Designing ‘attention points’ in academic work

Designing ‘attention points’ in academic work | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it
Four principles for improving how you display tables, graphs, charts and diagrams 
Professor Jill Jameson's insight:
This is a helpful post for a range of academic writing tasks, e.g. for writing up and disseminating PhD results, designing a conference poster, etc. The point is well-made that academic writing and dissemination is frequently unnecessarily cluttered with excessive levels of detail, when some well-designed 'attention points' would enable readers to access key ideas quickly.

Qualia and other wildlife: negative capability: contradiction, paradox and non-duality

Qualia and other wildlife: negative capability: contradiction, paradox and non-duality | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

A friend has asked me if I know more about Keats' notion of negative capability, as mentioned in my blog of the other day. Well, no, I don't know more about what he personally had to say about it.

 

But the concept of staying with an unclear situation, sitting at the fulcrum, stillpoint, of the creative tension between two apparent contradictions without forcing a decision, is a familiar one to me. I think about it a great deal, in fact, as it seems to me that our habitual ways of dividing the world into polar opposites is responsible for a great deal of the suffering in the world, our own and others'. This is a book-length thesis – and indeed there are many books out there on this subject in the fields of psychology, spirituality and philosophy. I can't possibly do justice to this in a brief(ish) post, but what lies behind this concept seems so crucial for the evolution of consciousness of our species that I can't let it pass without a few words.

Professor Jill Jameson's insight:

Interesting post relating to Keats's concept of negative capability, a particularly necessary quality for leadership in higher education.

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, March 2, 9:28 AM

Another MOOC report, this time from University of London. Section 6 specially interesting for MOOC making. 

luiy's curator insight, April 15, 3:21 PM

Project Planning a MOOC

 

The course teams involved with our MOOCs included experienced academics with familiarity in developing materials on a learning platform. Nonetheless, for each of them it was their first experience of MOOCs, as it was for the project planning team.

 

 

Delivering a MOOC

 

A range of styles and learning methods were adopted by the four MOOCs, appropriate to the subject matter covered. A MOOC structure of six weeks and 5-10 student effort hours per week of study appeared to be just right for the majority of students (55%). Some considerations for future delivery include:

 

< Well designed announcements at the beginning and end of each week that articulate with the topic coverage, learning activities and assessment methods can be effective at maintaining student interest and motivation.


< Management of forum threads and posts is a critical factor in dealing with massive scale short courses to ensure the majority of students are not affected negatively by the behaviour of a small number of the community, while preserving the openness of the discussion areas.

 

< The Coursera platform tools are significant and comprehensive in terms of plotting overall student activity, allowing evaluation of assessment data, as well as usage statistics on video resources and other learning activities; however, further refinement of these tools to enable both students and teaching staff to understand their progression at an individual level is necessary (and underway).
