Teacher Experiences and Academic Identity - The Missing Components of the MOOC Pedagogy

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Research on the role of the teacher in a MOOC - something that has been absent.  Evolving moocs mean that the practice of teaching needs to evolve with them.  From the folks at Edinburgh University who have a vast background and experience in MOOCs and online education.

JISC e-Learning Models Desk Study

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Totally relate this to MOOCs.  I have been reviewing old papers as I think we often try and recreate something new out of something that we have done before.  If we just practised reflective learning ourselves I think we would dig out some great ideas and we just need to update them (apply what we know today).

Essay on what professors can learn from MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Written by Ng for IHE - I would prefer to see some evidence of change, rather than anecdotes - but they could be on the way.


This piece is interesting as well in response to Ng http://allmoocs.wordpress.com/2013/01/25/a-critical-review-of-andrew-ngs-learning-from-moocs/  I don't agree entirely but its worth referring to for my research

Fiona Harvey's insight:

I like the idea of this, but I still think that there should be something else around connecting with others.  Just having a discussion about something is very difficult with inspiration (and I can talk on just about anything!)  I don't know what this needs and I love the idea.  Maybe when I have 'time' I will do one of these for longer, I just dipped my toe in to see what it was like, but its interesting none the less.

Why Vygotsky?

Fiona Harvey's insight:

I think this is important - looking at the theories of education and found a different paper expounding Vygotskys Social Learning Theory.  There are more correlations here to how effective Group learning is.  Background to the theory. 

'Pedagogy of Collaboration' = cMOOC pedagogy?
