    1. It's hiding at https://readwise.io/pricing, but they do offer a 50% student discount if you email them in advance. I think it's still a bit steep for the functionality that the service offers, but some may find it a bit more palatable at least.

    1. “They have to decide whether to eat or pay for the book, whether to pay rent or pay for the book. It’s a one-time cost, but it has multiple implications of students sacrificing utilities, for example, and then putting their housing at risk.”

    1. "Music education students enter universities from diverse backgrounds that include musical experiences in “subaltern” musical practices (rock bands, music theatre, hip hop, and other genres). After four years or so in the institutional environment, we send them out to the world somehow convinced that what they ought to be teaching is the Western canon."

    1. enefits over the in-person classroom. “Online, we’re all face-to-face. There’s no sitting back in the fourth row like in a lecture hall,”

      Which is true if students are turning on their cameras. However, what about when students refuse to turn on their cameras or are not in a feasible position to participate (e.g. driving down the interstate or skiing down Brian Head?

    1. Oversharing. Crying, disclosing intimate details, and telling long (unrelated and/or unsolicited) stories about one’s personal life may indicate the lack of an essential social work skill: personal boundaries.

      Testing out the annotate feature. Student 1 will highlight sections according to the prompts, as shown HERE.

      For example: "This is me during interviews. I say too much and veer off topic."

    1. Tanya Hannaford, M.Ed. (2021, February 6). I’ve been teaching face to face all school year, and I’m here to tell you: Face to face instruction doesn’t = better mental health for students. They’re all still struggling. Because it’s a pandemic. [Tweet]. @WritingWoman7. https://twitter.com/WritingWoman7/status/1358052392378507266

    1. Website

      this is great that their is a link to their website. Wasn't expecting this but it is a great feature.

    1. Personal website External Link Miah Jeffra Email Login to view emailexample@domain.com

      Don't know about former students access to the phonebook. Probably frustrating for them not to be able to view the email if they would like to contact the professor and no longer can access their account. But, I get why it's hidden.

    1. Faculty & Staff

      as a professional now, I would know to look here first — and faculty and staff is clearly in sight and intuitive.

    1. While our program still faces some challenges around engaging our students and keeping them enrolled in programs long enough to complete their goals, technology has allowed us to make some remarkable strides.

      A school system that extends to adult education utilizes online apps as an option (but doesn't require internet access, as many people lack it at home). They have found them to be helpful, especially because people who work odd shift jobs and have burst of time at odd hours can get some practice in. This is most helpful for ESL learners. 6/10

    1. Therefore, practitioners need to be cognisant of the important role they play in influenc-ing learner motivation when designing learning activities. Most importantly, the relevance and value of the task (e.g., online discussions) need to be clearly identified and linked to learning objectives to help learners understand how the activity can aid in the realisation of personal goals, aspirations, and interests, both in the short and longer term.

      Based on research and two small scale case studies, some students in online learning are intrinsically motivated, but others need to be motivated by the teacher and material. External influences such as deadlines and grades also influenced student motivation. Identified regulation, that is, knowing why the activity is valuable and important, make a very big difference in student motivation. This brings us back to the andragogical idea that the assignments should involve real-world situations and be applicable to students' lives. 9/10

    1. Handbook of Research on Student-Centered Strategies in Online Adult Learning Environments

      This article showcases a framework for course design using theory and research in the learning sciences. It defines student-centered learning and explains how it can/ should be used in the creation of the course and when establishing which theories and methods to structure the course around. 9/10, very detailed source.

    1. TEAL Fact Sheet

      Teaching Excellence in Adult Learning (TEAL), a great list of resources for different aspects of adult learning. Theories, lesson planning, student centered... The rest of the website has excellent resources as well. It can be a little daunting to try to navigate but a great resource all the same.

    1. EAL Center Fact Sheet No. 11: Adult Learning Theories

      This is an extensive site that offers many resources for adult learning. TEAL (Teaching Excellence in Adult Learning) has helpful information for planning, UDL, goal setting and much more.

      10/10 This site cites its sources and is easy to use.

    1. but they should be engaging, because this leads to students beingmore motivated to learn and succeed.The possibilities of how students interact with content and with each other are greatly expanded in a hybrid course; just having themread articles online and then meet to discuss themin-class, for example, takes no real advantage of a class format that can otherwise be a transformative experience.

      This article, published by the College of DuPage, gives an introduction to hybrid learning environments. The authors outline the benefits of hybrid learning, how to utilize time wisely, the student experience (both in person and online), and how to structure and plan hybrid courses.

    1. Most instructors will have the experience and knowledge of their students’ situation to make wise choices about activities that will work best.

      Academic professors are acknowledging their students well-being which is important and shows care from both sides of the professor and student. This allows the student know that even though the professor is mainly involved with education, they still care.

    1. Student assignments that promote student publishing or participating on the open web (open teaching or open pedagogy)

      Open pedagogy is an important approach to tap into student-generated content. Generative learning theory has so much potential to foster learning experience and maximise leanring outcomes.

    1. Considerable research indicates that college students are bothmore likely to persist and to perform at high academic levelswhen they perceive themselves to be members of a cooperativeand supportive learning community (Kuh, 2009; Tinto, 2006;Zhao & Ku, 2004)

      For another study, being a member of a cooperative and supportive learning environment may moderate the rates for persistence and academic performance in college.
