Discover evidence-based strategies for inclusive, student-centered learning space

This year’s theme – Evidence-based practices for the new era of student-centered learning, highlights educational practices for cultivating inclusive, engaging learning environments for all learners. Our keynote speaker, Rob Vanderlan at Cornell University, will discuss how Cornell’s Center for Teaching Innovation developed a strategy for boosting inclusivity and interaction in the post-pandemic era.

Learn about the best strategies to facilitate authentic, competency-based assessment  

Assessment must provide an objective, holistic, qualitative reflection of students’ performance and progress, instead of presenting a numerical grade. Authentic and competency-based assessments are considered the most effective approaches to address this, as they focus on measuring students’ success in skill-relevant and real-life situations throughout the entire learning process. So how can institutions implement these evaluation practices effectively in any course delivery modes and size?

Understanding this need, we’ve invited expert educators of Cornell University, Fort Hays State University, and Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg to share their success stories of implementing authentic, competency-based assessment.

Which sessions to attend?

- (Keynote) Assessment for lifelong learning: programmatic assessment to activate 21st-century competencies – Dr. Lambert Schuwirth, Flinders Schuwirth.

- (Live presentation) The Role of Feedback and Holistic Scoring in Building a Growth Mindset – Dr. Kim Chappel, Fort Hays State University

- (Live presentation) Personalized Tasks and Anonymous Peer Feedback in the Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering – Dr. Mathias Magdowski, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg

Explore how to cultivate a personalized learning environment that nurture career ready skills

Personalized learning has been considered effective in helping institutions foster inclusivity and accessibility, since it emphasizes student’s agency and autonomy in crafting their education. As online/hybrid learning is here to stay, implementing these approaches is indeed challenging. At inspirED 2022, you can pick up the best practices to take for effective implementation of personalized learning in hybrid/online classrooms.

Exchange ideas on increasing student engagement in hybrid/online learning

Maintaining student engagement is forever a headache for institutions, especially when hybrid/online learning is the new normal. The big question raised in any educational discussion is: How do we keep students engaged and activated throughout the whole course?

With the aid of pedagogical technology, institutions have renovated several teaching approaches to address the engagement challenges, from Flipping the Classroom, Activating study materials, Online Annotation, to Discussion forums. And what are the results of these innovative approaches? Join Madeleine Schultz, Honorary Fellow at Deakin University to discover how increased asynchronous engagement can predict student success. Or let Sofia Puteri, Senior Law Lecturer, Programme Director and CIRI Chief Project Officer at Taylor's University take you through her journey of using Virtual Reality to boost motivation and learning outcomes of Law graduates.

We look forward to welcoming you!

These are just a few of the many experiences you will expect to get in the upcoming inspirED 2022. Last year, we kicked off our first virtual conference as the initial step to build a pedagogical community, where like-minded educators can meet and inspire each other in transforming education. As one attendant remarked:

“Thank you very much for an inspiring conference. I picked up valuable nuggets that I can deploy in my teaching. I will share my experience with my colleagues. I can foresee the use of FeedbackFruits throughout our institution. Thanks again. I'm looking forward to your next InspirED conference. Keep well.”

And this year, we hope to continue this mission: bringing together innovative educators, faculty members and creating opportunities to learn, inspire, and move forward.
