What technical knowledge is
needed in Agriculture?
Context
• Traditionally universities have focussed on the academic
approach imparting technical information and knowledge
for students to absorb.
• Agriculture is a rapidly changing industry and information
and knowledge can quickly become out-dated as new
technology and innovations are introduced
• To produce employable graduates universities need to
develop students with a wide range of skills, competencies
and understanding
Skills/Competencies
Traditional model
• Content delivery by expert, students mainly passive
• Expectation that students read more or consolidate their
knowledge in some way in own time
• Task to prompt and test learning – essay
• Teaching to the test for exam preparation
• Exam tests memory
• Assessment allows
surface learning to pass

Developing graduates for an innovative and modern agricultural sector

  • 1. sss Developing Graduates for an Innovative and Modern Agricultural Sector Henry Matthews & Nieky van Veggel Writtle University College Chelmsford, UK
  • 2. Content 1. Context 2. Technical knowledge 3. Context 4. Skills 5. Traditional model 6. The need for change 7. New approaches 8. Alignment 9. Blooms taxonomy 10. Examples of Change
  • 3. What technical knowledge is needed in Agriculture?
  • 4. Context • Traditionally universities have focussed on the academic approach imparting technical information and knowledge for students to absorb. • Agriculture is a rapidly changing industry and information and knowledge can quickly become out-dated as new technology and innovations are introduced • To produce employable graduates universities need to develop students with a wide range of skills, competencies and understanding
  • 6. Traditional model • Content delivery by expert, students mainly passive • Expectation that students read more or consolidate their knowledge in some way in own time • Task to prompt and test learning – essay • Teaching to the test for exam preparation • Exam tests memory • Assessment allows surface learning to pass
  • 7. The Need for Change • Greater accountability to the students and to government • More modern practices put the student at the centre of the process developing competences rather than gathering facts • Shift from teaching to learning and measuring learning. • Better understanding of how students learn • Changing conception of what counts as knowledge and who can create it. • Greater focus on skill development and employability. • Availability of learning resources for content delivery, e.g. web, VLE.
  • 8. New Approaches • Student is the focus of the learning experience not the lecturer • Assessment for learning not assessment of learning
  • 9. Alignment • Key idea is that all the components of a course are aligned and the drivers for this are the Learning Outcomes: what you want the students to be able to do after they have taken the course. • Assessment must be designed to check the students’ ability against the learning outcomes.

  • 11. Examples of changes • Flipped classroom and collaborative learning • Problem based learning • Research based learning • Reflective learning and self-evaluation

  • 14. The interactive lecture • Allow spaces for thinking, responding, framing questions, analysing, predicting, using what has been presented. • More effective if collaborative as stuck students can catch up by learning from others and all stretch their understanding . • A gap with nothing is more effective overall than a non-stop lecture
  • 16. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) • Began in 1960s • Classic definition – “learning that results from the process of working towards the understanding of a resolution of a problem”. (Barrows and Tamblyn 1980:1). • Usually in student groups • Problem design is crucial to success
  • 17. What does PBL look like • Tutor provides prompt – something complex that, when investigated fully, will need the threshold concept(s) with no right answer, or only one way to approach it • Students work in groups • Could last one session or whole module • Tutor meets groups to check on progress, provide guidance.
  • 18. Good quality problems are: • Engaging and motivating • Authentic, real-world, from professional/ social life • Open to multiple ideas/hypotheses, sustain discussion • Multi-dimensional with physical, cognitive, social, emotional, ethical dimensions • Challenge students to achieve learning outcomes, understand threshold concepts, work on problems • Graduate attributes-focused: Enhance teamwork, critical thinking, creative problem solving.
  • 19. Prompts • An article • An experience related • A video • A photograph • A field walk • Farm visit
  • 20. Some examples • Posters as assessment  Year 1 → research paper  Year 3 → own research • Flexible, CV-19 proof  Online/offline  Live/recorded • Transferable skills
  • 21. Some examples • Industry case studies  PBL  Lecturer-steered  Data relevant and up to date  Industry reps can be involved
  • 22. Some examples • Online/mobile quizzes  Check understanding  Gamification  Maintain interest  Various alternatives  offline/snowballing/etc.
  • 23. Some examples • Portfolios  Allow for collections of different types of assessment in a coherent manner  Flexible  Online or offline  Example: https://zsdeportfolio.weebly.com/
