    Help students make more thoughtful choices about how to study and learn (face-to-face and online):  Reasons, strategies, and resources


    Date: May 1, 2015
    Time: 2:00 PM ET
    Presenters: 
    Steve Gilbert & Beth Dailey, TLT Group,

    Why should students understand more about their own options for studying and learning? How can they take more responsibility for their own learning?  How can faculty enable students to make more effective choices about their own learning?   

    McGuire and Eder will describe how undergraduate students can improve their own learning rapidly and significantly in most courses (both face-to-face and online) by using  strategies such as:
    A.  Teaching students to apply Bloom's Taxonomy and PARSA Study Cycle in specific courses - and more widely
    B.  Assessing students'  engagement with course activities and content  
    Other colleagues will share specific Low-Threshold Activities/Apps/Assessments (LTAs) and Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) that can be used to support such strategies by faculty and/or directly by students to improve student learning in a variety of courses.
    In FridayLive! in March we revisited Chickering and Gamson's "Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education" and Ehrmann's article, "Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever." Metacognition was the most frequent suggestion for an extension of the original Seven Principles.  Teaching undergraduate students to use Bloom's Taxonom

    Should students grade each other’s work?
    When peers are involved in the assessment process it can provide more feedback to students and deepen the learning process. But is it a viable practice? Do students grade accurately? How can educators help students be better reviewers? Join a conversation about peer review and peer grading with  National Science Foundation IUSE (Improving Undergraduate STEM Education) project leaders. They will describe their project and what they hope to learn.  The discussion will focus on peer review at multiple grade levels and include both computer supported and paper based processes. We will also hear from students actively engaged in student peer review/assessment.  Participants will be invited to suggest additional research questions and to consider participating in future research.
