Brief: This session will explore the notion of subject ‘signposting’ (i.e. providing direction for students) via a dynamic landing page within subjects at CSU.

Context: A subject’s landing page (home) represents a unique opportunity to continually engage with students in an otherwise potentially isolated learning experience. In terms of Teacher Presence, there is genuine potential for both personalising the learning and teaching environment and providing transparency in terms of expectations of students. We will look at a number of in-practice examples of dynamic landing pages used at CSU and the experiences of the practitioners associated with them.

Brief: This workshop will explore ways of using the subject site analytics tools available in i2 at the end each session, to inform reflective practice and planning for subsequent session.

Context: Reflective practice using educational information from your subject site can facilitate continuous improvement at the subject level. We will look at the existing tools available within Interact 2 and how they can easily be applied for informed teaching practice at CSU.

Presented by: Ged Bourke (LOU) & Stewart McKinney (ALTS)

Brief: FlipGrid – a Social Learning tool that will liven up student learning using collaborative video.

Context: FlipGrid is a simple and effective tool for creating online asynchronous engagement, developing a Community of Practice between students WITHOUT the need for group work. This workshop will show staff how to use the tool, the type of strategies that have worked well engaging CSU students so far, and how to link to FlipGrid from your i2 subject site.

Presented by: Alissa Brabin & Ged Bourke

When: Thursday, October 11th 2018 (2:00pm – 2:45pm)

Brief: This workshop will explore the OLM Element ‘Interaction with the Professions’  (IWP) and examples of successful implementation within subjects at CSU (i.e. thinking beyond ‘work placement’).

Context: The Online Learning Model evaluation found that students value connection with professional contexts vary highly, whereas many teaching staff are grappling with how to  make IWP relevant to their teaching. Connecting students with professionals and sites of professional practice can provide a valuable context for engagement with subject content and make clearer the relevance of the subject learning outcomes by connecting theory to practice.

Presented by: Alissa Brabin & Lachlan Kalache

When: Thursday, October 11th 2018 (10:00am – 10:45am)

Where: https://connect.csu.edu.au/csu_olm

 

Brief: This session will explore notions of (online) Teacher Presence and a number of practical approaches to planning and implementing Teacher Presence.

Context: Teacher Presence has been shown through both literature and research and the lived experience of the OLM implementation at CSU as one of the most meaningful and impactful aspects of teaching and learning for students. In this session we will discuss notions of teacher presence in the online teaching and learning environment and outline some practical ways to both plan for and effectively implement a teacher presence that suits the needs of both teachers and students.

Presented by: Ged Bourke & Lachlan Kalache

When: Thursday, September 27th (10:00am – 10:45am)

Where: https://connect.csu.edu.au/csu_olm

Collaborating with fellow students can be a daunting task creating apprehension and resistance.  Research tells us that learning communities benefit students’ overall learning so this session aims to discuss various approaches to engaging the student in a collaborative community that will enhance their learning experience.

Brief: This presentation will explore staff and student experiences with the CSU Online Learning Model and discuss next steps for the framework

The online context is one of a number of spaces in which formal  learning and teaching occurs. When teaching is co-located in both online and face to face environments across multiple cohorts and subjects, there are increasing pressures to perform and it can be difficult to actively engage students in the online space. Concurrently, online learners have competing demands and report feeling isolated, struggle to manage their time,  and subsequently withdraw from study. The Online Learning Model (OLM) was designed as a result of these pressures, with a view towards facilitating  the engagement of both staff and students in this space. Staff and student perceptions of and experience with the model across 116 subjects/8courses/1766 survey responses and 19 student interviews  is presented in this session, alongside implications to consider for future practice.
