3.Portable Moodle
4.eBook readers
5.ePub format
6.Evaluation
Overview
Why we are doing this?
• Reduced recidivism
• Increased employment
opportunities
• Enhanced success in future
studies
• Increased participation by
low SES in HE
• Experience comparable to
that of other students
Background
Offenders may be considered the most educationally
disadvantaged population.
Education can assist:
• Break the cycle of poverty, abuse, crime, poor health, poor
education
• Rehabilitation
• Encourage reparation activities
• Successfully reintegrate prisoners
Education of Incarcerated Offenders
Role ofTertiary Education
Whilst ‘inside
• Enhance self-esteem
• Keep brain active & challenged
• Gain qualifications
• Natural progression as skills develop L &N Year 10 TPP Uni
• New area of expertise for existing highly qualified offenders
Reduction in recidivism ( up to 28% due to Education) Callan & Gardner, 2005
Reduced cost to the community
Enhance employment opportunities upon release
300 bed, male, high security
Restrictions of studying ‘inside’:
• Increasing on-line delivery – improving access & equity; BUT hard copies for
incarcerated students – sustainability (printing reams of materials)
• Reliance on ‘goodwill’ of Education Officers:
• Research and print materials (over 50 distance ed students) can be hit & miss
• Log on to the study desk – create student profile, assessment covers, passwords
• Email lecturers
• Send, receive all assignments & track these
• Document results in IOMS
• Time consuming for Education staff to research and print -
• Skills of University Graduates – research and analysis
• Use of digital media
• Lack of direct interaction between students and lecturers
• Forums/discussion boards – students assisting each other
• Practical components of higher degrees e.g. residential schools; PhD research
South Queensland Correctional Centre
Tertiary Student Support
Existing systems to assist success:
•Access to Learning Support Officers (internal customer service ethos)
•Distance Education Library
•In-cell laptops - limited number
•USQ – delivery of hard copy materials
•Alternatives forms of materials / assessments (on-line assessments)
•Peer tutors
Portable Moodle & eReaders:
•Build on existing systems
•Enhance outcomes - encourage independence in students; develop
research skills, experience with digital media
•Decrease reliance on Learning Support Staff
• For prospective students of the University
of Southern Queensland who are over 18
and can’t gain entry via traditional
pathways
• Typically between 8 and 15 students at
Borallon Correctional Centre (soon to be
relocated to South Queensland
Correctional Centre)
• Receive readings as a paper ‘block’
• Education officers assist by downloading
materials for assignments
• http://www.usq.edu.au
Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP)
• As part of the Moodle 2.1 upgrade
• Runs without internet connection
• Installed on local server and accessed in
computer labs
• Comparable experience to other TPP students
• Discussion board (only within CC instance of
TPP7120)
• Submit assessment via Study Desk
Portable Moodle
eBook Readers
• No internet, wireless, 3G connectivity
• No removable batteries
• Ability to take notes
• Highlight text
• Submitted on certain days for charging (so
never in possession of cord)
• Contain course readings
