1 Engaging Students for Optimum Learning Online Informing the Design of Online Learning By the Principles of How People Learn
2 What Is Engagement? As early as 1995, student engagement was "the latest buzzword in education circles." (Kenny et al., 1995, p. 37) In an interview study of faculty perceptions of student engagement, Berardi (2002) suggested that faculty need to share a definition of student engagement. How can we construct such a definition? By studying the principles of How People Learn.
3 How People Learn A landmark book from the National Research Council, How People Learn is freely available at openbook.php? isbn=
4 Rules of Engagement From this work by the National Research Council (2000, p. 18), we know that people are motivated to learn when they can: 1. Set their own goals; 2. Reflect on their progress; and 3. Feel in control of their learning. The key to engaging students online is to apply these principles to your course design.
5 Engage Your Students Early in the Course Key Principles of Online Learning
6 Engaging Your Students Early In online learning, it is important to engage students early in the course. This creates a dynamic conversational framework that establishes an empathetic bond (Holmberg, 2003) among students and professor. I create this bond by engaging students early in the course through assignments that get students accustomed to interacting with me.
9 Constructing Goals The innate human desire to develop competence is an important factor in motivating people to learn (National Research Council, 2000, p. 60). In one of the early assignments, I work with my students to construct their goals, which are performance based. Having students articulate their goals early in the course and hone them dialogically creates a bond that the professor later uses to scaffold students when they begin encountering difficulty.
10 Identifying the Zone When students begin encountering difficulty, they enter an educational space that the great Russian psychologist Vygotsky (1978, p. 86) called the Zone of Proximal Development; I simply call it the Zone. It is in the Zone that you can use the coaching protocol in your LMS to help students when they encounter difficulty. Coaching students in their Zone is the most important principle of e-learning, and I believe it is the most important feature of a Learning Management System.
12 Follow the Principles of Multimedia Learning How the Principles of Multimedia Learning Inform the Design of Engaging Course Content
13 Multimedia Learning Theory Richard Mayer s (2001, p. 44) Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning
14 Multimedia Learning Principles Principle Effect on Learning 1. Multimedia Deeper learning from words and pictures than words alone 2. Contiguity Deeper learning from presenting words and pictures simultaneously rather than successively 3. Coherence Deeper learning when extraneous words, sounds, or pictures are excluded rather than included 4. Modality Deeper learning when words are presented as narration rather than as on-screen text 5. Redundancy Deeper learning when words are presented as narration rather than as both narration and on-screen text 6. Personalization Deeper learning when words are presented in conversational style rather than formal style 7. Segmentation Deeper learning when complex lessons are presented in smaller parts 8. Pretraining Deeper learning when key terms are explained in advance Source: Clark & Mayer (2006, p. 386), summarized.
15 Multimedia Research Results Cognitive Principle Effect Size 1. Multimedia of 9 2. Contiguity of 8 3. Coherence of Modality of Redundancy of Personalization of Segmentation of 3 8. Pretraining of 7 Studies Showing This Effect Clark & Mayer (2008, p. 383)
16 Personalization Principle In terms of engaging learners, the most important principle identified by Mayer is the simplest, namely, the Personalization Principle. The personalization principle is that people learn better when the instructor uses conversational style rather than formal style. The rationale is that people try harder to make sense of the presented material (i.e., engage in the cognitive processes of organizing and integrating) when they feel they are in a social partnership with the instructor. (Mayer, 2001, p. 394) You achieve this by writing in first and second person. Imagine improving results (es=1.30) so simply!
17 Create Learning Communities Students form powerful learning communities in the Discussions
18 Discussions Most learning management systems include an option to create Discussions in which students can read, respond, and create new topics. Requiring students to participate in Discussions results in the formation of powerful learning communities. Zhao and Kuh (2004, p. 124) found that Participating in learning communities is uniformly and positively linked with student academic performance, engagement in educationally fruitful activities (such as academic integration, active and collaborative learning, and interaction with faculty members), gains associated with college attendance, and overall satisfaction with the college experience. As Manfra (2009) noted, these communities become so powerful that faculty find themselves learning from students.
