Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's curator insight, May 21, 2013 11:50 AM

Most students at the undergrad/grad level are adults or are beginning to be adults, so instructional design should take these differences into account.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's comment, May 21, 2013 11:53 AM
Quote from article: "In the final analysis, I do not think that there are differences in the way we learn as adults, or kids, but rather the differences lie in the opportunities afforded to learn. If we respected kids more as learners, they might be more self-directed and motivated in their learning. If they are allowed to participate in their learning, they might take more ownership."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 17, 2013 12:06 AM

As some are raised a Catholic or an atheist or a vegetarian, I was raised an academic. The university always had about it a mystique, a cloud of mystery and veneration. Lauded in my household were the values of objectivity, critical thinking, close reading. As early as the fourth grade, my mother took me to her college Shakespeare classes, introduced me to her professors, and indulged me with lunch at the student union. I attended classes with her throughout her undergraduate study; and for years after, I’d walk through campus simply to absorb the essence of the place. Today, I am as much in love with the endeavor of higher education as I am disappointed by its outcomes.

The reformation of higher education is under way. Whether we agree or not, the vast credentialing system of universities and colleges, the importance placed upon expertise, the value of the degree and the Ph.D., the political economies that oppressthose that form the backbone of the system, the administration of learning, therights of students, and even the act of learning itself are all under scrutiny. It is a scrutiny that’s been in play for years, and has been exacerbated most recently by the advent of the MOOC (massive open online course), the corporatization of education, and the exportation of pedagogy to technologists and private entrepreneurs. Sadly, little is coming forward from this inquisition of education that’s hopeful. Academics and administrators are afraid for their careers, and students and learners of all ages are looking openly at other options (other options that enterprising speculators are at the ready to provide).

Dr. Steven F. Simmons's curator insight, May 17, 2013 8:06 AM

gregmhagar's insight:

A quick list of 7 learning styles. Of course, there seems to be as many learning styles as there are experts to define them and recently I've noticed the whole idea has come under scrutiny. However, I think they're still helpful in reminding designers/developers to cover all the bases and keep things diverse. Not every tool is a hammer as they say.
