  1. Using Your Moodle Los Angeles Virtual Academy May 18, 2006 Best Practices in eLearning

  2. Distance Education Evangelist I’ve been an • Online student • Online teacher • Online faculty mentor I’ve been Moodling for the last 4 years I cannot teach anyone anything. I can only make them think. ~ Socrates Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 2

  3. What is YOUR online teaching experience? • First time online teacher (newbie) B) One to two years (intermediate) C) More than two years (experienced) Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 3

  4. What do YOU think? What are the elements of a good online class? What sets an excellent class apart from the rest? Use the whiteboard tool to brainstorm some ideas. Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 4

  5. Best Practices • Lots of research in this area • Chickering and Gamson (1987) • Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 5

  6. Seven Principles Good Practice: • Encourages Student-Faculty Contact • Encourages Cooperation Among Students • Encourages Active Learning • Gives Prompt Feedback • Emphasizes Time on Task • Communicates High Expectations • Respects Diverse Talents and Ways of Learning Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 6

  7. Question Do you think these principles can apply to K12 Education as well? Yes / No Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 7

  8. Student-Faculty Contact Frequent student-faculty contact in and out of classes is the most important factor in student motivation and involvement. (p. 1.) • Discussion Forums • Private Messages • Online Text Assignments (Journals) • Profiles – Personalization Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 8 [back - last]

  9. Cooperation Among Students Working with others often increases involvement in learning. Sharing one's own ideas and responding to others' reactions sharpens thinking and deepens understanding. ( pp. 6f.) • Online Users • Groups • Workshops • Forums • Private Messages Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 9 [back - last]

  10. Active Learning Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just sitting in classes listening to teachers, memorizing pre- packaged assignments, and spitting out answers. (pp. 7.) • Groups • Glossary • Discussion Forums • Wiki • Students as Teachers Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 10 [back - last]

  11. Prompt Feedback Knowing what you know and don't know focuses learning. Students need appropriate and frequent feedback on performance to benefit from courses. (p. 8.) • Assignments • Gradebook • Peer Reviews • Help Desk Forums Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 11 [back - last]

  12. Emphasizes Time on Task Time plus energy equals learning. There is no substitute for time on task. Learning to use one's time well is critical for students and professionals alike. (p. 2.) • Participant’s List • Activity Reports • Allows instructor to easily follow up with students who are falling behind Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 12 [back - last]

  13. Communicates High Expectations Expect more and you will get it.... Expecting students to perform well becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy when teachers and institutions hold high expectations of themselves and make extra efforts. (p. 2.) • Set expectations in the syllabus • Active learning = responsible learners • Rating System (forums, glossary) • Group accountability (journal reviews) Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 13 [back - last]

  14. Respects Diverse Talents and Ways of Learning There are many roads to learning. People bring different talents and styles of learning to college.... Students need the opportunity to show their talents and learn in ways that work for them. Then they can be pushed to learn new ways that do not come so easily. (pp. 2f) • Multimedia integration • Podcasting • Blogging • Video Debby Kilburn http://www.collegeteacher.org 14 [back - last]
