Designing Rubrics For Authentic Assessment, Kathryn Richardson, Anne-Marie Chase Feb 2019

Designing Rubrics For Authentic Assessment, Kathryn Richardson, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

This presentation looks at the steps in developing authentic rubrics, from determining the constructs that will be assessed; breaking down the constructs into a set of broad capabilities that need to be observed; transferring capabilities into indicative behaviours (indicators or criteria); and determining the different levels of proficiency.

Group Work In Online Business Education – Pain Or Gain?, Steffen Zorn, Rhonni Sasaki, David Qian, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

In business education being able to collaborate is an important graduate attribute. However, group work often leads to frustration among students. The paper  investigated how students in an online business unit perceived group work. Results revealed distinctive student profiles. Some students thought they gained from it  and clearly saw value in different characteristics of group work. For other students group work was a pain. The paper concludes with recommendations how to  address these student groups.

The Space For Social Media In Structured Online Learning, Gilly Salmon, Bella Ross, Ekaterina Pechenkina, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

In this paper, we explore the benefits of using social media in an online educational setting, with a particular focus on the use of Facebook and Twitter by participants in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) developed to enable educators to learn about the Carpe Diem learning design process. We define social media as digital social tools and environments located outside of the provision of a formal university-provided Learning Management System. We use data collected via interviews and surveys with the MOOC participants as well as social media postings made by the participants throughout the MOOC to offer insights into ...

A Cross-Institutional Initiative In Digital Assessment, Anne-Marie Chase, Diane Robbie, Bella Ross, Ekaterina Pechenkina

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

This paper focuses on a cross institutional initiative between Swinburne Online (SOL) and Swinburne University of Technology (SUT), prototyping eight assessment types specifically designed for fully online undergraduate degrees, delivered by SOL, across a range of disciplines. This paper will report on the impact of a systematic project as a way to nurture innovation and good practice that will contribute to enhanced practice with digital assessment across both institutions. The digital assessments trialled in this initiative involve adaptive quizzes, group work, presentations, portfolio, role play, reflection and authentic alternatives to traditional formats such as an essay or report. The development ...

Wikis For Group Work: Encouraging Transparency, Benchmarking And Feedback, Amir Abdekhodaee, Dini Kourosh, Farnaz Modarres, Anne-Marie Chase, Bella Ross Dec 2014

Wikis For Group Work: Encouraging Transparency, Benchmarking And Feedback, Amir Abdekhodaee, Dini Kourosh, Farnaz Modarres, Anne-Marie Chase, Bella Ross

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

Education delivery models and approaches are undergoing radical change. The traditional knowledge exchange model whereby an educator imparts knowledge to students may not be best placed to develop essential skills for the 21st century (Griffin, McGaw, & Care, 2012) and is being challenged by models that encourage knowledge creation by students. Using a wiki to facilitate group work may provide students opportunities for collaborative learning (Blumenfeld, Marx, Soloway, & Krajcik, 1996), knowledge sharing and construction (Elgort, Smith, & Toland, 2008), and skill development. Wikis allow individual contributions to be traceable thereby increasing individual accountability in group work situations. Wikis can furthermore be monitored ...

Digital Technology In- And Out-Of-School : A Comparative Study Of The Nature And Levels Of Student Use And Engagement, Anne-Marie Chase Dec 2009

Digital Technology In- And Out-Of-School : A Comparative Study Of The Nature And Levels Of Student Use And Engagement, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

Today information technologies are everywhere. Digital technologies are seen globally as essential to a country’s economic success. A major consequence of the advent of the technological age is that young people today live in a „techno culture‟. Some argue, however, that since education moves slowly, the adoption of technology in schools has not been at the same progressive rate as in the wider community. They go further and hold that there is a difference between the technology experience of young people in school and in their everyday lives. The focus of the study, of which this provides a brief ...

Student Use Of Digital Technologies In And Out Of School, Anne-Marie Chase

Dr Anne-Marie Chase

The aim of this research is to describe how students' experiences of technology outside of school differ from their experiences in school. It is expected that there will be a difference in students' technology use in each environment and by providing levels for this use a comparison and measure of the differences can be made. Technology has changed the world around us, business and industry require workers to have new skills to operate and take advantage of the new opportunities that technology offers in the knowledge economy. Educators and schools aim to equip their students with skills that will be ...
