Duke Online Learning Collaborative

Tue, 2018-12-11 20:00
Bostock 024
West Campus

Steve Grambow, a Duke faculty biostatistician, has created and implemented a new training program, Fundamentals of Clinical Research, a blended program model allowing physicians to learn about conducting clinical research. This new program has has been delivered for the first time in China. Grambow will discuss the blended model, digital technologies, lesson and assessment design, and how content was localized to enable better learning. The culmination of this project was a one week highly interactive experience delivered at Beijing Friendship Hospital where participants created and presented a clinical research project working while working in teams.

 

These meetings are part of the Duke Online Learning Collaborative (formerly the Distance Education Special Interest Group) and open to all in the Duke community with an interest in digital education and online teaching and learning.

BRITE Ideas: How can Data from Large Classrooms Improve Learning?

Tue, 2018-12-04 17:00
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

Many classes are growing in enrollment. One way teachers handle this growth is by increasing their use of technology. A concern about these two factors is how they affect the quality of learning. However, they are also an opportunity to collect and analyze large, high-dimensional data sets and conduct in situ experiments at scale. This talk will include both past and new work taking advantage of this scale. First, it will cover the results of applying mixed methods to a corpus of 332,829 wrong answers from students answering code-tracing, constructed-response assessments. Second, it will discuss the findings of using those results in an in situ experiment with over 900 students. This experiment automatically delivered hints while the students answered assessments. Third, this talk will present new work that collects data from multiple class tools and integrates them into a single data analysis pipeline, as well as potential research directions using this data source.

 

Light refershments will be provided. Please feel free to bring a lunch.

Wed, 2018-11-14 15:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work. This workshop will introduce the TIER Protocol, which outlines a specification and process for maintaining well-organized documentation and producing more reproducible research projects. An example of using the TIER Protocol in conjunction with the Open Science Framework will also be presented.

DVS Workshop: Tidying hierarchical data from the web with Professor Colin Rundel

Tue, 2018-11-13 15:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Gathering data from the web presents unique challenges to the researcher. Only rarely is the data we need available as a tidy rectangle that can be easily imported and directly analyzed. During this workshop we will discuss some of the common data formats (e.g. json, xml) and data sources (e.g. APIs, web scraping) as well as the tools / packages / best practices for ingesting these data using the R programming language.

Excellence in teaching: Supporting graduate student instructors

Mon, 2018-11-12 17:00
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

Presenters: Dr. Francisco Ramos, Assistant Dean for Assessment and Evaluation, the Graduate School and Dr. Hugh Crumley, Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs, the Graduate School

Trinity College and the Graduate School are deeply committed to the professional development of graduate students as instructors.  Our academic departments share this commitment, and often they request additional guidance to (a) structure graduate student skills development and (b) to assess the degree to which graduate students are developing as effective teachers. This introductory session explores such questions as:

  • What are your learning outcomes for graduate student instructors?  
  • What are some useful training models for new graduate student instructors?
  • How might a graduate student instructor self-assess his or her teaching?  
  • What are the most effective ways of delivering feedback to graduate students so that they can use it to improve their practice?  

This session is part of the monthly Assessment Roundtable organized by the Trinity College Office of Assessment. 

A light lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP in advance.
