Correct Survey link - sorry
Brett Christie
01:09:30
Anybody else use peer mentors in class?
Erik Wasinger, CSUC
01:09:56
I do - Intro Chem for STEM majors
Brett Christie
01:10:35
What DON’T you do Erik??
Erik Wasinger, CSUC
01:10:44
Sleep.....
Brett Christie
01:11:22
As always, will send slides and recording out in the afternoon and will place them at http://plc.csuprojects.org
Brett Christie
01:11:50
Just so you don’t worry about any url’s going by too quickly
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:12:14
Thanks Brett
Adam Sanford
01:12:42
I may have missed this - TBL? What does this stand for?
Chris Endy
01:13:18
Team-based learning
Adam Sanford
01:13:30
Thanks!
Brett Christie
01:14:34
SLOs = student learning outcomes, in case not obvious
mary paul
01:14:46
:)
Brett Christie
01:14:49
LMS = learning management system (Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, etc)
JP Bayard, CSU ATS
01:15:06
Brett speaks another language!
mary paul
01:15:24
LMAO
Brett Christie
01:15:29
Just not french!
JP Bayard, CSU ATS
01:15:35
How about HHT?
JP Bayard, CSU ATS
01:16:35
Happy Hour Time
Adam Sanford
01:16:42
Yes. Last spring I instituted a semester mid-year survey.
Adam Sanford
01:17:00
I asked the students what was working, what was giving them problems, and how I could help them succeed.
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:17:01
Yes, I often do a mid-semester survey.
Barbara Gonzalez
01:17:03
Yes. Actions for Success Survey after each major exam.
Kim - Math, CSUF
01:17:03
my students are in the middle of a survey right now via Google forms
Sheela Pawar
01:17:10
I often give students a mid semester survey in week 3.
Adam Sanford
01:17:28
I learned that students really want to be able to give input; if something’s frustrating them, giving them a voice is critical.
wkymmell
01:17:31
Yes, I do an end of semester survey in each class and the students are very constructive in their comments.
Kristen Tudor
01:17:32
Yes. I used a similar format to the course eval but in mid semester. It helped to shape the second half of the semester.
Barbara Gonzalez
01:17:45
Actions for Success is just the title I give the survey.
Adam Sanford
01:17:55
It’s not quite a survey, but I also institute a goal-setting adult learning activity that they have to review and adjust three times during the semester.
Sheela Pawar
01:18:10
I think the most helpful part of mid semester surveys is that it helps students to know they have a say in how the course is taught.
Tianqin Kelly Shi_SJSU
01:18:15
mid-sem survey to allow changes in the same semester. Students prefer extra credit to complete the survey
Kim - Math, CSUF
01:18:15
I learned that students will find a way to accomplish a task even I'd my suggested method doesn't work for them
Kathy Fernandes
01:18:16
Love that meta-cognitive reflection after each exam.
mary paul
01:18:35
I give a survey every two weeks based upon this research:
mary paul
01:18:38
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02602938.2014.956282
Adam Sanford
01:18:39
I am doing research on that with Stacy Smith at Clemson and another colleague of ours who’s just finishing graduate school - the goal-setting exercise.
Barbara Gonzalez
01:18:59
Data from survey informs about student perceptions of their own study strategies and informs instructor of the resources and pedagogies that may not be as productive for student success.
Kim - Math, CSUF
01:19:07
I agree with Adam that students clearly like being given a voice for their opinions
mary paul
01:19:44
control-value Theory
Adam Sanford
01:19:47
The students who do the goal-setting exercise often get really stressed out, though. The idea of making a list of everything they need to do to succeed makes some of them short out.
Chris Endy
01:20:10
Adam—how do you help students work through that stress? Any tips?
Adam Sanford
01:20:49
I’m still learning myself, Chris - many times it requires that they come to office hours and go over it. They can’t believe that the assignment is so simple - this is another thing Stacy and I and our colleague Traci are working on, that students just do not believe that this is all there is.
Adam Sanford
01:20:59
They are always looking for the “catch” or the “trick.”
Adam Sanford
01:21:28
That’s something the three of us are looking into doing research on as well, this type of student stress.
Brett Christie
01:22:07
Remember, the linked items you see in the slides can be accessed from the slides that will be shared out soon.
Chris Endy
01:22:24
Thanks Adam. I look forward to reading more about your work!
mary paul
01:23:30
when I know. lol.
