  • Have you had some wow learning experiences yourself? Share these, and why wow for you. Play telephone game.
  • Aim is that your whole course must be to ‘wow’; ‘unflat’ course should be the usual In teaching, wowing is not a single event, but a process; everything in course – from pre-course contact, to learning guide, to class meetings and tutorials/practicals, to email contact, to face-to-face one-on-one meetings, assessment practices, tutor engagement – is consciously put together to ‘wow’ Is about opening the student eyes/head; get the penny to drop
  • Can’t assume that because you teach, students will
  • ‘ Wow’ through both content and the way content is delivered by you - Passion and expertise of lecturer (model to your students) Start strong / with quality – get attention (party tricks such as toilet paper, foot spa, flying planes, flash mob) Have element of surprise (destablise) Ensure relaxed atmosphere within structure: permission to try and make mistakes, but have to learn from mistakes Respectful engagement with students; being accessible
  • Using tech is a TOOL that can be used for wow learning. Tech can be anything.

  • Lifelong learners Can learn how to learn Independent learners Metacognitive Intrinsically motivated Focus on self improvement
  • Evaluate information for authenticity, relevance and bias. Evaluate tools for applicability and effectiveness. Intuitively filter and focus.
  • Able to create something new and communicate those ideas with a wide audience in an appropriate way Using multiple media to send a message
  • Time, space, location are not boundaries
  • Videos: Academic Earth (online courses from world’s top scholars)
  • Prominent idea in this field is benchmarking = “the process of comparing one’s business processes and performance metrics to industry bests and/or best practices from other industries”. If know how compare, what next? Best practice do become obsolete as context change Best practice = Prescribed practice Best practice good for novices, to get up to speed with status quo
  • Rather that focus on the past (benchmarking), focus on the future: “While best practice is a snapshot of what we know has worked well in the past, next practice is an attempt to take that prior experience and improve upon it rather than merely replicate it” Not about reaching a goal, but the journey Focus on process Not looking for quick-fix, magic bullets What are the opportunities ahead
  • Best practice is necessary Learn from what worked in past over time Ensure quality through benchmarking But best practice not sufficient Next practice helps one think of what drives learning process
  • Repetition also part of this Face-to-face interaction for reinforcing concepts, not communicating content ~ Neil Butcher at Wits Big class teaching
