Creating and Maintaining Your Online Presence
Limited Capacity seats available
 

This workshop will provide attendees a focused session to get up and running with your web domain and hosting account with OU Create (create.ou.edu) that can be used to build blogs, portfolios, wikis, and more. By the end of this session you will have gotten the following:

  • How to register a domain name
  • Understanding of a web hosting account (with instruction of how to manage it)
  • Instructions for installing at least one open source application on your web server (such as WordPress, Omeka, Drupal, MediaWiki etc.)
  • Instructions for publishing original content to your space

Sounds crazy, right? But it's not, taking control of your online presence and managing your own web space has never been easier. The goal of this workshop is to provide faculty, technologists, and administrators a hands-on overview of how the web works from the inside-out. In a moment when everyone is talking about controlling your data, learning to code, and web literacy---a sandbox space like this is invaluable for taking the first steps in truly interrogating how the web works.

Make Rubrics Work for You in D2L
Limited Capacity seats available
 
Specific challenges or issues you will address Faculty is challenged to develop rubrics with meaningful, objective criteria for assignments. Using rubrics is time and labor intensive. Development of rubrics in D2L is not intuitive and may not be well suited to a rubric you have already developed. Key concepts: Define a rubric and its use as an assessment, evaluation and feedback tool. Discuss how objectives and competencies can be assessed using a rubric. Develop a rubric using course objectives or competencies US Healthcare Systems has been delivered as a classroom course and was modified Summer 2014 as an online course. This course has a policy analysis paper assignment that addresses several of the course objectives and competencies and was an important assessment tool for the course. A grading rubric was developed to evaluate this paper and link it to course objectives and competencies. The rubric was also designed to give students a clear description of the expectations for the paper and how points would be assigned for the paper. This rubric in turn was modified for D2L so that the online students could get feedback similar to the classroom student. The use of a rubric in D2L also saved time for the instructor and allowed the instructor to provide more specific feedback. Adapting the rubric to D2L was challenging as the default settings did not align with the scoring scheme of the rubric. Several different help screens identified how the rubric could be modified to customize the rubric for the instructor. This session will be experiential with participants developing a rubric n D2L based on an objective for a course they teach. Participants will gain hands on experience in rubric development in D2L.

Mission Prime: Teaching calculus through an instructional video game
Limited Capacity seats available
 
Mission Prime is an instructional video game developed at the University of Oklahoma K20 Center in conjunction with Dr. Kornelson from the mathematics department and with funding from the provost's office. Mission Prime focuses on developing students' conceptual understanding in the topic of optimization. In an experiment involving 132 students, we were able to show that Mission Prime is more effective than traditional homework at fostering conceptual understanding of the topic and also increases student engagement far above traditional methods. This presentation should help to demonstrate to audience members that digital game-based leaning applications are a viable option for the university classroom. After the presentation, audience members will be able to demo the game for themselves.

The One Who Does the Work Does the Learning: Creating Effective Active Learning Environments
Limited Capacity filling up
 

Nobel laureate Herbert Simon proposed that “learning results from what the student does and thinks and only from what the student does and thinks.” This is undoubtedly an overstatement and seriously undervalues the crucial role of the instructor in creating and guiding learning opportunities for students. However, Simon’s perspective appropriately highlights that learning requires active engagement of learners as they incorporate new information into pre-existing knowledge structures. Contemporary understanding of the biological basis of learning demonstrates that learning -- the ability to apply and integrate new information even after a significant period of time -- leads to demonstrable changes in the structure of the brain that do not result from the emphasis on memorization encouraged by a teacher-centric, lecture-based method. Teaching has therefore been termed “the art of changing the brain” (Zull 2002) which means that both student and teacher should accept that the classroom environment is a surprisingly intimate one!

In this workshop we will address how to create environments that promote true student learning. The specific objectives will be to:

  • Review the scientific support for using a student-centered, active learning approach.
  • Experience and evaluate several examples of active learning approaches.
  • Discuss how to build an entire course around active learning principles.
  • Consider how to integrate these techniques into pre-existing courses.
  • Discuss how to evaluate student learning so as to assess the effectiveness of a learning environment.
  • Consider how to respond to resistance from students, colleagues, and administrators to active learning approaches. 

