Why do 60% of students find their lectures boring? - 0 views

  •  
    Article in the Guardian Education about why students find lectures boring. Unsurprisingly, PowerPoint is mentioned as a factor although reading further it's the usual story of the inappropriate use of PowerPoint rather than the existance of Powerpoint itself. I went to some extremely tedious lectures during my degree...it is possible to bore with a blackboard too! I would be interested in seeing more details of the types of lecture that students actually *like*!
  •  
    Actually, it's just struck me...we have these awards where students nominate staff. We get a lot of nominations. What is it that students actually *like* about what staff are doing?

    David produced a 'tag cloud' of the words used in their nominations.

Justice: A Journey in Moral Reasoning, Michael J. Sandel - 0 views

  •  
    Program page about the Justice course at Harvard. Effectively an example of an advertisement/trailer video for a course + some details.
  •  
    I want to do the course after watching it! Large lecture hall filled with students (apparently) paying attention.

Video Clips of worked answers - 0 views

  •  
    Use of camtasia and a tablet pc to create short videos of the lecturer talking through the worked answers for a maths course, much as they would in class on a blackboard.

Flexner Report - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • The Flexner Report is a book-length study of medical education in the United States and Canada, written by the professional educator Abraham Flexner and published in 1910 under the aegis of the Carnegie Foundation. Many aspects of the present-day American medical profession stem from the Flexner Report and its aftermath.

Introducing YouTube EDU! | Open Culture - 0 views

  •  
    Combined with Academic Earth, iTunesU and other online courses (e.g. list on the Open culture site: http://www.oculture.com/2007/07/freeonlinecourses.html) it is getting easier to find good lectures/courses. I wonder how this will play out in the end - will the 'best' lectures get used by students at other universities, even formally as part of the recommended 'reading'?

    Claire and I were talking about emotion and learning (and mentioned Freud in passing) - a lecturer of mine who was involved in the setting up of Sussex University talked about the influence of Winnicott on her approach - the importance of play in HE - but that was a long time ago before everything got so serious!

    This is a long presentation - but the middle bit is an exercise which can be skipped - about the problems of sharing good practice in education - well worth watching given that a lot of what we do is that.
  •  
    At last...I found the link I was looking for. I started to watch this and got drawn into the fact that it was done with the Echo360 system that we use. It looks like a different version of the system though. I've always wondered how worthwhile video is in these cases but I found myself quite liking the video. Maybe that's because I'm a "distance learner". Perhaps video isn't as necessary for people who were at the presentation and are using this for review?
  •  
    I've watched most of it so far. I also really appreciate the video - I think the inclusion of it does help you feel more like you are part of a human group. Now, I'd also appreciate the other delivery methods echo does (e.g. ipod) for reviewing something, but it is good to have options to tailor to the individual. I also like the (new?) possibility of switching the layout so that the video is the 'larger' screen some (but not all) of the time. Mostly comments on the software, but the talk was interesting too!

    Collects videos from universities

    Have you seen the "Dim the lights" feature on the video player? How camp is that? It's the usual suspects on here...Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT...wonder if anyone outside the States is going to partner with them. It's got an interesting "Playlist" feature, which isn't your own playlist but a playlist compiled by an "editor" which can feature videos from across different institutions. Quite neat.
