Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy

Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
When Jessie Stommel tweeted "Start by trusting students. #4wordpedagogy" and invited others to join in making four-word pedagogy statements, he began an unexpected worldwide conversation.  More than 4,500 tweets followed, with humorous, provoking, and critical comments on education today.  The Twitter conversation Jessie started shows Twitter at its best, as a tool to begin honest…
NLafferty's insight:
With so much talk about the teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in the UK it seem that much of the focus is on data, retention and progression and less about how we improve the quality of teaching.  Struck by the simplicity of this hashtag and would like to see how we might try using it locally across our Schools to encourage us to think more about our pedagogies across different disciplines.  With my medical education hat on I wonder whether we could also start #4wordmededpedagogy or #4wordmededped which is a bit shorter.

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

"Maker education, when planned around skills acquisition, can enhance social-emotional development.

Self-Awareness: Making in all its forms requires a full range of skills including cognitive, physical, and affective skills. Given this need for multiple and diverse skill set, effective and successful making comes from an accurate assessment of one’s strengths and limitations as well as having optimism and confidence that challenges can be overcome within the making process. Example questions related to self-awareness and making include:

     * What strategies am I using to increase my awareness of my emotions and how they influence my performance during the making-related tasks?

     * What are my strengths given this particular making task?

     * What are my limitations and how can I use my strengths to overcome them? ..."


Via John Evans
NLafferty's insight:
This this post includes an infographic which summarises areas where students can gain self-awareness when involved in maker projects in the classroom. While the piece focuses on maker education in the school classroom it's also applicable to higher education. The areas of social-emotional development highlighted here resonate with the ones we've seen students identify in their reflective blogs when we run our Doctor as Digital Teacher SSC where they design and develop a digital learning resource.

Documenting Learning

Documenting Learning | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
As I've discussed in numerous posts, I am an experiential educator. I believe in and promote learning-by-doing and hands-on learning. I approach experiential learning from a cycle of learning which includes reflecting on and analysis of things done through learning-by-doing. https://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2016/01/13/a-natural-and-experiential-cycle-of-learning/ Reflection, as part of the experiential learning cycle, is often as or even more…
NLafferty's insight:
This post highlights the importance of encouaging students to reflect when they are engaged as creators of learning.  It's an approach we've taken in our Doctor as Digital Teacher SSC where students document their learning on a personal blog.  I think one thing that could be added to the visualisation of the learning cycle at play here is feedback.  Providing feedback on students' blog posts and in class discussions can also help support students in their personal reflection.

There's a lot of hype around learning analytics so refreshing to see a piece which highlights some issues.  The piece highlights that we need to be thinking more about digital learning environments than VLEs/LMSs. I agree. Looking at the various pieces of work done around minimum standards in VLEs it seems to me to be focussed on presenting information to students not on learning.

The Future of the University: Speculative Design for Innovation in Higher Education

The Future of the University: Speculative Design for Innovation in Higher Education | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
This essay proposes five models of innovation in higher education that expand our "Ideas of the University," envisioning educational start-ups in the spirit of entrepreneurial experimentation. The author seeks to realize each of these feasible utopias as a way to disrupt higher education.

Via Mark Smithers
NLafferty's insight:

Some interesting models presented here.  I particularly like that it highlights:

"The university is indeed ripe for disruption, but that disruption need not be limited to the MOOC-ization of higher education. Too many of our ideas about the future of the university involve technological solutions alone, which divert our attention from other equally efficacious forms of disruption."
