TALES 3 – Enhancing Student Learning in Mixed-mode Teaching

Topic Date Time Venue
TALES 3 – Enhancing Student Learning in Mixed-mode Teaching October 9 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm Mixed-mode session
(ACC209 & Zoom)
TitleEnhancing Student Learning in Mixed-mode Teaching
Facilitator(s)Ms Bonnie CHIU(JOUR)
Dr Benjamin Luke MOORHOUSE(EDUC)
AbstractThe University has adopted mixed-mode teaching since 28 September 2020 to facilitate a flexible resumption of face-to-face instructions. While students are encouraged to attend their classes on-campus, those who are constrained by travel restrictions or quarantine requirements may join the classes online.

To support teaching colleagues in this endeavor, we have invited two experienced facilitators who had adopted mixed-mode teaching with positive student feedback to share their good practices. Specifically, Ms Chiu will talk about how she engages students on-site and online in effective synchronous learning through leveraging electronic resources in different classroom settings (e.g. lecture hall, classroom computer lab/studio); Dr Moorhouse will walk you through how he incorporates the approach of ‘virtual flipped classroom’ into mixed-mode delivery to enhance students’ participation in synchronous learning.

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:
  • Explore a number of asynchronous and synchronous e-tools to facilitate mixed-mode teaching;
  • Identify some tips of using the ‘virtual flipped classroom’ approach in mixed-mode teaching.
TimeFriday, 9 October, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
VenueMixed-mode session (ACC209 & Zoom)

TALES 4 – Collecting Evidence of Student Learning Performance through Digitally Supported Assessment

Topic Date Time Venue
TALES 4 – Collecting Evidence of Student Learning Performance through Digitally Supported Assessment October 23 11:00 am – 12:30 pm Online session via Zoom
TitleCollecting Evidence of Student Learning Performance through Digitally Supported Assessment
Facilitator(s)Dr Mathew HILLIER(Macquarie University, Australia)
AbstractDigital technology can help with the design and delivery of assessment by providing a means to gather evidence of student learning performance in the online and blended contexts.

This session will focus on three examples of using technology already available at HKBU to enhance assessment delivery and monitoring. This includes 1) using lesser known Moodle quiz features for automated formative feedback, 2) using Moodle reports to investigate the efficacy of quiz questions (analysis reports) and to monitor student activity (logs) and 3) exploring how to conduct peer assessment using Moodle tools such as the workshop activity.

The session will be presented by Dr Mathew Hillier, e-Assessment Academic from Macquarie University, Australia. Dr Hillier is currently an e-Assessment consultant to HKBU.

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:
  • Identify ways to use Moodle quiz for automated formative feedback;
  • Identify sources of evidence related to student engagement and activity in Moodle;
  • Implement online peer assessment using Moodle.
TimeFriday, 23 October, 11:00 a.m – 12:30 p.m.
