  • (Emma) Welcome and introduction to presentation
  • Transcript

    • 1. From disorientation to application – integrated math and computing tasks David Moran, Emma Durham Hazel Owen,
    • 2. Setting the scene… <ul><li>Higher Colleges of Technology, Dubai Men’s College </li></ul><ul><li>Foundations year </li></ul><ul><li>Research Skills &amp; Projects with Comp 100 (CRSP) </li></ul>
    • 3. Overview <ul><li>Active Learning and Active Teaching </li></ul><ul><li>CRSP course’s role in addressing student’s disorientating dilemma </li></ul><ul><li>Mathematics Skill Deficiencies </li></ul><ul><li>Using computer skills </li></ul><ul><li>Addressing deficiencies </li></ul><ul><li>Research Findings </li></ul>
    • 4. Active Teaching Active Learning <ul><li>( Mezirow 1991) </li></ul>Vision 2020: passive learning active learning ‘ Adult Learners must be actively involved or engaged in the learning activity’
    • 5. Active Teaching and Active Learning Learners Real world applications Teacher facilitation Active teaching strategies Learning environment
    • 6. Integrated Learning Approach <ul><li>learning in real-world contexts, </li></ul><ul><li>process-based, cooperative and experiential learning activities; </li></ul><ul><li>teaching transferable skills; </li></ul><ul><li>facilitating students’ self-direction; </li></ul><ul><li>investigational work, problem solving, </li></ul><ul><li>small group work; </li></ul><ul><li>analysis and interpretation tasks </li></ul><ul><li>employing technology to enhance learning </li></ul>
    • 7. The CRSP Integrated Program CRSP Mathematics Research and study skills Computing English
    • 8. Mathematical skill deficiencies <ul><li>problem solving skills, </li></ul><ul><li>math terminology in English, </li></ul><ul><li>language structure and grammar of word problems, </li></ul><ul><li>analysing skills to produce correct answers, </li></ul><ul><li>employing self-directed study skills, and </li></ul><ul><li>adopting different learning strategies to address new mathematical ideas and concepts </li></ul>
    • 9. Careers Project: Applied Math Skills Tasks Off-campus survey Podcast Article analysis and quiz Decision Analysis Active Learning Strategies Computer Skills Math deficiencies
    • 10. Off Campus Survey
    • 11. Off Campus Survey
    • 12. Career Considerations Podcast Need to edit audio file – it wont stop
    • 13. Emiratisation Articles and Quiz
    • 14. Course Decision Analysis <ul><li>Use your considerations list to decide which course is best for each student. </li></ul><ul><li>Write up your decision and include your reasons on your &apos;Career Choice Homework document&apos; </li></ul>
    • 15. Anecdotal feedback <ul><li>Students felt more enjoyment for learning mathematics </li></ul><ul><li>Students preferred instruction that provided practical applications of ‘real work mathematics’ </li></ul><ul><li>Faculty believe that the active learning integrated environment provides students with a unique opportunity to learn in a much broader context </li></ul>
    • 16. Conclusion <ul><li>Active Learning and Active Teaching </li></ul><ul><li>CRSP course’s role </li></ul><ul><li>Mathematics Skill Deficiencies at DMC </li></ul><ul><li>Addressing deficiencies - integrating Math and Comp skills in applied tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Research Findings </li></ul>
    • 17. Thank-you for listening <ul><li>Are there any questions? </li></ul>
