Muy Loco Parentis: How ‘Freakouts’ Over Student Privacy Hamper Innovation

Muy Loco Parentis: How ‘Freakouts’ Over Student Privacy Hamper Innovation | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
As a first step, I propose that, whenever educators and college leaders are faced with a decision about student-data privacy, they ask themselves whether there is an opportunity to empower students to make the decision for themselves. Just that. Just start thinking of data about students as data that in some way belongs to the students.

If we can do that, then maybe we will stop freaking out about what we can’t do and focus more of our energy on what the students can do.

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCSs: 20 ways to monetise | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

Nieuwsbericht van de Open Universiteit
verstelle's insight:

"Hoe krijg je studenten zover dat ze proberen de leerstof echt te doorgronden en er kritisch over na gaan denken? Promovendus Gerry Geitz stelde vast dat dit diepe leren kan worden gestimuleerd door studenten duurzame feedback te geven, gericht op het ontwikkelen van vaardigheden om zelf actief feedback te zoeken. Op 15 januari 2016 verdedigt ze bij de Open Universiteit in Heerlen haar proefschrift Sustainable Feedback in Higher Education; Relation Between and Changeability of Self-Efficacy, Goal Orientation, and Learning Behavior.
