Good chat, on an individual level he’ll be looking at the potential uses of lecture capture / screencasting. Also, turning point and moodle quizzes. The discussion focused on the barrier of time and conflicting interests (research pressures), and the feeling there is little point as learning innovations do not seem respected / useful at the dept and institutional level. Interesting, as we do lots of this through awards, TDF, promotion track etc., however, this message hasn’t worked through.
The other message focused around OUE – the response rates are very low, these seem to focus on only the disatisfied, while the satisfied are the silent majority. So need to get response rates up (mentioned there has to be a perceived value for the student in completing the OUE). Is a pointer towards getting the report finished.
