Towards a theory or model of productivity for online learning: outcomes, scale and design

‘There is an impressive body of evidence on how teaching methods and curriculum design affect deep, autonomous, and reflective learning. Yet, most faculty are largely ignorant of this scholarship, and instructional practices and curriculum planning are dominated by tradition rather than research evidence [nor - my comment - by educational theory]. As a result, teaching remains largely didactic, assessment of student work is trivial, and curricula are more likely to emphasise content coverage than acquisition of lifelong learning skills. - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2013/09/04/towards-a-theory-or-model-of-productivity-for-online-learning-outcomes-scale-and-design/#sthash.HUPnh3Io.dpuf‘There is an impressive body of evidence on how teaching methods and curriculum design affect deep, autonomous, and reflective learning.

Deborah Arnold's curator insight, September 5, 2013 12:26 AM

The title might not make you think immediately about 21st century skills, but in this article, Tony Bates draws it all together and ask some probing questions about what higher education should be striving to acheive... and how.

ActionsFLE's curator insight, September 5, 2013 1:52 AM

Réflexions sur la façon dont l'enseignement en ligne peut permettre d'atteindre les objectifs d'apprentissage d'une université. Tony Bates s'interroge sur ces 3 questions :

"what teaching methods and/or learning environments will best achieve these outcomes? (And how do we measure/assess this?)can online learning provide an environment that enables such goals and teaching methods to be achieved?if so, can online learning do some or all these things at scale? If so, what can be scaled, and what can’t or shouldn’t be?"
