Anyone wondering about CEED module choices?
FYI and to make choices easier, there are a couple of very good and useful CEED units that I'd recommend and you may wish to consider.
Options 2 and 3 are currently in progress but will be repeated later in the year as indicated below. So don’t be put off by the fact that the application date has passed. Information for each module is as per the link provided.
- Designing Blended Learning in Moodle with Barb Macfarlan - apply by 8th May 2017
- Fostering Collaborative Learning with Laurence Orlando - apply by 13th Nov - Registration details will be available by end of April
- Designing Constructive Alignment with Kim Anh Dang and Julia Lamborn (this one I've had no feedback on but looks interesting) - apply by date TBA. Will be finalised next month, but module should be some time in October, 2017
For FAQs see the CEED site. Questions such as this are addressed there.
Feedback on CEED Modules
We'd like to assist Law staff with selection of CEED modules by hearing about your experiences. Have you completed a CEED module that you would recommend to others? Is there a topic that you'd like covered that doesn't already exist? Let us know so that we can keep everyone informed about options and forward suggestions for new modules to the CEED office, or you could simply complete this Google Form. Remember that Google Forms can only be accessed when you are logged into your mymonash account. They will be blocked if you are logged into an alternate Google account, e.g. personal Gmail.
Please note that the coordination and implementation of CEED modules, is done through Caulfield's CEED Office and is not part of the Law Faculty. Responses received are confidential and will not be forwarded to CEED.
Everything you (n)ever wanted to know about CEED Express Modules
What are Express Modules
You know that you need to complete three CEED professional development modules each year, but did you know that one of these can be an Express Module? Basically, to complete the Express Module, called Capture your learning and engagement, you provide a 200 word report about learning activities you have undertaken that are NOT part of the CEED program.
Can I count any professional development activity or event as an Express Module?
No, but it's easy to find out if what you have in mind does qualify by completing a quick Application Form. To give you an idea of the types of activities that can be considered, have a look at the list below:
- leadership or involvement in Faculty Learning and Teaching seminars
- presenting, organising, convening or participating in a learning and teaching workshop
- participating at learning and teaching conferences, forums or workshops
- building learning and teaching communities in and outside Monash relationships and networks
- publications in the field of learning and teaching
- review and accreditation of courses at other institutions
- active contribution to professional education committee
That's really about all there is to it.
What is Office Mix?
Office Mix is a free extension to PowerPoint that makes it easy to turn your PowerPoint presentations into interactive online lessons and share them with your students and colleagues in OneNote, on the web, or in your learning management system. With Office Mix, you can add:
- Audio and video narration
- Real-time digital inking
- Screen recordings that show actions you take on your computer
- Quizzes and polls
- Simulations, videos, and live web pages
… all from within PowerPoint. Publishing a mix is as easy as uploading it to the web and deciding who can view it. The people you share it with can view your mix in any web browser on any device. Office Mix shows you data about who watched your mix, how much time they spent on each slide, and how they answered your quiz and poll questions. You can even export that data to Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
How can teachers use Office Mix?
You already use PowerPoint in your lectures. But how do you…
- Make yourself available when students need to listen to your lessons more than once?
- Accommodate students who learn at different rates?
- Check the comprehension of each student in the class, not just the most vocal ones?
- Create video-based lessons without a lot of knowledge about video production and technology?
With Office Mix, creating a lesson is as easy as adding a handful of interactive elements to your PowerPoint presentation and publishing it to the secure Microsoft cloud. You can create interactive lessons that:
- Can be watched one time or as many times as a student needs to.
- Can be watched, sped up or slowed down, from the beginning or from any slide.
- Contain quizzes that check student comprehension.
- Contain audio and video using your webcam and built-in microphone or any other audio-visual peripherals attached to your PC running PowerPoint 2013 or higher.
- Show you speaking directly to students.
- Show ink being drawn on key parts of your slide to focus your students' attention.
- Include screen recordings of other applications running on Windows.
