Nerd Research Minute – April 30 – Data Use in Higher Ed

A survey conducted by Unit 4, a systems management company that serves higher education institutions, reported that 81% of the 150 IT decision-makers respondents said their institutions invest in technology to support student success objectives, but only 37% use data and analytics to support student outcomes.

A Key Research-based principle for instructional design:
Beaton’s five key design principles of student-centered learning

Perceived interplay between flexible learning spaces and teaching, learning and student wellbeing

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10984-017-9254-9

Abstract

In recognition of the evolving learning needs of twenty-first century school students, changes to teaching practices and the incorporation of technology are increasingly accompanied by modifications to the built classroom environment. Typically rows of desk and chairs are replaced with a range of furniture that can be configured in various ways to facilitate teaching and learning. This article explores the perceived relationship between these flexible learning spaces and teaching, learning and wellbeing outcomes. The perceptions and experiences of 12 school principals, 35 teachers and 85 students from four primary and four secondary schools in Australia were examined. Flexible learning spaces were reported to facilitate student-centred pedagogy and selfregulation, collaboration, and student autonomy and engagement. Modified spaces were reportedly more enjoyable, comfortable and inclusive and allowed greater interaction. The findings are discussed in light of Beaton’s five key design principles of student-centred learning environments to explore the connection between the physical classroom environment and teaching and learning. Self-Determination Theory is used to interpret how elements of the physical space facilitate the creation of a social environment that encourages greater motivation to learn and increases student wellbeing. The research contributes to an understanding of how flexible learning spaces are used and with what effect, thereby addressing a present gap in the literature.

Summer To-Do List ~ Join a Virtual Book Club

Summer To-Do List: Join a Virtual Book Club and/or Join the Summer Reading Clubs @ Your Library!

It’s officially summer and libraries across the country have summer reading clubs, groups, ‘fests, and promotions. Want to save a tree this summer? Go online and join a reading group. Goodreads has many, many, many engaging and welcoming reading clubs. I’ve blogged previously about the one I’m in and it is the best one!!

Do you prefer to kick it old school? Reading clubs are usually divided by age: (up to Grade 5), the Teen Reading Club (Grades 6-12), and the Adult Reading Club (Ages 18+) and by genre. There’s something for everyone this summer, and often you’ll have the chance to earn prizes for continuing to read during the summer break.

 

Don’t pass up on all of the great activities because, whatever you do, don’t be caught not being a part of our club!
