Compelling project - Higher Education at the Margins. Teaching refugees using computers and digital learning, the curriculum is meant to be both practical and inspiring. The history and tradition of learning among religious groups. I am not advocating conversion teaching, but this is different.
The founder of the Jesuits St. Ignatius of Loyola, wrote ""love consists in a mutual communication between two persons. That is, the one who gives and communicates to the beloved what he or she has... and the beloved in return does the same to the lover. Thus, if one has knowledge, one gives it to the other who does not. Each shares with the other."
This is an example of the use of technology merged with teachers at a point of need. Point of need is often harder to achieve than we realize. The refugee camps do not have access to the internet, MOOCs won't reach them as currently conceived, but there are ways.
Is this passion for teaching, and learning something that can be replicated digitally? Is it necessary?
Featured posts about the role of libraries in relation to Open Educational Resources
Ann Hulton's insight:
Libraries could play a strong role in the future of OER, MOOCs etc. Sorting through the maze of open access ejournals that are open access, peer-reviewed and freely available for download is a daunting task. Libraries know how to do this. Libraries may also be able to help find alternative ways for users of MOOCs to access scholarly research. This is especially important for graduate courses that require original research.
This paper proposes variations around the themes of Peer Observation of Teaching and Professional Conversations as tools to investigate the use and reuse of OER by teachers. It reports on two qualitative studies on the use and reuse of OER by language teachers at the Open University UK. Teachers use LORO (loro.open.ac.uk), an open repository of OER for language teaching, to select their teaching resources.
