Don't Call Us Rock Stars - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Don't Call Us Rock Stars - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Opening up education | Scoop.it
Robert Schuwer's insight:

Best quote: "Most worrisome, calling MOOC instructors rock stars implies something about the overwhelming majority of faculty members who don’t, or won’t, or can’t teach a MOOC. When someone speaks about giving students access to the “best” professors, there’s serious baggage attached. The most effective teachers may not be best suited to the MOOC performance model, or they may not work for the research-oriented institutions that have the resources and reputation to be net producers of MOOCs. In fact, they almost certainly don’t."

The traditional college transcript is particularly unsuited for this task. It lists the courses completed and how people performed. But it says little about what someone actually learned or what a person knows.
