IMS Global Learning Impact Awards 2009 Managing Project Work with eUreka: Create-Discover-Innovate Daniel Tan Sheryl Wong Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)
2 Introducing eUreka… It is aptly named to reflect the adventurous spirit in the pursuit and discovery of new knowledge and innovations eUreka calls to mind Archimedes famous phrase…. I have found it!
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 1.Facilitates constructivist-based learning through project work 2.Highly customisable and scalable platform 3.Unique pedagogical design to support knowledge creation and discovery learning 4.Good use of Web 2.0 tools in education for project work 5.Institutional platform for knowledge creation and management
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 1.Facilitates constructivist-based learning through project work Before eUreka - physical Logbook for documentation, face-to-face meetings With eUreka – online access, file repository for sharing, weblog for reflections Managing the work flow process….. Documentation of the project progress and sharing of resources Charting the learning journeys and reflections…..
Project Work Management System (PWMS) Top 5 reasons for eUreka 1.Facilitates constructivist-based learning through project work eUreka was designed and developed to: record the discovery learning journey in project work facilitate effective mentorship by the supervisor capture and manage the tacit knowledge derived and discovered Project planning Milestones and timeline Repository of project documents Supervision Project logbook/Journal Assessment Project work provides group synergy knowledge creation application to real-life situations Project work involves communication collaboration independent learning lifelong challenges
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 2.Highly Customisable and Scalable Platform standalone enterprise/campus wide PWMS, or fully integrated software plugin within LMS eUreka is integrated with edveNTUre, Blackboard LMS in NTU
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 3.Unique pedagogical design to support knowledge creation and discovery learning Instructional processes: scaffolding coaching Learning processes: planning and negotiating knowledge documentation communication & collaboration real world experiential learning reflections and self-discoveries
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 4.Web 2.0 tools in eUreka:4.Good use of Web 2.0 tools in education for project work discussion threads: scaffolding to document the discussion flow weblog: reflections on learning
Top 5 reasons for eUreka 5.Institutional platform for knowledge creation and management enterprise campus wide system to manage the tacit knowledge derived from the project work process documentation of first claim of Intellectual Property (IP) centralised platform to manage the internal quality processes of invention and innovation
Top 5 reasons for eUreka Create…. creative products through constructivist efforts – breakthroughs in processes, designs, prototypes etc….. project outputs that have commercial value or competitive advantage Create-Discover-Innovate
Top 5 reasons for eUreka Discover…. campus-wide system to curate its institutional memory and a constructivist platform for group participation and discovery learning Innovate….. Knowledge assets discovery and creation Create-Discover-Innovate
Usage Statistics… Since its maiden launch in September the adoption for eUreka has shown steady growth
Overview on eUreka… Online project work system extends the face-to-face interactions of supervisor-student Integrated with Bb - edveNTUre supports a holistic environment for knowledge learning and creation Institutional platform project planning and scheduling documentation of resources and findings collaborative work reflections on learning experiences Institutional memory of IP Intellectual property - creating, sharing, retaining, storing, using, updating and retiring knowledge Quick Summary…
Student- and Professor- centric Designed with the faculty and students in mind Effective Organisational Tool Relevant project documents and information organised in one site Online Access Easy and convenient to share resources Record their plans, progress, observations and reflections anytime anywhere Collaborative Tool for team work and cross boundary work Cross-monitor work flow processes, progress and achievement of milestones and tasks Overview on eUreka… Quick Summary…
