Engaged Disengaged or Never Engaged
Engaged, Disengaged or Never Engaged This is Week 3 of the study session, and Census Date is 10 days away. At this point, you may be wondering what’s going on in your online subject: which students are engaging in study, those who may have already disengaged, and then, those who have never logged into your subject site. If you want to hear simple ways of discovering this information, then this session is for you! You will be guided through the Site-at-a-Glance report for an Interact2 subject site.

Writing good learning outcomes FBJBS
Writing good learning outcomes What is a good learning outcome? Why would we rewrite the ones we have already? Writing assessment tasks to align with learning outcomes can identify that the learning outcomes need to be rewritten. Maybe they are not at an adequate level to meet AQF standards. Maybe they are not measurable. Maybe they don’t align with the learning activities. Are they too vague, or too prescriptive? How many is too many? How do you get them changed anyway? Explore the answers to these questions, or bring your own. This session is presented by the Assessment and Quality leads from the Learning Academy, Division of Learning and Teaching. This session is for FBJBS.

Census Date and Personalised Nudges
Census Date and Personalised Nudges Census Date is soon coming – in fact, this Friday!! Today’s session guides teaching staff through the ‘native’ ability of Interact2/Blackboard Learn to send out Notifications to students who may need a nudge to keep going with learning activity. The session is very practical where you will use Retention Centre in one of your subject sites to send out a group or individually scripted email prompt to students.

Engagement and Mark: Do Subject Site Accesses Matter?
By now students in most subjects will have submitted their first assessment task for marking. As you review marks, this may trigger questions about the relationship between student site activity and their performance. This session will guide you through two different Site Analytics reports that make it easy for teaching staff to find students who, as one example, are very active in a subject site but whose grades may fall below average.
