 T E C H N O L O G Y- E N A B L E D A C T I V E L E A R N I N G • Collaborative learning • (groups from 3-9) • Desktop experiments linked to laptops • Media-rich visualisations & simulations • Personal response systems to stimulate interaction between instructor and students http://web.mit.edu/edtech/casestudies/teal.html
  3. 3. Instead of frustrating and stressing students with failure rates at exams, we want to reward them for putting extra effort to account for mistakes and not punish them for failing one single exam. + F U N & E N G A G E M E N T B A S E D O N G A M E D E S I G N
  4. 4. C O M B I N E I N T E R A C T I V E E N G A G E M E N T W I T H G A M I F I C AT I O N • Constant interaction and involvement • Collaborative learning (groups of 3) • Immediate and motivational feedback (points, badges) • Errors are allowed (revise, improve and get better) • Adaptive class design (measure learning progress and consider reflection information)

  7. 7. S O M E F I N D I N G S • Subjects: students from Course ISR • 3 year in a row -> constant improvements + evaluations • “Group Activities” • Liked group work (M=3.38; SD 1.32 based on 5 PT Likert scale) • “The group assignments during classes were the best concept. […] apply the concept just learned to remember it better, but also discuss eventual misunderstandings“ • “Motivational Aspects” • Liked collection points (M=3.95; SD=1.12) • Liked elective bonus assignments (M=3.57; SD=1.25) • [I liked] the chance to improve already graded work … a motivating thing to immediately see received points” • I liked the interactive learning. The structure of the course, some parts lecture, immediately followed by exercises, was nice.”
