If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy

If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Openness can function as a form of resistance both within and outside the walls of institutions. But open education is no panacea.

Corporate Connectivism - aka Corporate MOOCs

Corporate Connectivism - aka Corporate MOOCs | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

"The recent rise of MOOCs has created a buzz in the world of corporate education. Theories and experiments on how to leverage the systematic within corporate settings, have sprouted all sorts of interesting constructions including "Corporate MOOCs" that function as a sort of pre-selection for recruiters.

A lot can change in a year. Twelve months ago, the traditional universities were doomed, condemned to irrelevance by an onslaught of MOOCs. Not every last one of them was going to die; Sebastian Th...

Toward Peeragogy | DMLcentral

Toward Peeragogy | DMLcentral | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
"I (Howard Rheingold) also discovered, through a co-learner in a Rheingold U class, about "Paragogy" -- the nascent theory of peer to peer pedagogy. The co-learner, Charles Danoff, wrote a paper about it with Joseph Corneli: Paragogy: Synthesizing Individual and Organizational Learning. Searching on the word "paragogy" reveals more resources -- but not so many that they can't be surveyed quickly. The field is just beginning to grow.

I've been invited to deliver the 2011 Regents' Lecture at University of California, Berkeley. I intend to expand the paragogy universe by instigating a peer-created guide to pure peer-to-peer learning. I'm calling it "peeragogy." While "paragogy" is more etymologically correct, "peeragogy" is self-explanatory. In my lecture, I'll explain the evolution of my own pedagogy and reveal some of what I've discovered in the world of online self-organized learning. Then I will invite volunteers to join me in a two week hybrid of face-to-face seminars and online discussion. Can we self-organize our research, discover, summarize, and prioritize what is known through theory and practice, then propose, argue, and share a tentative resource guide for peeragogical groups? In theory, those who use our guide to pursue their own explorations can edit the guide to reflect new learning.

It's not exactly a matter of making my own role of teacher obsolete. If we do this right, I'll learn more about facilitating others to self-organize learning." http://dmlcentral.net/

ghbrett's curator insight, December 17, 2012 2:49 PM

Recently there has been great interest in massive open online courses (MOOCs) as collaborative online learning experiences. This reviewer has been hearing, reading, listening, and talking about collaboration for education, training, and research for a couple decades now. Moving beyond the MOOC concept, Howard's article is a thoughtful piece on his and other's view of peeragogy. It contemplates the where and the how "peeragogy" will be a convergence of collaboration, self-learning, organized learning, MOOCs and other online collaborative resources. There is great potential here for advances in how to use technology. This will happen in a way that improves communication between and among students, teachers, and others.  Plus "peeragogy" will engage people to become participants in these processes rather than silent observers.