Adam Sanford
01:23:36
We’re in the very preliminary stages, but thanks!
Adam Sanford
01:25:53
Yeah, we have trouble understanding that not everyone loves this stuff.
Brett Christie
01:26:18
Good point, faculty/we are atypical population in some ways
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:30:59
Great upward trend.
Brett Christie
01:32:44
Interesting to see how the prominent cloud aspects changed
Adam Sanford
01:35:00
Do you scaffold the collaborative learning in some ways?
Katherine Chilton
01:35:35
It varies by campus, but I think most faculty do in some way
Brett Christie
01:35:49
JP!!!
Adam Sanford
01:36:56
Make sure you unmute your mic when you get into a room.
Adam Sanford
01:37:38
For anyone who needs the slide:
Adam Sanford
01:37:39
What questions do you want to ask about your students?Tip: think of the habits of mind that are important for student’s success in your course or discipline:What could you do with this information to improve your course or program?
Kathy Fernandes
01:44:34
That was good! THanks!
Kimberly Norman
01:45:19
Dennis suggested getting an idea of students' confidence levels
Chris Endy
01:46:03
Adam) What do you WANT to know that you didn’t know before
Kathy Fernandes
01:46:14
Two aspects: Ask students about their confidence level with concepts in the course. And how much time (pre and post) how much time they are actually spending on the course.
Brett Christie
01:46:21
Thanks, Adam!!
Adam Sanford
01:46:47
Oh, the fixed mindset is SUCH a problem with my online students!
Brett Christie
01:46:57
non-fixed does not = broken (-;
Adam Sanford
01:47:09
Yes, I made my online students do a time requirement discussion this semester too.
Adam Sanford
01:47:58
And I pointed out that this was a 3-unit course requiring 9 hours and required them to state how much time they would spend per week, and designate specific times they would work on the course. Some of them really resisted that exercise.
JP Bayard, CSU ATS
01:48:17
Lots of pressure in teaching and learning to have data, so surveys tend to be popular. It is difficult to quantity the learning process, beyond grades
jzhang2
01:48:24
Good summary, Bridget! - Jinsong Zhang, Chico
Brett Christie
01:48:57
@JP. Yes, and how to make the surveys meaningful and then put to use.
Kimberly Norman
01:49:02
I like it
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:49:05
That online quiz is GREAT! Thanks for sharing the idea abou asking when they plan to work on the class.
Kimberly Norman
01:49:22
steal steal steal haha
Adam Sanford
01:50:12
The link to the “Are you ready” quiz is: http://www.unc.edu/tlim/ser/
Kimberly Norman
01:50:21
Thanks, Adam!
Carlos Torres
01:50:26
My queries would be guided toward improving the upper levels of Bloom’s taxonomy somehow, and improving the relevance of the Zoom discussion we have.
Adam Sanford
01:50:33
Hope it helps!
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:51:01
CSU Stanislaus has one I have used as well (are you ready for an online quiz?)
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:51:05
class
Chris Endy
01:51:31
Does anyone have a campus IR (Institutional Research) that actively and eagerly supports faculty inquiry into teaching and learning?
Brett Christie
01:51:32
And we have 14 campuses with Qualtrics. Others using SurveyGizmo, Monkey, a few with Tableau. See http://tools.csuprojects.org for campus survey tools
Adam Sanford
01:52:38
The assessment - how about a mixed-method approach? Ask them to write a reflection on their experience.
Adam Sanford
01:53:16
We need to get funding for these kinds of programs. I think that aiming it at administrators as “This is how you get student success/ quicker graduation rates” might work as a pitch.
wkymmell
01:53:28
Surveys are just that, they are not solutions only an attempt to define the problem.
Brett Christie
01:53:50
With good scholars, there’s always a “left to do” list. Research creates further research…but more informed.
Yvette Farmer
01:54:39
Would it be possible to share the data with a graduate student (even outside of history) to conduct secondary data analysis as part of their thesis research?
Samantha Francois East Bay
01:55:26
Thank you Bridget, Chris, Kate, Brett and everyone.
Chris Endy
01:55:28
Yvette—Yes. This could be a grew research project for a student. We are open to hear from interested people!!
Dennis Dahlquist Sac State Engineering
01:56:17
thanks great session
Adam Sanford
01:56:17
If anyone’s interested in that project on adult learning activities I’m working on, feel free to drop me an email at asanford@csudh.edu
