Transitions in higher education

Transitions in higher education | Academic Staff  Development | Scoop.it
Sir Ken Robinson addresses the economic, cultural, social and personal purposes of education. He argues that education should be personalised to every student's talent, passion, and learning styles, and that creativity should play a central role. Although this speaks to the schooling system it is immensely relevant to the higher education context and being a university teacher.
Anne-Mart Olsen's insight:

ed.ted.com is  a fantastic resource. I do recommend trying it. This is a lesson I created specifically to get academics talking about what it means to be a university teacher..

I often begin my workshop on personal learning networks (PLN) for educators by asking these questions: Who is in your learning network? Who do you learn from on a regular basis? Who do you turn to for your own professional development? Then, I share with participants these ten tips for building their own personal learning network, and I hope these might be useful for you too.
