Fast e-learning switch

This series of 5 minute videos is to support teachers with the (fast) switch to e-learning due to the pandemic. The ideas in the videos are based on principles of ‘good pedagogy’ such as: the pedagogy of care, assessment as learning, feedback for learning, inclusivity.

In this introduction I discuss the purpose of the videos, how I selected the ideas for the videos and how I made them.  There’s a gem towards the end regarding ‘making notes’…

Many teachers feel lost in the fast e-learning switch. A few key reminders of priorities at this time are discussed.

This must be the most important aspect of our practice during the pandemic and even after. How can we model and promote the pedagogy of care?

E-learning is probably new for you and for your students. We need to think about practical ways to set our students up for the ‘new normal’. I recommend to ‘fix your own mask first’, to aim for low tech (initially) and to be mindful of study times and place(s).

I talk about synchronous vs asynchronous balance. Then I talk about a few tools for videoconferencing and collaboration.

Don’t worry about having to up your capabilities at the beginning of the switch to e-learning. When you are ready, sort out the ‘why’ (your purpose) and the ‘how’ (tools) will follow!

Good pedagogy is what matters, not the tools. This video will help you focus on some basics such as: keep it simple, build community, check your intended learning outcomes and flip it.

There’s too much to say about assessment in five minutes, of course. But here are a few ideas. The main points I touch on: – check feasibility – co-create with students if possible – assessment as learning – ‘making’ outputs – briefing and using exemplars – use of drafts

The main idea here is: design plagiarism out…

Each Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) has different affordances. However, these general principles can be applied to most VLEs: keep it simple, have a welcome page, organise the course materials, have a student support section, set up student forums and invite feedback.

It is very important we have support systems in place so students can develop their academic skills in e-learning. In this video I discuss what academic skills students need and ways to support their development through your institution’s internal offer as well as through VLE specific materials and peer-support.

The start of a course is a very important moment to introduce the learning and promote bonding. I discuss ideas about ice-breakers, community building, assessment briefing and reflective practice.

Working in groups is still possible in e-learning. However, before you set up group-work, check your stance (mindset) and purpose. Then think about the tools, instructions, timing and outputs of the group-work. I end the video with a suggestion for a student-centered group activity.

This video summarises what are viewed as the best feedback practices in e-learning, highlighting the why, what, when, who and how.
