  • Feedback for PGR/ECR Activity 1

    1. 1. Feedback for Activity 1Phil Marstonp.marston@abdn.ac.uk
    2. 2. Feedback for Activity 1 “Provide a written rationale which sets out what you understand effective learning to be, and how you think your teaching supports this.” www.abdn.ac.uk
    3. 3. Feedback for Activity 1 This was a formative exercise, so no one provided the wrong answer. As a formative exercise this was an opportunity for you to reflect on what effective learning is and your role in that. It was also an opportunity for us to reflect on what we have conveyed. There were a range of responses to the exercise and we thought it would be useful to provide feedback to the group as a whole. www.abdn.ac.uk
    4. 4. Feedback for Activity 1 Our rationale and expectations. The purpose of Activity 1 was two fold: 1st to help you consolidate your understanding of the subject matter - education as its own discipline. 2nd to begin to prepare you for the summative exercise (Post-session Activity 4), in which you will be required to demonstrate how your own practice aligns with the professional standards framework. www.abdn.ac.uk
    5. 5. Feedback for Activity 1 In light of our rationale and of the submissions we also realise that perhaps we need to be clearer in the wording of our question. “With reference to the literature and the programme so far, provide a written rationale which sets out what you understand effective learning to be, and how you think your teaching supports this.” www.abdn.ac.uk
    6. 6. Review for Activity 1 What is Effective Learning? Some of you found a useful quote: Learning is an activity “which enables the learner to draw upon previous experience to understand and evaluate the present, so as to shape future action and formulate new knowledge.” Abbott, J. (1994) Learning makes sense: re-creating education for a changing future. Letchworth: Education 2000 www.abdn.ac.uk
    7. 7. Review for Activity 1 What is Effective Learning? Learning is an activity “which enables the learner to draw upon previous experience to understand and evaluate the present, so as to shape future action and formulate new knowledge.” What strikes you as the key features contained in this quote? www.abdn.ac.uk
    8. 8. Review for Activity 1 What is Effective Learning? What strikes you as the key features contained in this quote? • the learner (their actions) • prior experience/knowledge (the past) • the present (knowledge/understanding) • the future (new knowledge/understanding) Where do you fit in this picture? www.abdn.ac.uk
    9. 9. Review for Activity 1 What is Effective Learning? Some of you mentioned Blooms Taxonomy Do you think this would be a useful measure of the effectiveness of learning?Anderson, LW & Krathwohl DR (eds.) (2001). A Taxonomy for Learning, Teaching, andAssessing: A Revision of Blooms Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. New York: Longman www.abdn.ac.uk
    10. 10. Review for Activity 1 Something to watch out for: This is a necessarily short course and we have picked out literature that we believe provides a brief but sound grounding in the vast discipline that is education. Neither Abbott or Anderson & Krathwohl were on the reading list ... It is good that many of you went beyond the recommended reading, but ... Be wary of (critically appraise) what you come across in wider reading (e.g. neuroeducation). www.abdn.ac.uk
    11. 11. Review for Activity 1 Neuroeducation - Howard-Jones offers a word of caution Howard-Jones, P. (2010) Introducing Neuroeducational Research. Oxon:UK. Routledge www.abdn.ac.uk
    12. 12. Review for Activity 1 If in doubt ... leave it out www.abdn.ac.uk
    13. 13. Review for Activity 1 Other key points to reflect on: • Almost everyone mentioned the importance of motivation, feedback, knowledge construction • Some of you mentioned deep, surface and strategic learning • recognition of diversity and difference (social, cultural, developmental) • students taking personal responsibility vs you taking responsibility? • not one size of learning - not one size of teaching www.abdn.ac.uk
    14. 14. Review for Activity 1Wikipedia often has an account of the basics of theories, withaccounts of where they are disputed and where to go to read at greater depth. James Atherton’s website http://www.learningandteaching.info/teaching/what_works.htm www.abdn.ac.uk
    15. 15. Any questions? www.abdn.ac.uk
    16. 16. Come Here.Go Anywhere. That’s the difference
