As part of my contribution to the OULDI project in Reading I'll be posting regular video diary of the process I'm going through to add new problem based learning content to an existing Meteorology module

Hi Andrew,

I'm really interested in this project  -not only does it present you with challenges in terms of developing your practice but also it will be interesting to see how your students have found the design changes you have made from passive to active activities. PBL can be really challenging and requires new skills!

I hope the OULDI tools prove useful in articulating the structure of the module and the connections and relationships between students, context, content, resources, lecturers etc - and are effective in helping you frame your evaluation. I seem to remember you were going to start with the Course Map - is that still your plan?

Hi Rebecca

Thanks for your comment. Yes the next plan is to produce a course map, before and after the changes we made. I'll then assess this to see how the new activities fit into the overall course structure.

I've just uploaded my latest video diary talking about the initial course map I've made and its impact on my thoughts about the course design. If you would like to see the map in more detail I've added it to the embedded content.

Your latest video diary is very interesting; it enables me to follow your progress in evaluating the Kolb elements of the students' experiential learning. The volume of the latest diary was fine, although for some reason that I could not identify, the volume of your first diary was too quiet for me to hear. I planned to apply a PBL approach to course design, so I hope to be able to share my progress, once I have mastered the tools.

I've just added a third video diary outlining the changes we made to the module and how the course map helped me in this process. Sorry for the big time gap between posting. In the final video diary I will assess how well the new activities worked (using student surveys from 2009 and 2010) and suggest improvements and modifications to the course mapping tool.

I've just added a fourth and final video diary detailing how we evaluated the implementation of the PBL elements introduced to the field course module. I've also included some thoughts on PBL in meteorology in general and some thoughts on course design following my involvement in OULDI. 

Since communicating all the findings of the evaluation is difficult in video form, I've also added some tiffs showing the quantitative outcomes from both implementations and my full project report which discusses them at length and in context. Please note that some appendices are missing from the project report but I am happy to supply these on request.

Hi Andrew, thank you for uploading your final video. I think what is so interesting for me is the way in which you have captured and articulated the process of design you have gone through - right through to evaluation. You have been really rigorous in the way you have checked your thinking at each stage and validated it. Of course I hope that the Course Map supported/framed that process (and it sounds like you think it did) but I also wonder how far the activity of open video reflection also supported and framed the design process. I hope that makes sense!

I am also really interested in the way that you used Kolb's Experiential Cycle as a way of checking out the range of student activity/ type of learning. Essentially you developed your own fit-for-purpose and empirically evidenced learning design tool because you needed it at the time.

A really useful and interesting piece of work - thank you for sharing it.
