Leveraging technology to teach large cohorts: Comparing high and low resource investment
19 October @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDTFree
Elaine Huber leads the University of Sydney Business School Co-Design Unit (BCD). Her 30-member team includes educational developers, digital learning designers and technologists, media producers, student interns and educational evaluators. BCD collaborates with large cohort unit coordinators to redesign the delivery of their units. Elaine will discuss their journey which is supported by large strategic project funding (Connected Learning at Scale) and provide examples of innovations based on the following three guiding principles:
- Connecting with discipline knowledge
- Connecting with Peers through active and collaborative activities
- Connecting with society through authentic assessment
While Brent Gregory was responsible for introductory Accounting Units at the University of New England, he structured those units to facilitate scalable personalisation. Brent had no budget and so took a more basic approach targeted more at the low hanging fruit.
This presentation will display a continuum from state of the art to low cost and provides a framework and examples for you to consider your approach to a more effective delivery of large cohort units.
