Exam Design: Promoting Integrity Through Trust and Flexibility
6 apr. 2020 - I spent a lot of time thinking about how to design my exam after a mid-semester pivot to online learning due to COVID-19. In the end, my exams this term are open book with no time limit. They have a due date but are open for a week or more. I am even open to extending it. Students can go in and out of the exam as many times as they want. I also provided them with a downloadable copy of the exam so they could work on it outside of Moodle. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and my decisions are founded in good pedagogy.

Robot Teachers, Racist Algorithms, and Disaster Pedagogy
3 sep. 2020 - I have volunteered to be a guest speaker in classes this Fall. It's really the least I can do to help teachers and students through another tough term. I spoke tonight in Dorothy Kim's class "Race Before Race: Premodern Critical Race Studies." Here's a bit of what I said...

Ook bij een ‘Hybrid Learning Theatre’ gaat het om de didactiek
3 sep. 2020 - Ik lees regelmatig enthousiaste verhalen over en reacties op de toepassing van het ‘Hybrid Learning Theatre’. Het risico daarbij is dat we ons te veel laten meeslepen door het ‘wow-effect’ dat deze toepassing oproept. Het leerzame karakter ervan wordt bepaald door de didactiek die je inzet. En dan is het de vraag of deze relatief kostbare toepassing voldoende toegevoegde waarde heeft ten opzichte van de ‘gewone’ virtual classroom.

A Framework for Designing Questions for Online Learning
9 sep. 2006 - The discussion method is one of the most commonly used pedagogical techniques inthe online classroom. Discussion is widely used because it can promote several types of thinking -and certain types of thinking especially those characterized as constructivist, are important in education. Proper attention to the design, facilitation, and maintenance of an online instructional discussion is critical to promote students' constructive thinking. Questioning is a significant instructional design element for the promotion of effective discussion. This article describes a theoretical framework for designing questions for starting online discussion and follow-up questions to maintain the discussion. This framework is placed within a broader context of discussion within a constructivist, online environment. Numerous examples of discussion questions which were gathered from experienced online instructors are presented with the goal of preparing students and teachers to participate effectively in online discussions.

Reflections on digital learning environments, part one
23 aug. 2020 - Over the summer I corresponded frequently with a colleague at another school who was intrigued by my use of a phpBB discussion forum platform for my online classes. I’ve come to rely on the discussion forums as the primary community builders and hubs for these classes. (I still use blogs and Hypothesis and often Wikipedia as well, but that’s for another post.) Along the way I thought aloud about my conceptual frameworks for these learning spaces. My frameworks seem in some respects radically different from the frameworks I see in other discussions about online learning. Perhaps they’re not so different as I think, but then again, I’ve been to enough conferences and heard enough talk about uber-LMS next-gen “learning engineered” approaches that I suspect my frameworks are indeed atypical. At any rate, some thoughts on discussion forums as learning environments.

Lessons from Stanford University's move to remote learning
30 aug. 2020 - Stanford University received responses from 6,000 of their students (response rate just under 40%) to identify the main obstacles students encountered during the spring quarter, when it moved its classes to remote learning. The article describes not only the main issues that needed to be addressed as a result of the survey responses, but the steps it has taken to mitigate these for the upcoming fall quarter (semester), since undergraduates will not be on campus in the fall. Although Stanford is not a typical university – through its endowments, it is one of the wealthiest universities in the world – there are nevertheless important lessons for the fall semester that will apply to many other higher education institutions.

The Zoom Gaze
20 aug. 2020 - I’ve been doing video conferencing pretty intently since 2016 in connection with my Virtually Connecting work. This work has been technical, social, and critical. It has compelled me to ask questions around power, voice, and visibility. As the whole world distances from one another physically in fear of a sickness which could be nothing or could be death, those who have the means use this technology as a way to simulate normality. But all of this is anything but normal.

