If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy

If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy | Café puntocom Leche | Scoop.it
MOOCs e Pedagogia Crítica não são companheiros óbvias. O hype em torno MOOCs tem-se centrado principalmente em uma marca de sálvia sobre o material didático estágio em desacordo direto com a ênfase de Pedagogia Crítica na agência aluno. Apesar disso - ou, mais precisamente, por causa desta - que permanecem, como Paulo Freire, esperançosos críticos pedagogos. Em Pedagogia da Esperança, ele escreve: "Estou esperançoso, não por mera teimosia, mas fora de, um imperativo concreto existencial." A simples verdade é que temos de ter esperança, pois a esperança reside possibilidade. Mas, também como Freire, reconhecemos que a esperança deve ser equilibrada com a ação e luta. Não há nenhum uso em mera esperança. Cedendo autoridade é um empreendimento ativo. Pedagogia Crítica requer um compromisso com a realidade que é persistente e exigente, e que o envolvimento deve resultar em uma ação real, mesmo que a ação é exemplar e minuto. Para efetuar qualquer mudança é para efetuar a mudança. Oferecemos aqui seis teses que trabalham para reimaginar MOOCs - e educação aberta de forma mais ampla - como locais potenciais de resistência e libertação. Essas teses são provisórios, destina-se a convidar conversa, na natureza da noção de diálogo de Freire.

Elaine Watkins's curator insight, October 24, 2013 10:29 PM

I was one of the 36% of students who completed the Equine Nutrition course. I can tell you why I was able to... It was because there was excellent support from the lecturers, easy to access video lectures, no hard deadlines until the end of the course, meaning there was much more flexibility for people, like me, who work full time and can't always complete quizzes by 6pm each Monday for example. I could do it in my own time, as long as I stayed within the course duration and I found that some weeks I had much more time and could complete 2 weeks worth of readings & quizzes. 

In contrast, I just attempted to complete an Animal Behaviour course, but unfortunately due to hard deadlines each Monday, I was unable to complete quizzes on time and therefore could not achieve the marks necessary to pass, so I gave up halfway through. I have still completed readings and watched lectures, but with no result as the quizzes did not count after the weekly hard deadlines. Obviously many people had the same issue as me, because out of 24950, only

1428 people completed the course.

I believe course designers need to revisit their courses and ensure they are flexible enough for full time workers to do in their own time.

An integral part of any online learning environment is the social synergy created via communication and discussion.  This is where deep reflection and learning take place.  Are students not feeling connected.  Are they collaborating and creating something new with the knowledge they have gained and sharing it with others?  Learning must me meaningful and applicable.

The emergence of #MOOCs: part 2 – The future of education and learning |Sui Fai John Mak

The emergence of #MOOCs: part 2 – The future of education and learning |Sui Fai John Mak | Café puntocom Leche | Scoop.it
Following the emergence of MOOCs, What will be the future of education? Would it be based on the MOOC model, as I have explored last year? With the proliferation of MOOCs this year, MOOC providers ...

 

Comment: a collection of opinions on the MOOC phenomenon. The future is not with the xMOOC, but more with something akin to the cMOOC, would be my quick reading of John's line of argument: "The real revolution that we might anticipate in education would be a paradigm shift where education is about encouraging and supporting learners to develop themselves into creative, autonomous, independent and critical learners who could initiate their own questions, and to explore and implement their own solutions to their questions, in study, and life." And as ever, the question is of course how we achieve that lofty goal: how do we guide learners on their way to achieve this state of 'independent' learner? I agree, not by planning their learning life in the minutest details and effectively make them puppets on the teacher's string. But not either by leaving them completely to their own devices. So for me the question is one of designing a learning environment which is efficient and effective at helping learners become independent learners (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

#MOOCS: The new higher education? - Jim Farmer

#MOOCS: The new higher education? - Jim Farmer | Café puntocom Leche | Scoop.it

There is a bubble, in that lots of organisations are thinking that they “have to get on board with MOOCs [Massive Open Online Courses] or be left behind”, says Seb Schmoller

