The process started with feedback on sites in the old VLE. Important in this was students’ desire for a standard look-and-feel and structure, which fed into our design of templates for Canvas module sites. As we approached Canvas implementation, we ran workshops with students to find out how they would be likely to use sites and how frequently they used features in the old VLE. This was followed by further consultation once Canvas was live, which in turn will inform future developments. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9533 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:38:21 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9533 Building a Pedagogic Research Community Dr Simon Pratt-Adams and Mark Warnes A key element in the enhancement of the student experience is to develop and maintain teaching excellence. To this end, since 2016/17, ARU has been building a pedagogic research community. It is supported by a website and online directory, informal monthly seminars across campuses, and writing retreats. The intention is to continue capacity building over the coming years to build funding opportunities, cross-disciplinary networks, shared facilities and resources. Furthermore, the success of the community has directly resulted in the creation of the new Centre for Innovation in Higher Education. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9532 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:32:54 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9532 The ‘e-factor’: Anglia Ruskin Business School Intern Programme Donna Franklin Anglia Ruskin Business School established an intern programme in 2014. It is built on three cornerstones: a personal mentor, a ‘vital skills’ training package, and work experience opportunities which facilitate students working as collaborators. The aim is to give our students the best possible opportunity to raise awareness of, and develop their skill-set and knowledge of employability…and build their own ‘e-factor’ in a safe and supportive community environment! This presentation will showcase the value and impact of the intern programme and invite discussion around how we can future-proof our students for known (and unknown) future work/life challenges. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9531 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:31:43 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9531 Tracking International Student Success Rebecca Rowntree and Jason Jerome International students play an essential role in our university. Some embrace the experience and thrive in a new academic climate, but a significant minority struggle and don’t fulfil their potential due to a number of different reasons. This study uses both qualitative and quantitative data to track the success of international students and offers some conclusions and advice on how to improve their experience, both in the classroom and also the wider context of the university. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9530 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:30:07 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9530 How Critical Reflection develops in an Online Distance Learning Community of Sports Coaching Students Dr Anna Stodter and Ed Cope Research with sports coaching practitioners suggests that ‘reflective conversations’ play a key role in learning from experience, with context an important moderating factor. This project aims to implement theory-led ‘reflective conversations’ between student coaches and a tutor throughout an online distance learning module, and evaluate how reflective skill development can be initiated, supported and sustained. Thirteen reflective conversations were recorded to ‘track’ learning processes across the module. Students reported a positive experience regarding the delivery format. Processes involved in learning will be discussed with the aim of enhancing future evidence-based provision and learning gain. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9529 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:28:40 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9529 Authentic and Industry-Focused Delivery and Assessment in a Blended Learning Environment Dr Helen Marshall, Professor Eugene Giddens and John Walsh Research argues that authentic assessments focus on students using and applying knowledge and skills in scenarios relating to the real world. The project seeks fluid mechanisms to integrate contributions from industry experts through distance and blended learning. Helen, Eugene and John have worked with industry experts in publishing and creative writing to produce a number of 15 minute videos to be integrated into the digital delivery of the modules. This presentation will report on our key findings on both the preparation of these videos and their integration into Canvas. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9528 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 12:26:35 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9528 Adobe Actually Vix Samways and Chris Herbert Vix and Chris discuss the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite offering at ARU: from the applications all students and staff have available on their desktops and in open access spaces, to the specialist systems that support teaching. This session will guide you through accessing many of these applications through the Adobe Creative Cloud Work from Home offering, and where to get the best training and development. There are new apps and services to explore, as well as an outline of some of the widely used systems Adobe has to offer from Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator to the new Adobe XD and the lighter phone applications. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9527 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:53:29 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9527 Improving Retention and Performance through Extended and Holistic ‘Educational Experience’ Approach to Induction Natalie Kite and Nicola Faulkner The HEA’s ‘What works?’ retention project identified that induction impacts retention and success in three ways: a) socialisation, b) developing confidence and academic skills and c) developing relationships with staff, so students are more comfortable to approach them later (Thomas, 2012). Natalie and Nicola's aim was to look at existing induction activities and support offered to new students in the Business School and to see how it can be developed further. They collaborated with Student Services, ARU colleagues, and current students on three specific activities that they piloted during their extended Welcome induction in January 2018. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9526 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:15:11 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9526 Developing an Employability Tracker Sarah Etchells and Dr Sebastian Rasinger This project aimed to develop an Employability Tracker, which would allow students to track their employability activities throughout their course. It was to be linked to the Personal Tutor system, in an attempt to enhance both systems and make them more purposeful. The tracker was to be based on a modified version of the Researcher Development Skills Diagnostic matrix used by ARU PGR students, which allows mapping of key skills and knowledge at different stages, and integrates an action plan allowing students to improve and enhance their skills. Unfortunately, the project was unsuccessful and, in this session, we explore the reasons why. