I hear ya lady!
We hear you! Thanks for using H5P Studio! ;)
Our paralegal department also requires final exams
Same with UTM that is where I have been focusing most of my support in term of rethinking pedagogy
The biggest concern we have from faculty are how students complete labs and placements.
We often teach how we were taught.
Yes Mel, that is the same for us at Loyalist. Lots of questions and faculty are finding it challenging to think about alternatives
Yes, and they are worried that accrediting bodies won't accept their alternatives. There hasn't been much clear direction from the accrediting bodies from what I've heard
The Ontario Extend Collaborator module helps educators become collaborators in a teaching and learning context. You might be engaging in these practices right now and this module will help you explore why being open to collaboration is key to building a personal learning network (PLN)!
That would be great!
I very much agree with Michelle
We love facilitating sprints at eCampus!
Michelle, that is one of our biggest fear with this. People are posting on the LMS and thinking they are now doing an online course.
The fear is that they will then say online doesn't work.
That chat window!
@Tricia. I hear you! Bad online courses are worse than a bad f2f course sometimes
Makes students share their side conversations with the whole class, and prof
We have a blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities and content depending on the faculty (though I have been promoting the asynchronous for accessibility reasons)
It takes us up to 3 months to develop a "good" basic asynchronous course.
Wow...that's interesting to note Michelle
With part-time contracts - I have no access to F/T developers
Michelle -- really? You can't access EDs/IDs?
Nope - I have one on contract be she focuses on quality review and support. She cannot do development work.
Hi everyone, Shelby here. I am the copyright services librarian at Centennial College.
And people forget that "teaching" is different from "learning" when it comes to what a good course is.
Hi Shelby! Welcome :)
Thanks Lillian, hi!
That's too bad --- all faculty PT/FT should have access to developers, as needd
Well said Michelle,
Good point Giulia - profs don’t need to be lecturing to be teaching! I wrote about this today - https://www.jamesmskidmore.com/skidwriting/dont-teach-facilitate
Empathy is so important in designing effective learning experiences.
this upcoming generation is going to force us to rethink how we do things
This is a common conversation I have with folks!
Well said, Lena!
Yes! I always say to do the best you can
Workload is such a huge factor in all of this
I found Waldo!
Time for marking is also SWFted so is there not a "cost" to more complex assignments (and therefore the added marking load)?
Here's an article on the grade abolition movement Culum wrote back in 2012
Thanks Giulia! Thanks everyone!
Thanks everyone. Happy Friday
Thanks G. Thanks everyone.
bye thank you
