  2. 2. @j_w_baker james.baker@sussex.ac.uk Scenario Because you are new and fresh and young(ish), you've been given the (vague) task “making the curriculum 'digital’” You aren't making a new module rather adapting what exists (so the learning outcomes remain historical) There is no commitment to changing assessments or assessment patterns The person asking for 'digital' skills doesn't know what they are but has a sense of their relevance/importance
  3. 3. @j_w_baker james.baker@sussex.ac.uk Scenario Working in on your table (6 minutes) •Reorganise a list on things to teach into the order you think they should be taught •Justify your ordering •Make additions: things you think the students also need. Working in pairs of tables (8 minutes) •Discuss you orderings, justifications, and new items •Reorder, add new things Working all together (10 minutes) •Review our work

  6. 6. @j_w_baker james.baker@sussex.ac.uk Headline findings after 3 years! Students like practical Peer learning helps manage mass practicals Students like learning about history Primary sources are a perfect hook Students like learning about historical practice Students dislike titles that look like maths/stats Students have hugely varying skill levels Paper is your friend You learn a huge amount about the assumptions students (and colleagues) make about ‘digital’ and ‘skills’.
  7. 7. @j_w_baker james.baker@sussex.ac.uk Headline findings after 3 years! Just like everything else (perhaps even more so) digital/skills tasks need to be based on strong pedagogical practice: Huston, Therese. Teaching What You Don’t Know. Harvard University Press, 2012. Tasks like clarity grid, three-way interview, survey says, sequence construction..
