A Dynamic Approach to Implementation of Blue at Strathclyde

calendarWednesday, February 10th 2021, 09:00 AM - 10:00 AM Eastern Timezone70 days remaining

The University of Strathclyde will present on the approach taken to implement Explorance Blue through a 2-year project, preceded by University-wide consultation which built on years of previous experience, including a range of approaches and module evaluation pilots across the institution. We will also present the dynamic governance structure which has been adopted for the phased approach to ensure appropriate academic representation and effective collaboration with academic, teaching and professional services colleagues. Blue module evaluation is delivered via integration with Strathclyde’s Moodle-based VLE and adopters of the system at each phase have represented a wide range of disciplines over undergraduate and postgraduate modules, taught both face to face and online. Strathclyde colleagues will report on evaluation to date that is built in to inform subsequent implementation of the system.

Time: February 10, 2:00pm British Timezone; 9:00am Eastern Timezone

Presenters: Brian Green, Caroline Breslin, Jacqueline Jahn, Caroline Aitchison | University of Strathclyde

Two Roles, One Class: How to Rate a Secondary Subject Twice in One Form

calendarWednesday, April 14th 2021, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone133 days remaining

The Instructor Role and triggers were setup for team-taught courses with multiple instructor roles in the same course. While those tools are powerful, our situation required specific questions for roles and, for an individual serving in multiple roles in the same course, those questions needed to be available “twice” in the questionnaire. Additionally, while one role (Instructor) was evaluated by all students, a different role (Facilitator) needed to be selectable to just the students who had this instructor in small group. In this webinar we will present the unique situation we faced as well as illustrate the solution we came up with to allow an instructor to be evaluated twice in the same form.

Time: April 14, 2:00pm Eastern Timezone

Presenters: Christina Pomykal, Program Manager, UNC-Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy; Michael Lee Jones, Professional Services Consultant, Explorance
