Flexible learning versus classroom lecture : a content analysis of undergraduate nursin... - 0 views

  •  
    "Background: The ongoing difficulty that nursing educators face is managing finite class time and limited instructor-student interactions to achieve balance between discourse and active learning. To complicate this predicament, technology has infiltrated all aspects of daily life demanding that education must also meet the growing expectation of students to incorporate technology into curriculum. One approach that addresses this need is the flipped classroom (FC) format, which remains operationally ill-defined and the understanding of its effects on higher-level thinking are still nascent. Aim: The purpose of this study is to explore the differences in learning between the FC format compared to the traditional classroom lecture (TL) in the context of an undergraduate nursing course. Methods: A content analysis was performed on a previous study conducted in 2015. Concept maps were used to evaluate data from transcripts of undergraduate nursing students discussing a case scenario in either a TL or FC format. Results: When comparing FC and TL groups, FC groups had a more complex concept map morphology and greater amount of identified subcategories and links. The FC groups exhibited more higher order thinking concepts compared to the TL cohort. An unexpected finding was the emergence of discussion tangents across both the FC groups and the TL cohort. Conclusion: Flipped classrooms have a place in the gamut of pedagogical approaches and this study demonstrates that the FC approach enhances student learning and aids in the development of higher-level thinking.

    "In this article, we posit that the rise of broad cultural interest in edtech is a sociocultural and ideological phenomenon. In particular, we assert that edtech

    is a response to the increasing price of higher education;
    represents a shift in political thought from government oversight to free-market oversight of education;
    is symptomatic of the belief that education, like training, is a product to be packaged, automated, and delivered; and
    is symptomatic of the technocentric belief that technology is a solution to the perils facing education."

    "Findings to the first research question revealed that instructors demonstrated (a) statistically significant change in the incorporation of elements into the redesign of their syllabi, and (b) improvements in their teaching abilities as self-reported in the follow-up survey. However, there were no significant changes in their student evaluations of teaching pre-and post. Overall, then, instructors demonstrated modest improvements to their overall teaching effectiveness. Findings to the second research question revealed that, prior to training, instructors were highly optimistic about their course redesign plans and the skills and knowledge they would develop. After delivering their redesigned course online, participants were less optimistic and satisfied with their training experience than they had been immediately following it, and multiple instructors cited a need for additional or continued training and support."

Social Media for Learning and Teaching Undergraduate Sciences: Good Practice Guidelines... - 2 views

    Experiment set up advanced students to do six problem-solving simulations as set groups in Facebook. Groups set up and case scenarios posted by faculty. All students had to sign documents that it was OK to use Facebook, and university was on board.

    Abstract: "In 2013, Facebook was used in learning and teaching clinical problem solving in a Pathology and a Clinical Sciences course delivered at a South Australian university. It involved first- and second-year Medical Radiation students and second-year Nursing students, Of the 152 students enrolled in the Pathology course, there were 148 students who participated in the Facebook group. Of the 148 students, 61 (41%) completed the invited post-intervention questionnaire. At the same time, all 17 nursing students enrolled in a science course at the regional campus of the same university participated in the Facebook initiative, however, only 10 (59%) completed the post-intervention questionnaire. A good practice and checklist were developed from the post-intervention evaluations, which consisted of 25 Likert- and open-type questions. Both student cohorts found the use of Facebook beneficial for them in terms of providing an innovative way of learning; fostering greater interaction amongst co-students and staff; and effectively engaging them with the content of courses. The importance of clear communication of goals and objectives to students was identified from student comments. Six good practice principles were identified relating to: goals and objectives, expectations, communication, engagement with the course content, active participation, and learning environment."

    "Moreover, it increased students' interest in the subject (66%; 100%), provided opportunities for greater interaction with the lecturer (97%; 100%), facilitated learning with peers (92%; 100%), learning from peers (95%; 90%), and working with others (87%; 100%). Furthermore, while the graded group activity was concluded the Facebook group and Facebook

    This was a pretty interest read. I applied for a job back in 2010 where I proposed using Facebook groups to add to teaching engagement, so it was good to read a positive outcome of the experiment. Wonder if any POT-ers are willing to give it a go.