19 Rubrics When a colleague was bought out by a grant, I taught her course that used rubrics for discussions. The rubrics required students to be timely, cite from assigned readings, and include references to other student responses. Because I teach with a more relaxed style, I worried that such rigor would lower my teaching evaluations. Instead, my ratings hit an all-time high. Students valued the increase in engagement that the rubric encouraged.
25 Student Evaluation Feedback I hated each discussion question. I dreaded answering them. I spent too much time stewing over how I was going to answer the questions while considering all the learning theories and exemplars in the text and in the student responses. As I look back at the questions and the responses, I realize how powerful this assignment was and how much I learned. We created our own extremely useful research tool! The pages and pages of reference material, reflections and success stories form a technology guide that will greatly enhance my research and curriculum development skills.
26 Negotiate Real-World Topics Engaging Students in Authentic Contexts
27 Rule s Model In analyzing forty-five scholarly articles about authentic learning, Rule (2006, p. 2) identified the following four themes: 1. The activity involves real-world problems that mimic the work of professionals in the discipline with presentation of findings to audiences beyond the classroom. 2. Open-ended inquiry, thinking skills, and metacognition are addressed. 3. Students engage in discourse and social learning in a community of learners. 4. Students are empowered through choice to direct their own learning in relevant project work.
28 Why Negotiate? As Jonassen (2014, p. 282) found in assessing problem solving, When students construct and elaborate their own cases, they are more deeply engaged in learning than when interpreting someone else s cases. The time spent negotiating topics at the beginning of a course creates the foundation for deep engagement later in the course. You can even design instruction into your feedbacks.
29 Negotiating Topics: Designed Instruction (Google & Clickz)
30 Negotiating Topics: Designed Instruction (National Plan)
31 Negotiating Topics: Grandma Factor
32 Negotiating Topics: Discussed via
33 Negotiating Topics: Busy, not late
34 Make Students Blog Engaging Students in their Zone by Making Thinking Visible
35 Checkpoints Along the way, while students work on their projects, I have them blog about their progress. By making thinking visible, blogs enable you to coach students in their zone. Three times during the semester, I award students points for keeping their progress logs. Because these are points at which I check in on each student, I call them checkpoints.
36 Feedback as Learning System As we learn from Molloy and Boud (2014, p. 413), A constructivist view on feedback encourages learners and educators to view feedback as a system of learning, rather than discreet episodes of educators telling learners about their performance. When students have frequent opportunities to engage in productive, dialogic exchanges with multiple others, they are more likely to see feedback as a tool for them rather than as a destabilizing or debilitating act done to them by those in authority. (p. 422)
37 Checkpoint Feedback: Readings helpful
38 Checkpoint Feedback: Brief Prepared Reply
39 Checkpoint Feedback: Cool tool discovery
40 Checkpoint Feedback: Local 3D Printing Shop
41 Save Your Feedbacks For Future Use Feedback as Learning System
42 Thinking Patterns Especially if your class is large, how will you have time to engage all your students if you must write this amount of dialogical feedback online? In a large class with hundreds of students participating online, there will not be hundreds of thinking patterns. Instead, as you grade the checkpoints, you will detect a relatively small number of patterns of student thinking in the course. By preparing feedbacks to scaffold students at critical points in this thinking, you can be prepared to interact effectively by engaging each student in their zone.
43 Designing Online Feedbacks You create a file in which you keep designed feedbacks. Each time you write a new feedback, you put it into this file from which you can retrieve it on demand whenever another student encounters a similar problem. I do this with MS Word in which I give each feedback s title a heading style, which enables me to use the Navigation pane as an index into all my feedbacks.
47 elearning Engagement Template Putting Theory into Practice: Five elearning Strategies for Engaging Students Online
48 Five Elements of Engagement 1. Discuss goals with each learner to create an empathetic bond at the beginning of the course. 2. Turn extrinsic motivation intrinsic by negotiating topics that students feel passionate about. 3. Make thinking visible through periodic checkpoints to provide effective scaffolding when students need help. 4. Form a learning community by using rubrics that encourage students to communicate meaningfully with peers and instructors in online discussion forums. 5. Design instruction into prepared feedbacks for coaching students in their zone.
49 Applicability to Your LMS Learning Management Systems are not created equal. Many have blogs but some do not support blogging. Some have wikis while others do not. The challenge is, depending on your brand of LMS, how can you accomplish the five elements of online engagement? Let us work through an example.
