Description:

<p>This CPD webinar will be led by Leigh-Anne Perryman from the Open University.&nbsp;</p>

<p>A new free course from The Open University is supporting educators from multiple sectors and subjects around the world in addressing the climate crisis in their teaching, responding to teachers&rsquo; widespread calls for training that will help meet their students&rsquo; demands for relevant and effective climate education.</p>

<p>The 16-hour, OpenLearn-based course - Supporting climate action through digital education - is unique in focusing on multiple subject areas &ndash; including science, visual art, literature, geography and health. There&rsquo;s an emphasis on supporting young people in participating in climate action, and in engaging with local communities to tackle climate crisis-related problems. The course aims to support educators in schools, colleges and universities in designing and delivering online, blended and technology-enhanced teaching and learning through a pedagogy of hope and care that supports students of all ages in understanding the causes and impacts of environmental collapse and addressing them through global citizenship, individual and collective direct action, and democratic participation. Completing the course gains participants a digital badge.</p>

<p>In this webinar, course leader Dr Leigh-Anne Perryman, Associate Director (Curriculum) at The Open University&rsquo;s Institute of Educational Technology, will give an overview of the course and share how it was created by a team of passionate educators working across disciplinary boundaries.</p>

<p>A discussion will follow, exploring how teaching in different subject areas can help support students in climate change mitigation and adaptation, and how collaboration across disciplines and across generations is essential.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Put the kettle on and join us for 45 minutes of lovely learning-techy chatter to start your day. This informal online meeting of ALT WM is a chance for you to come together with other Learning Technology professionals in the region (and beyond) to network, share ideas, get advice, debate hot topics and more. There&#39;s no agenda, so the topics for discussion are very much in your hands! However, we&#39;d really love to hear from you if you are attending JISC DigiFest or other learning tech focussed events in the coming weeks to share your key takeaways with colleagues who couldn&#39;t get out of the office to attend.</p>

<p>Following on from their recent blog post <a href="https://altc.alt.ac.uk/blog/2023/12/third-space-reflections-on-how-we-ch... reflections on how we channel the explosion of generative AI into respectful active learning communities&rdquo;,</a> Dr Catherine Elkin, Leanne Fitton and Dr Chris Little with further explore the work they have undertaken at Manchester Metropolitan University to provide support and guidance to both staff and students about generative AI.</p>

<p>In this interactive webinar you will have the opportunity to share how you have approached supporting staff and students to develop critical AI literacies. What has worked well? What challenges has it presented? How can we overcome them? We will work together to collate a set of resources and strategies that we can collectively draw on. As explained in the blog post, this can be a challenging topic to navigate, so let&#39;s use this webinar as an opportunity to support one another.</p>

Description:

<p>Educators have begun to transition to a learner-centred approach, aiming to put individual student needs and interests at the forefront (Alamri et al., 2021). As a result, higher education institutions are increasingly employing technology to personalize students&rsquo; learning and master their expertise (Lesser, 2016). Indeed, according to Kara and Sevim (2013), the opportunity and capability to integrate digital tools into the teaching and learning process have truly transformed higher education. The use of such practices has been accelerated, in part, by COVID-19 (e.g., O&rsquo;Dea and Stern, 2021) as well as pedagogical research (e.g., Armellini and Rodriguez, 2021) and institutions (i.e., Advance HE) advocating for a hybrid and/or blended approach to learning. Such driving forces have subsequently witnessed adaptive learning technologies being classified as one of the six most promising technologies emerging within the higher education setting worldwide (EDUCAUSE, 2020), bringing opportunities to explore new venues for teaching and learning. Many adaptive learning technologies can be implemented by educators in a bid to facilitate student learning. Mastery paths, which can be incorporated into the virtual learning environment of Canvas, are one such adaptive learning technology that has emerged within this practice. The Mastery Path initiative has been running for three years across three subjects and has amassed data from over 1,200 students. The results have been fascinating, with students responding positively and demonstrating the same levels of understanding (and, in some cases, more). However, our focus over the last 12 months has centered on how this initiative has impacted student transitions into tertiary education.</p>

Description:

<p>Presented by Daniel Villalba Algas. Most universities have been working on identifying skills that their graduates will achieve after graduation, regardless of the programme of studies. Some examples of those skills are teamwork, communication, critical thinking, etc. Employers have identified those skills as essential in the current job market.</p>

<p><br />
Those skills are typically called graduate attributes, and in the case of The University of Sheffield, there are 12 graduate attributes and 3 sub-attributes for each, making the total sum of 36 skills.<br />
<br />
One of the problems that we have discovered is that because of the number of attributes and how some attributes are described, they are difficult to identify, and students don&rsquo;t know when they have achieved them. In this practical session, I will demonstrate how self-made badges have been used to make students and staff aware of those graduate attributes and identify what activities are working towards achieving them.<br />
<br />
<br />
This session is aimed at Learning technologists, Course Designers and Employability Managers who seek ways to promote those graduate attributes among their students through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This project is an example of the use of internal badges and how those can evolve so they become a tool that can help students outside the university environment; it is also a case study where the VLE has been used to increase student engagement and add extra functionality.<br />
<br />
After this session, you will be able to start using badges to identify soft skills and possibly apply the same or similar approach to your institution.</p>
