Within UK higher education there is a great deal of interest in the role of the on-line moderator (e-moderator). Many tutors new to on-line teaching, without the appropriate background or any experience of on-line learning, are now asked to contribute to the development of their institutions' on-line courses (e.g. Bennet & Marsh, 2002). While the i...

This paper identifies two important themes in a consideration of skill acquisition in information studies. First, the means by which students, in general, acquire competency in transferable skills such as information retrieval and information searching. Second, how information searching is a special ability that is facilitated by new technologies -...

The concept map is becoming a ubiquitous tool in education. In recent years there has been a growing interest in "diagramming" or "mapping" ideas to be learned (e.g., Jonassen et al., 1998). The approach has been championed by study skills proponents such as Buzan (1993). Maps of concepts and relationships have been used by many researchers and pra...
Article
This paper uses a theoretical framework for concept mapping as an instance of a learning environment - The Knowledge Arena, (McAleese, 1994, 1998a, 1998b) and examines it against an existing framework for active learning (Rich Environments for Active Learning (REAL), Grabinger, Dunlap & Duffield, (1998) The aim of the paper is to better understand...

I will start with a declaration of interest and prejudice. I have been for some thirty years a 'learning technologist', or what used to be unfashionably called an 'educational technologist'. I have observed and read books, chapters and papers by John Daniel, the author of this work, for about twenty years, since his days in Concordia University, Mo...

Article
Full-text available
In summary a concept map has certain characteristics. . meaningful relationships - the representations make sense to the learner. They may or may not be true - it is possible to have a raft of "un-true" meaningful relationships. In deed many learners do have such entities. . concept labels - the representation is a label or a "sign" for something t...
Article
There is mounting evidence that in the changing higher education system, students need to develop a wide range of transferable skills, together with a personal development plan to augment their subject based degree. To address this, Heriot-Watt University is developing a range of undergraduate credit bearing modules in study, communication and prob...
Article
Full-text available
Auto‐monitoring is the pivotal concept in understanding the operation of concept maps, which have been used to help learners make sense of their study and plan learning activities. Central to auto‐monitoring is the idea of a ‘learning arena’ where individuals can manipulate concept representations and engage in the processes of checking, resolving...

Article
This paper reports on the outcome of a seminar addressing issues in the exploitation of IT in teaching within Universities in the U.K. The seminar brought together experts with a range of experience in the use of educational technology, and focused on educational and organisational issues rather than on technical ones. Three surveys of the views of...
Chapter
In this book on designing constructivist learning environments, we offer a conception of why and how these environments should be used in higher education.
Chapter
This chapter reports on the general approach taken by recent intelligent tutoring work in Aberdeen. NoteCards was used as a hypertext system to capture domain specific knowledge. The theoretical stance for knowledge acquisition is constructivist.3 Knowledge was distributed over the surface of a hypertext net using concept labels and typed relations...
Chapter
An explanation of the way graphical representations of concept relationships can facilitate incidental learning is provided. The graphical interface, provided by the concept map cognitive tools (CASP, NoteCards, SemNet), indicates implicit relationships held or understood by users. Implicit or tacit knowledge is made explicit by cognitive tools.
Conference Paper
Most hypertext models assume a network metaphor consisting of information nodes with labelled or typed links to similar nodes. The nodes in hypermedia systems can be typed as text, graphics, moving images, or a combination of these three. The information content of such a system depends on the granularity or “chunk size” of the information units or...

Article
This paper begins with a description of the context and background of cognitive research into knowledge acquisition and representation for computer based training. The nature of concept maps is alluded to and examples are given of the ways that maps can facilitate knowledge elicitation. It is noted that: (1) the concept knowledge in this research i...
Article
In this Journal (24, 3, 1987 % background), Parkes has suggested a description for pictures in a visual database. While his work is a major contribution to describing computer‐controlled pictures in CBT, it raises some problems with regard to the linguistic underpinning, and his use of the term ‘understanding’ to describe the supervisory system. Th...

This paper follows the development of a simulation game designed to give practice to language assistants in explaining. The game simulates explaining in one's native language to students who are learning that language. There are competitive elements in the game and different versions are described. The Language Assistant Game (LAG) can be adapted t...
Article
Conventional authoring languages are no more than delivery systems for instruction. Authors need a way of representing their underlying knowledge structures so that: (a) they know the relationship between concepts and therefore they do not make unwarranted leaps or linkages between them; and (b) end‐users can see at a global level the interrelation...

This review extends that by Yorke (1977) in this journal reviewing staff development in tertiary education. It pays particular attention to the university sector in Britain but also considers more general developments in other institutions and examines the pros and cons of staff development. Key developments in Britain are the Hale Report (1964) an...

This short note reports on two studies that examined the relationship between density and vagueness and criterion measures of independent ratings with respect to lecturing. Lectures measured as being dense were considered hard going and received relatively low ratings for overall effectiveness. Lectures with a high proportion of vague words and str...

This paper summarizes an attempt to measure and detect "anxiety" or "arousal" in self-confrontation in a university teaching methods training programme. Self-confrontation arousal is caused by viewing CCTV recordings of short micro-lectures. Arousal detection is important as the use of video-recordings is an important element in the training provis...

Article
The work of this study resulted from two factors: a) the problems of giving feedback to the student teacher while he was on teaching practice or in microteaching; b) the relatively unstructured nature of this feedback when it was given. (Author/JA)
Article
Full-text available
Abstarct The term “ microteaching” has been quoted in a variety of contexts, but is most often applied to the use of closed circuit television to give immediate feedback of a trainee teacher's performance in a simplified environment. Among advantages claimed are the controlled and structured nature of the format, an economy of time and effort and a...
