James "Art" Beveridge
25:49
Hello everyone. I am the Director of Distance Learning at Columbus Technical College in Columbus, GA.
Matt
26:17
Is there no space for exams in fields like accounting or anatomy and physiology? Those aren’t my fields, and I don’t give any proctored exams, but in working with programs like these, they seem annoyed at people outside of their field telling them what their assessment should be...
Debra
26:41
Not only final projects but a more robust learning experience can can consist of many individualized smaller projects.
Maha Bali
26:44
yes exactly... if you interact often you know their voice and their work
Maha Bali
27:01
yes @Debra
Maha Bali
27:22
thank u!
Maha Bali
27:24
yes
Debra
27:52
Thanks @Maha
Maha Bali
28:41
like with accounting ... u can do an exam with DIFFERENT figures each person
Liz Beaty
28:44
@Matt I have the same experience for Engineers. Professors want to see the formulas and work on the exam.
Matt
28:45
Thanks for the response. Good way to think about having that conversation with them.
Maha Bali
28:46
so they can't cheat that
Maha Bali
29:27
my experience is more upper level sciences can tolerate open book or take home exams... but not first years

Stephanie Richter
30:05
Other than "rediscovering" online learning periodically, what other lessons do we keep relearning or rediscovering from the history of edtech?
Debra
30:10
A large question bank, randomly presented and frequent quizzing also works. Questions can be written to build on previous knowledge. Also we write small projects that build on content from previous weeks weeks c

i like Stephanie's Q
Derek Snyder
30:40
A paradigm shift for higher education institutions that still needs in some ways to occur is a move away from “digitizing” the traditional classroom approach (.pdf versions of textbooks, 1 hours taped lectures, etc.) - have you seen a technology in particular in the last 25 years that has allowed us to move into a new paradigm for more student-centric, interactive, dynamic opportunities in this visual 21st century classroom?
Stephanie Richter
30:43
Yay! I can't wait!
Maha Bali
30:44
nice @Debra. what do you teach?
Derek Snyder
31:11
*virtual (not visual)
Maha Bali
31:36
lol re AI.... not speaking to educators lol
Matt
31:52
Yes first year faculty in STEM seem to value basic knowledge.
Stephanie Richter
32:10
If I can answer my own question, one thing I think comes up again and again is programmed instruction. Started with special textbooks, Skinner machines, now adaptive learning
Nate Angell
33:36
if anyone wants to ask a voice question, raise your hand
Derek Snyder
35:06
Thank you Martin.
Debra
35:12
@Maha —I teach physics, chemistry, biology, psychology

Carl Badenhorst
35:32
Talking about wikis. I’ve seen cases of educators setting an assessment where students edit and ‘correct’ wikipedia articles.
Maha Bali
35:37
i mean annotation existed before Hypothes.is but they were clunky. Hypothes.is has a superior UI I think
Maha Bali
35:58
yessss i love Wikipedia editing as an assignment
Bethany
36:04
@Carl, yeah there's a partnership with Wikipedia. I wish we could get that approved at my institution
Derek Snyder
36:24
Online learning arguably allows a more “choose your own adventure” approach vs a linear approach to achieving success for the same learning objectives for the collective.
Bethany
36:37
we just got Hypothes.is, I'm super excited for that this fall!
Nate Angell
37:24
That’s great Bethany. What institution are you at?
Bethany
37:34
SJSU
Bethany
37:41
San Jose State University, CA
Nate Angell
37:42
ah yes! welcome
Carl Badenhorst
38:01
@Bethany, me too. Wikipedia is seen as so ‘evil’ that we can’t even constructively use it.
Bethany
38:23
@Carl -that's so outdate thinking!
Nate Angell
39:24
Tricky edtech…maybe that’s a category
Nate Angell
39:43
more questions for Martin from you all?
Bethany
39:51
I think the Trickster is a useful metaphor for us!
David Valdes
39:55
Are there any experiments that show humans preferring to work with AI over working with a human?
Nate Angell
40:23
That’s a great Q David. Would you like to unmute and ask it in the next pause?
Karen Jankowski
40:27
Yes, STEM needs basic foundational knowledge, a blend of facts and language, logic and critical thinking skills
Bethany
41:19
Someone I know somewhere has created a virtual public speaking simulation with AI bots in audience giving reactions.
David Valdes
41:38
That's interesting. Wonder how we could apply that to education.
Bethany
42:06
This is kind of like AI pets in Japan
Bethany
42:12
little robot pets.
David Valdes
42:15
If proctors were AI would humans feel safer taking a test? Hmmm.
Bethany
42:22
lol

Steven Rogg
43:03
If I were an AI bot, I wouldn't tell you.
David Valdes
43:19
Thank you Martin!
Bethany
43:29
anyone remember that Twitter incident?! Where they had to take the bot down because it became a racist horrible nightmare?!
Maha Bali
43:44
yessss i remember that one Bethany
Maha Bali
43:58

Maha Bali
44:02

Gwen Garrison

Thank you!
Carl Badenhorst
44:26
@Bethany I remember that Twitter incident
Sharon Gray
44:27
@Bethany Yes! It "learned" from what it read...unfortunately.
Bethany
44:29
analogue is still good
Maha Bali
