## Abstract

Students have diverse circumstances, experiences, and goals. The challenges they face are often invisible to the educators and staff working to support them. In this paper we describe the design of a novel tool to support each student to represent their own study journey. This has been created with the participation of students and other stakeholders throughout the design process, and was inspired by previous research on the barriers faced by disabled students and the impacts of these on their experiences and attainment. The tool (Our Journey) can be used online or in a printed form. The basis of the design is the creation of cards that describe particular events that were important to the student. Students choose an event type and an emotional state, and provide short descriptions. Through this they build a structured narrative that has several potential uses. Our Journey provides an accessible and engaging means for dialogue and reflection on the nature of study journeys which could be beneficial for students. Journey data collected at scale could provide insights into areas such as student mental health and wellbeing, challenges commonly faced in study, and a holistic view of the lives of students.

Communicating Change - The role of illustration and visual storytelling to support change
Communicating Change - The role of illustration and visual storytelling to support change
21 February 2019

Culture isn't written down, but drawings and illustrations have a powerful way to depict current cultural beliefs and rules, which can then be challenged. Visual storytelling in the form of comics and cartoons is a good way of communicating abstract, complex and emotionally difficult topics. The playfulness and unpolished style also invite participation - this is in stark contrast to slick corporate PowerPoint presentations and inspiring videos that put your audience in passive receiver mode.

Learn how visual storytelling can be used in change initiatives in the Communicating Change workshop on Thursday 14 March. You will also get to discover your inner corporate comic artist and hopefully get some new ideas on how to communicate change.

This session is a new partnership venture between the Open University Change Community and the Change Management Institute. Together we present Virpi Oinonen, Chief Illustration Officer at Business Illustrator, and Andi Roberts, coach, visual consultant, facilitator and OU Tutor.

CAN conference 2019: The Evolving Landscape of Staff-Student Partnership, 29–30 May 2019 | Change Agents' Network
Change Agents' Network

A network of staff and students working in partnership to support curriculum enhancement and innovation

CAN conference 2019: The Evolving Landscape of Staff-Student Partnership, 29–30 May 2019

By Sarah Knight November 30, 2018

The Open University is proud to be hosting the Change agents’ network Conference 2019 in partnership with Jisc and we would like to announce the call for contributions from colleges and universities who are working in partnership with their students.

In 2019 the CAN Conference will focus on the evolving landscape of staff-student partnerships at universities and colleges. With CAN in its 8th year, and host institution The Open University in its 50th year, our five key themes offer participants the opportunity to critically reflect on our collective progress to date, and to begin to envision the future of staff-student partnership in a rapidly changing education sector.

Conference themes

1. Informed Innovation: Working with Students

How does innovation in education embrace and develop consistent, long-term engagement with students as partners? Innovation in education covers a broad field, from learning and teaching technologies and practices, to ways of working. An evidence-based approach to innovation promotes not only the successful implementation of ideas, but also welcomes discussion of pilots, experiments, and prototypes. Informed innovation relies on learning from experience, and this theme provides a ‘failure amnesty’ to share ultimately unsuccessful efforts. This theme invites submissions that critically reflect on the experience of innovating in education, and how this has evolved through partnership between staff and students.

2. Partnerships in Curriculum Innovation/Design

How do ongoing partnerships with students in curriculum innovation and curriculum design contribute to the development of modern and relevant learning and teaching content, materials, and practices? Submissions on this theme are welcome to explore this broad and varied area, which encompasses experiences in co-production, co-creation, consultation, engagement, student success, and the affordances of digital technologies across these.

3. Engaging Students in Change

Guest post: Jisc / OU Student Workload Tool | Effective Learning Analytics
By Niall Sclater February 9, 2016
This guest post from Jitse van Ameijde of the Open University describes a micro-project which Jisc recently funded to develop a student workload tool.

Student workload is an ever present concern in all higher education institutions for those designing, developing or delivering curriculum.

Student workload contributes to students’ decisions around withdrawing from study and is among the most important course-related factors influencing student drop-out (Bowyer, 2012). At the Open University (OU), Abbott (2003) reported that falling behind with course work was the most commonly cited reason for withdrawal with 41% of respondents indicating this as a reason. More recently, in the 2012/13 OU withdrawal survey 26% of students responding to the survey indicated the amount of study time required as a reason for withdrawal.

Initial investigations into student workload conducted at the Open University show that there is a negative correlation between student workload and completion and pass rates. Additionally, it has demonstrated that there is a correlation between the degree of spread in workload and student outcomes, where a more unevenly distributed workload (lots of peaks and troughs) is associated with more negative student workload.

The Jisc / OU Student Workload Tool aims to contribute to a curriculum which is evenly loaded and well-paced, meeting the needs of students studying alongside a busy work and home life. The workload tool allows users to record, visualise and evaluate student workload on courses.

Lecturers should use drones and robots to enhance their teaching as technological advances begin to roll out of the laboratory and into the classroom, according to a report.

“Drone-based learning” and “learning with robots” are identified as two of the main trends in Innovating Pedagogy 2019, the annual report from the Open University outlining what will influence teaching in coming years.

Robot-proof? Universities ‘finally waking up’ to the rise of AI

Identifying robots and drones is “not about the fact that they are exciting new technologies but about the possibilities they open up and how they can benefit teachers and learners”, according to Rebecca Ferguson, an editor of the report and a senior lecturer at the OU.

IOP Public Lecture "Recreating the Big Bang with the World's largest machine - the LHC at CERN"
IOP Public Lecture "Recreating the Big Bang with the World's largest machine - the LHC at CERN"

Type: Lecture

Date: 11 December 2018

Time: 19:30-20:30

Location: Berrill Lecture Theatre

Speaker is Prof. David Evans, University of Birmingham

The 27km Large Hadron Collider (LHC), situated 100 metres under the Swiss-French border at CERN near Geneva, is the World's most powerful particle accelerator. In the LHC, protons (hydrogen nuclei) are smashed together at 0.999999991 times the speed of light recreating, for a tiny instant, the violent particle collisions which would have existed less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. For about four weeks a year, lead nuclei are accelerated and collided in the LHC producing the highest temperatures and densities ever made in an experiment and recreating the exotic primordial soup which existed at the birth of our Universe. Professor David Evans, from the University of Birmingham, will explain some of the physics behind the LHC and why it was built.

ALL WELCOME! Light refreshments after the talk when you can meet the speaker.
