Students co creating course content and evaluating their own learning


Published on

Emerging technologies offer new ways to conceptualise teaching and learning practices by inviting further opportunities for the personalisation of inquiry-driven learning, fostering student creativity, and promoting student engagement. This session will explore ways in which you might engage students in co-creating knowledge and resources, engaging students in more openly visible learning experiences for review by their peers or the community at large.

This session focuses on how to integrate open education practices in your teaching and learning practices, what it looks like, how to engage students, which integrates open educational practices.

  3. 3. The Disposable Assignment What if we changed these “disposable assignments” into activities which actually added value to the world? Then students and faculty might feel different about the time and effort they invested in them. I have seen time and again that they do feel different about the efforts they make under these circumstances. These are assignments that students complain about doing and faculty complain about grading. They’re assignments that add no value to the world – after a student spends three hours creating it, a teacher spends 30 minutes grading it, and then the student throws it away. (Wiley, 2013)