 

Comment: Largely quoting from discussions held at the UK's Association for Learning Technology forum, Jim provides a balanced acoount of how to answer the question of whether MOOCs are the new higher education. He extensively quotes Dianne Laurillard, OU UK pundit and known from such books as 'Rethinking University Education' and 'Teaching as a Design Science'. She concludes that xMOOCs cannot provide education, though they may have a role in education: "“MOOCs can be ‘educational’ in the way that TV programmes can be, and when we try them out, as I think we certainly should, we should be trying to extend the format to be more supportive of the learner, while respecting the ‘Massive’ aspect. But a genuine MOOC could never provide the kind of personal feedback to the learner that is the essence of education (along with useful certification of what they have learned). That is the labour-intensive variable cost of education that requires the teaching staff to be massive too. Automated intelligent personalised feedback to learners on the basis of their actions is one of the grand challenges that learning technologies have not yet stepped up to, sadly. I do believe there is potential for that.”

Stop polarising the MOOCs debate | Cathy Davidson - University World News | Café puntocom Leche | Scoop.it

The academic conversation on MOOCs is starting to polarise in exactly the talking-past-one-another way that so many complex conversations evolve: with very smart points on either side, but not a lot of recognition that the validity of certain key points on one side does not undermine the validity of certain key points on the other.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 17, 2013 7:44 AM

A plea for a balanced view should always be taken seriously. After all, what is the point of a debate if you're unwilling to change your opinion, Habermas already noted many years ago. This does not mean that one can only articulate opinions that take a kind of middle ground, that are an amalgamate of extant opinions. Indeed, it means that one should articulate one's opinion as precisely and clearly as possible in order that others can critique it. Only that way, we can learn what different conceptions of MOOCs there are and how we think about each one of them. That is what I try to achieve through these pages, and that is exactly what Cathy Davidson does in this article of hers. 

 

She notes that perhaps MOOCs are a way neoliberals hope to make money, but that that observation does not exempt us from addressing the issue of their popularity. She acknowledges that rising tuition costs are a driver for MOOCs but puts this in perspective by establishing that i) there is no evidence that MOOCs do anything about those costs, ii) costs may have risen faster than inflation, but not faster than, say, the cost of luxury travel. 

 

In conclusion, Cathy urges that "we should all be emphasising, in every conversation: in the complex, changing world in which we live, advanced learning is necessary. Not a luxury. It deserves the public support of other necessities. Advanced education is far too important to price out of the market for all but the global 1%." (@pbsloep)

Will #MOOCs open elite universities to excessive corporate influence? | Inside Higher Ed | Mark Edmundson | Café puntocom Leche | Scoop.it

"It’s possible that the incursion of the Internet market into the universities will be something like the incursion of big-time college sports. There are any number of American schools that appear now to have been swallowed by their sports programs. ... Something similar may happen with Internet education. Certain colleges may become addicted to the revenue that Internet courses draw and they will deform themselves in the attempt to make more and more money. They will adulterate their intellectual goods for the marketplace and perhaps those goods will sell briskly. "

 

Comment: Yet another pebble in the pond of opinions on how MOOCs might affect education, and a good one at that. The piece ends in an optimistic note: "The quest for truth will always collide in time with the quest for profits." I hope with the author that this is how the story ends. But once you allow money to dictate academic values, there's no real going back, I fear. Look at the film industry (the author himself mentions Hollywood), the music industry. Financial gain is the great homogeniser, we should never allow it to even aspire to that role in academia.  

Note: For now, the bleak scenario applies to the USA in particular, but ever more countries in the world seem to be wiling to organise themselves in such a way that financial arguments are the ultimate and only judge of the policies they choose to adopt and ignore. If that is true, nobody is immune to the scenario sketched here. (peter sloep, @pbsloep)