Visibility in online meetings
22 aug. 2020 - What do you look at during all those video meetings? Many of us spend a lot of time watching ourselves and becoming very aware of what we look like on the screen. That's a major difference between physical and digital meetings; we become much more self-aware and concerned with our appearance and gestures. We are also unaware of who is watching us Since we can all choose gallery view or speaker view you never know who is watching you, even if you are not actively involved. Many people forget that they are visible and will behave in a less than focused manner. Some check out physically but are still digitally present: an empty chair, camera pointing at the ceiling etc. I imagine most of us have done this at least once. The point is that if your camera is on you should probably assume that someone is looking at you.

A systematic literature review on synchronous hybrid learning: gaps identified
28 nov. 2019 - More and more higher educational institutions invest in technology-enhanced learning spaces, which raises the question of how these environments can be shaped to be as effective as possible. A specific new learning space is the synchronous hybrid or blended learning environment in which both on-site and remote students can simultaneously attend learning activities. Given that synchronous hybrid learning is relatively new, there are few studies that have investigated its use and effectiveness. This study synthesised the best available evidence worldwide to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art of the current research regarding the benefits, challenges and current design principles to set up synchronous hybrid learning. In line with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses, we included 47 studies which were analysed to respond to our research questions. One of the main findings is that existing research suggests cautious optimism about synchronous hybrid learning which creates a more flexible, engaging learning environment compared to fully online or fully on-site instruction. Yet, this new learning space has several challenges which are both pedagogical and technological in nature. To meet these challenges, several design guidelines are formulated. A final conclusion is that most of the existing literature is exploratory and qualitative in nature and has focused mostly on descriptions of students’ experiences, the organisational implementation and the technological design. Empirical studies have only begun to emerge and more research is needed into different pedagogical scenarios and their impact on student outcomes.

Hybrid Virtual Classroom: Synchroon fysiek en online onderwijs in één
12 aug. 2020 - De afgelopen weken/maanden hebben onderwijsinstellingen zich voorbereid op het onderwijs voor september (en doen dat nog steeds), waarin de 1,5m richtlijn grote beperkingen oplegt aan de capaciteit van onderwijsruimtes. Daarom houden sommige instellingen hun onderwijs bijna volledig online, en kiezen andere instellingen voor alternatieve setups, waarin sommige activiteiten wel op de campus plaatsvinden (zoals kleinschalig groepswerk of praktijklessen). Er zijn echter ook instellingen die kiezen voor de setup waarin een deel van de studenten fysiek aanwezig is, terwijl een ander deel vanaf afstand inbelt. Deze setting heet de hybrid virtual classroom. Maar hoe zit het nu precies? Wat is er al over bekend? En wat zijn de aandachtspunten? Een overzicht van een uitdagende onderwijssetting.

Distributed Work’s Five Levels of Autonomy
10 apr. 2020 - I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Sam Harris, author and host of the Making Sense podcast, for a wide-ranging conversation. Given the moment we’re currently living through, we naturally touched on the way companies are adapting to a new reality — one where remote work is a model to which they must adapt in a matter of days, rather than years.

Proctoring Apps Subject Students to Unnecessary Surveillance
20 aug. 2020 - With COVID-19 forcing millions of teachers and students to rethink in-person schooling, this moment is ripe for an innovation in learning. Unfortunately, many schools have simply substituted surveillance technology for real transformation. The use of proctoring apps—privacy-invasive software products that “watch” students as they take tests or complete schoolwork, has skyrocketed. These apps make a seductive promise: that schools can still rely on high-stakes tests, where they have complete control of a student's environment, even during remote learning. But that promise comes with a huge catch—these apps violate student privacy, negatively impact some populations, and will likely never fully stop creative students from outsmarting the system.

