Let's Decide on Evaluation Criteria

It is fine. It covers all the learning experience we have been through.

Wow! Again, this is my first time in this programme to have the chance to suggest something for our evaluation criteria. I love this approach.

My suggestion for Blog:

1. Quality of reflections --> 10 points

2. Regular postings --> 5 points

Reasons:

1. Part-time students are busy.

2. June-July is the exam season.

3. We are hard-working, but may be occupied by daytime job and unexpected personal affairs.

4. It takes time to have deep reflections because it takes time to read and digest the readings. Reflections sometimes come after the tasks. Quality is more important than speed. e.g. fast food vs slow food (http://www.slowfood.com)


My suggestion for Project:

1. Storyboard --> 10 points

2. Quality of idea --> 10 points

3. Allocate 5~10 points out of the last 20 points for project documentation

Reasons:

1. In designing visual representation, the idea and creativity is the most important part. It is the cornerstone for every good production.

2. Sometimes we may not be very effective in presenting ideas by storyboarding because we have not done it before. The skill of making storyboard can be polished as time goes by. But the ability to come up with effective ideas reflects the dedication and effort of the students in various sorts of background work. Great ideas deserve more respect.

3. Some of us may be good at drawing. Some of us may be good at programming. Some of us may be good at writing manuals and procedures. Documentation is an important part in every ICT project I think. A good documentation is worth a thousand hours of debugging. Hence a well written documentation for the visual representation deserves respect also. Text isn't that evil, is it?

For your consideration please. Thank you very much!

My fellow classmates, what do you think?

I think what Dr. Churchill suggested were fair. Thanks for asking for our opinions.

 
At 1:37 AM, Blogger Christina MLIM said...

I agree that Daniel's suggestion is fair because it matched the requirements mentioned at the beginning of module.

 
At 8:08 AM, Blogger Maximilian Wat said...

I agree to Chris' suggestion for Project because the reasons are strong for change.

I appreciate Chris to have suggestions with reason. This is a very good way to understand the way how you reach the suggestions.

I feel good for Dr Churchill to ask for our views on the assessment criteria. You show a respect for your students. But I wonder how you can manage to assess many students with such complicated assessment rubric. It needs a powerful mental to do this.

It's good that you give us clear idea how we are being assessed.; however, I think that quality of presentations and regular postings are equally important, so their weightings should be more or less the same.

I totally agree with Chris marked criteria for blog, because the reason listed is just my case. I'm not saying busy is an excuse to obstacle my learning. Actually, I benefit from the experience of "learning by doing". Although it is challenge for me, but I enjoy the way to learn technique from different tools for representation.
By the way, Chris also pointed out "the quality of idea criteria" should be changed from five points to ten points. It is because a well written documentation should be allowed to have a higher mark. It would be a good idea also, because an idea itself is much more important than how the idea is shown. If I can draw something wonderfully, that is the most great, but if the idea is not good, what is the use of being able to draw when it will not be put to good use? Inspiration and creativity should come before every single project. Therefore, I believe that an idea deserves more credit.

Finally, it is a good idea of Daniel allowed students to add their view on how he is marking.

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger Keith Ma said...

In my opinion, I agree with Peon, Kelvin and Christina. I think Daniel's suggestion is more fair because it closely matches the requirements we know before.

If the criteria weighting is changed, it is unfair and meaningless for busy people who still tried their best to meet the requirement before.

Also, I think the criteria should be based on what Daniel expects us to achieve, and should not be based on what we have already achieved.

Thus, I think "no change" is one of the good choices because it is difficult to please all suggestions unless everyone has a customized criteria.

 
At 5:59 PM, Blogger Daniel said...

Hi guys,

I am "listening" and please continue with your constructive inputs. Thanks to all of you who already contributed. I would love to hear others as well.

 
At 1:02 AM, Blogger Terrenz Wong said...

I recognize Daniel's suggestion is fair. I agree with Keith’s mention that "no change is one of the good choices” as it is inequitable for some classmates who tried their best to meet the requirement before.

Max, I love Daniel's approach because he is practising interactive learning both in his flash demos and in his class. He has done a lot in supporting his students.

