iPads in the Classroom - 5 views

    This is a compendium of several threads related to iPads used primarily in college classrooms: how iPads are used effectively by students, how iPads/apps affect student learning (if it can be said), and how faculty are using iPads, whether they see a benefit, how their use has changed their teaching, are there different activities they do.

Administrators' Views on Factors Influencing Full-Time Faculty Members' Participation i... - 3 views

    Lesht and Windes explored, through a survey administered at five universities/colleges in Illinois, the factors that motivate and deter faculty to participate in online teaching. The first motivating factor was survival. Many colleges find that if they are going to survive in today's economy, they need to institute online classes and faculty at the colleges find they need to teach them as part of their course load. Another factor is that students are demanding online and hybrid classes in order to meet their needs and faculty need to adjust to this demand to retain students. Other factors identified included stipends that are often added for teaching online, flexibility for the faculty, seeing peers that are enjoying/successful at teaching online and improvements in technology. Pedagogical factors that deter faculty from teaching online include the amount of time required to convert a class to online and uneasiness with technology. Perceptions that still remain also deterred faculty from teaching online classes. These include the perception that online classes are inferior to face-to-face classes and that online classes are not a "good fit" for the college. The final area that deters faculty is support. The needed technology support is not always available and this causes frustration for the faculty. Finally, the authors explored "disruptive innovation theory" as a factor that encourages faculty to teach online. These factors include things like the current economic environment, enrollment declines and the need for students to work while attending college. The authors concluded flexibility is the key to attracting and retaining students and faculty recognize this as important and therefore want to teach online to meet their students' needs.

A Good Conversation about Teaching and Learning | Faculty Focus - 2 views

  • Good conversations among educated folks are well informed. It’s not about sharing opinions with no evidence behind them, misinformation, myths or urban legends.
  • What we believe we have learned from experience must be verified with an infusion of ideas and information from outside
  • And provocative we should be about teaching and learning because so many of the assumptions behind what we do have not been examined
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Good conversations make us think
  • good conversations about teaching cause us to act
  • We don’t just listen, we don’t just respond, we do