The emphasis will, not surprisingly, be on active involvement by participants. An overarching goal is to build enthusiasm for a teaching model that shifts the role of the instructor from expert/oracle to facilitator/coach. I also hope to demonstrate that teaching this way is not only more effective for the learner, but tremendously more rewarding for the teacher as his/her relationship with students change in positive and meaningful ways.

Keynote - Domain of One's Own: Digital Agency in the 21st Century
 

This presentation will explore the importance of providing students, faculty, and staff with an innovative, web-based platform for owning, managing and migrating the digital work they create over the course of their academic careers. What's more, this platform is not a vendor-driven product, but an ecosystem of open source applications that must be central to their critique and creation of the digital world. It's the backbone for a broader, curricular-wide push for cross-disciplinary digital fluency. In essence, the platform undergirding the pioneering work of Domain of One's Own at Mary Washington is the open web. More than a learning system or publishing platform, UMW Domains recognizes and codifies the importance of digital agency for each and every learner on campus, and provides the means of enabling this for each individual at scale. The impact of the global information network on our campus community is not imagined or inferred, it is intentionally designed and cultivated. Welcome to the digital liberal arts, and the emergence of the indieweb in higher ed. Can you grok the future?

Many researches focus on developing learning and teaching by using educational technologies for humans needs of knowledge. Current educational system depends on technology systems and vice versa for developing good methods for educational purposes. Among all educational purposes there is an important purpose which is discovering talents by designing robotics. There is an interesting field that lets technology itself learns how to learn by developed robots. Robot learning is a new research field in the current century that merges the intersection of machine learning and robotics. My interest is robotics and education, so I would provide a new method that it is called "robotics learning" which is an educational method for talents to learn designing, programming, and solving problems by using robots. I would introduce a brief of many researchers and introduce my idea of developing robots' environments in mobile devices for educational purposes.

Exhibit-based Learning - Galileo's World: Bringing Worlds Together, Coming 2015-16
 
To celebrate OU’s 125th anniversary, the Galileo’s World exhibition connects the story of Galileo with the University of Oklahoma. Because of OU Libraries and the Galileo collection, the story of Galileo is part of every student’s & researcher’s experience at OU. Now, just as the Library serves the entire university, so the Galileo’s World exhibition will showcase the entire University, connecting our worlds across time and space. Galileo’s World will be an Exhibition without Walls: distributed across 7 locations, including three University of Oklahoma campuses; comprised of more than 20 galleries; and featuring more than 300 rare books, historical instrument replicas, and various interactive digital resources. Joint exhibitions will occur at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, and the National Weather Center. Galileo’s World will engage adults, university classes, and school groups, across a broad spectrum of interests in the natural sciences, engineering and humanities. Direct connections to the exhibit will be appreciated by anyone with an interest in physics, astronomy, science and music, science and art, science and religion, science and literature, science and politics, manuscripts and printing history, geology, botany, zoology, microscopy, and all branches of engineering and mathematics. The Galileo's World exhibition connects the past and the future, from Greek mathematics to the space age. Galileo’s World connects the natural sciences to other cultural endeavors including music, the visual arts, literature, philosophy, religion and popular culture. Galleries devoted to Galileo and Islamic science, Galileo and China, and to Galileo and America, suggest the breadth of the exhibition. Learn about programming opportunities, how to participate, and how to incorporate the exhibit into your courses.

Use of Tablets for Exams in Engineering Classes
Limited Capacity seats available
 
With the use of electronic media for courses, there is a major problem with exams that are open book. Previously, student laptops have been allowed during exams so that they can access course textbooks (eBooks). The use of student laptops during exams has become a source of problems over the years as communication software becomes more prevalent and sophisticated. It is no longer reasonable to expect the instructor and TAs to monitor student laptops during exams. To solve this problem, android based tablets with special apps have been developed and implemented into two fundamental AME (School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering) courses, Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics, at the University of Oklahoma. The presentation will be cover the selection process for the Android-based tablets and how the two main apps were developed. The first app, "examApp" permits the student to access the online text and it records the student's choices. It has numerous security features that limit access to the exam only on the tablets provided and only during the test time. The second app, "eBookApp", allows the student access to the online eBook used for the class. However, it blocks the student from other online web site or material. The Android operating system itself was modified to limit access to standard apps like email, app stores, social networks, and even browsers. The results of using the tablets and apps in both courses for Fall 2014 semester will be presented.
