Thoughts from a MOOC Pioneer — Academic Technology | Gene Roche

Thoughts from a MOOC Pioneer — Academic Technology | Gene Roche | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

"Recently Scott E. Page did a presentation at the University of Wisconsin Center for Educational Innovation where he reviewed his experience teaching his Model Thinking course twice through online course provider Coursera. .. The presentation runs a little more than an hour, ... [it] gives is a very interesting insight into the process of creating a very successful MOOC ... It’s not very often that I sit through an hour-long video, but this one really did grab my attention. It was a well-told story by a thoughtful academic who believes that universities have the capacity to share important ideas with learners who never would have had access to them before."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, January 22, 2013 5:09 PM

I did not sit through the entire video, so you have to take Gene Roche's word for it. However, Gene's blog post gives a very good summary of what it takes to produce a MOOC and what Page's mission was when producing it. There's one sentence I want to share with you here: "As he [Page] emphasizes several times throughout the program, the real mission of the university is having an impact on the way students (and others) think — not in turning a profit." That of course stands in an interesting contrast with the intentions of the MOOC providers. (@pbsloep)

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: Education Data and Learning Analytics

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: Education Data and Learning Analytics | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it
Part 7 of my Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012 series

I chose “data” as one of the top trends of 2011, and the opening line of that article reads “If data was an important trend for 2011, I predict it will be even more so in 2012.” Indeed. There’s a great deal that happened in 2012 that’s a continuation of what we saw last year — enough that I could probably just copy-and-paste from the article I wrote back then:

Teaching & Learning - Authentic Assignments: What Are They? - Magna Publications

Teaching & Learning - Authentic Assignments: What Are They? - Magna Publications | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it
A learning task (be it an assignment or activity) is authentic when it has the following six characteristics:

1. It is realistically contextualized.
2. It requires judgment and innovation.
3. It asks the student to “do” the subject.
4. It replicates key challenging situations in which adults are truly “tested” in the workplace, in civic life, and in personal life.
5. It assesses the student’s ability to efficiently and effectively use a repertoire of knowledge and skills to negotiate a complex and multistage task.
6. It allows appropriate opportunities to rehearse, practice, consult resources, and get feedback on and refine performances and products.
