Jenny Game

This is strange - speaker's name not joined?
Jenny Game
10:56
Does anyone have a contact number?
Yvonne - UC
12:06
Do we have a time zone thing happening here - Qld is on different time to NSW and ACT for example?
Jenny Game
12:32
Good point
Kathy Egea
12:37
that would make sense
Renee Ross
12:49
good thinking Jenny!
Narin
12:53
yes
Helena
13:00
Ah, it says AEST not AEDT
Narin
13:14
1 pm melb/syd time
Jennifer Manning
13:18
yes, the Eventbrite invite today cites the AEST time not the ADST
Kathy Egea
13:53
AEST is 11am
Kathy Egea
13:56
now
Jackie Hammill
17:47
I'm in Melbourne, so 11am QLD is 12 noon here...
Jackie Hammill
20:17
I looked back at a blurb for this and it says 1pm...Do we all have the time wrong?
Jackie Hammill
21:14
So maybe for Melbourne and Sydney people this doesn't start until 2pm...
Maurizio Costabile
21:25
The follow up email said 12 noon AEST?
Maurizio Costabile
21:34
Which is 11.30 Adelaide time for me
Jackie Hammill
23:02
Okay so another 40 minutes until the start.
Yvonne - UC
24:11
Yes and 12 noon AEST is 1pm ADST which applies to me in Canberra as well as Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia and Norfolk Island. Oops :)

Yvonne - UC
01:03:06
Hello Kerry - you have certainly had an eager crowd - many of us where and have been here since 11am your time :)
Maurizio Costabile
01:03:29
we cant hear you?
Alice Brown
01:03:40
I'm able to hear
Yvonne - UC
01:03:41
I can hear
Barbara Hadley
01:03:50
I can hear you
Maurizio Costabile
01:03:50
OK now
Helen Massa
01:04:41
Yes Jen
Yvonne - UC
01:04:41
love that picture
Laurine Hurley
01:08:42
we hear you!!
Alice Brown
01:08:49
We all need to take one of these photos LOL!
John Weldon
01:14:51
someone breathing heavily into their mic? can we ensure we're all on mute?
Jasmine
01:16:17
John, I wonder if the noise mey be crickets/insects on the lovely Mt Tamborine haha :)
Alice Brown
01:16:19
Are we referring to an oncampus course and cohort only here....or are online student required to turn up and engage with physical labs?
Barbara Hadley
01:17:48
Alice this also includes virtual labs for off-campus students.
Alice Brown
01:19:31
Perfect thanks
Yvonne - UC
01:21:58
Were there considerations on how humour works for different cultural understandings?
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:22:31
@Yvonne, yes.
Jane Pittaway
01:22:34
Good point Yvonne. I find Australian humour is often too subtle to translate.
Peter Swedlund
01:23:03
Australian and subtle, that's funny. :-)
Samantha Haley
01:23:06
Which quiz platform was used?
Alice Brown
01:23:26
Hmmmmm I need to explore how humour enhances engagement :)
Jane Pittaway
01:23:34
Perhaps it's just my humour Peter!
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:23:39
@Samantha, embedded activities platform
Laurine Hurley
01:24:22
As a WiL person, this is what I REALLY love to see!
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:26:10
@Samantha - sorry. In Smart Sparrow, the activities are part of the platform. In the next platform, it also had embedded activity creation tools.
Samantha Haley
01:26:32
Ah, Smart Sparrow - thanks!
Sue Sharpe
01:27:07
It looks like the platform Smart Sparrow used is Rise from Articulate 360
Leah
01:27:07
The second platform is Articulate Rise I believe :)
Barbara Hadley
01:27:22
And Articulate Storyline
Helen Massa
01:27:31
Thank you @Laurine, making the implicit embedded WIL outcomes and connection with individual student's employability explicit to the students were key objectives for Jen and the team.
Sue Sharpe
01:27:42
It's really easy to use Rise, highly recommend
Maria DeSensi
01:28:55
Looks great
Jasmine
01:29:01
That was so good! How engaging!
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:32:06
In the pilot 16 complained about being sent back to the start, but 22 said they loved/appreciated it.
Laurine Hurley
01:32:49
is there any correlation between the # of attempts and final unit outcome?
Leah
01:33:03
That's pretty cool feedback
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:33:17
No. We didn't measure change in marks because they had always got full marks from copying off their friends outside class.
Laurine Hurley
01:33:23
thanks
Alice Brown
01:36:33
Yeah...lots of students really value a progress bar
Laurine Hurley
01:38:26
yes that is a real bummer
Yvonne - UC
01:40:33
I'm glad you got that feedback early on - it should be standard practice in online activities - particularly where completion requires watching to the end of a video and readingthe transcript doesn't count - Ive engaged in sessions like this where I have to mute the speakers and cover videos to let them play out so I can progress - when all I need to do is read the text marterials.
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:42:40
@Yvonne, we highly discourage anyone from requiring someone to watch a video. There is more than one way to learn and people may bring the knowledge with them before starting.
Laurine Hurley
01:44:24
the WIIFM (what's in it for me) approach usually works well.
Jane Pittaway
01:45:42
My BIG question: how did you find the time to develop these resources?
Laurine Hurley
01:45:55
@Jane.. yes!!
Laurine Hurley
01:47:31
what did you do with students who didn't 'pass' the pre-lab? did they do a lab at all?
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:48:04
@Jane as Jenny said, it takes a team. That said, everyone on the team has donated many, many hours because it also increased our engagement, satisfaction and learning šŸ™‚
Yvonne - UC
01:50:01
so you have implemented for first year? where yu hadn't initially identified an issue - the sophomore effect you started with. Is there a risk that this will compromise the impact?
Kathy Egea
01:50:10
can we have the references up again please
Rachelle Singleton
01:50:15
what about student workload...did you have a clear idea of how long it 'should' take students to complete the online labs before attending? Did some students take a lot longer to complete...some said in the negative feedback that they were time consuming.
Lisa Beccaria
01:52:29
Are you running both online labs and face to face labs?
Laurine Hurley
01:52:56
this engagement in 1st year might work to prevent some of the "sophomore effect"?
Jane Pittaway
01:53:11
DO you think if all practical-based units in a course use gamification for pre-labs that this students will get sick of it?
Ulrike Kachel
01:53:17
What kind of support and how much did you receive for the development?
Barbara Hadley
01:53:39
Lisa each lab module gives an option to complete just as a prelab version and then attend lab, or choose the optional to complete the entire lab virtually.
Samantha Haley
01:55:31
Thanks! It was a very useful session!
Leah
01:56:20
Thank you, very interesting!
Kathy Egea
01:56:52
yes so good to see - especially the just in time feedback from the students
Mary-Ann Shuker
01:57:15
@Kathy the powerpoint slides and recording will be on HERDSA Webinar series page in a week or two. Sorry my computer won't play with me to grab them now
