Professors' emphasis on student-centered teaching methods hits 25-year high

Professors' emphasis on student-centered teaching methods hits 25-year high | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

More emphasis on student-centered instruction while online teaching slowly grows.More ethnically diverse faculty, but faculty who are women and non-white feel they must worker harder to be seen as legitimate scholars. This and more observations from UCLA’s survey of over 16,000 full-time faculty.

Daniel Tan's insight:

Changing education one campus, course, class, lesson, student at a time. However, the starting point to the response is still the greatest challenge - the professor, lecturer, trainer or teacher.

 

In most cases, the students are more ready than the instructor.

 

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

 

But when the teacher is not ready, the students might disappear :)

Faculty are leading many necessary innovations in higher ed. A new report commissioned by the Gates Foundations looks at what faculty are doing to change higher ed, and what gets in their way.

Daniel Tan's insight:

When faculty innovate, usefulness is assumed and built-in.

 

The challenges is usually transferability (or cross usefulness), scalability and critical mass/sustainability.

Due to their common connectivity, they are globally more alike than the Gen Y, X and baby boomers.

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, October 15, 2014 2:27 PM

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

The landscape of competency-based education: Enrollments, demographics, and affordability - AEI | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
Competency-based education, broadly defined as a form of higher education in which credit is provided on the basis of student learning rather than credit or clock hours, has begun to catch the attention of federal and state policymakers, foundations, and colleges. Among the model’s promising features are its potential to lower college costs and serve adult students in need of flexibility.

Got Skills? Why Online Competency-Based Education Is the Disruptive Innovation for Higher Education | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

My thoughts precisely. Those who think higher ed is "in crisis" have a vested interest in selling this idea, particularly because they wish to monetize higher ed the way they have other industries.
