E-Learning: Going down to the crossroads. Track 1: Tramps like us baby we were born to run: Singing to you, singing with you, singing for you, not singing at you… | Peter Bryant

"The VLE and other forms of institutionalised e-learning can create barriers between the teacher and the learner. The more automated the system becomes, the more learner feels disconnected from the network forming around them. Is this the same as the way rock stars became disconnected from their audiences, before punk smashed the wall down and through confrontation and challenge made the audience re-connect, often viscerally? Are we at a juncture where e-learning has made the academic the rock star? And if so, how do we explode and deconstruct that myth, hand power back to the audience, bring them on stage, show them a few chords and make them a member of the band? How do we encourage the learners to make their own band?"

 

KF:  A terrific opinion piece that draws a rich analogy between punk rock and academia inthe age of eLearning...   can't wait for the second track.