Doug Lederman: Hyflex Zoom call
College leaders around the country are wrestling with a difficult set of questions about whether and how to reopen their physical campuses to students this fall in a way that's both safe to students, staffs,and surrounding communities and educationally sound. The conversation we're about to have here is not about whether campuses will open. We'll leave that to the campus health experts and chief financial officers and others who areinvolved in making that very difficult andhigh-stakes decision,which takes into account whether colleges can house and feed andotherwise serve students safely.

On Refusal
10 aug. 2020 - Every academic’s favorite short story is Herman Melville’s “Bartleby, the Scrivener.” Or at least, every academic’s favorite line is that famous one from “Bartleby”: “I would prefer not to.” Sure, Bartleby is probably clinically depressed (I’m not the hugest fan of psychoanalytical literary analysis but this one seems pretty straightforward), but in those five words Melville concretizes one of the great desires of all those who struggle under wage labor: the desire to simply not.

Use of a Social Annotation Platform for Pre-Class Reading Assignments in a Flipped Introductory Physics Class
3 mar. 2018 - In this paper, we illustrate the successful implementation of pre-class reading assignments through a social learning platform that allows students to discuss the reading online with their classmates. We show how the platform can be used to understand how students are reading before class. We find that, with this platform, students spend an above average amount of time reading (compared to that reported in the literature) and that most students complete their reading assignments before class. We identify specific reading behaviors that are predictive of in-class exam performance. We also demonstrate ways that the platform promotes active reading strategies and produces high-quality learning interactions between students outside class. Finally, we compare the exam performance of two cohorts of students, where the only difference between them is the use of the platform; we show that students do significantly better on exams when using the platform.

A global outlook to the interruption of education due to COVID-19 pandemic: Navigating in a time of uncertainty and crisis
6 jun. 2020 - Uncertain times require prompt reflexes to survive and this study is a collaborative reflex to better understand uncertainty and navigate through it. The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic hit hard and interrupted many dimensions of our lives, particularly education. As a response to interruption of education due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this study is a collaborative reaction that narrates the overall view, reflections from the K-12 and higher educational landscape, lessons learned and suggestions from a total of 31 countries across the world with a representation of 62,7% of the whole world population. In addition to the value of each case by country, the synthesis of this research suggests that the current practices can be defined as emergency remote education and this practice is different from planned practices such as distance education, online learning or other derivations. Above all, this study points out how social injustice, inequity and the digital divide have been exacerbated during the pandemic and need unique and targeted measures if they are to be addressed. While there are support communities and mechanisms, parents are overburdened between regular daily/professional duties and emerging educational roles, and all parties are experiencing trauma, psychological pressure and anxiety to various degrees, which necessitates a pedagogy of care, affection and empathy. In terms of educational processes, the interruption of education signifies the importance of openness in education and highlights issues that should be taken into consideration such as using alternative assessment and evaluation methods as well as concerns about surveillance, ethics, and data privacy resulting from nearly exclusive dependency on online solutions.

Enkele relevante bronnen over online communityvorming en het bevorderen van binding (online)
16 jul. 2020 - Onderwijsinstellingen in het hoger onderwijs en middelbaar beroepsonderwijs zijn er volgens mij de afgelopen maanden best goed in geslaagd online onderwijs te verzorgen waardoor lerenden zich cognitief konden blijven ontwikkelen. Zaken als binding en communityvorming blijken echter moeilijker online te bevorderen. De laatste tijd ben ik een aantal bronnen tegen gekomen die juist hierover gaan. En deze wil ik graag met jullie delen.

Didactief | De gevaarlijke mythe van de brede vaardigheden
10 jun. 2020 - In bijna ieder curriculumdocument wordt onderstreept dat leerlingen moeten leren probleem oplossen, onderzoeken, reflecteren, zelfreguleren, informatie verwerven, creatief en kritisch denken. Er wordt vaak ten onrechte vanuit gegaan dat het hier om brede vaardigheden gaat die je in een bepaald domein kunt leren en vervolgens in andere domeinen weer kunt toepassen. Dit is een gevaarlijke mythe.
