July 2015

The Network of Academic Programs in the Learning Sciences (NAPLeS) are currently finalizing a series of new interview and short presentation videos, uploading today Jim Pellegrino’s interview and talk on “Assessment and Evaluation in the Learning Sciences” at http://isls-naples.psy.lmu.de/intro/all-webinars/pellegrino_all/index.html.

This will be followed by contributions of Gerry Stahl (July 16), Michael Jacobson (July 23), Susan Goldman (July 30) and Baruch Schwarz (August 6).

NAPLeS is part of the educational mission of the International Society of the Learning Sciences, a network of PhD. and master‘s programs in the Learning Sciences founded at the 2012 ICLS meeting hosted here at the University of Sydney. The overall mission of NAPLeS is to foster high quality Learning Sciences programs internationally through several mechanisms that support teaching and learning. More information at their webiste.

MJ-Talk-IMG_0084.jpgOn August 14th Professor Michael Jacobson will present "Beyond Failing to Learn: transforming science education", a Royal Society of New South Wales Free Lunchtime Science Talks, as part of the Sydney Science Festival 2015 at the University of Sydney.

"We are going through a major transition in our ability to understand the complexity of our world, one that rivals the move from Roman numerals to the Hindu–Arabic system we use today. This transition stems from the power and ubiquity of computers, which allow scientists to study and understand the behaviour of complex physical, biological and social systems in new and exciting ways. Opportunities are opening up for learning science that actually draws on what kids these days naturally do — play computer games and engage in virtual online worlds. These methods can be adapted for the classroom, which has the potential to transform the way we teach science."

This free talk will take place at the University of Sydney Business School, CBD Campus, Level 17, 133 Castlereagh Street, from 12.30 to 1.30pm on August 14, 2015. More information at here.

Leppink100.jpgOn July 29 CoCo and STL will host a special Research on Learning and Education Innovation seminar - In search for an optimum: From regulated self-learning to self-regulated learning with Dr. Jimmie Leppink of Maastricht University, the Netherlands.

Empirical research inspired by cognitive load theory has resulted in a wide range of guidelines for instructional and assessment design. During my talk, I will discuss how these guidelines can provide a coherent framework for the development of a curriculum, coursework or an individual learning trajectory. Given that assessment methods and learners’ beliefs about these methods can stimulate or hamper learning, it is important to translate end terms of a program, course or trajectory into a coherent assessment program at an early stage. I will discuss how such an assessment program combined with appropriate learning analytics can help to stimulate learning through an enhanced self-regulation on the part of the learner. The talk will be followed by a roundtable where we will discuss what challenge(s) – in practical setting or research – are you dealing with in this context and you would like to discuss? If you wish to submit an abstract, please send no more than 250 words to j.leppink(at)gmail.com
