Teaching Modes - The 4 Spaces of the Apocalypse

Teaching Modes - The 4 Spaces of the Apocalypse

It would be difficult not to acknowledge that the pandemic has accelerated technology adoption and use in higher education.

“The recent, rapid move to remote learning and teaching has been a profound shock to the higher education sector, which has delivered emergency technology-enhanced learning, teaching and assessment at speed and at scale.” - Learning and teaching reimagined, Jisc 2020.

It is likely that some of this increased use of technology will continue as we slowly make our way out of a permanent remote learning experience to one where we can all begin to get back on to campus. But what does this mean for our physical campus spaces? When we do all finally get back on to campus what do we want that to be like?

In a recent podcast for Leeds Beckett University I suggest that the physical campus will need to change and rethink it’s role in a similar way to the High Street – where out of town shopping & ultimately internet shopping saw it’s demise but ultimately it’s re-emergence as a social / specialist environment.

Our campuses will need to change – but how will our buildings need to be re-configured? There is a real opportunity here to rethink and re-imagine our physical campus and how we want to maximise these spaces.

Inspired by Paul LeBlancs article on human-technology intersection framework , this workshop will explore this theme around three core questions:

1. What previous on campus activities could now be delivered entirely online?
2. What on campus, in-person, interactions are key to student success?
3. How can technology be used to support or enhance those interactions?

And so we need to start thinking about space equally in four dimensions:

In Person - On Campus
In Person - Off Campus
Online - Synchronous
Online - Asynchronous

  11. STEP 3
    • Write a short ”task”

  13. STEP 4
    • Test out your chatterbox
    on unsuspecting
    colleague / child / pet /
    partner.

  14. STEP 5
    • Create additional
    chatterboxes for each
    module as a plan for
    how you will use the
    spaces holistically.

  15. In Summary
    Think carefully about the uniqueness of each space, draw upon your
    experiences of teaching or learning remotely/online (good and bad) and
    identify some teaching activities that would work well in each of the four
    dimensions of teaching space.
    Keep in mind the three underlying questions:
    1. What previous on campus activities could now be delivered entirely online?
    2. What on campus, in-person, interactions are key to student success?
    3. How can technology be used to support or enhance those interactions?
    Value Each Space Equally
