A New Way to Look at Well-Being

A New Way to Look at Well-Being | L&D Skills | Scoop.it

After six years of measuring and reporting on well-being and health in the U.S., Gallup and Healthways in January 2014 decided to propel the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index to the next level. In short, we’ve given the way we measure well-being a thorough makeover. The updated survey reflects countless hours of research conducted by Gallup and Healthways experts to advance the science of well-being. This research increases the power and scope of the Well-Being Index, which now predicts more key health and business outcomes and provides more actionable insights to leaders and individuals than ever before.

The revamped survey includes 27 brand new questions on everything from perceptions of physical appearance to weekly alcohol consumption; from having an inspiring leader to time spent taking vacations with loved ones. We delve into community pride and financial worry as well.

The pedagogy of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): the UK view | Siân Bayne and Jen Ross, the Higher Education Academy

The pedagogy of the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): the UK view  | Siân Bayne and Jen Ross, the Higher Education Academy | L&D Skills | Scoop.it

The report contains four main sections:

• an overview of the current UK MOOC landscape, illustrating the rich and to date rather neglected history of innovation in open course delivery within the UK during the period preceding our engagement with the large MOOC platforms and the launch of FutureLearn;

• a literature review which addresses key areas of concern within the current published and grey literatures on MOOC pedagogy and associated contextual issues; here we outline what we see as the most important themes currently driving the MOOC pedagogy debate;

• a series of ‘snapshots’ of current UK MOOCs, with an emphasis on looking at the detail of teacher practice, and on approaching the question of MOOC pedagogy from the position of the active teacher-practitioner;

• a conclusion which brings together themes from the literature review with the ‘snapshots’ in order to outline what we consider to be the most pressing issues the UK higher education community should be addressing in relation to MOOC pedagogy.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 9, 2014 12:26 PM

This is a valuable report, particularly since it doesn’t try to cover everything but focuses on pedagogical issues in particular. Also, the fact that the report limits itself to the UK situation may bother some, but the benefit again is depth. And the UK situation is contrasted with the well-known US MOOC platforms, portraying the UK MOOCs as being European in character. This is exemplified by the pan European OpenupEd platform, which exhibits such European values as equity, quality and diversity. A strong point is the literature review and the in-depth discussion of five exemplary MOOCs. Together, they show that the distinction between cMOOCs and xMOOCs is too simple, meanwhile intermediate and different kinds MOOCs have enriched the MOOC landscape.

 

The report contains a wealth of other interesting facts and views. Although it is of course a mere mark on the developmental timeline of MOOCs, anybody with an interest in their pedagogy should read it. It is time well spent.  @pbsloep

Important to remember that MOOCs are designed to give people a "taster" in a particular subject.  They are not intended to replace university degrees.

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual Featuring The Three Versions of Bloom's Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | L&D Skills | Scoop.it

"I have been sharing several visuals on Bloom's Taxonomy over the last couple of years but I  never came across a graphic that captures the essence of the three versions of Bloom's taxonomy as the one below. Actually, Bloom's taxonomy comes only into two versions, the original which was created by a  committee of educators chaired by  Benjamin Bloom  sometime in the 1950s of last century. During the 1990s another group of educators and cognitive psychologists led by Lorin Anderson ( a former student of Bloom) updated the original version to make it convenient with the learning needs of the 21st century."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, September 25, 2013 9:54 AM

Earlier this month, the Open University (UK) published its second instalment of what looks like to become a series of trend reports on "exploring new forms of teaching, learning, assessment" in an effort "to guide educators and policy makers". 

 

Last year the report already included an article on MOOCs and so does this year's issue (pp 9-11). The report establishes that "Current MOOC design offers a good route for professional development […]", something which has been argued for by others in these pages too. It also reports that social learning and peer support may be ways to generate the feedback in MOOCs that is currently largely lacking. It also has a few remarks about retention, to the effect that merely "measuring the fall-off from initial registration is simple but could be misleading".

 

Most interesting perhaps are the trends, after all, this is a trend report. It argues that where MOOCs are going is perhaps less interesting a question than asking in what way MOOCs can meet the growing need for education and learning. The report notes that MOOCs probably never will be able to meet that need for people without confidence or qualifications; that possibly, MOOCs can make the larger public aware of the benefits of education by providing an enjoyable learning experience; that MOOCs already attract many, mostly professionals, and make education providers at large aware of the issue of educational value for money. @pbsloep
