APAC Travel 2014-15

#Good morning, my role as Vice-President, eLearning for APAC takes me to many parts of the region. These are my FB check-ins for mostly business but some personal travel over the last 2 years. [EXTRA TO FOLLOW]2

#Physical Learning Spaces

Often hybrid or blended learning requires investment in learning spaces as well as technology to support flipped classrooms, collaborative group work and so on.3

#Care not to use technology for technologys sake. Successful eLearning when technology supports the pedagogy rather than leads it.4

#Have to remind ourselves that the software that Blackboard has, and other vendors, are only tools that firstly need to be used by passionate and engaged academics but, importantly, used in ways that the software has been designed to be used.

The quality of teaching and assessment in Higher Education will, I believe, appear on the radar of the Vice Chancellors and senior management increasingly over the next 3 years as institutions compete for students in the demand driven system and the Federal Government seeks to manage the associated costs through greater attention to student progression rates and outcomes such as graduate employability.

QILT although it is a blunt instrument is the first step I believe.5

#http://www.olt.gov.au/resourcesTeaching standards framework project (2011)Professor Judyth Sachs, Professor Nick Mansfield, Ms Bronwyn Kosman, Macquarie UniversitySix standards provide the universal goals of all institutions as they relate to quality learning outcomes and the quality of the learning experience under the 3 categories

http://uniteachingcriteria.edu.au/What is the Australian University Teaching Criteria and Standards Framework?The framework is intended as a practical, flexible guide to assist a range of higher education institutions and their academic staff to clarify what constitutes quality teaching at university level. The framework is underpinned by carefully researched definitions and principles of quality teaching. These definitions and principles are expressed through seven criteria. For each criterion, the framework provides examples of practice and concludes with clearly stated expectations of levels of performance with suggested sources of evidence academics can use to demonstrate that they meet the expected performance standard. The organising principle of the framework is alignment with academic appointment and promotional levels. The framework offers examples of evidence and suggests indicative standards of achievement for each of the promotional levels A E.

http://www.utas.edu.au/student-evaluation-review-and-reporting-unit/nprnMomentum is building around the need to implement peer review of assessment to ensure the reliability and comparability of assessment outcomes and standards across higher education institutions in Australia. The Peer Review of Assessment Network project is anOffice for Learning and Teaching (OLT)supported initiative which will establish a peer review network to provide the framework to meet this need.Peer Review is core to assuring standardsFrom the proposedHigher Education Standards Framework, Standards 1.5.1 and 5.3.3 relate directly to the external benchmarking of assessment and student data for assuring student learning outcomes and achievement standards.Establishment of the Peer Review of Assessment NetworkThe purpose of the Peer Review of Assessment Network is to address these standards and develop a national conversation around the peer review of assessment. The aims of a national Peer Review of Assessment Network are to:Provide fora for sharing and disseminating good practice in external assessment across different contextsIdentify key academics experienced in external assessmentProvide professional learning opportunities for academics

Denise Chalmers1) Extend and embed the outcomes of the Australian University Teaching Criteria and Standards project;2) Investigate the feasibility of a sector-developed and endorsed Australian Professional Tertiary Teacher Standards external standard against which individuals and institutions can benchmark teacher quality3) Investigate and trial a process of peer review that will apply teaching criteria and standards and model how to assess teacher excellence and quality.

#The other key trend I wanted to touch on is that education will be delivered online and mobile everywhere.25

Focus on the Learner

#

#

The biggest change is the changing learner dynamics which give us all (Blackboard and your institution) an opportunity to create a different experience and partner in our belief that the learner should be at the center of the education experience.

We know when theseneedsaresatisfied,studentsare willing to invest resources inlearninga new skill. So it is important for us to look at how we can work with our community to improve on student satisfaction.
