Whiteboard snapped in the Limerick School of Art and Design.
I TEACH AT THE intersection of analogue and digital. Some of my whiteboard snaps prove the point.
I'm also trying to get students to read my online musings, especially when the practise leads to suggestions for independent learning. One important takeaway from this specific blog post concerns a specification that outlines how to earn academic credit for a piece presented to camera between 0930-1100 on Thursday, April 25, 2013. The percentage breakdown is illustrated on the whiteboard snapshot.
-- Five marks if the presentation happens with the presenter representing a mix of input from three to five people who are identified by name or nic during the presentation.
-- Five marks can be earned if appropriate content is cited and connected to an individual student who has nominated that content for inclusion in the piece to camera.
-- Ten marks can be earned if the information cited by the presenter is also available for reading and review in the LSAD Kinaesthetics Google Plus Community. Up to three marks (of the 10) can also awarded here for previous work noted in the G+ Community.
-- Two marks can be earned if interactions related to academic content have occurred with the remote student cohort in Clare Street, Limerick.
-- Five marks can be earned if any lecturer or any student in Clare Street offered a comment to the group content written in the G+ LSAD Kinaesthetics Community.
This marking standard reflects an academic imperative that I believe needs to be in place to ensure our third level degree students can actively respond in environments featuring internet video. I believe this is a standard feature in the workplace of the future. In fact, it's happening already.
