Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners

Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Design thinking is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, conceiving original ideas, lots of experimentation, and sometimes building things by hand. The projects teach students how to make a stable product, use tools, think about the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and stay motivated on a long-term problem.…

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

In contrast to traditional higher education, which closes learning off from the world, open learning is transparent and accessible to anyone with internet access. Such openness could do a lot to improve standards at universities whose business models are driven by bums on seats, rather than mastery of a given subject. It might also lift the morale of academia. Academics who are in control of what they teach, and who teach students who seek them out, may regain their professional freedom. Around 7,000 online students recently earned the first certificates awarded by MIT and Harvard through their Edx partnership. That’s more than twice the number of degrees that MIT awarded at this year’s commencement. Another 147,596 observers signed up to marvel at what an MIT course is really like. Substantially greater numbers are expected for the spring course offerings. Their first MIT course, Circuits and Electronics, was tough. University level maths and physics were prerequisites, and the exam would give many nosebleeds.

Library staff development toolkit: Welcome  | Newcastle University Library

Library staff development toolkit: Welcome  | Newcastle University Library | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Welcome to the new staff development toolkit for Newcastle University Library staff.

It aims to help all library staff keep up with news in their field, find out about training and other events, and develop their knowledge and skills via self-paced online activities. It's divided into different categories so you can pick and choose topics of interest to you, and dip into it quickly if you haven't got much time. Much of the content will be updated regularly, so do keep coming back.

Above all, we want it to be your resource, so please submit any links, suggestions and activities, and we'll be happy to consider them. You can do this via your rep on the staff development group (see right) or through online options on the different pages.
