1 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May Stephen Hibberd, Director of Service Teaching, School of Mathematical Sciences Associate Director, CETL - Centre for Integrative Learning UNUP E-learning across international campuses E-learning Community Meeting - Video-Conference University Park (UNUP) Malaysia Campus(UNMC) Ningbo Campus(UNNC)

2 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Overview Use of E-support Implementation Outcomes of e-approach Introduction E-learning Development in Mathematical Sciences Overview Module Assessment with QMP Implementation E-learning – Opportunities for further development with UNMC & UNMC ?

3 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Background – Service Mathematics Provision for non-specialist mathematics students requiring mathematics. UNUP Foundation 2 modules / 100 students (per Session) Engineering / Science 2 cohorts First Year11 modules 850 students (per Semester) Engin., Built Env. Science Second Year 6 modules 550 students (per Semester) Engin., Built Env. Third/Fourth Year 4 modules 300 students (per Session) Engineering UNMC (parallel modules to UNUP) Foundation Developed for UNMC intake from UNUP modules First Year 2 modules/ teaching staff Engineering (2 cohorts) 350 students Second Year 4 modules Third Year 2 modules 60 students (optional) UNNC (parallel modules to UNUP) starting September 2008 Engineering Foundation Developing for UNNC intake with input from UNUP modules First Year2 modulesteaching staff (starting Sept 2009) (~ 50 students?)

4 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Use of E-support (WebCT and QMP) Provision of a facility to supply learning materials electronically Improve consistency and quality of student learning Managed learning environment Flexibility and access Communication Access to directed information and services To enable E-Support, E-Learning, E-Assessment and E-Teaching VLE Module teaching Student Global Support Student/ staff interaction Student learning pedagogy Learning map

5 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 URL: Username: melees2007 Password: melees2007 MELEES outcomes i)the establishment of a learning environment offering support resources, assessment and module-specific information; ii) promoting active self-learning of students to supplement lectures; iii) providing a range of materials reflecting the diversity of intake abilities in mathematics; iv) broadening the range of learning and support opportunities for students; v) enable teaching staff to share and develop resources; vi) improved communication with students, teaching staff and their client schools. Mathematics Electronic Learning Environment for Engineering and Science

6 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Support materials: HELM (workbooks / CAA) Mathtutor (video/quizzes) Special needs Module information Module materials: some shared with UNMC

7 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Pilot Use of Question Mark Perception (QMP) Computer-aided assessment (CAA) and Mathematics Significant background interest in using CAA within Mathematics in HE large classes pedagogic benefit of regular formative assessment simpler mathematical techniques lends well to CAA Ongoing development of CAA Mathematical Sciences have a substantial Service Maths provision looking to provide means of giving students increased feedback efficient and effective assessments

8 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Delivery Shell

9 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Operational Mid-Sessional tests delivered to Foundation students (~ 100students) 2 modules - January 2007 & 2008 Experiences: Worked well and without any significant problems Coped with special needs (easy to provide special test version) Some students had concerns over fixed numerical input (now revised) Now embedded into Foundation level modules; Extension of Computer Assisted Assessment to Honours Mathematics students ongoing

10 _______________________________________________________ School of Mathematical Sciences E-learning Community Meeting Wednesday 7 May 2008 Opportunities and Challenges - teaching across international campuses Implementation of Teaching, Learning and Assessment materials across Campuses (bandwidth & software - Staff interaction) Development of existing materials and implementation to meet internationalisation needs Critical appreciation of teaching and learning requirement in a multi-campus environment Inclusive teaching and internationalism ( student needs and corresponding teaching / learning / support approaches)
