Sharing success factors for online independent learning activities

  1. 1. Sharing success factors for online independent learning activities Simon.davis@york.ac.uk University of York, UK
  2. 2. • Background• The matrix & mapped examples• Categorised support mechanisms• Next steps
  3. 3. Background - staff questions and aims• Common questions – “Show me what’s possible” – “What do I need to do to make it work”?• Aims – Highlight transferrable exemplars and approaches – Balance between ownership and simplicity; • Somewhere between “unsupportive theoretical maps” and “restrictive… black boxes” – Create accessible, visual representation to support staff
  4. 4. Background – learning design model Individual Experience Non- Reflectionreflection Information Social G.Conole et al / Computers and Education 43 (2004) 17-33
  5. 5. Independent learning activities Individual Individual practice: Personal reflection / research: Self-assessment with feedback Individual reflective blogging / Formative quizzes / screencast worked Dissertation research solutionsAutonomous Directed Collaborative “fact finding” / analysis: Group creative / problem solving: Provided data analysis exercises / Student Law Firms (PBL), Primary text Collaborative synthesis of primary reading commentary / creation for online text book Social
  6. 6. Individual Developing community of practice (Models of writing)Autonomous Directed Social
  7. 7. Individual Developing community of Primary text practice commentary / creation (Futurism)Autonomous Directed Social
  8. 8. Individual Developing community of Primary text practice commentary / creation Data analysis and presentation (Social Interaction & ConversationalAutonomous Analysis) Directed Social
  9. 9. Individual • Regular feedback • Clearly defined parameters and • Maintain individual motivation instruction • Clear instructions and rationale • Direction to appropriate resources • Short tasks for measurable skills • Clear direction to help and support development • Structure / agreed milestones for • Scaffold to greater autonomy larger projectsAutonomous Directed • Consider group dynamics / roles • Explicit benefit from group element • Common understanding of end • Consider group dynamics product • Feedback through social aspect • Engagement with marking criteria Social
  10. 10. Developing the matrix• Self access resource – Integrate with online case studies for illustration – Integrate with tools guide for implementation• Questions around the model – Is this clear, accessible and valid? – Is this undermined by fluidity? – Additional info to include?
