What I Learned from Teaching a MOOC — The Future of Education — Medium

What I Learned from Teaching a MOOC — The Future of Education — Medium | Digital Education | Scoop.it
A few months ago, as a result of a serendipitous conversation with a learning futurist and educator Maria Andersen, and having thought…
Tony Peck's insight:

An interesting artcile looking at an experience with MOOC's and concluding really that they won't replace Universities - but then who really believed they would.

 

However they do provide another way of learning that works for a lot of people. getting 10% completion for a huge cohort is still a lot of people who have achieved a learning objective.

In the heat of political tensions around school funding, Education Minister Christopher Pyne has been forced to respond to longstanding debates about equity in Australian education. On ABC's Lateline last week, Pyne said ...
Tony Peck's insight:

An interesting Fact Check on statments by the Federal Minister for Education on equity in education: '...when the latest PISA data is broken down further, Australia appears far from equitable. For example, OECD data suggest young Australians in the lowest socio-economic quartile perform much worse on PISA than the rest and those in the highest quartile perform significantly better.'

TAFE Victoria

The AEU has advised that state politicians are reporting TAFE cuts from the recent budget cuts as the biggest single issue they are being asked about in the last decade.
 
There have been over 677 reports in the media about TAFE cuts since March this year. Sue Mandley from the Gordon has set up a very informative site curating any media coverage of the TAFE cuts. Check it out here: http://www.scoop.it/t/tafe-in-victoria?page=1
 
Important diary dates:
 
Monday 02 July: Mornings with Jon Faine on 774 ABC will be dedicating the entire show to the TAFE issue on Monday 2 July (next Monday) This will be broadcast from Cobram. Please make your voice heard by calling the program and letting the listeners know how you feel about the TAFE cuts: http://www.abc.net.au/melbourne/programs/melbourne_mornings/
 
Wednesday 01 August: The TAFE4All rallies are going suburban and on this date there will be a rally staged at NMIT Preston. Encourage your colleagues, students and friends to attend and if you have suggestions for students or teachers who would like to address the rally and share their story - or for ways to make the day as effective as possible please let us know!
 
Thursday 16 August: TAFE4All Melbourne Metropolitan rally and march from the state library.
 
TAFE4All promotional materials:
 
Badges, bumper stickers, posters all help get the message out to the public about our fight to save TAFE. Rachel Wilson and I will be distributing these materials to the various campuses next semester. If you can't wait please email our sub branch president Craig Jones with your name, department, campus and requirements and he will forward material to you via internal mail.
 
10 ways you can spread the word about TAFE
 
1. Whack a bumper sticker on your car, letterbox, child's forehead!
2. Email your local politicians via the TAFE4All campaign: http://tafe4all.org.au/
3. Jam the switchboard of Jon Faine's show next Monday.
4. Read, share and comment on all the news articles about TAFE. http://www.scoop.it/t/tafe-in-victoria?page=1
5. Think of a way to make our NMIT rally effective and newsworthy: organise a band, find an inspiring speaker, ask a celebrity to appear, run nude across St Georges Road*. Wednesday 01 August
6. Rug up warm and march in the Melbourne rally. Thursday 16 August
7. Make an eye catching poster for the rally.
8. Jump onto your AEU NMIT sub branch portal site and add your own comments and discussions. https://staff.nmit.vic.edu.au/departments/AEU/Pages/default.aspx
9. Spread the word, forward this email to all your colleagues who may not be union members...yet.
10. Join the AEU!
 
Rachel Wilson and I will be spending some time next semester working hard for the sub branch, visiting campuses and spreading the word. Feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help.
 
Kind regards

Peter Haydon Druery's curator insight, April 5, 2014 4:54 AM

The Greens are the only party that seem to be reading the public's disdain at the savage cuts being made to their publicly owned TAFE System. The majority of people support TAFE so why don't our various state governments?  They make these cuts at their political peril come the next state elections. The Greens and strong TAFE champion and supporter, Dr John Kaye, are right. Please support the Greens with this very important campaign. Stop the TAFE Cuts now. Please like and SHARE to support this......and post that SELFIE!

A thoughtful piece. I don't agree with many of his fears, but agree that we need to ensure that we use different educational startegies because they are sound, not just because thats what we do - in this case he is concerned that we adpot digital technology unthinkingly... worth a look and think.

TAFE in the era of skills reform

TAFE in the era of skills reform | Digital Education | Scoop.it
5 January 2014 .........................................................................................................................................................................................
Tony Peck's insight:

A great contribution both historically to TAFE over many years and in this article as a thoughtful bookend to her career in TAFE. I like Leesa Wheelahans approach, from a community development viewpoint -

 

She sayss...'We’ve not had a discussion on what the role of TAFE in society is, and that’s been the problem, and because there’s been no recognition  that TAFE plays a role in society and not just in providing skills  needed for specific jobs.'

 

Worth while read!
