HERDSA national webinar series: Increasing student engagement, satisfaction and learning through pre-class activities
Thursday 11th November 2021 12.00-1.00pm AEST

Student preparation for in-class practical experiences enables students to confidently and competently apply theory to practical activities. Despite developing quality preparatory resources, most students were choosing not to engage. Associate Professor Jennifer Wilson therefore repackaged the resources into a series of gamified, online, adaptive, laboratory preparatory modules (GOAL-PMs) to successfully increase student engagement, satisfaction and learning in her Biochemistry course laboratory sessions as measured by system metrics, student survey and focus groups. The GOAL-PMs supported deeper learning with students asking conceptual questions (e.g., “why?”) during class instead of procedural questions (e.g. “how do I do this?”). Associate Professor Wilson has expanded this approach into her course content and other courses at student request. The GOAL-PM intervention promotes improved preparation and performance for classes requiring prior knowledge. Register at https://www.herdsa.org.au/herdsa-webinar-series

Call for Book Chapter : Paradigms In Remote And Online Language Learning: Studies From Higher Education Across Asia
Book chapter abstract submission is 30 November 2021

The purpose of this edited book is to explore new paradigms in remote and online language learning in the higher education context across Asia. Increasingly in a globalized COVID-19 pandemic situation, education systems have been greatly impacted, forcing both educators and learners to delve into remote learning alternatives and explore multiple online platforms to continue with language learning vis-a-vis second language and foreign language without drastic disruptions. The book will solicit and address conceptual chapters, chapters with an educational practice and pedagogical thrust and empirical research chapters. The deadline for abstract submission is 30 November, 2021.
