on-demand window of your learning portal.

Additional Resources (Part 1)

There are links to two videos below exploring multiple exposures in teaching and how this practice can assist students in their learning.

The first video, Spaced Repetition in Learning Theory by Osmosis explores what is spaced repetition, covering the definition of spaced repetition and how to implement it.

CLICK HERE to watch the video

The second video, Spaced vs Massed Practiced by Sydney Stevens explores what is spaced repetition and how it compares to Massed practice and the impact that this has on the learning for students.

Learning Task 2

CLICK HERE to access the google form for this Learning Task

Now that we have unpacked the concept of multiple exposure, and you have explored some different strategies, we will look at how you can plan to incorporate this into a topic and then map out ways in which you will work with the students to monitor their progress and help them achieve their goals. 

You will need to provide a learning scenario and then explore ways in which you can approach multiple exposures on learning tasks for those students. Your scenario can either be based on an experience that you have had in your teaching practice or base your responses upon a scenario that you hope to develop sometime in the future.

In your response you need to include:

            – A brief summary of the top
            – Year/Grade the lesson is designed for
            – A brief summary of learning tasks that you would use in this learning scenario
            – A brief explanation of how you would incorporate multiple exposures into this learning                       activity
             – How you would monitor the students progress 
             – What outcomes would you expect to see in your students learning?

Once you have posted your lesson plan and clicked “submit”, you will find a box appear that provides you with a link to view other people’s responses so that you can learn from your fellow participants experiences. Feel free to read through other people experiences and take some notes about tools that you may find useful to use in your own classroom in the future.

Learning Task 3a

Now that you have completed the course, can we please ask you to revisit and reassess yourself with regards to the Multiple Exposures Continuum of Practice. Using this tool, we would like you to reassess yourself with regards to you learning after this comprehensive program has been completed. 

You will receive a copy of this response that you can use as evidence for your learning over the course duration.

PLEASE NOTE: This is exactly the same as the question you answered in Learning Task #1a, This will give you data to display your development over the course. 

CLICK HERE to access the self reflection task.

You will be sent a copy of your answers when you have completed the quiz for your own records

Make sure you Print off a hard copy of the results as evidence. Alternatively, you could save a soft copy of the results as a PDF form if you wanted to keep your evidence digitally

Additional Resources

Learning Task 3b

As the final assessment task, we are going to complete a STAR Portfolio of Learning.

Before we begin, what is a STAR Portfolio?

If you’re not already aware, STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result.

The STAR Portfolio is a short document containing bullet points and images on how you dealt with a specific problem on a specific project. This is a common presentation tool used for interviews. Working in this format will now not only allow you to demonstrate your learning but will also give you a tool you can use for job interviews.

In our folio of learning we will address the following:

S = Set the scene of the comprehensive course by summarizing the tasks you completed, the sessions you attended and the topics that you discussed.

T = Summarize the learning that came out of this comprehensive program for you.

A = How has this comprehensive program changed the ways in which you will approach learning in your classroom? What will you do differently regarding your assignments, course delivery and class discussion practices? (In this section please comment on the development of your learning as made obvious through your responses to Learning Activity 1a & 3a – this will work to demonstrate growth  over the length of the course).

R = This can be answered in one of 2 ways.

1 = If you were able to implement your lesson plan, reflect on its success, discuss what happened in the classroom/students learning and comment on how you could improve this practice in the future.

2 = if you were NOT able to implement you lesson plan, how will you look to use this teaching strategy in your teaching practice in the future?
