Fwd: IJSaP 4(2) is published and call for contributions to a new section on ‘Voices from the Field’



We are delighted to let you know that the 8th issue of the International Journal for Students as Partners (IJSaP) is available from https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/ijsap/issue/view/385

In this issue you will find 15 manuscripts – 1 editorial, 4 research articles, 5 case studies, 2 reflective essays, 2 opinion pieces and 1 review. Together these contributions have been written by 23 faculty/staff and 22 students from Australia, Canada, China (Hong Kong), China (Mainland), Malaysia, Ireland, UK, and US.

The journal, which is hosted by McMaster University Library Press, is co-edited by students and staff/faculty from Australia, Canada, China (Hong Kong), China (Mainland), Malaysia, UK, and US.

Potential authors (both staff and students) with an idea for a contribution are strongly encouraged to send the editors (ijsap@mcmaster.ca<mailto:ijsap@mcmaster.ca>) a brief (around 250 words) proposal<https://teaching.mcmaster.ca/app/uploads/2019/07/Proposed-submission-proforma-IJSaP-June-18.docx> for a research article, case study, opinion piece, reflective essay, or review before writing and submitting the article. This will help ensure that the proposed piece fits with the focus of the journal and encourages a conversation between potential authors and the editorial board. The proposal should outline the type (i.e. research article, opinion piece, etc.) as well as focus of the potential submission. We also welcome hearing your views about the journal.

Staff and students who have interest and experience in students as partners are encouraged to indicate their interest in joining the International Reviewer Panel by completing the Reviewer Expression of Interest Form<https://goo.gl/forms/lagSTJPSms0mTOaH3>.

Voices from the Field
IJSaP is piloting a new section of the journal called "Voices from the Field." The goal of this section is to create a venue for a wide range of voices to address important questions around students-as-partners work without going through the intensive time commitment required by the submission, review, and revision processes. We want to hear your voices and put them into dialogue with one another!

We are posting this open call for thoughts on the question below, and we will organize excerpts from the responses we receive into what we hope will be a creative, engaging, accessible format to share with readers. We'll see how this pilot goes and either turn "Voices from the Field" into a permanent section, include it occasionally, or revisit the idea altogether.

Here is the question we invite you to address: Over the next 3-5 years, how might students-as-partners work develop in a wider variety of contexts around the world and feature a greater diversity of experiences and voices?

These responses or 'voicings' should be:

  *   between 75 to 150 words in length;
  *   informal but substantive—they can be practical and/or provocative, experience based or newly imagined, a plan or a challenge;
  *   clearly articulated from your own position and perspective (so very briefly tell readers who you are—context, identities/background, position); and
  *   focus on partnership/students as partners (within or beyond the classroom)

We are looking for 15-20 contributions by 7 December 2020.  Please use this link<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DLLNPJG> to submit your response to the question.  If we reach this number before the deadline you will no longer be able to make a submission, so please check the link before you start writing.

Please pass this note on to anyone you think may be interested.

New Journal, Studies in technology enhanced learning

https://stel.pubpub.org/

Studies in Technology Enhanced Learning is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal intended as a vehicle for publishing works of empirical investigation, critical commentary, and scholarly review in technology enhanced learning research. The journal aims to provide a lively forum for debate and reflection on a wide range of issues connected with technology enhanced learning in disparate settings. We aim to allow for a range of conversations that often occur “under the radar” in the field (including in conference discussions and seminars) to be made explicit and therefore opened up to reflection and contribution by a wider range of people.

Fwd: PERSONAL TUTORING PUBLICATION


 

Following the conclusion of the (SEDA accredited) CRA programmes in Personal Tutoring and Academic Advising, we have been working to consolidate the collective learning from the Portfolios submitted for accreditation into an online Journal.  We did not start out with this intention but the wealth and richness of the Portfolio evidence submitted made it too good an opportunity to miss! 

