Wearing Four Pairs of Shoes: The Roles of E-Learning Facilitators

Wearing Four Pairs of Shoes: The Roles of E-Learning Facilitators | Advancing Beyond Lecture | Scoop.it

An e-learning facilitator's role as instructor is consistent with seminal adult learning research in which instructors guide self-directed learning in problem-centered environments. E-learning facilitators don't hold all the answers: They offer their own unique insights as they help learners acquire knowledge and develop skills.

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: ‘dropout’ a category mistake, look at ‘uptake’?

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: ‘dropout’ a category mistake, look at ‘uptake’? | Advancing Beyond Lecture | Scoop.it

MOOCs must not be seen as failure factories. They must rise above the education models that filter and weed out learners through failure. Good MOOCs will allow you to truly go at your own pace, to stop and start, go off on an exploratory path and return again. This is what true adult learning is and should be. I always drop out of learning experiences as I never go on formal courses. I decide when I’ve had enough. They should not copy but complement or construct new models of learning.

"Adult learning is a vast area of educational research and probably one of the most complicated. Adults learn differently and have different strategies in learning. Adults Learning Theory and Principles explain in details these strategies and sheds more light on how adults cultivate knowledge.

 Talking about adult learning brings us to the concept of Andragogy. According to the article Malcolm Knowles an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”. Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as:"

Beyond Student Engagement: Achieving a State of Flow | Edutopia.org

Beyond Student Engagement: Achieving a State of Flow | Edutopia.org | Advancing Beyond Lecture | Scoop.it

Think about a time when you were really engaged in something, the kind of engagement where you lose track of time and experience feelings of joy and satisfaction. You may have felt acutely focused, physically, mentally, and emotionally absorbed in a task. I've felt this most often while writing, reading, teaching, and coaching -- always signaled by the moment when I notice the clock and, feeling dazed, wonder where the hours have gone.

 

The feelings are pleasant and there are always outcomes, a chapter written, or a complicated dilemma unraveled, for example. It wasn't until I heard about the work of the Hungarian psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, that I learned that this notion has a name: Flow.

 

I would like to urge the education community to move beyond a discussion of "engagement," with its vague definitions and murky attributes, to a conversation on flow; I'd like to propose that our task as educators is to increase the experiences of flow for students.

Achieving a state of flow is the equivalent to being passionately and intricately involved with your subject.  That is personalised learning taken to its utmost success.  Using Blooms' taxonomy to achieve this is all part of teaching critical thinking.  Edutopia article on the experience after you have created the hook!

30 THINGS WE KNOW FOR SURE ABOUT ADULT LEARNING

A variety of sources provides us with a body of fairly reliable knowledge about adult learning. This knowledge might be divided into three basic divisions: things we know about adult learners and their motivation, things we know about designing curriculum for adults, and things we know about working with adults in the classroom.

Interesting that this was compiled in 1984 (although the webpage obviously wasn't - no date on the webpage itself or in its metadata) and the authors comment that "The next five years will eclipse the last fifty in terms of hard data production on adult learning" -- which takes us to 1989, nearly a quarter of a century ago... what has this anticipated hard data shown? Broadly the same picture, or any important revisions / additions?
