & technology use, collaborative groups, teaching units, lessons, programs, Excursions, newsletters, feedback from colleagues, offsite students, best option to distribute e-learning resources b/n Tafes eg trade area support groups, flexible delivery, demonstrations, e-learning unit, Cert IV courses List at least three uses that you could see for e-portfolios in your teaching area Your Thoughts Question: e-portfolios
