Active Learning strategies for online In this post I review key takeaways from the book “make it stick” and delve into its practical applications for educators—how instructors who teach face-to-face or online can help their students learn better, and for course and curriculum designers—how they can support learning through unique course design strategies. The book begins “…people generally go about learning in the wrong ways…” and authors describe how the methods we typically use to learn—reviewing material again and again to get that ‘A’ for instance, or practicing the same skill for hours on end until mastery, are essentially ineffective (pg. xi). They don’t work, and ‘make it stick’ explains why. Despite the title, “… Science of Successful Learning”, the book is more about the practical than the science though the authors do a fine job of referencing research to support their claims.

Student guest post: 8 ways students and staff can engage in remote collaboration A guest blog post from Sheffield Hallam University Business and Technology students working within the SMASH team. A student partnership group researching Social Media for Academic Studies at Hallam. As we enter into the second semester of university (or the last semester for final year students), with the cold weather upon us and deadlines looming – it is often difficult for students participating in group work to all be in the same place at the same time for meetings. The SMASH team (Social Media for Academic Studies at Hallam) last year wrote a blog post following their struggles of meeting up as a group after the #BeastFromTheEast disrupted travel across the UK. This year, the team have decided to build upon this post, and create more ideas and suggestions into tools for remote collaboration.

The 3 Instructional Shifts That Will Redefine the College Professor Twitter made news this summer when co-founder Jack Dorsey stepped back into the CEO job after Dick Costolo, a former stand-up comedian, quit. Problem was Dorsey already had a full-time job: CEO of Square, the payment processing company. In response, Twitter and other social media lit up with criticism and jokes worthy of former CEO Costolo: how can Dorsey do two jobs at the same time?
