  • Teachers’ Thinking Did you know? Pattern matchers http://flickr.com/photos/tmartin/32010732/
  • Considering all the facts/predictions presented, what implication does it have for your learning and teaching over the next 5-10 years? http://www.flickr.com/photos/kanaka/112972434/
  • “We are pattern processing intelligences, not information processing intelligences.” (Dave Snowden) http://www.flickr.com/photos/landerholm/3336205945/
  • If all you have ever used is a hammer, than every problem looks like a nail. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/if_all_you_have_is_a_hammer,_everything_looks_like_a_nail When solving problems, we choose the tools we are familiar with. http://www.flickr.com/photos/foxtongue/2114252956/
  • Do you agree with this proposition? Can you relate to your life experiences? How does this connect with your learning & teaching? http://www.flickr.com/photos/foxtongue/2114252956/
  • Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their problems. They depend on their slates which are more expensive. What will they do when the slate is dropped and it breaks? They will be unable to write! http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Teacher’s Conference 1703 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Students today depend on paper too much. They don’t know how to write on a slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper? http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Principal's Association 1815 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Students today depend too much upon ink. They don’t know how to use a pen knife to sharpen a pencil. Pen and ink will never replace the pencil. http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • National Association of Teachers - 1907 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Students today depend upon store bought ink. They don’t know how to make their own. When they run out of ink they will be unable to write words or ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern education. http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • The Rural American Teacher - 1928 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Students today depend on these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib. We parents must not allow them to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope in the real business world which is not so extravagant. http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • PTA Gazette - 1941 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American values of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Business and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries. http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • Federal Teachers - 1950 http://flickr.com/photos/sydneya/130164091/
  • GROUNDHOG DAY Wakes up to the same day over & over http://www.flickr.com/photos/scottobear/3270421734/
  • How does Phil’s (Bill Murray) quest to win over Rita (Andie MacDowell) connect with your teaching and learning? http://www.flickr.com/photos/scottobear/3270421734/
  • “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” http://tr.im/oCDx http://www.flickr.com/photos/cuppini/2757884114/
  • “Susan and Robert graduated *as teachers+ 20 years ago. Susan now is a teacher with 20 years’ experience; Robert is a teacher with one year’s experience repeated 19 times. Susan is a reflective teacher: each significant experience, particularly of failure, has been a learning experience, so she gets better and better. Robert is a reactive teacher. He goes through the same motions year after year … The kind of thinking displayed by Susan, but not by Robert, is known as ‘reflective practice’.” (Biggs, J., Tang, C. 2007)
  • Teachers’ Strategies 7 principles for good practice in undergraduate education Implementation ideas http://flickr.com/photos/gareandkitty/471688180/
  • The 7 Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education (7PGPUE) 7PGPUE is just one approach http://coursedesign.wordpress.com/ Its well supported by literature Its simple Its adopted by CQUni http://www.flickr.com/photos/sami73/23553038/
  • The 7PGPUE CQU’s Management Plan for L&T http://policy.cqu.edu.au/Policy/policy.jsp?policyid=999 “Implementation of the Plan will be guided by the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education endorsed by Academic Board. Chickering, A.W., & Gamson, Z. (1987). Seven principles for good practice in undergraduate education. AAHE Bulletin, 39(7), 3-7.” http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • The 7PGPUE 1. Encourages contact between students and staff Frequent student-faculty contact in and out of classes is the most important factor in student motivation and involvement. Faculty concern helps students get through rough times and keep on working. Knowing a few faculty members well enhances students' intellectual commitment and encourages them to think about their own values and future plans. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • Weekly Email contact Introduction Anecdotes and food for thought How are you going? Course barometer How are you feeling each week? http://davidtjones.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=525 http://flickr.com/photos/major_clanger/4850772/
  • Reflect on past & current practices What do you do? What have others done? that 1. Encourages contact between students and staff Form pairs and share Summarise for the group http://www.flickr.com/photos/kanaka/112972434/
  • The 7PGPUE 2. Develops Reciprocity and Cooperation Among Students Learning is enhanced when it is more like a team effort that a solo race. Good learning, like good work, is collaborative and social, not competitive and isolated. Working with others often increases involvement in learning. Sharing one's own ideas and responding to others' reactions sharpens thinking and deepens understanding http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • The “Radical” Model No lectures Students in sub-groups Compulsory use of mailing list Weekly group presentations + critiques http://tinyurl.com/c9baxq http://davidtjones.wordpress.com/publications/ online-courses-and-collaborative-learning-underlying-philosophies-and-practices/ http://flickr.com/photos/major_clanger/4850772/
  • Reflect on past & current practices What do you do? What have others done? that 2. Develops Reciprocity and Cooperation Among Students Form pairs and share Summarise for the group http://www.flickr.com/photos/kanaka/112972434/
  • The 7PGPUE 3. Encourages Active Learning Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in classes listening to teachers, memorizing pre-packaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences and apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • System Emergencies Break student computers Get them to fix it http://davidtjones.wordpress.com/publications/teaching-systems-administration-ii/ http://flickr.com/photos/major_clanger/4850772/
  • Reflect on past & current practices What do you do? What have others done? that 3. Encourages Active Learning Form pairs and share Summarise for the group http://www.flickr.com/photos/kanaka/112972434/
  • The 7 Principles 4. Gives Prompt Feedback Knowing what you know and don't know focuses learning. Students need appropriate feedback on performance to benefit from courses. When getting started, students need help in assessing existing knowledge and competence. In classes, students need frequent opportunities to perform and receive suggestions for improvement. At various points during college, and at the end, students need chances to reflect on what they have learned, what they still need to know, and how to assess themselves. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • Ask the students Anonymous discussion forum • 463 T2, 2007 FLEX students • 700+ comments Online and print learning materials • What did you like or find useful? • What caused you problems? • What would you like to see? http://flickr.com/photos/mischiru/489556007/

  • The 7 Principles 5. Emphasizes Time on Task Time plus energy equals learning. There is no substitute for time on task. Learning to use one's time well is critical for students and professionals alike. Students need help in learning effective time management. Allocating realistic amounts of time means effective learning for students and effective teaching for faculty. How an institution defines time expectations for students, faculty, administrators, and other professional staff can establish the basis of high performance for all. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/

  • The 7 Principles 6. Communicates High Expectations Expect more and you will get more. High expectations are important for everyone -- for the poorly prepared, for those unwilling to exert themselves, and for the bright and well motivated. Expecting students to perform well becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy when teachers and institutions hold high expectations for themselves and make extra efforts. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
  • You will all get HDs Have high expectations for myself Use examples of good work http://flickr.com/photos/major_clanger/4850772/

  • The 7 Principles 7. Respects Diverse Talents and Ways of Learning There are many roads to learning. People bring different talents and styles of learning to college. Brilliant students in the seminar room may be all thumbs in the lab or art studio. Students rich in hands-on experience may not do so well with theory. Students need the opportunity to show their talents and learn in ways that work for them. Then they can be pushed to learn in new ways that do not come so easily. http://flickr.com/photos/john/15327066/
