  16. 16. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Discussion Question - Jennie Some studies show that site-based mentors and program facilitators can help students achieve better outcomes in online learning environments. Should we consider this kind of approach?
  17. 17. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Online Presence

  23. 23. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Discussion Question How do you evaluate the success of our current online learning programs? “Evaluating teaching tasks by applying traditional measures is unlikely to take account of the way that students learn in a connected world or apply the use of digital technologies to develop knowledge, therefore it is an invalid measure (Loveless, 2002). An evaluation tool for the digital age would combine ideas of knowledge, teaching and learning in a connected world with the use of digital technologies.” (Starkey, 2011) Apprenticeship model? Flipped learning? 5 stage model?Students in online conditions performed modestly better, on average, than those learning the same material through traditional face-to-face instruction
  24. 24. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® What are we evaluating? • Learner success? • Learner engagement? • Success of the online tool(s)? • Organisational outcomes?
  25. 25. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Can we evaluate online learning if digital fluency is not in evidence? • No agreed definition of digital fluency Millennials place nearly last in digital literacy (OECD) Only 17% of US adults are digitally prepared Mobile & wireless
  26. 26. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ®
  27. 27. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Purpose • Organisation – Economic rationalisation – Personalising learning – Greater reach • Learners – Organisation expects it / mandates it – Career progression needs it – Job changing and need to keep up to date – Lifelong learner • Type of learning – Concepts – Competency – Detailed knowledge • Learning architect? – Levels of facilitation? – Levels of personalisation? – Mentoring?
  28. 28. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® What does an online learner look like? • Deep learner • Participatory learner • Sharing learner
  29. 29. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Delivery methods • Learning management systems • Complete integration of learning, assessment, marking, collaboration and new knowledge products • Blended learning – what aspects have been determined to be F2F and online?
  30. 30. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Pedagogical approach • Connecting and collaborating -> creativity -> critical thinking • Scaffolds • Rubrics • Personalisation
  31. 31. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Modes of assessment • Do they allow for a digital way of learning? • Or are they the same as the F2F environment?
  32. 32. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Impact on learning • Short term – do students meet outcomes required? Drop out rate? Do the resources or objects used support and engage learners? • Long term – too soon to tell
  33. 33. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ®
  34. 34. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ®
  35. 35. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® Research concluded that predominant use of digital technologies for learning were in understanding conceptual knowledge and NOT creating new knowledge We need to ensure we apply learning theories appropriate to a digital age
  36. 36. © EDUWEBINAR PTY LTD | ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ® How do you evaluate the success of our current online learning programs? • Positives – Demands professional dialogue amongst educators – Is meeting the needs of a small proportion of students – Provides learning opportunities to a broader proportion of the population • Negatives – Can polarise learners – Is not suited to mandated learning* We need to : • Match learner needs more closely to the specific environments • Stop thinking transfer and start thinking transform
