Keynote – Designs for Active Learning – Active Learning Conference
Professor Mike Sharples, The Open University
Active learning can increase engagement, retention and performance, but is difficult to achieve online. Learning platforms have been criticised for promoting passive learning from watching videos and reading texts. Professor Sharples discusses designs for active learning with examples from flexible learning rooms, the FutureLearn platform and nQuire-it, a platform for inquiry-based science learning. These have been developed through processes of pedagogy-led design to support learning through conversation, collaboration, peer review, field work and inquiry. The keynote describes successes with these platforms, and issues including learner attitudes, sustained motivation and facilitation. We’re now exploring how hybrid courses, formative analytics, reputation management, and dynamic assessment can offer new forms of active learning for campus students in ‘flipped classroom’ mode alongside open access learners.
