Supervision technology in teacher training programmes
In this project, via a number of subprojects, we wish to test out and experiment with the software MOSO (Mentoring and Observation Software) in Primary and Lower Secondary School teaching practice, and prepare larger research projects.
In this project, we wish to trial, describe and discuss how work with Liz Lerman’s method, “Critical Response System” can also function as a form of supervision in drama and theatre teaching. The project will also investigate how work with “Reflecting teams” affects feedback and the teaching quality of artistic work.
In the project Informal mentoring dialogues in police practice, the conversations that take place between police students and their supervisors are examined further during the year of practical training.
The project’s aim is to increase lecturers’ awareness of quality when developing video lectures. The target group is predominately university and university college staff. These people are in possession of a great deal of knowledge as far as teaching in their own field is concerned, but often have less or only basis knowledge about teaching through video. The aim is to “give the technology back to the staff” through making a website which provides them with academically-based practical support for developing video lectures of high quality. The project is a collaboration with the Norwegian Agency for Digital Learning in Higher Education and the University of Agder.
ADILA – Research and development within digital communication and supervision
ADILA – Agder Digital Learning Arena – is UIA’s research project for innovation with new digital learning technology. At present, ADILA has six PhD positions working with different themes within ICT and learning. Each year, ADILA arranges a conference at which we present results from new and ongoing research and development work within ICT and learning.
UIA BETA is PULS’s open sharing platform for the trialling and discussion of digital tools and social media in learning, teaching, research and dissemination. Here, we invite you to share your experiences and to test out everything which, in one way or another, is related to ICT and learning.
The pilot project’s primary issue for discussion involves exploring how tablets as observational platforms can contribute to increasing the quality of teaching student supervision. The project is in collaboration with the University of Tromso and the University School Project in Tromsø.
The project investigates the significance of supervision-like situations (informal mentoring dialogues) during the course of the students’ practical training periods in occupational training, with police training as a starting point. The project is carried out in collaboration with the internship division at the Norwegian Police University College.
The project investigates how instruction and supervision of students undergoing alpine/snowboard training can be improved through the use of digitalised observation material, and provide student with immediate, supervised guidance in practice and training.
The main objective of the project is to develop digital books/E-books for use in the work with students as they develop study strategies and academic writing skills. The project is in collaboration with Umeå University.
The extended theory of planned behavior and college grades: The role of cognitive and automatic processes in the prediction of students' academic intentions and achievements
The aim of the present study was to examine the utility of the extended Theory of planned behavior (TPB) and the relative impact of cognitive and automatic processes in the prediction of grade intentions and actual grades in the context of higher education.
