  8. Research on Learning / Implications for Assignments Mary-Ann Winkelmes Campus Coordinator for Programs on Teaching & Learning 12/9/11

  9. Most effective modes of transparencyfor highest future learning benefits • explicitly connecting data about how people learn with course activities at difficult transition points (p < .001) • assignments' learning goals and design rationale are identified and discussed before students begin each assignment (p < .001) • in-class debriefing discussions about graded tests and assignments (p < .010) • grading practices and criteria defined and discussed, with opportunities for students to apply them (p < .029) One-way ANOVA followed by Games-Howell multiple comparisons test Mary-Ann Winkelmes Campus Coordinator for Programs on Teaching & Learning 12/9/11

  10. Ongoing Transparency Research Variables: • Discipline • Course level • Previous educational experience • Self-declared ethnicity • Self-declared major • Which “modes” benefit which learning goals www.teachingandlearning.illinois.edu “Research” Mary-Ann Winkelmes Campus Coordinator for Programs on Teaching & Learning 12/9/11

  11. Sample Assignments • What implications from research are incorporated? • What additional good ideas do you see? • What change(s) might you recommend? Mary-Ann Winkelmes Campus Coordinator for Programs on Teaching & Learning 12/9/11

  12. Peer Learning Exercise • 6 minutes • Groups of 3 from different disciplines / departments • One person describes “A” final project • Partners ID and break down skills • List skills in sequence Mary-Ann Winkelmes Campus Coordinator for Programs on Teaching & Learning 12/9/11
