MOOCs are no panacea, but they can help improve learning

MOOCs are no panacea, but they can help improve learning | skills services | Scoop.it

"Back in 2012, massive open online courses entered public consciousness accompanied by grand promises of revolution. MOOC proponents, often backed by private venture capital, promised to make higher education more nimble and accessible than ever before. Three years in, at least, it hasn’t worked out that way. Our own assessment is that MOOC mania brought lots of hype, promising technology, some compelling if nascent science and broader recognition of a huge problem that no silver bullet can solve."

Interesting POV, #WDYTT?  I agree with a lot of what is said, the key is how authentic and transparent the leadership is in the process. Many companies today have lost sight of culture or they are afraid to tackle a change. Also point 4 is one that must be done carefully and with full disclosure else it will backfire. Thanks for sharing Rich Bishop.

Pioneering Smart Cities: What Separates Innovators From The Rest? | The Toolbox | skills services | Scoop.it

Since Code for America's inaugural year in 2011, 28 municipal governments have participated in the (CfA) Fellowship Program. Last year, officials from 80+ cities attended the annual CfA summit in San Francisco, when the Code for America civic innovation community gathers in person for three days of collaborating, connecting and learning. 

 

One of the main things that these municipal governments have in common is their willingness to innovate. Many have Chief Innovation Officers, who are charged with translating ideas of government innovation including open data initiatives, which are developed to identify better ways to use technology and spark the kind of citizen engagement that leads to action.  

 

For all of the cities that have embraced the Code for America ideal of open data and transparency there are numerous governments that haven’t. But why? ...

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | skills services | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Don Wilson's curator insight, July 13, 2015 12:52 PM

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great Ways to Deal with Toxic People! 

Alicia Newton's curator insight, July 14, 2015 9:07 AM

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.

Online graduate education appears to be growing in popularity.  In most cases, adults that are mid-career and have families to support, do not have the resources to take a leave from their jobs to go back to graduate school! Thus they have decided that an online program gives them the flexibility to get that degree while working!  This is just one of the incentives of online learning.

Management’s Three Eras: A Brief History - We’ve entered the age of empathy.

Management’s Three Eras: A Brief History - We’ve entered the age of empathy. | skills services | Scoop.it

We’ve entered the age of empathy.

 

Today, we are in the midst of another fundamental rethinking of what organizations are and for what purpose they exist. If organizations existed in the execution era to create scale and in the expertise era to provide advanced services, today many are looking to organizations to create complete and meaningful experiences.

 

I would argue that management has entered

a new era of empathy.

 

This quest for empathy extends to customers, certainly, but also changes the nature of the employment contract, and the value proposition for new employees. We are also grappling with widespread dissatisfaction with the institutions that have been built to date, many of which were designed for the business-as-machine era. They are seen as promoting inequality, pursuing profit at the expense of employees and customers, and being run for the benefit of owners of capital, rather than for a broader set of stakeholders. At this level, too, the challenge to management is to act with greater empathy.

So, let's be proactive and teach empathy and other competencies of emotional intelligence  to MBA students, med students, law school students (what a thought!), teacher candidates, educational leaders,  and other professional in training. They,  in turn, would be using these skills in their interactions with their students, or staffs,  or clients going forward. What an impact that would have, not just corporations/customers but on all of society. That would be a new era indeed!
