Project News and Updates

Elizabeth Campbell Brown (Centre for eLearning, TLSS) and I met to start designing the SRL modules that will be launched in seven courses in September.

We piloted V1 of the SRL workshop today. Thanks to all the Science students who came and worked with me on it and to the Science Students' Association for their support!

This week, I met with Faculty of Education professor Katherine Moreau and graduate student Kaylee Eady to refine our research questions. I also met with Student Academic Success Service manager Jean-Luc D'Aoust to learn from his research and talk about ways SASS' existing resources could be integrated into this project.

The Self-Regulated Learning project's Evaluation Team met for the first time together to establish evaluation questions and start thinking about associated indicators. Our Practical Participatory Evaluation team members include students, professors, members of the Teaching and Learning Support Service's Centre for University Teaching, Centre for e-Learning, Student Academic Support Service (absent today), and the Faculty of Science's Office of Undergraduate Programs (absent today). Thanks to Professor Katherine Moreau (CRECS, Faculty of Education) and Julia Halar for guiding us through this process!

Today I met with students from uOttawa Science Students' Association to get their advice and suggestions on developing a workshop and modules that help students develop self-regulated learning skills. Among the suggestions: make it optional (SRL is about learner choices, after all), offer incentives, demonstrate value (evidence, make events engaging, students want to leave with having accomplished something, with a product), and market in creative ways. They also suggested making an app and partnering with other campus organizations (meetings with SASS are coming up). Thank you SSA!

My Chair in University Teaching project is rolling! The evaluation team is in place and we will be meeting mid-July with evaluation expert Katherine Moreau to guide the first steps in our Practical Participatory Evaluation. I'll be meeting with students from the Science Students' Association and manager of uOttawa's Student Academic Support Service to plan the workshop strategy, structure, and key components. More to follow!
