A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Contact North | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.”

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.

So what’s the prognosis for MOOCs? Ingenious and socially commendable, but sub-optimal and unsustainable? Or the beginnings of a disruptive new model that will alter how higher education institutions ultimately deliver education options and determine which institutions thrive or survive?

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 24, 2013 8:52 AM

Designing meaningful and engaging lessons (for any form of delivery, including eLearning) is a task that every good instructional designer seeks to master. Teaching lower-school students is a privilege that quickly makes you realize that the approach you take when conveying an idea is just as important as the idea itself. An approach that I have found most successful is threefold:

  • Be clear and concise
  • Use visuals
  • Excite the imagination.

In terms of most HE institutions, DI would really only enable them catch up with 30 years of using technology to do what they have always done, and resisting any significant changes.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 28, 2013 8:04 AM

The 'I' in the above is Mark Smithers. Although you really miss the voice that goes with the slides, the slides themselves already provide a lot of food for thought. There's one comment I would like to add to what Anne already said.

I am starting the feel uneasy about the term 'disruptive innovation'. As a descriptive term of past events it probably makes good sense, but as a label for current events, such as the mushrooming of MOOCs, it almost takes on a prescriptive guise. Its use almost implies that universities should stop thinking about their future, there is no point doing so as there is none.  MOOCs being a disruptive innovation are bound to take over from them. To be sure, Mark doesn't say so, indeed, he discusses reactions universities should have. However, pictures like the one of a huge, grounded ship easily evoke an image of inability timely to change course. Before you know it, such descriptions become self-fulilling prophecies (something which of course some people are only too keen to emphasise, as is evidenced by another one of this week's scoops of mine: http://sco.lt/89vrjF) (@pbsloep)

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, March 28, 2013 11:24 AM

H817 students. A lot of points made that are relevant to what we are doing at the moment. I share the same sentiments as Anne Whaits and feel that we'll be seeing more diversity in the future, or as Smither's terms it 'Multiversity'.

 

I heard an interesting comment from one of my advanced English language students today in response to the topic, 'Young people have too many opportunities nowadays'. Her reply was, 'No that's not true, we have choices. We have more choices now that suit different learners. I think it's great.'

 

Perhaps we need to listen more intensely to the student voice?

Shit or get off the pot: Why are we still talking about the seismic impacts technology will have on higher education? | Peter Bryant | Initiate! What is learning design? | Scoop.it

It is time for us to shit or get off the pot.  In my opinion we cannot afford to continue this cyclical and eventually damaging ‘will they, won’t they?’ dance of unresolved technological tension.  There has to be a critical, empirical and research informed evaluation of our pedagogical practices.  The systems by which we enhance our programmes and courses need to be agile and responsive.  And this has to happen quickly and publicly.

Keith Wayne Brown's curator insight, March 12, 2013 6:57 AM

With the exception of the drop-ins--because universities control access to content pretty well--these numbers mirror many of the patterns I see with standard education models in large classrooms. Now, in class settings where there is less than 15 students, the lurker becomes more visible and a professor can tease the passive students into being more active.

The traditional model of the lecture and learning cycle has long been to deliver the lecture during class and to send students home to do homework and perhaps engage in a discussion or two afterwards. The flipped classroom flips this model on its head: through lecture capture software, lectures can be captured on video for students to watch home, freeing up class time for hands-on learning activities and discussion.

Paulo Moekotte's comment, March 12, 2013 2:24 PM
Dear Ana,

I guess you've already put considerable time in your categorization of student behaviour patterns in MOOCs. But I would still like to point you to a framework that might be appropriate and fit your questions and research data.

The 'Reader-to-Leader' framework is developed by Jennifer Preece and Ben Shneiderman (The Reader-to-Leader Framework: Motivating Technology-Mediated Social Participation).
As the authors indicate. it might be used in several disciplines and domains. So education (especially tailored from a social-constructivist perspective) could also benefit from the insights this framework can support.
Will Stewart's curator insight, March 14, 2013 7:12 AM

These kinds of studies are important as the design and delivery of MOOCs evolve.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 12, 2013 10:24 AM

This noble justification of academia is now more than theoretical, it is actually possible – but not without a struggle. The commercialization of learning that has overtaken higher education over the past 50 years has embraced MOOCs as the next big growth opportunity for venture capital. In this sense, MOOCs have become the last stand for the defense of academic freedom because ownership of knowledge and information is the key to controlling the political power and social beliefs and values determining the distribution of wealth in the 21st Century.


Unfortunately, academics are typically weak warriors, and our colleges and universities are deeply compromised fortresses for combating power and belief in the service of greed.
