Learn Like an Arachnid: Why I’m MOOCifying | Hybrid Pedagogy | Janine DeBaise

Learn Like an Arachnid: Why I’m MOOCifying | Hybrid Pedagogy | Janine DeBaise | AAEEBL -- MOOCs, Badges & ePortfolios | Scoop.it

"When [my students] do group projects in the research/composition course I teach, I’m impressed with their topics, the depth of their knowledge, and their passion. 

What seems wrong is that their presentations are only to each other. Sure, they invite their friends, but at a small college where everyone takes a whole bunch of the same courses, that’s not a very satisfying audience. The students teach me and have changed me -- dramatically -- but I shouldn’t be the only person to benefit from their knowledge and fresh ideas.

 

...

 

I want to help weave them -- and their circles of connection -- into a sparkling web that stretches around the globe. I want them to figure out how to do this not just for one semester, but for the rest of their lives."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 16, 2013 12:11 PM

Janine DeBaise got her epiphany, as she calls it, on how to go about this when she participated in MOOC MOOC, a MOOC about MOOCs. And she started to structure her course in Environmental Science and Foresty along the lines of what she'd learnt in that course on MOOC pedagogy. 

 

I like her story, because it points out so well what I have often argued for, that if we take lifelong learning seriously, college should prepare students for life as a professional. I mean really prepare them, by initiating them already in a professional network and by exposing them to the tools needed to participate in such a network effectively.

 

Janine's story is well worth reading for this reason alone. Apart from that, it is a nice personal account, with which many teachers will be able to identify, I am sure. (@pbsloep).

The Taming of the MOOC--With ePortfolio Evidence -- Campus Technology

The Taming of the MOOC--With ePortfolio Evidence -- Campus Technology | AAEEBL -- MOOCs, Badges & ePortfolios | Scoop.it
How ePortfolios can help "tame" the flood of openness and educational opportunity arising with MOOCs and other new modalities.
AAEEBL's insight:

From the 1/16/13 article by Trent Batson:

 

"The IT revolution that was supposed to transform higher education has failed to materialize, at least in the way we had imagined it. The revolution did occur, but not directly within higher education--instead, it changed the overall nature of work in our culture. And now, higher education seems to be behind the curve, struggling to catch up.

 

Enter the MOOC--a relatively new buzzword meaning Massive Open Online Course. And it holds hope for many as a way for higher education to "catch up." Indeed, MOOCs could be one way to get ahead of the curve again, or, they could become a yet another material threat to higher education. Here's how to turn this "threat" into something much more positive.

MOOCs are a fundamental misperception of how teaching works | Mark Guzdial

"During break (e.g., multi-hour long car rides), I gave a lot of thought to MOOCs and the changes that are coming to higher education. I realized that people can only believe that MOOCs can replace existing higher education classes if they misunderstand what a teacher does."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 9, 2013 10:38 AM

Mark Guzdial's angle on MOOCs may easily be dismissed as that of  a teacher wanting to save his job, but that would be unjust. Teachers, he says, do not so much lecture, but orchestratee learning activities; they are not so much teaching experts as content experts; they do not so much filter (information) but motivate. So "replacing good teachers with MOOCs reflects a deep understanding of what a teacher does". Here's the problem: "MOOCs do what the external world _thinks_ that University teachers do".

Should we perhaps convince the 'external world' to stop seeing teaching as a form of knowledge broadcasting and help them understand that teaching essentially is creating the right conditions for people to learn. If that can be done without teachers, with MOOCs or otherwise, so much the better as teachers 'do not 'scale', but the onus then is on the 'external world' to convincingly show it can. (@pbsloep)
