Technology Outlook > Australian Tertiary Education 2013-2018 | The New Media Consortium | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The New Media Consortium and Open Universities Australia jointly released the Technology Outlook for Australian Tertiary Education 2013-2018: An NMC Horizon Project Regional Analysis. This report applies the process developed for the NMC Horizon Project, with a focus on identifying and describing emerging technologies likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in tertiary institutions across Australia. Twelve emerging technologies are recognized across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. View the work that produced the report at www.aus.wiki.nmc.org.

The Digital World Demands a New Mode of Reading

The Digital World Demands a New Mode of Reading | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Anyone living even a moderately wired life has heard the complaints: We can't concentrate the way we used to, before the Internet and its temptations came along to distract us. We used to get lost in books; now we get lost in the digital surf.

 

Alan Jacobs will be either an inspiration or a rebuke to those who feel that technology has ruined them as serious readers. A professor of English at Wheaton College, in Illinois, he spends plenty of time online. He's active on Twitter and blogs regularly for The Atlantic. But he reads more now than he ever has.

“I wouldn’t take it if you offered it to me for free” said the head of the school I visited  in the huge Katutura Township on the outskirts of Windhoek in Africa. In 2008 some guys turned up started to drill four holes in the wall, installed dial-up computers, and left explaining almost nothing.

As we all know, just giving students technology will not be as productive as giving them the tehcnology and guidence in the form of an educator, who knows the big picture.

College is less thorny, but every bit as emotional. People whose self worth is tied up in possessing or providing a half-million dollar Ivy League education don’t particularly love the idea that it should be made available for free online to the rest of the world.

Conflicted: Faculty and Online Education, 2012 | Inside Higher Ed

Conflicted: Faculty and Online Education, 2012 | Inside Higher Ed | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Faculty members are far less excited by, and more fearful of, the recent growth of online education than are academic technology administrators, according to a new study by Inside Higher Ed and the Babson Survey Research Group.

But professors are hardly the luddites many still assume them to be. Nearly half of the 4,564 faculty members surveyed, three-quarters of whom are full-time professors, said the rise of online education excites them more than it frightens them.

On-Campus Orientation Program Benefits Online Faculty | Faculty Focus

On-Campus Orientation Program Benefits Online Faculty | Faculty Focus | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The theory behind the visitation program is to foster a positive relationship between the faculty and the institution; therefore, enhancing faculty-student engagement and interaction." ... "The ability to network fosters a sense of community that allows individuals to benchmark their performance against fellow instructors, increasing teaching effectiveness, student learning, and alignment with the university’s goals. Based on survey results, faculty indicated they enjoyed meeting fellow instructors that teach within their college and might even teach the same course in a different section."
