Web Design Applications: Student Orientated Learning for Online
  • Scope of Presentation
  • Context of Web Design Applications
  • Teaching Strategies / Techniques
  • Feedback
  • What’s next?
  • Q&A
context of web design applications
Context of Web Design Applications
  • Students completed Intro to Web Design & Computer Graphics (core unit with software focus)
  • WDA: appreciation of web design, content development, interactive media skills
  • 1 hr lecture & 3 hour tutorials (16 hours p wk)
  • 110 students
  • Computer labs equipped with Macromedia package, etc
challenges faced
Challenges faced :
  • Teaching Mass Comm students (intelligent, vocal, active, some hate PCs, esp female students)
  • Media savvy
  • Have to challenge them since they are net-crazy (blog users, heavy surfers with good home PC Setups)
  • Sometimes better than NP labs
organising your tutorials
Organising your tutorials
  • Tutorial organisation:
  • Checklist and time sheets
  • Multi-modular approach (variety)
  • Journal Reflection (on-going assessment)
  • Individual assignment feedback
  • Self-driven (software) learning at individual pace
web based learning
Web-based learning
  • WDA website components: www.np.edu.sg/~knh/wda
  • Lectures, Tutorials, Assessment, Announcements
  • Resources (lecturer and student recommended websites)
encouraging creativity
Encouraging Creativity
  • Assessment for unit:
  • Journeys Assignment (web based project which brings user on a journey)
  • Reflective Journal (encourage student thinking)
  • Online Publications (create a living publication around any topic or idea)
encouraging creativity peer learning
Encouraging Creativity & Peer Learning
  • Peer tutoring (synthesis of learning)
  • Field Trip (Visit to Singapore Art Museum to critique Nokia CyberArt Exhibition)
  • Student-Teacher Developed Peer Assessment (Show points & final assessment criteria)
  • Note-taking by students (from the white board) – satisfies their “Something on paper desire”
reflective journals
Reflective Journals
  • Reflective journal (purpose):
  • a)lessons learnt during Web Design classes
  • b)reflections and thoughts by student within Mass Comm, and in their personal lives,
  • c) Documentation of the students’ assignments, and projects and evolution of ideas through the module.
  • Show examples of responses
sample of journal responses open letter
Sample of Journal Responses (open letter)

Dear Nisar (positive comments):

“A lot of teachers say that they would like to learn from us, but a lot of them don’t mean it, so I really appreciated it when you showed the Anna Sui (Ed: my contribution) website” – Germaine

“I just want you to know that there are people who appreciate the things you do. I can see you are putting in a lot of effort into this module.” – Mong Xin

“WDA has been enriching. Who can forget when you sit beside us and prompt us till we get solutions? I WON’T” – David Pillai

sample of journal responses ii open letter
Sample of Journal Responses ii (open letter)

Dear Nisar (positive comments):

“Its incredible how a lecturer can make a technically-inclined module interesting ... I am surprised by how my learning has been made effective by the way you teach and to me that was interesting” – Benedict David

“ps: i'm still wonderin how a person like me (yes I failed web graphics and design in year 1), can have his work requested to be published online by a lecturer ... *shakes head dumbfoundedly*. And i really used to hate web design i tell ya.. .” – Benedict

Sample of Journal Responses iii (open letter)

Dear Nisar (positive comments):

“I'd just like to say i really enjoyed your lessons and that you have contributed, in the most colossal of ways, to my newfound interest and skills in web or anything technical. I can actually turn on the computer without first conducting a blessing ceremony. (",)

I maintain that Dreamweaver rocks....

"Like sands through the hour glass, so are the Days Of 2T10...“ – Vanessa Yeo (show peer evaluation)

sample of journal responses iv open letter
Sample of Journal Responses iv (open letter)

Dear Nisar (negative comments):

“Maybe you can try using more creative approaches to teach. More activities to stimulate interests and motivate …

Not many people like web stuff – I just don’t have the interest and talent. Maybe 5 years or even one year down the road, I will forget all I have learnt. But at least I can boast I’ve set up websites before …” – Michelle Tan

sample of journal responses v open letter
Sample of Journal Responses v (open letter)

Dear Nisar (negative comments):

“I guess not everyone will be able to adapt to the way you teach each student as in I can’t learn anything if you keep shooting me back with questions, everytime I ask you one”

“You cant just stick to one kind of teaching method, because everyone is different, they are not standardised yeah.”

- Alen Seow

Sample of Journal Responses vi (open letter)

Dear Nisar (negative comments):

“Sometimes you are rather impatient and expect as if all students know everything. That is when I feel intimidated about WDA seeing some web savvy students know their way around. Somehow there are those who refuse to help.

- Fairuz Shariff
