Title題名 : Enabling Homework Options through Moodle
Type種類 : Presentation (40 mins)
Category部類 : Individual presentation
Language言語 : English
Abstract要約 :

A great but underutilized strength of Moodle is its power to allow for individual choice in learning. Buzzwords and phrases such as autonomy, student-centered learning, and agency abound in the recent talk about pedagogy. Often, however, there is a gulf between the talk and actual practice. This presentation will look specifically at how our institution has attempted to provide 2nd-year students with greater control over just one segment of learning, their homework.


The first part of the presentation will focus on the Moodle course design of the homework component. I will briefly demonstrate how students tried the four available homework options and indicated the two they chose to pursue via the Choice activity. Participants will next be shown how we’ve utilized groups and activity level restrictions to make the appropriate content visible for individual students. We will also explore some of the peripheral effects on aspects of Moodle, including the Gradebook and Course Completion.


The second part of the presentation will focus on student and teacher reaction to student choice in homework. We will discuss the benefits of this project and the challenges, both from a pedagogical point of view and from a technical perspective. We will finally discuss solutions going forward and how other teachers and institutions can benefit from a similar approach.
