Systemic Changes in Higher Education | in education

Systemic Changes in Higher Education | in education | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A very interesting paper written by George Siemens and Kathleen Matheos for In Education - exploring our connective educational landscape.

"A power shift is occurring in higher education, driven by two trends: (a) the increased freedom of learners to access, create, and re-create content; and (b) the opportunity for learners to interact with each other outside of a mediating agent. Information access and dialogue, previously under control of the educator, can now be readily fulfilled by learners.

Love the quick diagnostic this post offer on extent to which Blended Learning/e-Learning is applied...

 "As an learner here are some quick diagnostics I use to gauge a person’s interest in e-learning.

*If a teacher can’t point to a digital presence that either they or their students created, then they are not interested e-learning.

*If a teacher can’t name a blog that they follow, then they are not interested in e-learning.

*If a teacher can’t name an app they’ve recently implemented into their teaching, then they are not interested in e-learning."

But this is only one feature of the coming digital campus. Student-to-student applications will allow classes to connect socially, discuss lessons, rate professors, exchange and even sell class notes.

Blended Learning Has a Long Way to Go | HESA

Blended Learning Has a Long Way to Go | HESA | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Contrary to the rantings of technophiles, students don’t behave much like “digital natives.” They still far prefer to do their readings on paper rather than on a screen, for instance. They really don’t seem to have a lot of time for dynamic e-learning resources like interactive discussion forums, and they don’t think there is any comparison between courses you take in person and those you watch even occasionally on a screen – the former wins hands down.The fact is, Canadian students aren’t impressed by the e-learning resources on offer in Canadian universities.....But possibly we just aren’t getting the implementation right. It might just be that the technology, and the way in which we integrate it with the curriculum, just isn’t that good."
