Land Measurement - Session 1

  1. 1. Week 1
  2. 2. 2 This unit implements a Team-Based Learning method This is a l teaching method used internationally to improve learning outcomes:  You will see how this method is implemented in detail in the next couple of sessions
  3. 3. 3 Now, let’s get into teams… Follow these instructions for team allocation  Form a line, one person behind the other, in the computer room  Organise yourselves in alphabetical order of your first name
  4. 4. 4 Team allocation Now, we will give each person a number – so that we will have teams of 4 When this has been done sit in your new teams by your number  Sit in the general locations indicated on the board  Organise yourselves so that you are sitting in so that you can communicate easily
  5. 5. 5 Team name & Team Introductions Now, in your teams, work out a name for your team that you will feel comfortable with - just for this course … Next: introduce yourselves to your team members  Name, preferred name, email contact details, where are you from, what is your background?  Record names and contact details in the worksheet
  6. 6. Question: Why are you doing this course? Now, please sit apart from other people Make sure that you have a blank sheet of paper …
  7. 7. 7 On the blank sheet of paper ... Please write (clearly): A: M if you are male, F if you are female B: L if you are a local student, IS if you are enrolled as an international student C: Two reasons why you enrolled in this course (motivations) D: Two things you want to get out of the course (expectations) E: (if applicable) give the names of any previously experience you have with GIS Do not write your name on the sheet of paper! Data collected through this survey will be used to inform improvements at Inverness College UHI and could also be used in external publications and presentations. Individual responses will remain confidential and no individuals will be identified.
  8. 8. 8 Why are you doing this course …? Now:  crumple your sheet of paper into a ball, and  throw it to the front of the lecture theatre
  9. 9. 9 Why are you doing this course …? In your teams, summarise the results of your “random survey” of comments on the papers your team members have collected, regarding: C: Why people enrolled in this course D: What they want to get out of the course E: What previous similar courses they might have studied Pick one team member to report your “survey” summary to the class. Summarise the comments on the Worksheet (Step 2). Do not write on the individual sheets of paper you collected! I will collect all the anonymous sheets of paper at the end of the exercise. You will get the summary results in the unit review session. These results will be useful for you and will help us to improve the course.
  10. 10. 10 Class Introductions One person from each team please:  Give the name of your team  Introduce your team members by their preferred names  Tell us where they are from and a bit about their background  Report the summary results of your “survey”:  C: The main reasons why people are doing this particular course, and  D: The main things that people would like to get out of this course  E: What previous experience people might have with GIS
  11. 11. 11 Now we will collect all the sheets of paper  We will use these for our final unit review session
  12. 12. 12 You are here to learn ... I would like to hear your personal views about what you think you need for you to learn effectively in this unit …
  13. 13. Paper drawing exercise... First draw a bold diagonal line across your sheet 13 of paper, as shown…
  14. 14. Now, fold your sheet of paper into 3, as shown… 14 Paper folding exercise...
  15. 15. 15 What about learning ? For the rest of this exercise, use the clean side of the paper WITHOUT the line... On the FIRST fold of your sheet of paper, write: A: M if you are male, F if you are female B: L if you are a local student, IS if you are enrolled as an international student
  16. 16. 16 What about learning ? QUESTION 1 How would YOU answer this question? “The MOST IMPORTANT thing for ME is”: 1: Getting information (learning facts, principles, concepts) Write Q1, a number 1 and one reason 2: Learning how to use information and apply knowledge in new situations Write Q1 and a number 2 and one reason 3: Developing life-long learning skills Write Q1 and a number 3 and one reason Reason .... Why?
  17. 17. 17 Each is important… how do we best achieve each of these goals? QUESTION 2 “Which do you think that you can do effectively on your own (or in teams) OUTSIDE the classroom?” 1: Getting information (learning facts, principles, concepts) Write Q2, a number 1 and one reason 2: Learning how to use information and apply knowledge in new situations Write Q2 and a number 2 and one reason 3: Developing life-long learning skills Write Q2 and a number 3 and one reason Reason .... Why?
  18. 18. Learning facts, applications and learning how to learn... QUESTION 3 Which do you think is best achieved 18 IN CLASS, working with your classmates and with the lecturer? 1: Getting information (learning facts, principles, concepts) write Q3 and a number 1 and one reason 2: Learning how to use information and apply knowledge in new situations Write Q3 and a number 2 and one reason 3: Developing life-long learning skills Write Q3 and a number 3 and one reason Reason .... Why?
  19. 19. We have learned:  Why people have enrolled in this course  What people expect to get out of the course  What people’s learning priorities are. But ... what do you need to do to be successful? 19 The GIS part of this unit has 2 assessments:  A team assignment (a poster displaying a thematic map that will discuss later)  An individual assignment (a report on how the thematic was produced)
  20. 20. What do we need to DO to be successful? On the new blank sheet of paper write (clearly): A: M if you are male, F if you are female B: L if you are a local student, IS if you are enrolled as 20 an international student C: Two or three things you think you personally need to do for you to be successful in this course D:Two or three things you think your team members need to do for your team to work effectively and successfully E: Two or three things you think the lecturer needs to do to help you to be successful
  21. 21. What do we need to DO to be successful? 21 Again:  crumple your sheet of paper into a ball, and  throw it to the front of the lecture theatre
  22. 22. What do we need to DO to be successful? In your teams, summarise the results of your “survey” 22 (use the worksheet Step 3): C: Things people think they personally need to do for them to be successful in this unit D: Things that people think team members need to do for their team to work effectively and successfully E: Things people think the lecturer needs to do to help them to be successful You may think of things that your team could add to the results of your “survey”. Record these on your worksheet (Step 4) Prepare for a different person to report to the class
  23. 23. 23 A moment for reflection … Why have we started the course in this way? What do you think is the purpose of each activity?  Team formation process  Finding a name for your team  Motivations and expectations exercise  Introducing teams to the class  Learning content, applications, how to learn exercise  Things to do to be successful How do these contribute to the course?
  24. 24. 24 Another moment for reflection … Some observations on the way that this course will be delivered…  You will need to work in your teams in advance of our class sessions  You will learn a great deal from your team members, peer support is a large part of the GIS part of unit  You will learn a great deal through completing exercises that apply the GIS skills & knowledge to actual situations  This is not a conventional “I lecture, you listen” course – this course delivery is different…  You have just told me what is “my bit” and identified what is “your bit” (I will pull the information from today together and put this on our Blackboard course site .. More on this now).
  25. 25. 25 Individual preparation Check the readings and additional information!  These support the practicals  You will need them for assessment Check the Blackboard course site & your Email!  This is really important!  Announcements send to your IC student email and on the course
