11:45 – 12:30 The Rise of Student Engagement and Success: A new paradigm of Korean higher education
Dr. Sanghoon Bae, Vice President of Student Affairs and Director of Student Success Center, Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea
In the past decade, Korea’s higher education has experienced a huge paradigm shift owing to dramatic environmental changes. The new trend adopts student-oriented education, student engagement, and student success as major themes. The most frequently cited concept is “student-oriented” education. It is perceived as the vision which universities and colleges should work toward satisfying the needs of students and helping them fulfil their academic and career goals. Lately, the term “student engagement” was introduced to actualize the theme of “student-oriented” which is viewed solely as abstract and directional. While “student-oriented” suggests the ideal that institutions should strive for, “student engagement” involves the intervention strategies that are prescribed for developing systems and practices aimed at building student-oriented institutions. Notably, the emergence of the concept of student engagement led Korean researchers and practitioners to target the learning process and experiences of the students which was previously left in the “black box.” Finally, “student success” as a theme is flourishing among Korean universities and colleges which have made it their fundamental mission to be accountable for the students’ learning outcomes and success in future life. Moreover, student engagement is highlighted as an effective strategy to achieve student success. This presentation aims to explain why the theme of ‘student success’ has been introduced and widely accepted in Korea’ higher education. In addition, this presentation will provide the case of Sungkyunkwan University, which originally announced ‘student success’ as a vision of the institution and has made great efforts to develop systems and practices to actualize the vision of ‘student success.’ Finally, this presentation will suggest what should be considered by the institutions who pursue ‘student success’ as the institution’s goal in terms of policy, institutions, program development, and campus culture.

Teaching & Learning

Location: Namsan I, Second Floor

14:00 – 14:40 Enhancing the Effectiveness of Self-Directed Learning (SDL) and Supporting At-Risk Students through Blackboard Journal
Jonathan M. Bryce, INTI International University and Colleges
Self-directed learning (SDL) is an education strategy wherein students, overseen by the lecturer, decide upon their own learning within given parameters and, in so doing, take responsibility for their own learning. One of the paramount success factors in SDL is the student’s ability to manage their time and focus their energies aright. Many students, however, fail as a direct result of an inability to manage their SDL and need some form of intervention and support to guide and direct them. This study explores providing such intervention through using Blackboard journal as a medium to monitor and evaluate learning performance to empower and motivate students by helping them track and take control of their SDL.
14:45 – 15:25 Syncing Classcraft Gamification with Blackboard
Priyadarshinee a/p Superamaniam, INTI International University and Colleges
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of combining traditional pedagogical strategies with Blackboard and Classcraft (technological tools) in a Workplace Communication (COM2114) classroom to engage and motivate hospitality students to achieve better understanding and results.
15:25 – 15:55 Afternoon Tea Break
15:55 – 16:35 How do we employ UDL in our own practice?
Mark Bailye, Client Success Manager, Blackboard
As learner diversity continues to grow, so does the need for institutions to ensure that the needs of all learners are considered and appropriately addressed in the learning, teaching and assessment experiences they design and develop. Creating content and providing a learning experience that is accessible for all students can be challenging. In this session, participants will be exposed to the basic principles behind Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how this can be achieved in practice. When learning materials are well designed – the closer the parity and quality of learning experience becomes for all learners.

9:10 – 9:55 Strategically Partnering: Co-creating the VLEs of the Future
Professor Michael Sankey, Deputy Director, Learning Transformations, Learning Futures, Griffith University, Australia
As institutions are increasingly testing the boundaries of technology enhanced learning with emergent and exciting new online learning tools, the responsibility on HE institutions to mediate a level of rigor in this area also increases. One of the really interesting evolving trends is the prospect that institutions are not all doing this alone. And that as a higher education community there are opportunities to strategically partner with both other institutions and with vendors so that we do not all have to reinvent the same wheel over and over again. At the same time, we need to be very conscious of not prematurely throwing out the baby with the bath water and that too sudden a shift can create problems for our students that could be easily avoided. This presentation will look at a range of current practices being seen within the sector that stand as great examples of partnering around new: learning and teaching initiatives; quality practices; models of credentialing; technology mashups, and more. All of these are leading us to develop new models of practice in how we mediate our virtual learning environments (VLEs) of the future.
9:55 – 10:40 The Change of Career Development System in Higher Education in South Korea
Dr. Misug Jin, CEO, Seongnam City Youth Foundation
Korean higher education institutions, which have been expanding dramatically since 1980s, have experienced various difficulties resulting from the rapid change of national and global environment, such as the rapid decrease in the number of students, the decrease of employment ratio of graduates along with jobless growth, and the national policy drive for university reform. Based on the results of the projects conducted over the past three years, Dr. Jin will share students’ needs for university education, their needs for career development support, the status of service at universities, and effective career development models. This session will provide the opportunity for exploring and sharing innovative ways to support students in the era of the 4th industrial revolution in higher education.
10:40 – 11:10 Morning Tea Break
11:10 – 11:55 Toward a Digital Learning Roadmap
Dr. Gregory Winslett, Deputy Director, Digital Learning, Institute for Teaching & Learning Innovation, University of Queensland, Australia
The higher education sector has invested decades of effort into pedagogical research, educational technology innovation and improved digital teaching and learning capabilities. Despite significant improvements through new platforms and better ways to produce curriculum and learning design, there are signs that we still have a long way to go. Academic change fatigue, student satisfaction that has plateaued and a virtual learning experience that is often patchy and inconsistent suggest that we’re not fully realising the benefits of this new digital world and new student cohort. Furthermore, recent cross-sectoral research suggests that we rate our digital performance far lower than virtually all other sectors. We have an opportunity (and a responsibility) to re-calibrate how we ‘do’ digital learning transformation.
The challenges are substantial. The curriculum is crowded, the academic workforce is changing and there is a proliferation of new pedagogic models, products, technologies and outcomes. The University of Queensland is responding to these challenges with an institution-wide Student Strategy. As part of that strategy, the Digital Learning Roadmap seeks to balance consistency for students with novel and surprising digital learning experiences and will create a space that supports evidence-based approaches and risk-taking and innovation. In this presentation, Greg draws upon his twenty-five years practice in the sector and reflects on what works and what we have to look forward to.
11:55 – 12:40 Education 2030
Nicole Wall, Director of Consulting, APAC, Blackboard
We are at a turning point for education with fundamental shifts happening in the education sector globally. It is now time to examine whether the innovations we’re making in our own contexts can keep up with what’s needed in the world of 2030 and will current education models remain relevant into the future? Based on the research at HolonIQ this presentation will explore trends across the Education sector and examine 5 Scenarios for the Future of Education and unpack the global drivers that are currently shaping the education landscape. The presentation will ‘deep dive’ into the key drivers, examining new models that are emerging.

