Do online courses spell the end for the traditional university? | The Observer | Carole Cadwalladr | Lifelong and Life-Wide Learning | Scoop.it

"Publishing, music, shopping, journalism – all revolutionised by the internet. Next in line? Education. Now US academics are offering world-class tuition – free – to anyone who can log on, anywhere in the world, is this the end of campus life?"

 

Comment: A long but rich article about xMOOCs. Sebastian Thrun features large in the historical overview, which goes from Udacity to Coursera and edX. It touches upon the Open University and why they are not a viable alternative to MOOCs for many students (with £5000 per year too expensive), indeed why higher education in England with its fees of £9000 a year is giving the competition a field day. For education has become a market, Carole argues, and competition there is. How the MOOC providers would do the accreditation is of course an issue, but the people whom she talked to either are doing MOOCs for the fun of it, personal development etc, or are students who complain about the low quality of what their university offers to them and use the MOOC course as a complement. She concludes saying that  "These websites [of MOOCs] are barely months old. They're still figuring out the basics. Universities aren't going anywhere just yet. But who knows what they'll look like in 10 years' time? A decade ago, I thought newspapers would be here for ever. That nothing could replace a book."  (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Ways to strengthen the motivation for workplace learning according on the self-determination-theory

Due to the process of globalisation it becomes more and more essential for companies of all branches to be adaptive toward the requirements of the markets. A well-known example for this circumstance is the trade rivalry between the famous companies Apple and Microsoft in order to get the predominance at the global operating-system-market. Therefore are employees needed, who are competent and motivated to learn on their workplaces with the aim to improve the competitiveness of their companies. Furthermore the rapid technical progress is a major part of current workplaces, which underline the exigency of workplace learning. 

 

The results of a great amount of researches imply the value of the self determination theory for workplace learning. That is the reason why techniques like motivational interviewing and the screening instrument for learning conditions (SILC) are based on this approach. . . .

Taking care of your own continuing professional development (CPD)

This talk looks at how business English teachers can access online networks and resources to ensure that they stay in touch with their profession and continue to grow as professionals. This area is of particular importance for BE teachers who often work in an environment that isolates them from other language teaching professionals. Awareness of online resources, digital networking practices and information literacies can help them to ensure that they continue to develop whilst building a personal profile within the global online community. You can watch the Adobe Connect version and follow the online chat and links at: http://connectpro10829081.adobeconnect.com/p5hh93loa86/

Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning.

In this article, the authors present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey.