Actually each of us is a learning object in the stage and timeline of 6323. How much we can learn depends on how we interact with the other student objects, instructor object, blog objects.

When Daniel asks for our feedback, this is similar to putting a "mouse-over" action on me and I will respond by printing out my feedback.

I believe Daniel is experienced enough in accessing his students. He knows the best evaluation criteria for us. For me, to give suggestions and to receive feedback/critique is also part of my learning experience.

In our traditional culture here in Hong Kong, we were not trained to discuss or argue with our teachers. To show our concern or express our interest does not mean to be a win-lose scenario. For me, the most important part is the process. That's why I will try to think of some arguements to support my opinions. No matter what the final outcome is, I've learned something in the process already.

I appreciate Chris has guts to express what he thinks. He has really expressed our voice about the difficulties as part-time students and teachers in the previous busy months despite we enjoy the learning very much. Thanks, Chris.

I find some opinions from Chris are impressing and meaningful.
For example,
“Quality is more important than speed.”
“Great ideas deserve more respect.”
“A good documentation is worth a thousand hours of debugging.”

I also find interesting and insightful when he drew an analogy between Daniel's learning objects and us which I have never thought of. Chris really has learnt a lot from the module.

Opening up this platform for discussion about such an sensitive issue, it is really a challenge with respect for us. Thanks. Daniel.

It is free for us to say what we think of the evaluation criteria in this channel, it is surely what Daniel wants to see.
Basically, Chris has his point and reason. I agree with him in a certain extent.
This open channel enables me to think more about this module and my learning. That's great.
Anyway, Daniel's suggestion is acceptable and fairer to most students.

Dear Classmates and Daniel,

Thank you for Daniel giving us a chance to comment of his assessment criteria. Chris has give us a good suggestion for the assessment. Actually, both are fine for me.

When shall we make the decision, so that our submission could be based on this new criteria ?

Cheers,
Terence

I think Daniel's grading criteria is fair and suitable to all of the classmates.

Can you use hypnosis and self hypnosis to improve your health?

Well in 1958 the American Psychological Association, the American Medical Association and The British Medical Association concluded that hypnosis was indeed a viable therapeutic tool and approved its medical use.

Although there are many theories, no-one really knows how or why hypnosis works. However, the benefits of its use are clear. It has been used successfully in all manner of treatments from IBS to pre-surgery relaxation and post-surgery pain relief.

Olympic athletes, footballers, basketball layers, golfers etc., have known about the power of the mind for some decades now (perhaps the elite knew even further back). It has been shown in medical studies that when you visualise yourself performing a task your muscles respond in exactly the same way as they would if you were actually doing the task. Sports psychologist have used this to their, and their clients, advantage for years now.

The power of the mind is becoming more evident to the medical establishment as well. Everyone knows about the beneficial effects of using a placebo. It seems that if the mind is convinced that something is true then it will make it true even if the situation appears to be the exact of opposite in the 'real world'!

It seems that the quickest way to get the mind to accept a new belief is through hypnosis and self hypnosis. Phobias can be eliminated in one session now and new beliefs planted in the same aount of time.
The use of hypnosis as a weight-loss tool is well written about as its effectiveness in quitting smoking! It has been used very effectively in non-surgical breast enhancement and treating erectile dysfunction. So it is not very hard to believe that it could be used to convince the mind that health is abundant or that a particular unhealthy situation is reversing itself.

Once the mind becomes convinced that an unhealthy situation no longer exists and that health is abundant then just like the visualiser who makes his/her muscles respond to a mental image the person in discomfort or dis-ease can make his/her body begin to repair itself. Makes sense right!
No-one can predict the scope of hypnosis for healing. However, everyone knows of miracle healings that have taken place when a sick person has visited a spiritual healer, bathed at Lourdes, prayed etc. If these healings can take place then I see no reason not to believe that hypnosis can have the same effect.

Unfortunately, no large scale studies have been undertaken, to my knowledge, that have tested the power of hypnosis to cure chronic or terminal illness but I do believe there is enough evidence to suggest it is a very beneficial tool in recovery. self hypnosis