14:25 – 15:05 Elevating Learning Motivation and Engagement with Online Learning
Adele H.T. Kam, INTI International University and Colleges
This presentation outlines a case study of embedding game elements into a Cambridge A-Levels physics course. The online activities in this course, i.e. quizzes, were designed to meet two basic psychological needs – the sense of autonomy and the sense of competence. To support the sense of autonomy, learners should perceive the freedom to engage with the online quizzes and the freedom from fear of failure. The Test tool in Blackboard Learn was used to create quizzes with randomized questions from question pools. The Calculated Formula test type was used to further randomize the variables in the problems. These applications enable the generation of unique question sets for students to practice in each attempt.
15:05 – 15:35 Afternoon Tea Break
15:35 – 16:15 A Gamified Approach to Improve Student Learning Experiences on Blackboard Learn
Dr. Lim Chia Yean, Vasuky Mohanan, INTI International University and Colleges
A gamification research study conducted by Zoe (2018) found that 74% of learners said that a points system would boost their engagement as well as 64% of learners commented that they would be motivated to learn if leader boards were involved and they could compete with colleagues in the gameplay. This study intends to identify the gamification features that could be adopted in Blackboard to improve student learning experience on Blackboard.

13:40 – 14:20 Extending Your VLE to Reach Beyond Registered Students: Course Catalogue and Registration Tool
Nicole Wall, Director of Educational Consulting, Blackboard
Institutions do more than offer accredited programmes. Learners do more than study degrees. Academics are often learners too. All institutional employees need to stay current on technology and business practices. These scenarios – short courses, CPD, staff development, pre-enrolment engagement, community outreach, etc. can be difficult to support in the VLE when enrolment is facilitated through a traditional SIS. This session will explore how Blackboard’s new Training
and Professional Development tool integrates with Bb Learn to allow users to create their own account, browse and select courses and enrol; once enrolled the tool enables learners to track their progress and receive certificates of completion. Learner dashboards display current, past and future courses allowing learners to easily track their progress in each course and easily access certificates for past activities.
14:25 – 15:05 Surmounting Challenges with Professional Development Using Blackboard Learn
Dr. Jessie Wong Pooi See and Evelyn Chai Min Chian, Sunway Education Group
Academic staff professional development has always been a key part in every institution to improve the quality of teaching and learning for students. However, at Sunway College Kuala Lumpur (SCKL), it has always been a challenge to ensure that all the academic staff (currently 376 full-time and part-time staff) complete the required training every year due to the different semester schedules for the multiple programmes in our institution. Find out how Sunway has created the SCKL Academic Professional Development course on Blackboard Learn aimed to be a one stop solution for all professional development needs. See how this supports their journey towards their ultimate goal of encouraging self-directed learning among academic staff.

15:35 – 16:15 Meeting the Needs of 21st Century Students
Adrian Powell, Senior Director, Educational Consulting, Blackboard
Institutions around the world are committed to providing the best learning experience possible for their students, recognising the importance of learning technologies in supporting the provision of that experience, but also being aware of the challenges associated with the inevitable change in long standing approaches to education. However, in the rush to provide a solution they sometimes are unable to dedicate time to thinking about what are the actual needs of the student and those who support the learning experience, resulting in engagement levels being lower than anticipated. We know that the learning experience needs to engage the ‘learner’ and retain their interest if the desired outcomes are to be achieved. This presentation looks to identify the needs and expectations of today’s students and explore ways in which learner engagement can be encouraged and supported through the use of learning technologies. We will consider the learning experience is impacted upon by accessibility, inclusivity, flexibility and design.
