Early Years Childcare and Education:  Early Years Childcare and Education Glen Singleton and Jan Trattle College of West Anglia The Project:  The Project To develop Teaching and Learning materials for the Early Years Childcare and Education courses using WebCT including: Syllabus/Module Guides Handouts/Notes/workbooks PowerPoint presentations Links to Government Reports Links to Websites Self-tests and quizzes The WebCT site has been designed to show the progression route from the Diploma course to the Foundation Degree. The sub modules are organised by curriculum areas Slide3:  The purpose of these teaching and learning materials is to support Diploma in Childcare and Education students who are contemplating moving into Higher Education, plus the Foundation Degree students who have just entered HE. Diploma students can use the site to extend and support their knowledge, whereas Foundation Degree students should use the material as an aid to their research. It is expected that this will lead to further independent research by students on both courses. Slide4:  Materials for the two separate qualifications – Level 3 Diploma & Level 4 Foundation Degree in Early Years Childcare and Education are accessed separately from the Home page Home Page Content:  Home Page Content Student Tools Study Skills essay writing, presentations, plagiarism etc. Discussion board/Student email Student progress/grades Course calendar Revision papers Glossary of words related to childcare A guide to Harvard Referencing Tutors page – (hidden from students) Course Content:  Course Content Sub modules are organised by existing curriculum areas, however these will be updated on the release of the 2006/2007 syllabus Content within each module is based on materials supplied by the tutors Course Genie :  Course Genie Course Genie is an add-on to Microsoft Word Converts Word documents into web pages for your WebCT courses. Formats document using styles. Once the resource is put together in Word it is 'compiled' by Course Genie into a web page Slide11:  Navigation buttons Course Content:  Course Content Government reports and white papers relevant to Early years childcare & education have been linked to/or downloaded and added to the site to ensure students can access this information Useful Websites by providing links to specific sites, students can focus on the task rather than surfing aimlessly getting thrown from site to site Course Content:  Course Content PowerPoint presentations over 60 presentations used by the early years team for teaching have been added to the site Students can now access them as a resource for learning Self Tests and Quizzes over 30 quizzes and some self tests have been completed on a variety of subjects Quizzes :  Quizzes Originally created with a mixture of question types, including paragraph questions. WebCT is unable to automatically grade paragraph questions. Students wanted instant results Tutors unhappy about extra marking Text questions to be changed to Multiple choice, matching pairs, or tick boxes giving instant results with no marking Quiz Results:  Quiz Results gives tutors feedback on students strengths and weaknesses allows for differentiation Personal Development Journal:  Personal Development Journal Allows students to keep a reflective journal Developed in another WebCT course Course modules can be downloaded from one course and up loaded into another Uses the Discussion tool Instructions - Text and video versions Quiz on PDJ must be completed before journal released Materials can be selectively released:  Materials can be selectively released By date By course code By student Status Modules/activities completed So far apart from the PDJ, course materials are only selectively released based on course code/year. This area is currently being reviewed by Tutors as to how this may aid teaching & learning Crosswords - Revision tool:  Crosswords - Revision tool Originally created in Excel Part of Microsoft Office software navigation between cells clumsy negative student evaluation Eclipse Software free to download navigation not a problem Positive student evaluation Feedback:  Feedback From Students Students wanted instant results from Quizzes – not wait for tutor to mark them Foundation Degree students didn’t feel Quizzes/self tests were useful for their research Excel crosswords difficult to navigate Problems with printing Content modules wastes too much paper Feedback:  Feedback From Tutors Tracking students use of site – a useful tool Quiz results – gives tutors feedback on students strengths and weaknesses – allows for differentiation Tutors unhappy about extra marking generated by quizzes The ability to post grades for each module/unit individually gives immediate access to students However management of student results from the two qualifications in the one WebCT course may prove too cumbersome Problems with project:  Problems with project Late start of project has meant that initial co-ordination of faculty and development had not been as straightforward as planned Faculty holidays coinciding with late start of e-Learning Resource Developer. Initial difficulties in accessing sample resources for re-purposing, due to staff holidays and illness Due to late start - access to computer suites not included in time table/room bookings Arranging IT & WebCT training for faculty staff around busy teaching schedules For the Future:  For the Future Update the Diploma and Degree course content to comply with 2006/2007 syllabi (as soon as they are available) Complete changes to quiz questions Maintain ongoing faculty staff IT & WebCT training IT sessions need to be included in 2006/2007 time table Training for Students in the use of IT and to be able to access WebCT in college and at home
