(Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) At the x-roadsRefocusing the curriculum external and internal drivers</p> <p>Growing potential of Xerte</p> <p>Stimulate research mindedness and enhance the development of research-type graduate attributes</p> <p>Encourage students to become active participants, learning in research mode across the curriculum </p> <p>Engaging students as producers rather than consumers of knowledge</p> <p>Engaging interdisciplinarity, active learning &amp; co-creationWhy Xerte? (Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) At the x-roadsEngaging students in the process of research and of creating resources does far more than simply enhancing the learning experience. It also develops valuable skills for life while improving research outcomes too (Jisc Inform, 37: 14 Open Lives Project)</p> <p>Our focus - linking active, inquiry based learning with the production of editable, re-usable, re-purposable learning objects </p> <p>From consumer to producer, from container to creator with Xerte (Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) X-ploiting the potential</p> <p>Research mindedness Learning in partnership Active, inquiry based learning Student as producer Xerte</p> <p>From passive reception to inquiry-based production(Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) X-tending the learning experienceResearching the Social World (pilot module)</p> <p>Level 9 research-based module - 72 students</p> <p>Engaging authentic assessment with Xerte</p> <p>Embracing uncertaintyEnabling self-directionEncouraging creativityEmpowering the learner</p> <p>Capturing the learner X-perience(Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) Learning at the X-roadsXerte encourages greater creativity and critical thinking as it offers a number of different ways to present coursework. The fact that it can be easily edited, interactive and re-purposable is also a great advantage.it was a more fun way to engage in the[assessment] process and enabled students to showcase their different abilities through our coursework. Traditional forms of essays and exams don't always showcase the full potential</p> <p>Xerte was FUN. it did not feel like doing coursework</p> <p>Capturing the learner X-perience(Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) Learning at the X-roadsThe feeling of creating a tangible object based on academic research was much more fulfilling that the usual essay, exam, presentation</p> <p>You have a finished product at the end and can use it as evidence of something you created and you cannot really do that with essays</p> <p>I like that xerte allows you to be creative and display the assessment in creative and visual ways . [It] gives you a good feeling when you see the finished xerte and that you helped to create it. </p> <p>Capturing the learner X-perience(Gordon Heggie/Neil McPherson) Learning at the X-roadsThe assessments were good although I think the Xerte should be looked at as a PowerPoint does the same job fine and it is what is used in the world today </p> <p>I would've liked to have more general help on Xertes as I have never used them before. I feel that with more guidance my groups xerte could've been a bit better. </p> <p>while I appreciate it being student led it did feel at times that we were doing your job eg learning how a Xerte works, making rubrics, figuring out how to get the information for assessment 1</p> <p>the purposes of open-ended exploration could be puzzling and unsettling to students who held strongly reproductive conceptions of learning (Levy &amp; Peterullis 2012: 96) </p> <p>Providing peer support in a a collaborative learning environment (Jade McCarroll) X-tending collaborative learningThe Learner Ambassador and the Xerte Champions</p> <p>Organising and providing peer support in a collaborative and creative learning environment</p> <p>Learning in research mode where the production of Xerte learning objects differs from traditional assessment methods and mechanisms</p> <p>What were the challenges?</p> <p>Xertifying the student experience: embedding peer support(Jade McCarroll) X-tending collaborative learning</p> <p>Hard at first, getting used to something new, but the extra help from the Xerte champions being available was encouraging</p> <p>Xerte is an excellent, dynamic way to showcase coursework. Benefited from having feedback and help from Xerte champions when working on Xertes during workshops. Was helpful with their being extra help available</p> <p>Summary</p> <p>Strategic implementation of Xerte</p> <p>Xerte at the heart of curricular change</p> <p>Xerte, collaborative learning a co-creation</p> <p>Learner experience embracing discomfort and discovery</p> <p>Harnessing the potential of peer support </p>
