DEE 2009 Cardiff Standardisation & Flexibility in Teaching Martin Diedrich Imperial College Business School
2 Need for Standardisation Ensure consistency: across different modules; same module different delivery venues. Two forces: quality of learning experience; economy of delivery. Creativity of teacher? Technology?
3 Commercial Pressure Delivery at larger scale: multiple classes; multiple locations; repeated over time. How to develop materials? How to ensure consistency? Role of teacher?
5 Questions How much time to prepare? How effective for student learning? How scalable? How transferable?
6 Technology Two main innovations: VLE for student interface; LCMS for material development. Learning Content Management System (XML) write into templates; compile from pool of shared materials; range of roles (author, lecturer, tutor, …); one source, multiple outputs.
7 Sample: A Scalable Delivery Unit Week 3 of Finance 101 Shared weekly structure for all modules; pre-session materials via VLE, common format; background reading for lecturers/tutors; skeleton slides for lecturers, plus background notes; core case for lecture; free exposition of fixed case; exercises via VLE, plus notes for tutors; post-reading & backup materials via VLE.
8 Creativity? Lecture Session open delivery, different in different venues; but common core case; common backup materials Lecturer as moderator Materials access shared pool before session; return added materials after session.
