La enseñanza universitaria en España giraba en torno a las materias que el estudiante debía cursar para obtener un título académico. Gracias al Proceso de Bolonia se ha pretendido que gire en torno al estudiante, que al fin y al cabo es el
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Poropat nos comenta dos estudios recientes que discuten cómo evalúan los alumnos su propio aprendizaje. Ambos llegan a la misma conclusión: Los estudiantes universitarios evalúan mejor a los profesores con los que aprenden menos; su aprendizaje se mide con su rendimiento posterior en exámenes de la materia es peor. Más aún, los estudiantes evalúan mejor a los profesores con los que obtienen mejores notas; en cierto sentido, estos profesores compran la opinión de sus estudiantes.

Guide to Quality in Post-Traditional Online Higher Education

Alfredo Corell's insight:

The new Guide aims to help individuals and institutions that are adopting post-traditional approaches by outlining key issues to consider when assuring the quality of their offerings. The guide is structured in the form of ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ as a simple way of presenting the central arguments and is aimed at university decision-makers, faculty and academic staff, government policy-makers, funding bodies, and researchers.

12 razones por las que la Educación no se adapta a los tiempos

12 razones por las que la Educación no se adapta a los tiempos | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

La regulación e institucionalización que permitió algún día universalizar la educación de calidad en los diferentes países se ha convertido en el principal obstáculo para innovar y adaptar la educación a las nueva realidad social, laboral y tecnológica.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

 Si prácticamente todo el mundo está de acuerdo en que la educación está obsoleta y completamente desadaptada de las necesidades sociales y laborales actuales, ¿por qué no se produce una verdadera revolución educativa?

   ¿Por qué cada día hay más separación entre lo que las personas deberían aprender en escuelas y universidades, y lo que realmente aprenden?

¿Por qué cada día hay más separación entre lo que las personas deberían aprender en escuelas y universidades, y lo que realmente aprenden?

RUEPEP's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:56 AM

"Aspectos informales como la curiosidad, la motivación  o la pasión no tienen absolutamente ningún papel en la educación formal. Sin curiosidad, motivación o pasión no va a haber nunca innovación, cambio, nueva mentalidad, TICs o revolución educativa."


Ésta es sin duda una de las razones de más peso. La falta de motivación e interés (por parte de estudiantes pero también de docentes, en muchos casos), es causa del fracaso del sistema educativo actual, pero a su vez consecuencia, lo que genera un círculo vicioso.


La innovación y apertura hacia una educación más participativa e inclusiva debe realizarse desde los niveles de educación más básica. Las nuevas tecnologías suponen un medio fundamental para llevar a cabo esta (r)evolución educativa, pero no van a solucionar todos los problemas por sí solas. Es necesario que los docentes tengan la formación necesaria para introducir cambios e innovaciones, pero sobre todo es imprescindible que transmitan a los estudiantes su pasión por enseñar, pero también por no dejar nunca de aprender.

This winter, when Mary Liu sits down to take the final exam in an online course on epidemiology and biostatistics, she’ll do so from the comfort of her own home. She’ll have 24 hours to complete the test, which accounts for 60% of the final grade in the online course, but no one will be peering over her shoulder to make sure she completes the exam on her own without the aid of any of her 50,000 classmates or Wikipedia.

Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning

Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Book review by Shattuck  - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning: Models, policies and research.

Review published in: The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

 

The book that Jung and Latchem pulled together provides much-needed discussion on just what quality assurance in distance education is. It also provides conceptual organizational models and practical strategies for continually working towards quality improvement and for transparently tracking and documenting outcomes. Most importantly, this book finally brings quality assurance from being a lofty ideal into the realm of practical discussion.

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The rules of e-Learning: Don’t keep your learners in the dark

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The rules of e-Learning: Don’t keep your learners in the dark | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Alfredo Corell's insight:

There is a very great temptation to keeping things away from the learner, ‘until they are ready for it’.  As online teachers it is our job to break the learning up into units that the learner can address in their own time and so we naturally analyse the learning in terms of its difficulty, hoping to lead the learner along the path of increasing knowledge.

New Algorithm Assesses the Quality of Wikipedia Articles

New Algorithm Assesses the Quality of Wikipedia Articles | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
An algorithm that assesses the quality of Wikipedia articles could reassure visitors and help focus editors on entries that need improving.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Xiangju Qin and Pádraig Cunningham at University College Dublin in Ireland. These guys have developed an algorithm that assesses the quality of Wikipedia pages based on the authoritativeness of the editors involved and the longevity of the edits they have made.

“The hypothesis is that pages with significant contributions from authoritative contributors are likely to be high-quality pages,” they say. Given this information, visitors to Wikipedia should be able to judge the quality of any article much more accurately.

ACE to Assess Potential of MOOCs, Evaluate Courses for Credit-Worthiness

ACE to Assess Potential of MOOCs, Evaluate Courses for Credit-Worthiness | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

American Council on Education (ACE) announced a wide-ranging research and evaluation effort that will examine the academic potential of massive open online courses (MOOCs).

Working with institutional leaders, organizations like Coursera and the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), and supported by generous funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ACE will leverage its position as the major coordinating body for all the nation's higher education institutions to identify and answer questions about the disruptive potential of this new and innovative approach to higher education.
