Building Capacity in L&T

  • Where are we now? Where are we going?

  • and….what are your thoughts?

  • Plan A !

  • Leeds Building Capacity project – brief outline/update

  • LBC project website – short tour

  • Focus on a key strategic priority - effective feedback

  • Focus on some technology – play with ‘flips’

  • Feedback and discussion - collectively

  • Lunch!


  • Where are we now where are we going and what are your thoughts plan a

    Leeds Building Capacity Project

    • Part of JISC’s Building Capacity Programme:

    • £100k until July 2011

    • Mapping JISC technology projects and intelligence to Leeds strategic priorities across Research, Learning and Teaching

    • ‘Adopting’ and ‘adapting’ for the Leeds context

    • ‘Leeds Learning’: toolkits and case studies for dissemination


    Strategic l t priorities

    Strategic L&T Priorities

    2009/10

    • Digitisation/ing learning resources

    • Distributed environments for blended learning

    • Providing effective feedback to students

      2010/11

    • Curriculum review

    • Open access/resources


    Where are we now

    Where are we now?

    Guided by the LBC Project Advisory Group and in collaboration with JISC:

    • Mapping JISC projects to priorities

    • Selecting potential projects fit for Leeds

    • Communicating ‘intelligence’ to L&T communities

    • Facilitating ‘take-up’ of project outputs/outcomes

      i.e. there is funding available!

      but also.....

    • Identifying ‘gaps’ in JISC provision


    Where are we now where are we going and what are your thoughts plan a

    Communicating ‘intelligence’

    • Developing a dialogue with L&T communities

    • Creating platforms for a dialogue:

      • Faculty Pro Deans and Directors for L&T

      • Themed events e.g. Effective Feedback Week 12/10

      • LTC8 !

      • Leeds Building Capacity Project Website

    Where are we now1

    Where are we now?

    LBC project priority: Effective Feedback

    • AFAL (Aberystwyth)- comparison of 3 methods

      audio: digital recorder/MP3 posters, non-electronic work

      a/v asynchronous: headset/adobe acrobat/PDF reports/proposals

      a/v synchronous: headset/screencast/website link essays/presentations

      https://sites.google.com/site/audiofeedbackuk/home/

    • ASEL (Bradford & Hertfordshire) – audio

      choice in both assessment & feedback forms - encouraged dialogue with students

      http://aselproject.wordpress.com/

    • ASSET (Reading & Plymouth) – video

      generic, rapid feed-forward - increased student engagement http://www.reading.ac.uk/asset/


    Where are we going

    Where are we going?

    • Example of a JISC project output

      ASSET: use of audio/video e.g. FLIP camcorder

      • Demo – one prepared earlier!

      • ‘Play’ for 5 minutes: In 3s, make a short video

        Record your responses to the question:

        How might this technology be used to support feedback or feed-forward to students? Any barriers?

      • Play back

      • Feed back your responses to the group

    • Broader discussion


    Using the flip

    Using the Flip

    Switch on: press power button on RHS

    Record: press record button to start /stop

    touch+/-to zoom in/out

    Play: touch button to start/pause

    NB: ‘Built in’ microphone - so need to be near the flip

    (Delete: touch delete button select ‘yes’ to confirm)

    Q: How might this technology be used to support feedback or feed-forward to students?

    • Any barriers?


    Feedback and discussion

    Feedback and Discussion

    Possible broader questions:

    • How far are these kinds of technologies useful to enhancelearning and teaching e.g. providing feedback to students? An enhancement or additionto existing practices?

    • What other kinds of (existing) technologies might we deploy across the university ?

      e.g. Grademark/Turnitin - Rafe Hallett and Kevin Linch (History)

    • What are the possible barriers?

    • How might we best develop platforms to create an ongoing dialogue to build capacity in L&T?


    To conclude
