A “Best of” List that Celebrates the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

A “Best of” List that Celebrates the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog -

 

It’s that time of the year when everybody is doing their “Best of 2014” lists, and I have one of my own that I’ve been wanting to do for some time now.


It will not come as a surprise to anyone that in order to prepare The Teaching Professor newsletter each month and this blog every week, I read a lot of pedagogical literature. But perhaps you would be surprised to know there are close to 100 pedagogical periodicals, at least that’s how many I am aware of at this point. When writing my book, Scholarly Work on Teaching and Learning, I did my best to find them all and when the book was finished I was quite confident I had. However, the book was out less than a week before I was getting notes about journals I had missed and I’m still discovering new ones. Most of these journals are discipline-based, but there’s a significant number of cross-disciplinary publications as well.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Scholarly articles worth tracking down.

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation?

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The failure of praise
Research has found that praise can actually undermine performance and self-esteem in many contexts. One study found that praise for intelligence leads to the belief by the recipient that their intelligence is fixed, and thus not something that they can influence through action or effort (Dweck, 2007). This is critical because intelligence is in fact malleable, and improved by taking risks. Students grow when they try something difficult that might lead to failure. Because failure is one of the most important tools for learning, growth requires a mindset that embraces challenge and the potential for failure.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I teach veteran teachers how to do something new.  My students are masters of their content. Most arrive with significant teaching skill and a good deal of anxiety at being out of their comfort zone. 


Any yet they persist. They take the RISK of failing and turn the opportunity into new learning.  


Of utmost importance in this article is the sound, research backed advice on how to give more effective feedback.  Indeed specific feedback trumps general praise.  This is an excellent and thought provoking read! 

more...
Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, January 10, 7:28 PM

"Positive and negative feedback are tied to objective standards of excellence, and give the message that the goal of education is to reach standards of excellence, not gain teacher approval." And there you have it.

Lisa Jones's comment, January 11, 8:27 AM
http://www.aft.org/periodical/american-educator/winter-2005-2006/ask-cognitive-scientist. Check out this article on praise. I found it to be very interesting and the parameters for praise given here are some good practices to follow when giving praise. It can be done with without undermining student motivation. Don't let "titles" get in the way...call it praise or feedback...we all need and instinctively give one form or the other. Both articles are a great read!
Simon Awuyo's curator insight, January 16, 2:26 AM

Praise is an incentive. Every one likes to be praised for work well done.

Harold Jarche: uber-proof your labour - Can Teaching be 'Uberized'?

Harold Jarche: uber-proof your labour  - Can Teaching be 'Uberized'? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Harold Jarche "Platform capitalism is beginning to define the economy for the second Gilded Age we seem to be entering. It requires 4 contributing factors, which when combined, create a perfect opportunity for the “uberization” of almost any industry...


...Any work that can be billed by the hour is probably a commodity. Any work that can be standardized is a commodity in the eyes of platform capitalists. Any work that can be represented as a flowchart, and eventually put into a software program, is a commodity.


What’s left is work that is creativeSolving complex or wicked problems is another area for human workDealing with people as individuals, requires human compassion and empathy."  (emphasis mine - doconnor)


Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Horold Jarche always gets me thinking.  Thanks Harold for provoking the question: Can teaching be 'uberized'?


Can the art we've practiced and evolved become something parceled out via an app to anyone with a demand?  


There is no doubt that much can be learned without a teacher. Mobile learning is real and useful. On demand apps & and the endless supply of YouTube How-To videos can provide us with process knowledge as soon as we come up with a keyword search. 


In a world where information is just a few 'taps' away, all we need is the education to turn information into knowledge. 


As an online teacher I specialize in creating environments that promote self-directed learning.  I've shifted my stance from teacher to guide. My work is to help my students become independent thinkers, learners, and teachers.


Could very clever programming put me out of work? Perhaps.


However,  I believe (based on many years of online teaching experience) that my empathy and compassion for my students can be delivered in a very real and meaningful way via the technologies I teach 'in'.  I doubt that there will be an app for that. 


If someday we can each have our own on demand, mobile and empathetic AI Mentor that develops our capacity to truly learn, then the world becomes a more educated place and everyone wins.  


Until then, a new semester is about to being and I'll be teaching online with all the skills at my command. 8-) ~ Dennis

This is a most valuable and important infographic on online netiquette on discussion boards. Some of the important pointers are that one should not capitalize all the letters in a word or more. Somehow in our haste to post our points of view, we capitalize entire words to grab attention, which in itself is bad netiquette! Also, I liked the one that suggests that we should be polite towards others. In our haste to pitch in an interesting debate, we repeat questions and statements. While participating in online discussion forums, we also need to respect another's point of view. Great infographic though!

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL -- THE Journal

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL -- THE Journal | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
In any given classroom, there are invariably learners who simply don’t connect with what’s being taught. Lectures can be easy to tune out. A textbook can feel dense and boring to finish. Even a video can pose limitations for learners with sight or hearing difficulties. When these are the only options available, some learners are bound to fall behind without requesting special support, while others will surge ahead. Differentiation is one way to bridge this gap, and another is adapting the curriculum to suit all learners, instead of adjusting it to support the needs of each one.


That latter approach, called Universal Design for Learning (UDL), operates under a handful of broad principles that mainly concern themselves with the what, how and why of learning.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

UDL - Universal Design for Learning promises to help us design so our curriculum can 'suit all learners'.   This is a lucid overview of an essential design principle.

Tony Bates:


"In education, a ‘portfolio’ refers to a personal collection of information describing, documenting and recording a person’s achievements and learning. Portfolios are used for many different purposes such as a tool for evaluating leaning, for accreditation of prior experience, for continuing professional development, to assist a job application, or for a certification of competences acquired through a course or from work experience . An educational portfolio is mainly used to encourage personal reflection and involves the exchange of ideas and feedback. Many people have already used some kind of portfolio. Most of them have built a portfolio to collect evidence required to get certificates or to show what they have learned in a concrete situation or training. The development of information and learning technologies has led to the development of digital portfolios or electronic portfolios, commonly referred as e-Portfolios."
