Best Practices on MOOCs

09:50 AM - 10:30 AM Learning analytics for MOOC and blended courses – unlocking dynamic power of learning database to enable informed culture of learning environment

Ting Chuen Pong, Senior Advisor to the Executive Vice-President and Provost, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Education has gone through some transformative changes since the launching of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in 2012. The impacts of MOOCs go beyond just the offering of courses and content. MOOC platforms allow vast amount of data to be collected on the study patterns of diverse groups of students from around the world. Learning analytics on MOOCs allow teachers to better understand how students learn and how the delivery of teaching and learning can be improved. A visual analytic system has been developed at HKUST for visualizing video clickstream data and performing social network analysis of forum data from MOOCs. In the presentation, prof. Pong will share HKUST’s experience on using learning analytics to enhance the learning experience of students in MOOCs and blended learning courses on campus
  • Structuring relevant database from digital learning and social platforms for interpretation and optimization of learning processes
  • Translating data into actionable insights to monitor student progress, personalize learning experience and measure efficiency of online platforms

2:00 PM - 2:40 PM Measuring the un-measurable - assessing generic competencies through an evidence-based pedagogical driven online system

Cecilia Chan, Head of Professional Development, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching an, The University of Hong Kong
As the world moves towards knowledge-based economies, increased emphasis is being placed on graduates’ acquisition of generic competency along their disciplinary knowledge. In this presentation, a framework for the development of generic competencies based on the concept of “avoider” and “engager” on student approaches to learning in oppose to the well-known deep and surface approaches (Prosser & Trigwell, 1999; Lizzio, Wilson, & Simons, 2002) will be discussed.

We will also discuss how these skills can be assessed (if it should be assessed at all) and how can students document these learning outcomes as part of their learning process through a pedagogical driven online system.
