Accreditation and Student Learning Outcomes

Accreditation and Student Learning Outcomes | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

How can colleges best measure student learning? Should measures focus on subject-matter knowledge, skills such as critical thinking, or both? What roles do faculty members and administrators play in determining the measures? How can students be better prepared to learn well? What is the role of motivation in student learning – and in measuring student learning? This compilation of articles and opinion essays from Inside Higher Ed with the support of ETS offers a range of ideas and perspectives on these issues.

¡Qué dirían algunos grandes pedagogos como Dewey, Freinet, Decroly, Montessori o Freire si vivieran en nuestra época! Se preguntarían ¿qué ha pasado con la educación? ¿Qué ha pasado con todas las corrientes pedagógicas que estaban apareciendo? ¿Por qué no funciona la escuela?….   ¡Qué dificil responder a todas!

Parece que en otros tiempos, la educación era más importante; y había personas que se precupaban por conseguir mejorar el proceso educativo. Ahora, sólo se piensa en la educación de calidad. Sí, de calidad. Ese apellido que le han puesto los políticos a la educación y que ha contagiado a toda la sociedad. ¡Cómo si los políticos supieran qué es eso de educación de calidad!

After weeks of delays, San Jose State U. releases research report on online courses | Inside Higher Ed

After weeks of delays, San Jose State U. releases research report on online courses | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

San Jose State University on Wednesday quietly released the full research report on the for-credit online courses it offered this spring through the online education company Udacity. The report, marked by delays and procedural setbacks, suggests it may be difficult for the university to deliver online education in this format to the students who need it most.

The report's release lands on the opposite end of the spectrum from the hype generated in January, when university officials, flanked by the Udacity CEO Sebastian Thrun and California Governor Jerry Brown, unveiled the project during a 45-minute press conference. The pilot project, featuring two math courses and one statistics course, aimed to bring high-quality education to students for a fraction of the cost of the university's normal tuition. Wednesday's report went live on the university’s website sometime before noon Pacific time, appearing with little fanfare on the research page of the principal investigator for the project, Elaine D. Collins. Collins serves as associate dean in the College of Science.
