Zoom is a programme for distance meetings and teaching. Zoom will replace Adobe Connect at the University of Vaasa from autumn 2018. During the course, you will learn how to start using Zoom and you will get familiar with the basic functions and how to use Zoom for teaching and meetings. With Zoom you can share content (for example a PowerPoint presentation), record meetings or lectures on your own computer or to a cloud service, discuss together with all participants or in small groups, and share links and discuss in the chat. 

 

Bring your laptop or mobile device and a headset with you if possible (BOYD=Bring Your Own Device). Install Zoom on your work computer before the course through Software Center (employees at the University of Vaasa). Instructions in English: https://it.uwasa.fi/guides/en/all/How+to+Use+Zoom. From the link above, you can also find instructions for installing the program on your private computer or if you are an employee of some other organization.

Zoom on etäkokouksiin ja opetukseen käytettävä ohjelmisto, joka korvaa Vaasan yliopistossa Adobe Connectin syksystä 2018 lähtien. Tällä kurssilla perehdytään ohjelman käyttöönottoon, perustoimintoihin ja käyttöön opetuksessa ja kokouksissa. Zoomin avulla on mahdollista mm. jakaa sisältöä omalta koneelta (esim. PowerPoint esitys), tallentaa kokous tai luento omalle koneelle tai pilvipalveluun, keskustella kaikkien osallistujien tai pienryhmien kesken sekä keskustella ja jakaa linkkejä chat-keskustelualueella.

 

Ota mielellään mukaan kannettava tietokone tai mobiililaite sekä headset (mikrofoni+kuulokkeet). (BYOD = Bring Your Own Device). Asenna työkoneellesi jo valmiiksi Zoom-ohjelmisto sekä sen Outlook-lisäosa Software Centeristä (Vaasan yliopiston henkilökunta). Löydät alla olevasta linkistä myös ohjeen Zoomin lataukseen muiden korkeakoulujen henkilökunnalle tai omiin laitteisiin. https://it.uwasa.fi/guides/fi/all/Zoom-ohje

The ability to search literature becomes more important as the students progress through their studies. The library plays an essential role in offering courses for students and the possibility to book a tutorial. Optimally, this is done in cooperation with the units at the university/university of applied sciences. Therefore, it is useful for the teachers to know the level of students’ information retrieval skills. In this lecture, a survey of 95 ÅAU students writing their Bachelor’s thesis in autumn 2017 will be presented. What do the students know and which are the problems they face? We will also discuss the role of the academic teacher. How could teachers support students’ information retrieval skills?

 

The lecture is part of the higher education pedagogy course HELLA: Digital literacy and information resources, 5 ECTS, HP00BQ07, but other participants are also welcome.

20 participants will be accepted to the pilot course Curriculum leadership, upon application. The participants will be chosen in a lottery, but there will be participants from every higher education institutions involved in the project. The application order is not significant for acceptance to the course.

 

 

Learning objectives

 

After the course the participant will be able to

  • explain how curriculum leadership is constructed pedagogically
  • analyse and specify the curriculum leaders’ operational environment and relations between interest groups
  • study one’s own role and different interactions within the organization

 

Content: The course deals with curriculum leadership in higher education institutions. The curriculum leadership is considered as a divided and deliberative phenomenon that emphasises collegial collaboration and the responsibility that curriculum teachers and leaders share. The curriculum leadership is therefore approached as a multiple and multi-layered phenomenon. Interactions are studied from a societal, organizational and individual point of view.

 

The course uses participatory teaching methods and therefore, one objective is to develop participants’ own learning and thinking, and let this be an instrument for developing the whole society.

 

Teaching methods: The course consists of starting and closing seminars, small group meetings and expert lectures. The small groups consisting of participants from different organizations play an important role in the course. Exchanging practices is possible in the small groups where participants’ understanding of different practices also is challenged and extended.

 

The reflective and research based angle on the course is based on the principles of collaborative teaching.

Active participation in lectures, small group discussions and completed exercises. It is possible to participate in the course remotely.
