AUN-TEPL Webinar Series

Here is a space where members of the ASEAN University Network (AUN) can research, practise, and share knowledge within a learning community. In particular, this community will be focused on the field of personalised learning and the myriad technological tools. which can help us to leverage each student’s unique needs, preferences, and level of competency so as to increase the effectiveness of learning. In order to provide meaningful personalised learning experiences through the use of technology, we are constantly looking for best practices, technological tools or pedagogical approaches, or simply to deepen our understanding of TEPL and its possibilities.

 

Through the AUN-TEPL Webinar Series, we will have opportunities to hear from educators and experts who share their valuable knowledge, research and experiences on a range of topics in the TEPL domain. We began in April 2020 with the topic of ‘Creating Effective and Impactful Instructional Videos’, one of the most commonly used modes of content delivery to facilitate online, self-paced or differentiated learning. In this first webinar, faculty members from the different fields of language, medicine and digital arts in Mahidol University shared their experiences and tips on video creation. Next, we were introduced to the feedback system which was deployed to support competency development in the area of Information Literacy in Mahidol University. This was followed by a sharing by the Singapore Management University about its ongoing effort to develop a university-wide learning outcomes feedback system which serves to track, collect comprehensive feedback and facilitate the mastery of a suite of 21st century skills for every graduate.

 

Please follow our event updates as this webinar series continues to curate these live webinar sessions for the AUN community. Engage the presenters in the Q&A sessions, hear experts and fellow practitioners share their insights, and find out how you can be involved in the educational research collaboration in this thematic network.

 

We are glad to share with you the recordings of past webinars below.

Launch of the AUN-TEPL Resource-sharing Community

08th Oct 2020
10.00am - 5.00pm (SGT, GMT+8)

Singapore Management University, together with co-leads Mahidol University (Thailand) and University of Malaya (Malaysia), is the leading the ASEAN University Network Technology-Enhance Personalised Learning (AUN-TEPL) Thematic Network with the mission of leveraging the potential synergy and data economies to improve students’ success through TEPL methodologies, collaboration and forming alliances to tap on the potential of big data. 

 

As part of the key initiatives of propagating the use and exchange of digital resources, the AUN-TEPL Resource-sharing Community was launched by the Chairman of AUN-TEPL, Associate Professor Lieven Demeester on 8th Oct 2020 at the Learning Innovation Festival webinar.

Enabling the Educational Ecosystem for AUN-TEPL's Success with MERLOT's Open Educational Services

Learners’ access to quality educational content multiplies the power of faculty teaching. MERLOT provides free and open access to online educational content across a diversity of academic disciplines and provides the open educational services to enable individuals, institutions, and communities to discover, share, adopt, and curate online educational content. The presentation will demonstrate how MERLOT can be incorporated immediately into your institutional strategies. Through the AUN-TEPL community’s collaborative efforts, institutions and individuals can accelerate their success in educating all they serve.

Forming the AUN-TEPL Resource-sharing Community

Instructors in the AUN+3 Universities design and create many excellent digital resources, especially so during this pandemic period. Since its establishment, the AUN-TEPL Thematic Network has set out to address missed opportunities of not adopting a common approach for AUN+3 instructors to: 


1) scan, select, and use digital resources developed at other AUN+3 members
2) review and endorse available digital resources
3) share self-developed digital resources with other AUN+3 instructors 


In this presentation, Professor Lieven Demeester will share the rationale of forming a community in sharing readily available digital TEPL resources within AUN+3. Professor Demeester will also lay out the strategy, support structures and plans in supporting members along this collaborative journey with our partner, MERLOT, and fellow AUN+3 members.

Practical Considerations in Selecting and Applying Creative Commons Licenses

Creative Commons (CC) licenses enable creators to share their work and allow others to use their material based on certain conditions. For instructors, adopting CC licenses facilitates making their own educational resources and digital learning objects openly available to other instructors and institutions in a standardised manner. How are Creative Commons licenses related to copyright? What are the different types of licenses and the key considerations? This presentation serves as a practical introduction for selecting and applying creative commons licenses as an essential part of the process for sharing Open Educational Resources (OER) on platforms such as MERLOT.

Design Choices in a University-wide Learning Outcome Feedback System for 21st Century Skills

19th Jun 2020
3.30pm - 4.30pm (SGT, GMT+8)

In line with Singapore Management University’s (SMU) commitment to delivering interactive, participative and technologically-enabled student learning experience, the university is developing and implementing an university-wide learning outcomes feedback system with the aim of nurturing broadly educated individuals, with depth of knowledge and essential workplace capabilities.

Design Choices in a University-wide Learning Outcome Feedback System for 21st Century Skills

In this presentation, Associate Professor Demeester discusses some of the design choices made, such as the integration across courses, learning outcomes structure, attainment scale, link with grades, use of peer assessment, integration with eLearn, cohort benchmarking, and the pace of rollout. Associate Professor Demeester will also be sharing the results from student and instructor interviews and surveys from the most recent round of implementation.

 

With the use of the university-wide learning outcomes feedback system, instructors will potentially be able to enhance the profile of the course by formally linking it to the SMU graduate learning outcomes, systematically identify areas where students are struggling in order to adapt instructional strategies and assessments and improving the rating in the Quality and Frequency of Feedback.
