Student Achievement in the Digital Age: How emergent technologies can enhance the academic experience

  1. 1. Professor Richard Hall @hallymk1 rhall1@dmu.ac.uk richard-hall.org NUCCAT// 19 November 2015 Student Achievement in the Digital Age: How emergent technologies can enhance the academic experience
  2. 2. 1. Digital transformation and productivity: the policy space for higher education and technology 2. The academic experience of which students? 3. The relationship between emergent technologies and student achievement
  3. 3. The policy/practice space for HE and technology 1.HE Green Paper focuses on teaching intensity, student commitment to learning, and learning environment 2.HM Treasury Productivity Plan rooted in digital transformation and disruption 3.The Small Business, Enterprise and Employability Act includes ‘Education Evaluation’ that promotes human capital theory (skills, expertise, employability) 4.Jisc work on building digital capability: leadership, pedagogy and efficiency [NOTE: see also trade liberalisation and the TTIP]
  4. 4. Across the higher education system, institutions are using technology in innovative ways. Yet conventional universities no longer hold all the cards on how the higher education market develops. Although MOOCs are still at a relatively early stage, they are evolving fast and may have the potential to tackle some particular challenges – such as an apparent mismatch between the supply and demand for high-level computer skills.

  6. 6. Interactions between policy/practice change the contexts for student achievement, rooted in “intensity”, “productivity”, “gain”. 1.Data: learning analytics; open data; c.f. concerns over The Patriot Act and information governance 2.Learning content: open repositories; enterprise reading lists 3.Accreditation: open badges; e-portfolios; competency-based 4.Personalisation: universal design for learning; assistive technologies; productivity tools; mobile 5.Social: open education (MOOCs); cloud-based services
  7. 7. We might ask: enhancing the academic experience of which students? 1.The dominant, universal narrative of technology and “progress”, “efficiency”, “employability”: Pearson 2.Alternative uses of technology outside formal HE: ds106 and community learning/accreditation 3.Alternative uses of technology inside formal HE: Why is My Curriculum White? and Rhodes Must Fall
  8. 8. doubling the amount of really high value learning: being more global; being more mobile; thinking holistically; being absolutely obsessed with learning outcomes “building an ever-wider range of bigger and more complex standalone products and services to participating in more open, interoperable educational ‘ecosystems’, centered around learners” Pearson’s Five Trillion Dollar Question: http://bit.ly/1iaRaMp Rizvi, S., Donnelly, T., and Barber, M. 2013.
