SC 183 Learning Management Systems

The Professor as Presenter – Learning Management Systems

 Student Caring

PREPARATION IS KEY

  • David interviewed a number of professors at an online university and discovered that for each online class, the professors were paid for 300 hours to prepare their course.
  • Switching to a learning management system overnight is crazy!

TIPS

  • Be attentive to your time in addition to your students time.
  • It is not wise for you to be online and available 24 /7.
  • Spend large amounts of time setting up your course online and making certain that it is working, 100% in all areas.
  • Don’t assume that your current students, in an online class, are the only students seeing the exam as it becomes easy for them to share.
  • Our students today are very comfortable using these learning management systems.
  • Use your management system as your personal assistant.
  • Discover how the software can enable you to teach in new and innovative ways to improve learning for your students.

We welcome your comments, feedback and guest post submissions.

SC 182 How We Use Media

The Professor as Presenter – How We Use Media

 Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 1.25.57 PM

USE OF MEDIA

  • What are we putting up onto the screen in the classroom?
  • Our students are used to having control of their screens – now we are in control of the content.
  • Our students consume more media in a week than we most likely did in 6 months at their age.

TIPS

  • Just because the media is available, by no means do we have to use it in the classroom.
  • Why spend the time in class “showing,” when you can spend the time in class, “discussing?”
  • Make it clear to your class how you are going to be using media and what you expect them to do while the media is being shown.
  • Daniel doesn’t use a TED TALK as content, rather it is an introduction to the content.

RESOURCES

We recommend the resources produced by Bonnie on her website: Teaching in Higher Ed.

THE AUDIENCE IS LISTENING

Daniel tells a story about a teacher who’s tone of voice was always full of anger. (Must Listen)

  • How do our students interpret how we are sounding?
  • We can learn a lot from observing actors who specialize in evoking emotions in an audience by the way their voices sound.
  • As professors, we want our students to think a certain way.

When David teaches his safety lecture, he is dead serious. 

  • Dropping into a parental teacher mode when our students have not performed to our expectations can be very effective.
  • Always strive to connect with your class / audience.

Professors talking to themselves!

  • We can be a legend in our own minds!
  • We don’t want to exclude our students from our class!

How annoying!

  • Be aware of verbal patterns that may be driving your students crazy.
  • Because of our education and experience, we can use terms that our students have no idea what we are talking about. Give them permission to interrupt you.
