Kingston teaching excellence event

  1. 1. Teaching and Learning in the Open: How does this Relate to ‘Excellence’? Vivien Rolfe @vivienrolfe Intestinal Physiologist and Open Educator CC BY (unless assets otherwise indicated)
  2. 2. Presentation for: University of Kingston Teaching Excellence Conference 22nd June 2016 This was a fantastic event organised by Dr Nick Freestone at Kingston. The audience Comprised students and academic staff, mainly those involved in sciences. The audience very enthusiastically received the idea of open educational resources and there is a need here to support them in understanding about Creative Commons licenses and to help them participate in the open science community.
  3. 3. How do you define TEACHING EXCELLENCE? Question posed to students and teachers in the audience. The main idea from both sides was the importance of building effective relationships. This is at the heart of what good teaching is all about.
  4. 4. PhD title: “Mechanisms of action of E. coli STa” Little girl with kwashiorkor By Dr. Lyle Conrad [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons, Available: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwashiorkor#/media/File:Starved_girl.jpg In my talk I described a recent lecture with year two undergraduate students in which I presented my PhD research from 15 years earlier. Here is a quote from my dissertation.
  5. 5. Mechanisms of intestinal secretion derived from the research.
  6. 6. Cl- GC STa cGMP CFTR 2Cl- Na+ K+ Transporter Osmosis Water Nitrinergic Myenteric secretory reflex Remote secretion ? ? Rolfe & Levin 1994, 1999 Water Capsaicin-sensitive
  7. 7. Lin et al 2010, WHO 2016 • Globally ~ 6 million children under the age of 5 die. • Diarrhoea is joint leading cause of death with pneumonia. • Disease is preventable (good sanitation/nutrition) and exacerbated by malnutrition as gut becomes hypersecretory. Mechanisms - 2010 Statistics - 2016
  8. 8. What do we conclude about science? I led this discussion with students at the time. Reflecting on how little the field had advanced, other than providing new molecular detail, but how this hadn’t impacted on the global statistics. We had an interesting conversation about global distribution of wealth, and who determines global research agendas.
  9. 9. Rolfe VE & Levin RJ. (1998). Neural and non- neural activation of electrogenic secretion by 5-HT. Acta Physiologica Scandinavica 162, pp. 469-474. Intense rivalry and competition between research teams Lack of reproducibility
  10. 10. Is there another way?
  11. 11. Maybe – through an open science approach? Largest systematic review ever with over 180 contributors. Global consensus on the management of Barrett’s oesophagus across 15 medical areas e.g. histology, endoscopy, treatment. Ethos of collaboration with open critical review. Big problem solved without the need for big funding.

  18. 18. Impact on students • VAL – supported student transitions to lab sciences. Built confidence (Rolfe 2009). • “It is excellent to see such hard work being distributed throughout the world for free. I feel proud of the fact that I study at DMU” (DMU student). Rolfe 2009
  19. 19. Supporting global health promotion • Sharing health policies / guides under open license for translation. • Supported further funding and REF Impact Case Study.
  20. 20. What does this mean for teachers and institutions? • The need for new digital literacies • The need to consider new educational business models (open texts reduce costs; z-degrees; 6 month degrees) • Use of big datasets / open datasets in research projects? • How to explore the idea that the ‘classroom’ and the ‘lab’ aren’t the only spaces for teaching and research…. • OER TRANSFORMS TEACHING PRACTICE…. “It has changed my practice in terms of whenever I’m doing anything I think how could this be an OER or how could it supplement what I’m doing” (DMU teacher)
  21. 21. Where are our boundaries? • What are our ethical boundaries online? Do MOOCs provide global education opportunities for all or are they about the selling-on of student data; are illegal downloads of research papers wrong or a good skill to have? http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/04/whos-downloading-pirated-papers-everyone
