The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future - Edudemic

The 8 Skills Students Must Have For The Future - Edudemic | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

by Katie Lepi

 

"This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems."

Chris Carter's comment, July 10, 8:36 AM
Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.
Srimayee Dam's comment, July 10, 8:43 AM
Absolutely! Most are unable to do so, unwilling to learn .. Being ignorant is fine, but lack of humility won't ever help

Bard Looks To Advance Experimental Humanities -- Campus Technology

Bard Looks To Advance Experimental Humanities -- Campus Technology | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Drawing upon contemporary digital tools and the rich traditions of humanities inquiry, Experimental Humanities is committed to the study of how technologies mediate our understanding of what it means to be human."

 

The 2-year-old Experimental Humanities is an interdisciplinary concentration involving the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences, with courses ranging from The Science of Creativity (Biology 122) to Digital Animation (Film 203) to Introduction to Computing (Computer Science 117). Courses that are part of the concentreation also focus on such diverse topics as religion, race, celebrity, architecture, video production, music history, Arthurian legends and the intersection of art and technology, among others.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

It seems to becoming evident to even the most die-hard conservatives that the shift to embrace new tools, new connections and new ways of understanding the world is an absolute necessity. 

Plurality, indisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity are shifting from elite, obfuscated academic principles to core undergraduate expectations.

The Learning Revolution Conference

The Learning Revolution Conference | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We are pleased to announce the Learning Revolution Conference, online and free, April 21 - 24, 2014. Our goal is to bring together people who are thinking about learning from our important learning places: the school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional, and home learning worlds.

We want to explore and bridge the conversations about learning that are common to these worlds, including: learning theory, learning practice, learning science, learning space design, and technology for learning. What are we "learning about learning?" The Internet is shifting the boundaries of these worlds and we believe that they will increasingly overlap and integrate. We also believe that conversations across these boundaries are critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.

Engagement: not motivation, nor conformity - The Centre

Engagement: not motivation, nor conformity - The Centre | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

To achieve deeper engagement, different approaches are required. Engagement is often ambiguous, tough to define and therefore problematic to measure/quantify.

 

Engagement is not a synonym for motivation or conformity. It also involves self-discovery, collaborative intent, it is attuned to emotional investment and personalised to embrace passion and interest – a lot of things PISA find difficult to measure. It is also rigorous, but not excessive to the detriment of wellbeing. Engagement in learning connects to real-world contexts, bringing relevance and horizontal connection to learning in other areas.

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Is self-directedness, in fact, innate? Though it doesn’t speak directly of autodidacts, the psychology of motivation and interest suggests that self-directed learners are not only born, but can be made. The research suggests it’s likely that the autodidacts among us did make the wrong turns and poor choices van Merriënboer and Kirschner warn about—made them, but then kept going until they got it right. It’s likely that their keen interest in their subjects carried them past the failures and frustrations that would have deterred less ardent learners.

Sharing good practice in planning education

Sharing good practice in planning education | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This report highlights aspects of good practice in planning education in the UK (with ‘planning’ variously known for instance as spatial planning, urban and regional planning, city and regional planning, and town and country planning), in order to disseminate relevant ideas and innovations and thereby widen their use by ‘planning schools’ (the Royal Town Planning Institute [RTPI] - accredited higher education discipline units teaching planning).  It also provides suggestions for how to improve the sharing of good practice within planning schools. Good practice is seen here simply as that which provides creditable outcomes in terms of learning and teaching effectiveness, as indicated by higher education providers and supported by wider evidence. The report is based on documentary evidence as well as a survey of the opinion of UK planning schools conducted in Spring 2014.  It is intended to be of interest to academics within planning as well as the broader built environment field, but also to practitioners/employers who have an interest in initial (or pre-qualification) education and/or lifelong learning, for instance via their involvement in teaching/learning, mentoring or similar activities.

 

The report was sponsored by the Higher Education Academy, the RTPI and the Conference of Heads of Planning Schools.

The Power of Social Presence for Learning (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

The Power of Social Presence for Learning (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Throughout the past decade, we have researched, studied, and explored a variety of face-to-face, online, and blended learning experiences across different modalities, contexts, and audiences. For students and instructors alike, one concept has remained the key to a successful experience: the power of human connectedness for learning.1

 

Our long-term research with administrators, teachers, and students suggests key strategies to better support faculty and students to develop this connectedness.

 

These strategies are as follows:

 

Understand social presence for learning

Create social connections to build community

Understand a variety of tools and media

Harness reflection and prior experiences

Provide early and continuous feedback

Design with assessment in mind

Encourage change in small steps

Student Evaluations Aren’t Useless. They’re Just Poorly Used.

Student Evaluations Aren’t Useless. They’re Just Poorly Used. | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

If it’s early May, then it must be time to talk about what student evaluations of teaching are worth. In a recent essay in Slate, Rebecca Schuman claims that student evaluations are “useless” in their current form, because they encourage students to punish rigorous teachers with low scores and mean comments (and, all too often, sexist or racist ones). The article has gotten a lot of attention from academics I know, who have shared their own stories of uninformed and upsetting comments.

Theatre lost with lecture theatres | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
LECTURE theatres could be a thing of the past, as students watch lectures at home, on the bus and anywhere else they can get internet access. And their disappearance could take the theatre out of universities, an Adelaide forum heard this week.

 

“A lot of my colleagues don’t like it, but we have to think about it,” Massachusetts Institute of Technology chancellor Eric Grimson told the forum. “What’s our job? Am I an orator or am I an educator? Is it about broadcast, or is it about shared learning?”

What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education.

 

In looking at what these pedagogical changes are and their implications for students, faculty, staff, and institutions, we consider:

Some key developments in online learning and how they impact our understanding of pedagogy;Applications of these developments through highlighting innovations in Ontario colleges and universities from the Pockets of Innovations Series on the Ontario Online Learning Portal for Faculty & Instructors; andSome questions about changes in pedagogy and in student learning.

"The NMC and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) jointly released the NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition at a special session at the ELI Annual Meeting 2014. This eleventh edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report is new this year, providing these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of educational technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership and practice."

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.
