|Title:||Reflections on Sustainability Issues in Learning Object Development||Authors:||Carroll, Paula; Flaherty, Niall; Ovenden, Bard||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10863||Date:||28-Jun-2019||Online since:||2019-07-08T10:52:57Z||Abstract:||Data science is a relatively new requirement in business curricula. Historically many business students have shied away from business statistics. We describe a project to create learning objects to enhance business students confidence and capabilities in performing statistical and analytics business tasks. In this paper we focus on the content development process, rather than the impact of the learning objects on student learning outcomes. We reflect on the steps in the learning object design and implementation project and conclude that the Plan, Act, Observe and Reflect iterative cycle worked well for the project team. We include recommendations on how this framework could be augmented to improve the sustainability of learning objects.||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Universitat Politècnica València||Start page:||169||End page:||176||Copyright (published version):||2019 the Authors||Keywords:||Innovative learning materials; Learning object development; Quantitative skills development; Learning object sustainability||DOI:||10.4995/head19.2019.9170||Other versions:||http://www.headconf.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||5th International Conference on Higher Education Advances (HEAd'19)||Conference Details:||HEAd’19: 5th International Conference on Higher Education Advances, Valencia, Spain, 25-28 June 2019||ISBN:||9788490486610|
