Does teaching presence matter in a MOOC? - by Terry Anderson

Does teaching presence matter in a MOOC? - by Terry Anderson
Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, March 14, 1:51 AM

"The study concluded that teacher presence had no significant relation to course completion, most badges awarded, intent to register in subsequent MOOCs or course satisfaction."

 

"However, the findings is predicted by my Interaction Equivalency Theory in which I argue that if one of the three forms of student interaction (student-student, student-teacher, student content) is at a high level, the other two can be reduced or even eliminated."

 

That it is possible to learn on one's own is not exactly a surprise. Otherwise there would be no autodidacts, nobody would ever have been able to learn from a book. Surprising, though, that the presence of a teacher seems to have no impact on the learning outcome. On the other hand... students taking part in MOOCs usually have an academic background already. So they developed learning strategies and are able to compensate the absence of a teacher by interacting with other students or looking for other sources.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 23, 8:20 AM

Anderson has a provocative post discussing a recent study by Tomkin and Charlevoix (2014) reporting that MOOC course satisfaction, completion or decision to enroll in another MOOC had no relationship with teacher interaction or presence in the MOOC.  This kind of thing always gets teachers' panties in a bunch, as we know.  Anderson argues that these results are predicted by his "Interaction Equivalency Theory where one of the three forms of student interaction (student-student, student-teacher, student content) is at a high level, the other two can be reduced or even eliminated. "  As an online prof, I would argue that to get the equivalency over to the student-student or student-content side of the triangle, the course and content have to be very artfully and intentionally designed by the teacher with a great investment of time and skill.  So there's presence of interaction and there's presence by design.  It's presence by design to structure social and content engagement that allows the more traditional 'teacher presence' to be missing.  The exciting thing is that is has much leverage.  As a side note, people shouldn't assume that these arguments are meant to throw teachers out of the classroom and make all classes instructorless.  Humans are social animals and good teachers provide mentoring and social connection in ways far beyond course content that are difficult in the scale of a MOOC.   These are important questions, however, as part of the quest to find ways of making quality education available to the millions who don't have the access to educational opportunities most of us take for granted.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | EduInfo | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

Rhizomatic Learning Is A Metaphor For How We Learn

Rhizomatic Learning Is A Metaphor For How We Learn | EduInfo | Scoop.it

If we’re matching the learning theories and instructional strategies with existing social conditions, we’ve really got some work to do.

 

Existing theories, including Connectivism, Constructivism, Communal Constructivism, and the above idea of rhizomatic learning, freely allude to both the potency and inherent chaos of crowds. Direct instruction depends on the credibility of both teacher and curriculum from the perspective of the learner, and, more optimistically, on homogeneous schema of learners across a classroom.

 

Rhizomatic learning is not interested in your data-driven instructional strategy you’re hoping to use in operation of an outcomes-based and backwards-designed learning system.

 

After all, you–or someone before you–has parsed the universe itself into but a handful of “content areas,” listed exactly what students should come to know, and then placed 30 students by age and geographic location and asked that you lead them all to “proficiency” of each standard, no matter their background, will to learn, unique interests, or, more critically, existing schema.

 

And the key to make all of this magic happen? Pre-assessment and resultant data to constantly monitor and revise planned instruction. Data doesn’t lie.

 

That’s pretty ambitious.

 

Rhizomatic learning takes another approach.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 3:20 PM

It is interesting that the work of people like Whitehead, Dewey, and even Horace Mann is being recirculated under new labels. William Doll has used the first two and Jerome Bruner to speak to the idea of post-modern curriculum that accepts complexity and personal human experience as essential underpinnings to learning. Perhaps, we reconstruct learning per the work of Bill Pinar and Madeline Grumet? In this way, we open up new pathways rather than following someone down dark and dreary pathways. It reminds me of Antonio Machado's poetry:

 

“Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again."

This article effected me in the way of how I learn best. I am an audible learner but i also like to have a hard book to flip the pages of and look back on, instead of having to switch screens . Part of me has an aversion to reading long articles/stories/content online because in a textbook, i can use post-it notes, fold over pages, and flip back and forth easily. It is great that they are trying to make everything uniform with teachers and students, but not everyone learns the same or enjoys staring at a screen for countless hours in order to finish their homework. The internet is also a huge distraction.

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?)

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?) | EduInfo | Scoop.it
If you haven’t tried a free MOOC, I’d do it sooner than later. In recent weeks, the whole MOOC project took a hit when a University of Pennsylvania study found what was becoming empirically obvious — that MOOCs generally have very low participation and completion rates, and what’s more, most of the students taking the courses are “disproportionately educated, male, [and] wealthy,” and from the United States. This study, combined with other disappointing experiments and findings, will likely make universities think twice about sinking money into creating MOOCs (they can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 to develop). It might take another 6-12 months to see the shift. But I’d hazard a guess that this January might be the peak of the free MOOC trend. Enjoy them while they last. Whatever their shortcomings, they can be quite informative, and you can’t beat the price.

Mfaculty's curator insight, January 7, 7:44 PM

The insights revealed through the previous studies serves to codify what many educators, and even more marketers knew intuitively; free always begs the question of quality. Don't hear what I'm not saying. I'm not saying ALL MOOCs are low quality, I'm merely saying that without academic rigor and effective management, even the best intentions can slide off the rails.

 

I too had noted a number of previous MOOC supporters distancing themselves from the initiatives. Was there ever an identified demand for MOOCs, or were they simply a result of benevolent thinking? Regardless, it is interesting that the 'target audience' for MOOCs are apparently the ones taking least advantage of them. Perhaps the age old marketing rendition of supply and demand has merit still has merit.

I just 'test drove' this online application - it was very fast and accurately caught my spelling errors. As a basic tool for students, I think it is, or will be, one that they can use before they turn to the writing tutors. I don't advocate trying to replace professional writing tutors with this (or any other) online tool, but it would certainly reduce the number of common errors made in student writings.

 

Since it is a free service, I would recommend educators consider giving it a test drive in their writing courses to determine whether or not any value is added in doing so. While there are plenty of word processing tools avialble for students to use in order to hone in on their writing, this one is free and seems to adequately, and quickly, perform the basics.

 

Not really an endorsement, as much as a recommendation for other to consider testing for themselves.
