The quality of student learning depends largely on how well we design our curriculum and the pedagogies we use within this curriculum. A successful Flipped Classroom (FC) is no exception: to engage students and ensure learning requires carefully considered design and implementation. This chapter teases out, and more closely examines, the key critical success factors from the perspective of the changes that are required in both student and facilitator expectations and roles. In addition, a model for designing a FC provides a structured approach that emphasises a ‘context-first’ strategy.
The Health Systems and Policy course provides a broad introduction and overview of the Australian health system but has had to overcome the challenge that many students anticipate a dry and boring course of limited relevance or interest. We decided to take a different and more integrated approach that would foster deeper learning through the introduction of collaborative processes that placed students at the centre of class discussions. Learning objectives, teaching activities and assessment were realigned, and activities were developed to establish foundational knowledge outside the classroom that would inform and support discussion, reflection, engagement and debate within the classroom. The following chapter maps our teaching team’s journey through the redevelopment of The Health Systems and Policy course. The chapter is divid...
The ALS, a third-generation synchrotron light source at Berkeley Lab, has been operating for almost a decade and is generating forefront science by exploiting the high brightness of a third-generation source in three areas: (1) high resolving power for spectroscopy; (2) high spatial resolution for microscopy and spectromicroscopy; and (3) high coherence for experiments such as speckle. However, the ALS was one of the first third-generation machines to be designed, and accelerator and insertion-device technology have significantly changed since its conception. As a result, its performance will inevitably be outstripped by newer, more advanced sources. To remain competitive and then set a new standard, the performance of the ALS, in particular its brightness, must be enhanced. Substantial improvements in brightness and current...
One of the first third-generation synchrotron light sources, the ALS, has been operating for almost a decade at Berkeley Lab, where experimenters have been exploiting its high brightness for forefront science. However, accelerator and insertion-device technology have significantly changed since the ALS was designed. As a result, the performance of the ALS is in danger of being eclipsed by that of newer, more advanced sources. The ALS upgrade that we are planning includes full-energy, top-off injection with higher storage-ring current and the replacement of five first-generation insertion devices with nine state-of-the art insertion devices and four new application-specific beamlines now being identified in a strategic planning process. The upgrade will help keep the ALS at the forefront of soft x-ray synchrotron light sources f...
