Tina Jameson's curator insight, April 30, 7:18 PM

For those wanting to seriously develop their online skills at a post graduate level this is a possible option:

"Prepare for designing online courses, teaching in blended or online classes or training in e-learning settings."
"The courses are designed for experienced trainers and educators interested in entering the field of online teaching or those who wish to blend web-based instruction into their face-to-face classes."

Why is MIT ignorning 25 years of reseach into online learning? | Tony Bates | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Tony Bates: "In my previous post, there were two sessions at the LINC 2013 conference that referred specifically to MIT’s own strategies for technology-enabled learning within MIT. These resulted in my asking the following question towards the end of the conference:


Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning and 100 years research into how students learn in its design of online courses? "

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!

After all, if a web site’s content cannot be accessed, it’s not a very good website to that person or group. One example: Let’s say a page bears meaningful text-content in a image. If that image isn’t visible or readable, and if alternate text isn’t provided, the content will be lost. It might be just fine for you, but for others it may be quite difficult to deal with.

Curation in Learning | Ben Betts is... | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Ben Betts: We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:

Nigel Coutts: Value the Process "beauty of unfinished work" | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do.

There is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define  a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to it. With a shift in our mindset we might be able to celebrate this process and encourage our students to value the learning that occurs along the way.

This aligns with my feeling about summative evaluation... aka grades.  If you want to terminate the process, grade the product. 


My students create an e-portfolio as they complete classes in our program. Will 'grading' an e-portfolio halt the process?  I certainly hope not.
