Faculty Focus Will Shift to Instruction

Faculty Focus Will Shift to Instruction | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

If the past is the prologue, we need only to survey some of the recent critical issues of debate and emerging trends that have had the greatest impact on the educational landscape for indicators of the role of postsecondary faculty in 2023. While traditionalists may be worried, many of the changes upon us challenge a system of elitism and exclusivity, makes room for greater equity among traditional and non-traditional faculty and pushes us to be more accountable for and to our students and accrediting bodies.

La Netnografía: Un Método de Investigación en Internet

La Netnografía: Un Método de Investigación en Internet | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

La netnografía se presenta como un nuevo método investigativo para indagar sobre lo que sucede en las comunidades virtuales, mas propiamente de lo que acontece en Internet. El método deviene de la aplicación de la etnografía al estudio del ciberespacio. Su pretensión transita por erigirse como ciencia de lo que ocurre en la red de redes, esta pretensión, reclamada por toda disciplina emergente, aún es difusa; se presenta más como una técnica de investigación de las vivencias en los espacios virtuales. Sus orígenes se sitúan en los Estados Unidos, su aplicación actual mas evidente es la expresada por el Marketing, en los estudios de mercado.

A Petapouca's curator insight, March 20, 2013 6:21 AM

En estos tiempos de hibridación, podemos asistir a la adopción de métodos de otras disciplinas, como el marketing digital o el periodismo de datos, para la investigación en ciencias sociales o humanidades. Las posibilidades van mucho más allá de la investigación de mercados, pues las conversaciones que se producen actualmente en la red son cada vez más variadas. En un estudio reciente, la ONTSI descubría que los usuarios de Internet (53,6%) manifiestan más interés en los asuntos políticos que los que no lo son (34,8%) - http://www.ontsi.red.es/ontsi/es/estudios-informes/estudio-de-la-demanda-y-uso-de-gobierno-abierto-en-espa%C3%B1-edici%C3%B3n-2013. Y ésto es sólo un ejemplo de cómo se configuran las nuevas comunidades online.

Breaking the Tyranny of the Academic Calendar - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Breaking the Tyranny of the Academic Calendar - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Higher education in the United States is measured in units of time: three-credit courses, 15-week semesters, and academic years with a fall and spring semester.

The decision by the Education Department on Tuesday to clarify its rules and outline a process for providing federal aid to students enrolled in “competency-based” programs has potentially far-reaching consequences beyond just rethinking how colleges award credits based on what students actually know instead of time spent in a seat. It might mark the beginning of reimagining the entire academic calendar and providing much-needed flexibility for students to pursue opportunities outside of standard courses that help shape their undergraduate lives.

SUNY Signals Major Push Toward MOOCs and Other New Educational Models - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

SUNY Signals Major Push Toward MOOCs and Other New Educational Models - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The State University of New York’s Board of Trustees on Tuesday endorsed an ambitious vision for how SUNY might use prior-learning assessment, competency-based programs, and massive open online courses to help students finish their degrees in less time, for less money.

The plan calls for “new and expanded online programs” that “include options for time-shortened degree completion.” In particular, the board proposed a huge expansion the prior-learning assessment programs offered by SUNY’s Empire State College.

The system will also push its top faculty members to build MOOCs designed so that certain students who do well in the courses might be eligible for SUNY credit.

Ultimately, the system wants to add 100,000 enrollments within three years, according to a news release.
