  • What to do? • 300+ students in the course • Assignment just submitted online • Some haven’t submitted
  • • (Lockyer et al, 2013) • Would have allowed for modification of the learning design ‘on the fly’ if the intended experience or outcomes were not being realized. • “While this learning analytics tool theoretically supports the implementation stage of that educational continuum - to date it has been largely used as a reflective tool. • Further research is required to investigate how educators can be better prompted when student interactions indicate a deviation from the intended learning outcomes.
  • Types of Affordances • CRM like • Comparisons, reflections and annotations • Recommendations • Knowledge sharing with others – Analysis – Intervention – Repercussions

  • http://flickr.com/photos/tonymangan/754511201/ 1. Tested material prior to teaching 2. Lack of time to re-teach topics 3. Lack of training 4. Lack of time (Tyler, 2013)
  • Quality Feasibility What can be done to remove the impediments to quality teaching? This is a question that institutions rarely ask, although individual expert teachers continually do. It is one thing to have a model for good teaching, but if there are institutional policies or structures that actually prevent the model from operating effectively, then they need to be removed. (Biggs, 2001, p. 223)
