Resource Directory For Assessing Learners Online, Meg O'Reilly

Centre for Teaching and Learning

To address the need for critical research, and to target access to the wide range of resources in the field of online assessment practices in higher education now published on the Internet itself, a research project has recently commenced at Southern Cross University. This project aims to improve the online assessment practices of academic staff through reflective practice and action research. An accompanying website is under development to provide a directory of resources including examples of the practices and theories pertaining to assessment online, as well as links to published literature. The poster presentation will provide access to this resource ...


In At The Deep End: Swapping Roles Through Staff Development Online, Meg O'Reilly, Allan Ellis Jan 2002

In At The Deep End: Swapping Roles Through Staff Development Online, Meg O'Reilly, Allan Ellis

Centre for Teaching and Learning

After reviewing questions about how Australian Universities carry out staff development for online teaching and learning, this paper reports on an initiative that has brought together the outcomes of previous research into an online resource and workshop. Having piloted these, the full version of the workshop was recently completed by a group of staff at Southern Cross University. The authors reflect upon experiences of swapping roles – teachers becoming learners, and educational designer (usually a student advocate in the design process) becoming the teacher. Reflections on experiences are reported from reflective journal and evaluation data.

Managing Diversity In First Year Service Mathematics Course: Integration Of Effective Numeracy Teaching Principles And Management Theory, Janet A. Taylor, David Mander Jan 2002

Managing Diversity In First Year Service Mathematics Course: Integration Of Effective Numeracy Teaching Principles And Management Theory, Janet A. Taylor, David Mander

Centre for Teaching and Learning

First year service courses in mathematics are faced with numerous challenges as a result of the increasing diversity of student populations and the hierarchical nature of knowledge within mathematics. These challenges are even more extreme when such courses are offered in multi-mode format (on campus and by distance education). This paper describes the evolution of a foundation mathematics course, which currently integrates self-paced skill based materials, authentic problem solving activities and generic study skills into a unified curriculum which is underpinned by a 12 step scale for effective numeracy teaching (Marr and Helme 1991) and traditional management theory. The course ...

To breathe in some new ideas on assessment for learners in the changing online world, academic staff need to have time, energy and will for fresh reflections and collective dialogue upon their innovations ...
