About | Learning Emergence - 0 views

    We decided on the name Learning Emergence because we are very much learning about emergence and complex systems phenomena ourselves, even as we develop our thinking on learning as an emergent, systemic phenomenon in different contexts.

    We must shift to a new paradigm for learning in schools, universities and the workplace which addresses the challenges of the 21st Century. Society needs learners who can cope with intellectual, ethical and emotional complexity of an unprecedented nature.

    Learning Emergence partners share an overarching focus on deep, systemic learning and leadership - the pro-active engagement of learners and leaders in their own authentic learning journey, in the context of relationship and community. We work at the intersection of (1) deep learning and sensemaking, (2) leadership, (3) complex systems, and (4) technology:

    Australasian Survey of Student Engagement (AUSSE)
    Areas measured by the AUSSE
    The survey instruments used in the AUSSE collect information on around 100 specific learning activities and conditions along with information on individual demographics and educational contexts.The instruments contain items that map onto six student engagement scales:

    Academic Challenge - the extent to which expectations and assessments challenge students to learn;
    Active Learning - students' efforts to actively construct knowledge;
    Student and Staff Interactions - the level and nature of students' contact and interaction with teaching staff;
    Enriching Educational Experiences - students' participation in broadening educational activities;
    Supportive Learning Environment - students' feelings of support within the university community; and
    Work Integrated Learning - integration of employment-focused work experiences into study.
    The instruments also contain items that map onto seven outcome measures. Average overall grade is captured in a single item, and the other six are composite measures which reflect responses to several items:

    Higher-Order Thinking - participation in higher-order forms of thinking;
    General Learning Outcomes - development of general competencies;
    General Development Outcomes - development of general forms of individual and social development;
    Career Readiness - preparation for participation in the professional workforce;
    Average Overall Grade - average overall grade so far in course;
    Departure Intention - non-graduating students' intentions on not returning to study in the following year; and
    Overall Satisfaction - students' overall satisfaction with their educational experience.

    National Survey of Student Engagement
    What is student engagement?
    Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality. The first is the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities. The second is how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to get students to participate in activities that decades of research studies show are linked to student learning.

    What does NSSE do?
    Through its student survey, The College Student Report, NSSE annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college.

    NSSE provides participating institutions a variety of reports that compare their students' responses with those of students at self-selected groups of comparison institutions. Comparisons are available for individual survey questions and the five NSSE Benchmarks of Effective Educational Practice. Each November, NSSE also publishes its Annual Results, which reports topical research and trends in student engagement results. NSSE researchers also present and publish research findings throughout the year.