 

A number of colleagues have contributed to this by producing themed Chapters, themselves drawing on the wide range of portfolio evidence submitted for accreditation.  All are acknowledged in the publication, which can now be viewed and downloaded at https://joom.ag/QquC.   We hope this will be of interest and value to many; please circulate to other colleagues to whom you feel this may be of interest. 

 

With all best wishes

Research on higher education research: a bibliography

What is higher education research? Is it a (scattered) field, a discipline, a tribe, a territory, a (a‐theoretical) community of practice, a cluster of silos, or an archipelago whose watery divides need bridging?

Each of the listed conceptualizations and metaphors has been invoked at least once by scholars who have grappled with this question, as it can be seen from the literature listed below. A closer look at these works reveals a variety of angles and takes, some criticism, occasional disagreements, lots of reflection, and at least one idea most seem to agree on: higher education research is, for better or for worse, not short of divisions.

This post does not, however, aim to engage in the discussion about the characteristics of higher education research (which doesn’t mean it cannot be a discussion starter). The aim here in fact is far less ambitious and limited to sharing a list of works which analyze, discuss, and reflect on higher education research.

The works included in the bibliography focus on a variety of aspects, and these include, among others, relationship with disciplines, policy, theory, or method, conceptual discussions, focus on specific parts of the world or on specific journals, citation analyses, writing style, and so forth. The list is likely not exhaustive, yet by continuously updating it, it surely will be increasingly more comprehensive over time.

Fwd: Just published – Student Empowerment in Higher Education: Reflecting on Teaching Practice and Learner Engagement




Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the publication of a 2-part edited volume Student Empowerment in Higher Education: Reflecting on Teaching Practice and Learner Engagement with a Foreword by Professor Alison Cook-Sather.

Please click on the link below for more information and to purchase your copy: 
https://bit.ly/2THgUWZ

"In recent decades, higher education policy discourse has persistently implied that a university education is 'delivered' to students under the impersonal banner of 'the student experience'. Not only does this commodify the diverse, individual experiences of students into one marketable product, it also creates false barriers and power dynamics between students and their teachers. In Student Empowerment in Higher Education, the students and lecturers who collaborated to write this important volume have literally blown such misleading notions out of the window! I highly recommend each varied and autonomous chapter to learn what really inspires confidence and success in university students."
-Professor Sarah Hayes, Professor of Higher Education Policy, University of Wolverhampton

"The two volumes of Student Empowerment in Higher Education offer the reader rich and varied examples and understandings of student empowerment from around the world. The authors provide reflective accounts of learning and teaching from diverse perspectives and disciplines, which focus on many different areas of practice in higher education. It is this variety that will appeal to many readers, as the source of ideas and inspiration for numerous possible routes to empowerment.  With many chapters co-authored by students and staff, the book models the collective responsibility students and staff have for enhancing student empowerment."
-Dr. Catherine Bovill, Senior Lecturer in Student Engagement, University of Edinburgh; Fulbright Scholar, Elon University, North Carolina, USA; Visiting Fellow (Knowledge Exchange), University of Winchester

All the best and stay safe,
Anjoom and Sharmina

New book on assessment and feedback - free download






Teachers spend much of their time on
assessment, yet many higher education teachers have received minimal
guidance on assessment design and marking. This means assessment can
often be a source of stress and frustration. Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education aims to solve these problems. Offering a concise overview of assessment theory and practice, this guide provides teachers with the help they need.

In education, theory and practice are often poorly linked. In this guide,
Teresa McConlogue presents theoretical ideas and research findings and
links them to practice. She considers recent theoretical work on
feedback and suggests ways of developing evaluative judgement.
Throughout the book, teachers are encouraged to examine their practice
critically, and there are ideas for small-scale educational
investigations, involving teachers, their colleagues and students, such
as using the Assessment Review Questionnaire to adapt assessments.

A key principle of Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education is
that an understanding of academic standards is fundamental to good
assessment design and more reliable marking. The guide explores the
concept of academic standards and proposes methods of co-constructing
shared standards within a teaching team and with students through
calibration activities.
