What Do Students Learn Through Discussion? - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus

What Do Students Learn Through Discussion? - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
It’s a good question and on days when getting them to discuss feels a lot like prodding reluctant mules, it’s easy to be cynical about learning outcomes. But most faculty believe in discussion and try hard to make it work.


Using a qualitative design, researchers identified four different ways students reported they were using discussion to promote learning.


To challenge ideas – both their own and others with the goal of arriving at a more complete understanding


To develop ideas – using the ideas of others to improve their own thinking


To acquire ideas – using discussion as a way of collecting ideas


To check ideas – making sure that their ideas were the right ones; that they were learning the right things

Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes - The Joy of Stats - BBC Four

More about this programme: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00wgq0l
Hans Rosling's famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sport's commentator's style to reveal the story of the world's past, present and future development. Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before - using augmented reality animation. In this spectacular section of 'The Joy of Stats' he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes. Plotting life expectancy against income for every country since 1810, Hans shows how the world we live in is radically different from the world most of us imagine.

The Importance of Doubt, Asking Questions and Not Knowing | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Why is it so important to doubt, question everything and not know?! Check out Socrates’ article on SingularityWeblog.com to find out.


Not knowing, just like other cases of being uncomfortable, is a great incentive for personal growth. Progress always comes at the point of resistance. Getting uncomfortable and willing to be uncertain, to not know, to ask questions, to err and to fail, is the best and only way to learn, grow, progress and move forward.

But, professors’ use of social media shows we are behind the relationship curve when it comes to connecting with students.
