How Unconventional, Experiential Learning Is Reshaping Higher Education

How Unconventional, Experiential Learning Is Reshaping Higher Education | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
In this article, I highlight the dynamic diversity of unconventional, experiential learning providers and related exemplars, who promote fairly personalized instruction, who do not merely instruct online, and who are not degree-granting programs or institutions. These exemplars — the majority related to entrepreneurship — are by no means comprehensive. I caught up with these folks recently.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 21, 6:32 AM

Jackie Gerstein has a number of posts that look at the Maker Movement, and in this post she discusses looks at two issues within the movement that have come to her attention through social media (quoted from post):

* Maker movement initiatives are often driven by more affluent white males.

* The maker movement is too often being associated with the tech stuff – Arduinos, Littlebits, Makey-Makeys – stuff that less affluent schools and community programs can afford.

Gerstein shares evidence that addresses each of these issues and then moves on to discuss how we can provide learners with maker opportunities at minimal costs. This portion of the post is divided into three sections:

* Changing Perceptions about Stuff

* Changing Perceptions about What Activities are Considered Making

* Changing Perceptions: Making is about a Mindset and a Process Not About Stuff

Her bottom line, let's focus on the act of making. If you are considering adding a maker corner to your classroom next year, or have the opportunity to work with learners this summer and would like them to become a part of the maker movement, take the time to peruse this post.

Strategies for Addressing Student Fear in the Classroom

Strategies for Addressing Student Fear in the Classroom | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it

Upon setting foot in the classroom at the beginning of the semester, many students experience varying degrees of anxiety or fearfulness. As educators, we often sense nervousness among our pupils as we introduce ourselves and hand out copies of the course syllabus to review. Most students settle in shortly, but some may remain consistently fearful. Is it possible that their high levels of fear negatively affect their ability to learn in the classroom from week to week? In this article, we discuss the role of debilitating fear in some students’ lives and identify ways that educators can help them attain success despite their anxiety.

I’ve written about a number of video, audio, and collage creation tools, with WeVideo, Audacity, and PicMonkey topping some of my lists. However, it can be a challenge for students to locate copyright-friendly media when using these tools for presentations or idea sharing. It’s always best for students to create materials or use ones that are in the public domain. Here are some of the best resources I’ve found for the latter.

Book Review: Ten Strategies for Building Community with Technology by Bill  Brandon | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Times change, and instructional methods change with them. One concept that instructional designers should become
familiar
with is that of the role of community in learning, and the necessity of learners feeling themselves involved in a
community. A
new book takes a strategic look at this approach and provides the necessary background you need to get started.
