    27. 27. Observations Many students still wanted delivery approach Wiki use tended to be one time edit rather than ongoing review and modification Discussion board was only used when teacher was visibly active but students tended to reply to me rather than engage in extended discussion/critique Students wanted “minimum participation requirements” for online activities (eg. How many entries required?). Face-to-face was still seen as the preferred option. Students reported that technology use exceeded previousUsing blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    28. 28. Observations Journal provided opportunities for formative guidance – when it was used as expected. Some students decided to use external systems and could not demonstrate validated assessment criteria. Teaching practice for some was a useful opportunity to implement in the classroom. Online tools allowed assignment submission and monitoring of face-to-face activities. Challenges with online submission. Students reactions to emails – polarised.Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    29. 29. Observations Reportage rather than reflection. Critical awareness was limited. Little connection with the theoretical frame and established practice. Ignored connections with other educational knowledge – bullying performance did not connect with acceptable practices or structured approaches.Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    30. 30. Student Feedback It was a very practical unit with lots of hands on drama and improvisation - which was brilliant. There was also a lot of scaffolding of our tasks, which was also brilliant because Kim showed us and lead us through what we need to be doing in the classroom with our students. It was a great unit. I am really glad I did this unit and I feel a lot more confident going into a classroom and incorporating drama.Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    31. 31. Student Feedback The only difficult thing about the unit was the amount of emails we recieved from Kim, reminding us to do this, and asking us to do that. Not very many people contributed to the discussion board and for this reason Kim sent a lot of emails. A few people felt overwhelmed by the extra pressure that these emails placed on them. It does mean however, that Kim cares about our studies and is passionate about drama.Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    32. 32. Student Feedback A few of the girls complained about how many emails they received from Kim, however I thought it was great, as he was the only lecturer whom was interested in each of us individually. Our maths unit didnt even turn on the blackboard discussion board! So I really appreciated that from Kim. Loved the little activities we participated in that can be used as educational time fillers in classes! I wouldve loved to receive more of those. Thanks Kim!Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    33. 33. Student Feedback Just the pressure place us on us through the volume of emails sent. It was frustrating because not many people posted discussions on blackboard and because our class time was taken up with practical experience the only way for meaningful discourse to happen was through blackboard. So Kim tried to get everyone to contribute by sending a lot of emails - but all it did was turn a lot off people even more.Using blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
    34. 34. Suggestions Greater clarity at the outset about the nature of the online dimension. Scaffolded engagement with the technology. Network access in the teaching space. More arm’s length engagement in discussion boards. More direct engagement in blogs and journals. Review degree of student contact via email – perhaps set up an opt-in listUsing blended learning to support practical and studio-based classes 30.07.2010Curtin University is a trademark of Curtin University of TechnologyCRICOS Provider Code 00301J
