George Siemens (TEDxEdmonton): Openness: Why learners should know about, and influence, how decisions are made about their learning | Fast forward MOOCS and online learning | Scoop.it
Mark F. Christopher's insight:

"My argument is that openness has not been oversold and that increased openness (of content, teaching/learning, analytics, policy, data, and technology) is really the only path forward for reform. Systems can be closed and blackboxed only once they are working well and the context in which they exist is stable. When everything is in a state of flux, we need opportunities for ideas to collide, innovations to be shared, concepts to be rehashed and mashedup, and iterative improvements to occur. Education today – at all levels – faces the challenge of tremendous change and unstettledness. Rigid systems break in periods of flux."

Two years old but well worth your time. Charles Jennings looks at the eight reasons to focus on informal learning. They are:

There are imperatives for informal learningLearning is a process, not a series of of eventsMost learning occurs outside of the classroomThe vast majority of learning is socialA lot of formal learning is ineffectivePeople learn better when they are in chargeThere’s inherent inertia in formal approachesInformal and social learning are cost-effective

The word experiential essentially means that learning and development are achieved through personally determined experience and involvement, rather than on received teaching or training, typically in group, by observation, listening, study of theory or hypothesis, or some other transfer of skills or knowledge.

Siew Leng Lim's curator insight, August 23, 2013 12:33 AM

Based solely on the flowchart and definition offered, it appears that learner is assumed to have the ability to reflect upon completing the activity. I would believe if the activity is implemented using a problem-based approach in a small team environment where there are some guidance from a facilitator, would this concept of experiential learning be a more effective one.

Online Learning: a Manifesto | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Fast forward MOOCS and online learning | Scoop.it

by Jesse Stommel

 

Online learning is not the whipping boy of higher education. As a classroom teacher first and foremost, I have no interest in proselytizing for online learning, but to roundly condemn it is absurd. Online learning is too big and variable a target. It would be like roundly condemning the internet or all objects made from paper.

Disruptive Pedagogies and Technologies in Universities | Terry Anderson and Rory McGreal

" This paper is a reaction to the increasing high cost of higher education and the resulting inaccessibility for the millions of potential learners now seeking opportunities for quality higher education opportunities. The paper examines the cost centers associated with campus-based and online education systems and then suggests that disaggregation may prove to be a cost-effective way to reduce tuition payments, while maintaining quality. The paper suggests that discount service models, now available to consumers in many industries may also be attractive in new models of higher education. The paper also briefly looks at the Open Educational Resources University initiative, a pilot, collaborative project attempting to test some of these innovations in a consortium of high quality, accredited public universities. Finally, we note both the disruptive characteristics of this model and commiserate opportunities for innovative providers of higher education."

 

Comment: The above abstract does not do justice to the richness of the paper. Its unique strength is that it looks at universities as providers of a service to students and society at large, notes that the costs of this service continue to rise, and wonders whether there may be a 'low cost, no frills' alternative way of providing this service (think low-cost airlines). First, it pleads to decouple research from teaching, research being a major cost factor. Then it pleads to replace the traditional offline teacher-student interaction by student-content (OERs) or student-student interactions (the Anderson equivalence theorem, which in mathematical terms should rather be termed a conjecture, holds that deep learning can already be sustained if only one of the three interaction types is well cared for). Of course, open universities, such as the Anderson and McGreal's own Athabasca university, have experimented with this long since. The authors conclude that "If both public campuses ['regular' universities] and online systems [open universities] do not adapt and move to exploit these network affordances, then it leaves a tremendous opportunity that can (and will) be filled by private, for profit entrepreneurs". And this is of course where the MOOC phenomenon comes in, which encompasses both experiments of universities (the cMOOC but also edX) and of (venture capitalist supported) entrepreneurs (Coursera, Udacity). Highly recommended! (peter sloep, @pbsloep)
