Chaos and Change: Implications of Smart Technologies on Learning and Instructional Practices for Traditional Learners

Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Gwendolyn Dooley (Capella University)
Track: Leadership and Institutional Strategies

Brief Abstract:

Learning is no longer confined to a systematic, linear process since the emergence of distance learning and smart technologies. Learning is fluid within a complex and chaotic educational environment. A system must be continuous, dynamic, evolving, but not predictable to be labeled chaotic. But, the emergence of smart technologies and distance learning created disruptions that lead to chaos in traditional educational systems.  The use of smart technologies in 21st-century classrooms offers new opportunities for teaching and learning and chaos for some educational managers, learners, and instructors. For traditional programs, the emergence of smart technologies caused a paradigm shift that requires instructors to adopt innovative instructional practices using smart technologies to create a learning environment conducive to active learning in real-time.

No One Reads the Syllabus

Conference Session: Concurrent Session 5
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Miriam Abbott (Mount Carmel College of Nursing)
Track: Engaged and Effective Teaching and Learning
Location: Zoom Room 2
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

“It’s in the syllabus!” is the constant refrain of higher education faculty.  Every semester brings a repetitive batch of student questions that have already been addressed in a course syllabus. The same types of repetitive questions arise when it comes to course assignments.  Again, the instructions have been ignored

 In general, a student’s failure to demonstrate comprehension of course instructions stems from two sources:

  1. The student failed to read the instructions

  2. The student failed to understand the instructions

It would be naive to conclude that only the student has failed here. The author of the instructions may also be at fault. Copywriting is a pursuit that’s devoted to creating compelling, reader-friendly content.  When content is compelling, the learner wants to engage.  When content is reader-friendly, the learner understands the written text.  Most academics are not well-versed in best practices from copywriting, leaning instead towards what has been described as “needless complexity”

Guidance from three fields can dramatically improve instructional writing style.  Studies in neuroscience have suggested best practices for writing for reader comprehension. Behavioral science has suggested best practices for writing that motivates compliance. And the field of technical writing suggests techniques for simplifying specialized information.

Courses designed and executed using such principles were evaluated by students. At the close of the courses, more than 90% of students in the anonymous course evaluations agreed or strongly agreed with the statements that described the course as clear, understandable, and well-organized.

This session will describe how an Office of Blended and Online Learning implemented instructional design services at scale during an immediate pivot to remote teaching, beginning March 11, 2020. As with many higher education institutions, this department found themselves tasked with supporting hundreds of faculty members and many who have never taught a hybrid or online course. In addition, many faculty were unfamiliar with instructional design services. With only two days’ notice, how will a small department of two new instructional designers and one dean manage the workload? When the spring semester is over, how will they plan their faculty development offerings to prepare faculty for the fall, regardless of modality? These questions and many more will be answered during this session.

Brief Abstract:

Using technology for instruction can be frustrating. Applying various educational concepts and models — e.g., situated cognition, SAMR (substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition) and/or TPACK (technological, pedagogical and content knowledge) — can guide decisions on proper tech tool integration. These and other theoretical frameworks enhance tech-based instructional decisions to transform learning. Participants will explore these ideas, select the proper tech tool for instruction, and be able to design a technology-integrated assignment. Several tech tools will be suggested. An example of a technology-integrated plan also will be provided.

Is This Mine?: Developing a Scope of Practice for Online Educators
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Karen Costa (Southern New Hampshire University)
Track: Engaged and Effective Teaching and Learning
Location: Discovery Sessions
Brief Abstract:

As online education continues to expand, scope of practice, a model used within the healthcare fields to identify the breadth of one's professional role and responsibilities, is increasingly relevant. In the online classroom, what is ours? What do we let go of, and what do we address? What do we take on as our own, and what do we refer to others? With the advent of humanizing online learning practices and a growing awareness around mental health, addiction, and trauma, online educators can benefit from developing a scope of practice to guide their work. In this discovery session, participants will discuss the potential of applying this model to our work, and begin crafting a potential scope of practice for today's online educators.

Measuring Self-Efficacy in Research Skills: An Explanatory Mixed Methods Research Design.
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Imani Akin (American College of Education)
Co-presenter: Jamie Ball (American College of Education)
Track: Engaged and Effective Teaching and Learning
Location: Discovery Sessions
Brief Abstract:

The United States can maintain a competitive stance among other countries in research by ensuring self-efficacy regarding research skills in novice and new researchers. Given the recent news regarding foreign influence into American universities and intellectual products, it is more important to produce domestic researchers with the necessary skills to advance the U. S. in many disciplines (Lee, 2020). The purpose of the research is to test/discover the self-efficacy regarding qualitative and quantitative skills for recent doctoral graduates. An explanatory mixed methods research design will be implemented to answer the research questions. Snowball sampling will be used to recruit recent doctoral graduates (Biernacki & Waldorf, 1981). The research questions were designed to test for significant differences in degree type, methodology, or study design, and how the relationship with their dissertation chair contributed towards research self-efficacy. Clinical Research Appraisal Inventory (CRAI – 12) will be used to measure research self-efficacy.

Online Learner Views of Asynchronous Discussions as a Predictor of Final Grades
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Jeffrey Bailie (Purdue University - Global)
Track: Research, Evaluation, and Learning Analytics
Location: Discovery Sessions
Brief Abstract:

Discussion boards have come to be a backbone of the online learning experience. According to Ding (2017), the potential benefits of asynchronous online discussion include positive outcomes such as thoughtful and reflective interaction among peers through increased engagement between participants, resulting in a bolstering of active learning.  However, only when students fully engage in the discussion activity, can the aforementioned benefits be realized. Regretfully, challenges of low participation rates and shallow discourse are frequently reported by online faculty (Hew & Cheung, 2012).

This session presents the results of contemporary research considering online discussion boards, including the results of the 2019 investigation that reviewed weekly online course discussion analytics in relation to overall online learner performance. In particular, the study considered whether there is a correlation between individual involvement in weekly discussions (as determined by their direct viewing of the posts of their classmates) and the resulting final grade in the course.

This method, along with others, will be explained, all designed to help instructors plan for additional or alternative assessments to diversify their instruction and assessment. Attendees are encouraged to come with a course in mind that they want to use for this interactive session.