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9525 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:13:32 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9525 Taking a Soft Approach to Hard Dissertations Paul Fynn Dissertation processes are as much about students learning as their assessment. In encouraging student independence supervisors risk overlooking students’ legitimate needs for support with processes and practice. Rather than being a hard problem, the author argues that dissertations represent soft problems – neither student nor tutor can fully anticipate what the problem is, or what the solution might look like. Checkland’s Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) offers a range of conceptual devices to help shape agreement. This session explores how tools from SSM can support and guide the required processes of divergence and convergence, to increase student autonomy and heighten success. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9524 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:11:56 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9524 Education strategy workshop and closing address Professor Aletta Norval https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9523 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:10:28 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9523 Developing Reflective Pedagogical Practice with 360-Degree Video Dr Nicola Walshe This session will explore how the use of 360-degree video supports reflective pedagogical practice. Nicola will begin by presenting findings from research undertaken with education students in which they reflected on their practice whilst watching 360-degree video recordings through a VR headset. Results suggest that the immersive experience of reflecting using 360-degree video becomes an intermediary to real-life classroom settings, supporting students to produce reflections which show a better appreciation of pupil engagement and learning. Nicola will suggest that 360-degree video has significant potential to transform the way we reflect and go on to explore implications for practice in HE. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9522 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:08:42 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9522 Evaluating the Effectiveness of Designing a Novel Active Learning Curriculum Aimed at Improving Student Engagement and Retention in Foundation Year Cohorts Nicky Milner The need to improve student engagement is an important issue in higher education. Reasons for poor student engagement are not fully understood and often rely on anecdotal evidence, such as poor attendance. Understanding the learning and attendance behaviour of students helps to create a stimulating learning environment where students want to become actively involved in learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom. The aim of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of a implementing a novel active learning curriculum, which includes Team-Based Learning and personalised learning logs, on improving engagement in foundation year student cohorts. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9521 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:07:12 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9521 Course Design Challenge (Course Leader Conference 2018) Keynote speaker: Dr Graham Holden https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9520 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:05:46 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9520 ARU+ Transforming the Lives of Learners Dr George Evangelinos The ARU+ project aims to explore the implications of establishing a design approach in documenting the interactions of learners with the various ‘learning opportunities’ offered by the institution in terms of the formal curriculum and co-curriculum. Establishing a systematic approach in designing, delivering, assessing and accrediting these learning opportunities could significantly enhance the student experience of an ARU graduate. This added value can be realised by defining a broader set of criteria in a variety of developmental dimensions and accrediting learner engagement and attainment. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9519 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:04:09 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9519 Developing an ePortfolio for Degree Apprenticeships Tom Taylor and Glen Campey Degree Apprenticeships typically contain elements that are outside a “normal” degree course – for example the requirement to demonstrate progress towards the knowledge, skills and behaviours expected in the apprentice’s profession, or the expectation of a three-way partnership between the university, apprentice and employer. Some of these elements can be delivered via an ePortfolio. This session explores how the LDS Distance Learning team have used MyShowcase to develop an ePortfolio for apprentices. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9518 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:02:31 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9518 How do I Compare Thee? An evidence-based approach to the presentation of class comparison information to students using Dashboard Dr Annelie Harvey and Dr Helen Keyes The student engagement Dashboard tool allows students to compare their level of engagement with the course average. Conflicting research suggests that upward social comparisons (i.e. a comparison with someone performing better) either has positive (i.e. inspirational) or harmful effects (i.e. decreased academic self-competence) on students. In our ALT- funded project, we asked ARU students to imagine a fictional Dashboard display that was a reflection of their own engagement and report their predicted grade. Students were either presented with data showing they were performing above, below or the same as the course average. We measured students’ self-esteem and their motivation to engage. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9517 Wed, 26 Sep 2018 11:00:36 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9517 Keynote – Reimagining Higher Education in the digital age Professor Neil Morris, University of Leeds Neil will discuss some of the major changes impacting on Higher Education as a result of digital technology, including unbundling, blended learning, flipped learning, changing use of learning spaces and mobile learning. He will draw on evidence from the literature and from work at the University of Leeds and across the sector. https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9430 Thu, 06 Sep 2018 14:42:43 GMT https://myplayer.anglia.ac.uk/Play/9430 Meeting the educational expectations of students, employers and government – how can we balance the many demands?
