Time: 12:45pm – 2:00pm
Venue: Room 321, 3/F, Run Run Shaw Building

Abstract:

Assistant Professor Dr. Masato Kajimoto from Journalism and Media Studies Centre taught the third iteration of HKU’s online course on edX titled HKU04x Making Sense of News from May to June 2015. The six-week course has attracted more than 7,500 registrations from 147 different countries. It has largely been seen as a successful implementation of journalism-focused media literacy course for the general public and he has been invited to give talks and workshops by different universities that focus on news literacy education.

In this talk, Dr. Kajimoto shares the findings of his investigation into the behavioral data mined through the MOOC in order to illustrate what educators could learn from the learning analytics in terms of curriculum development, instructional design strategies and other pedagogical planning. He then discusses how he has integrated the MOOC into his on-campus teaching.

In order to explore the effective ways to “blend” the two modes of learning experience for the students (namely, face-to-face interactions and self-paced online tuition), he has “flipped” a half of his lectures in the elective course, JMSC1001 Principles of Journalism and the News Media, this semester, which enrolled 127 students from different faculties. He demonstrates how the content has been migrated from edX platform to Moodle while showcasing some of the benefits and challenges he has observed thus far in his experiment.
