  • #62 Audio Feedback: timely media interventions

    23/06/2008 Duração: 28min

    Recording of the session entitled Audio Feedback: timely media interventions from the Blended Learning Conference 2008, University of Hertfordshire, 19 June 2008 Abstract: Audio feedback involves the use of distributed digital audio to provide formative messages to students helping them to develop knowledge and the way they learn. This paper presents several case studies by drawing upon interviews with academic staff and student focus groups. Ongoing research with these stakeholders identifies why audio feedback models, of which there are many, can be attractive and why they need to be carefully designed and integrated into the curriculum. The paper presents some early findings about the effective design of audio feedback and considers whether the interest in audio feedback may signal greater interest in designing constructivist media interventions.

  • #60 Digital Storytelling for HE -

    10/03/2008 Duração: 21min

    Digital Storytelling is yet to make a large impact on Higher Education in the UK. This is about to change.

In this interview Julie Coleman, a Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy at Sheffield Hallam, describes her own interest in the media and he thoughts about its wider application.

There is also a photo competition to encourage students to submit work. A Picture is worth a thousand words - Prove it! Digital cameras in one form or another are within reach of most of us everyday, wherever we are. Tools to edit and distribute the photographs we produce are also widely accessible. Your challenge is to demonstrate how can we take advantage of this in education. Picture This! will be an exhibition featuring photographs taken by students and staff in the course of learning and teaching. To encourage students to contribute a photograph, and the story of why it was taken, the University is running this competition with three £150 prizes. Your photo assignment...

    11/09/2007 Duração: 23min

    Susannah Diamond and Andrew Middleton discuss the design and facilitation of a role play activity from a workshop they led at the ALT-C 2007 conference at Nottingham University. The role play was intended to reveal the perspectivities of various academic stakeholders with regard to the adoption og Web 2.0 technologies as e-portfolios. They discuss what worked and why and then consider whether the extensive data generated during the role play is of value in and of itself. The discussion references the wiki to which the data was posted. This is publicly available at http://portfolios-2-0.pbwiki.com.

It came as a surprise to find that matters regarding the academic adoption of Web 2.0 were beginning to fall into place. The discussion references the wiki to which the data was posted.

This episode also includes the voice of a student reflecting on the approach. This interview was conducted during a Skype phone conversation. The approach is discussed in the following paper: Nortcliffe, A. and Middleton, A. (2007) Audio Feedback for the ipod Generation.
