Have you received low scores on: “The learning activities in this subject created opportunities for me to learn from my peers” SES item? This workshop is for you! The workshop will focus on the importance and pedagogy behind peer to peer learning.
Dr Prue Gonzalez from the Faculty of Science and academic staff from BJBS will present various tools that can help with the creation of purposeful peer to peer interactions in your subjects. The workshop will showcase tools such as peer instruction, padlet, breakout rooms in Zoom, Google sites and Google slides. Attendees will get to experience first-hand what has worked and what has not worked and how to move forward in an online world.
Stream 4 | Thinking differently about assessment
Have you thought about including more diverse and exciting forms of assessment items in your subjects but have not been sure where to start? Would you like to hear from colleagues on what has and hasn’t worked for them?
This workshop will explore innovative approaches we can use in our subjects to assess students’ knowledge and skills. It will include specific sessions where academics and DLT staff will discuss varied assessment formats that have been used across the faculty – to both good effect and not so. As well as innovative types of assessment, we will look at who does the assessing (self/peer/industry/academic) as well as the importance of academic integrity. And there will be plenty of room for discussion and exploration of ideas.
Stream 5 | Being a digital scholar (of learning and teaching)
The Scholarship@CSU report focuses on supporting staff to engage in scholarship that informs what (content) they teach and (how) they teach it. This workshop series, introduced by Jude Gullifer who is leading the Scholarship@CSU project, explores the ‘how’ part of this statement.
All participants will begin with an orientation ‘studio’ on digital scholarship in learning and teaching, followed by a foundation studio in one of three focus areas: reflection, networking and digital identity. We’ll finish by harvesting lessons learned and next steps. Participants will also have access to a series of smaller challenge studios which they can work on independently after the workshop to suit their interests and needs. Read more about what each individual studio will involve.
Stream 6 | Enhancing your learning resources
Presented by both professional staff (DLT) and teaching practitioners from BJBS, this session consists of a series of practical workshops for instructors, focusing on available L&T technologies for CSU staff. Attendees will be provided with the context, skilling and application detail to engage in discussion around each set of tools, in order to make informed choices about their own subject delivery moving forward. Specifically, the session will look at the following modalities:
- Video Resource Creation (Panopto)
- Podcast Creation (Anchor.fm)
- Interactive Learning Object Creation (H5P suite)
Participants will be provided with additional support materials, cheat sheets and next steps for their own exploration in future teaching sessions.
