Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 10, 4:58 AM

"This special issue of the eLearning Papers is based on the contributions made to the EMOOCS 2014 conference jointly organized by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and P.A.U. Education. The success of this conference with more than 450 participants demonstrates that MOOCs are at the beginning of a wave and a first step towards opening up education. 

 

Why are MOOCs innovative? They provide alternative ways for students to gain new knowledge according to a given curriculum. MOOCs can also enhance learners’ ability to think creatively to select and adapt a paradigm to solve the problem at hand. These are the main findings of a case study on the Discrete Optimization MOOC on Coursera

 

Many higher education institutions are asking their staff to run high quality MOOCs in a race to gain visibility in an education market that is increasingly abundant with choice. Nevertheless, designing and running a MOOC from scratch is not an easy task and requires a high workload. Professors from Universidad Carlos III in Madrid offer a set of recommendations that will be useful to inexperienced professors. An MIT study also gives key findings on optimizingvideo consumption across courses. 

 

What are the defining characteristics of a MOOC? Can we categorically differentiate a MOOC from other types of online courses? This is one of the central questions of the debate on the future of MOOCs. An UNED study proposes aquality model based on both course structure and certification process. Most of the debate around the future of MOOCs focuses on learners’ attitudes such as attrition or a lack of satisfaction that leads to disengagement or dropout. AStanford study shows how educational interventions targeting such risk factorscan help reduce dropout rates, as long as the dropouts are predicted early and accurately enough. A French researcher shows that learners who interact on theforums and assess peer assignments are more likely to complete the course. Another Stanford study tested different approaches to measure the extent to which online learners experience a sense of community in current implementations of online courses. In a similar context, a German team of researchers studied the collaborative endeavour of planning and implementing a cMOOC

 

One of the key elements of the discussion around MOOCs is their relevance to students in their respective cultural settings. A Leicester University researchercontemplates whether activities, tasks, assignments and/or projects can be applicable to students’ own settings; for example, giving students the freedom to choose the setting of their projects and the people with whom they work. These questions are central to making MOOCs truly accessible to all."

" This series of reports explores new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, in order to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation. 

This second report proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not yet had a profound influence on education.
To produce it, a group of academics at The Open University compiled a
long list of new educational terms, theories, and practices. We then pared these down to ten that have the potential to provoke major shifts in educational practice, particularly in post-school education. Lastly, we drew on published and unpublished writings to compile ten sketches of new pedagogies that might transform education. These are summarised below, starting with four updates from last year’s report, followed by six new entries, in an approximate order of immediacy and timescale to widespread implementation. "

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 24, 6:27 AM

"(... ) designing and running a MOOC from scratch is not an easy task and requires a high workload. This workload should be shared among those generating contents, those fostering discussion in the community around the MOOC, those supporting the recording and subtitling of audiovisual materials, and those advertising the MOOC, among others. Sometimes the teaching staff has to assume all these tasks (and consequently the associated workload) due to the lack of adequate resources in the institution. This is just one example of the many problems that teachers need to be aware of before riding the MOOC wave.

This paper offers a set of recommendations that are expected to be useful for inexperienced teachers that now face the challenge of designing and running a MOOC. Most of these recommendations come from the lessons learned after teaching a nine-week MOOC on educational technologies, called“Digital Education of the Future”, at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid, Spain.
