Keynote Presentation: Learning is an Epic Win

Why don't our learning platforms work more like a game? In the best designed games, our engagement is perfectly optimized: we have important work to do, we're surrounded by potential collaborators, and we learn quickly and in a low-risk environment. When we're playing a good online game, we get constant useful feedback, we turbo-charge the neurochemistry that makes challenge fun, and we feel an insatiable curiosity about the world around us. None of this is by accident. In fact, game developers have spent the past three decades figuring out how to make us more optimistic and more likely to collaborate, how to make problem-solving more fun and social, and how to satisfy our hunger for meaning and success. All of these game-world insights can be applied directly to transform the way we learn, solve problems together, and develop 21st Century skills; in this talk, Dr. McGonigal will show us how.

Designing Mobile, Location-Aware, Socially Networked Learning Assistants
This presentation reports on outcomes of a TLT Fellowship that developed a subject-based learning app for a keyword advertising course that leverages cellular technology, the contextual (location-aware) attributes of mobile technology, and social media. The goal was to make courses more dynamic and allow students to access content—and assistance with that content—when and where they need it. The app serves as a “learning assistant” that students can use in conjunction with a resident course. Initially, Jansen is collecting data in this course with the goal of identifying content and problem areas in the course learning.

The Evolution of a Large Enrollment Course

There are two truths about evolution on which most can agree: everything that has successfully evolved has evolved for a reason and evolution takes a long time. Large enrollment courses are not any different. With enrollment growing to over 1,300 and with a large number of students barely getting through the class, something had to change in Accounting 211...something big. This presentation will take attendees on an eight-year journey through Accounting 211’s evolution. Topics include hybrid course design, classroom flipping, learning styles, meaning making for non-majors, virtual labs and review sessions, student tools, and weekly road maps.

Digital Scholarship: How Digital Tools are Reshaping Academic Work

For centuries, one of the main goals of universities has been the production of new knowledge; the impact of digital tools on this original knowledge economy has been profound. The presenters will discuss the workflow of scholarship: find, store, organize, annotate, cite, archive, reflect, and share. Tools have developed in each of these areas that have affected not just how scholars do their work, but what is considered scholarly work at all. The presenters will discuss both the power and pitfalls of specific tools that have emerged to support scholarly work.

Flipping a Large Classroom: Students in a Class of 200 or More View Lecture Videos outside Class and Come to Class Ready to Practice the New Concepts They Learned
Flipping the classroom has been studied in many small-classroom settings with success. The presenter tried this in two “large” classes, STAT 200 and STAT 250. All the positives of flipping are present, but a large classroom setting presents some unforeseen difficulties, including dealing with a traditional lecture hall as the meeting room, less peer pressure to be prepared for class, and the difficulty of the course material overall. This session will discuss the process of flipping the classroom and the increase in student learning and compare student responses to the use of recorded lectures in and outside class.

Lumberjack iStan: Taking the Classroom into the Forest

Traditionally, high fidelity human simulation has been used to train health care providers. This presentation will describe the partnership among the Penn State Mont Alto nursing program, the Penn State forest technology program, and multiple community agencies which allowed human simulation to be taken into the forest. The simulated scenario of a tree harvesting accident allowed forestry students to practice “field” first aid and CPR skills, paramedics to strengthen their teamwork process, and nursing students to use their critical thinking skills in a mock emergency department. This simulation was positively received by participants and clearly enhanced their education.

Using Videoconferencing Technologies to Bridge Culture, Language, and Time-Zone Differences

The World in Conversation project has taken its face-to-face dialogues across the ocean so Penn State students can engage students in the Middle East. The presenters were initially reluctant to use videoconferencing technology because they saw the barriers it presented as impossible to overcome if they wished to meet the standards of face-to-face conversations. While things have not always gone smoothly, the presenters have been pleasantly surprised at their ability to have meaningful conversations that shift how students see their worlds and those of their conversation partners. Attendees can participate in a short conversation with students in the Middle East.

From the Classroom to the Field: Using Rich Media and ANGEL to Bring Real-World Examples into the Classroom
Learn how Cooley has teamed with Penn College’s Office of Instructional Technology to develop a rich media content package as a virtual field trip creating a more active learning experience. In Cooley’s Environmental Science class, field trips are part of the class activities, but nearly impossible to achieve in the distance environment. The solution is an online video series, “In The Field,” hosted by Cooley. Each “webisode” provides students with a unique field trip experience central to course outcomes. There is also an interactive online learning module, “The Cooley Cam,” presenting students with more personalized reinforcing material.

Games and Gamification: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Considerable attention has been paid to the potential impact of games on learning. One difficulty is finding or building games to support learning objectives. What if one could take the elements of a game that make it engaging and integrate those into a class to make it as engaging as a game? This idea is the focus of Robinson’s TLT Fellowship. Questions included: 1) How can game-like elements improve student engagement and motivation? 2) How can we design game-like elements to be instructionally effective? This session will discuss benefits and challenges of using game-like elements in classes.

The Future of Learning Spaces at Penn State

Many current classrooms were built to support the lecture method of teaching, where rows of students face toward, scribbling notes, with little peer interaction. Modern conceptions of teaching and learning envision a far more active and engaged classroom, with students learning from one another, and a shift of the instructor to facilitator. Outside the classroom, libraries, labs, lounges, hallways, and virtual spaces are also recognized as places where rich learning takes place. This panel will explore new ideas about learning spaces. Each panelist will provide a different perspective, and the audience will be engaged in an exploration of solutions.

What's the Payoff? Assessing the Efficacy of Classroom Technologies on Student Attitudes and Grade Outcomes
Concerns when teaching large classes include fostering community and measuring comprehension of material. Use of student response systems (clickers) encourages student interaction fostering greater connectedness while providing instructors with information about student understanding. Lecture capture software can also be used to record class presentations for student review. This presentation will explore the effects of clickers and lecture capture software on students’ attitudes toward a large enrollment Introduction to American Politics course and grade outcomes. The findings both inform the use of technology in large enrollment sections and provide insight into the efficacy of these devices in classrooms of any size.
