  9. 9. Seizing the Learning World G Salmon 9 Outcomes for students at the University of Western Australia 1/12/2016
  10. 10. The Study – Semester 1 2016: • 11 newly designed modules in 6 faculties. • Module coordinators attended Carpe Diem in 2015. • Over 1500 students. • Triangulated qualitative and quantitive approach • ~40% response rate to online student surveys. Seizing the Learning World G Salmon 10 Does Carpe Diem learning design - make a difference to student learning? 1/12/2016
  11. 11. Research Approach: • Carpe Diem collaborative redesigns, then… • Participatory action research (module coordinators + research associate). • Investigated impact on student satisfaction or learning. Methods: • Interviews • Student surveys and focus groups • Discussion of results with coordinators Carpe Diem Study (Sunspot) Seizing the Learning World G Salmon 111/12/2016
  12. 12. Case Study 1: Marketing Research Module: Undergraduate, 2nd year, n= 320 Aim: Create a strong pedagogical and engagement pathway. Measure of success: Access to resources, participation and engagement, knowledge construction, assessment & feedback. Innovation: Designed a digital ‘visual organiser’. Response from students: Very high levels of student satisfaction with clarity in module expectations presented through visual organisers. Student A: “I find the weekly visual organiser very helpful, it makes things a lot more clear to me in relation to what's happening in the upcoming week. I like the weekly quizzes a lot: they encourage me to learn the content from the week. I prefer this type of assessment over others.” Action planned: Post-survey interview still to occur.

  14. 14. Aim: Promote collaboration and enhance interaction towards a learning community. Measure of success: Increase students interaction with each other. Innovation: Flipped approach – Facebook plus presentation in class. Response from module coordinator and students: Module coordinator: “So we tried to tweak the entire mechanism. There are actually ways on Facebook where you can make groups, hide posts from anybody who’s not the member of the group. So this is really working, and employing Facebook to help build community was another aspect of this. So now they spend two hours a week sitting in tutorial and talking to their friends. And, it is working. This aspect is really working. There are no absences in the tutorials”. Student C: “The weekly Facebook posts were very helpful for the final assessment as I used the summaries to help with my revising and to help link certain projects together to use as examples for the final essay”. Student D: “Images and text are helpful to understand the unit course well. The comments from the tutor are impressive as well”.

  16. 16. Aim: Build continuity between Semester 1 and Semester 2 modules; encourage reflection. Module coordinator: “Within the CD workshop I had three ideas of what I wanted to do – three activities. One was to bring a quiz, ..I wanted to do some form of reflection so the quizzes would be individual, reflection”. Measure of success: Participation, engaging with reading, continuity within module. Innovation: Flipped classes, integrating quizzes in students learning activities, online reflection activities, using photos as forms of reflection. Response from students: Very high levels of student satisfaction evident in survey response. Student C: “The activities presented were interactive and useful for future teaching purposes…All lessons and activities were highly engaging and well scaffolded. All lessons were highly interactive. I found this unit fun from start to finish, and looked forward to every workshop session. Definitely my favourite unit this semester. The assessments, while intense, were extremely useful to my learning. Best unit ever”.

  18. 18. Aim: Previous SURF (Students’ Unit Reflective Feedback) results indicated dissatisfaction that the module coordinator was keen to address. Context: “……whilst the level of satisfaction expressed by the students in response to the intervention is not high, the module coordinator considered it was an improvement on the response received at the end of the previous semester (in SURF) and felt encouraged”. Measure of success: Improved levels of satisfaction in the student learning experience. Innovation: Use of quizzes for engagement. Response from students: Student G:“Multiple choice questions are good for understanding the content but to test their understanding of the content, it’s important that students get exposed to exams level questions”. Action planned: In the remaining few weeks of the semester, the Module Coordinator intended to address the misconceptions evident in the survey responses.

  20. 20. Aim: To achieve high levels of engagement, participation and critical thinking skills through an integrated module design. Measure of success: High levels of engagement and participation. Innovation: SPARK (Self and Peer Assessment Resource Kit) provides the framework for the online group activities. Response from students: Positive response from students. Student A: “I've heard horror stories about this unit from friends who've graduated with a communication major in the last few years. I understand there have been changes made to the unit, and given I found it was quite easy to manage and engage with, I assume the changes have been very positive in improving the unit”.

  22. 22. Aim: Investigate different types of pre-laboratory activities and how the activities can prepare students for a practical session. Measure of success: High levels of engagement prior to lab activities. Innovation: Introduction of different types of interactive pre-lab videos and pre-lab online quizzes. Response from students: Student J: “The pre lab activities were very helpful in preparing for the lab and review workshops and it was great to have 2 attempts and be able to see where I went wrong between attempts. Labs have also been more enjoyable/less stressful when I can just focus on completing the experiment and then can take the lab sheet home to complete”. Data/Evidence: In process. Action planned: Publish and present research finding at a national science education conference in September this year.
