Innovating Pedagogy: Learning to Learn

Innovating Pedagogy: Learning to Learn | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
The focus of learning is usually on what we need to know, rather than on how to learn. This can lead to frustration because there is just too much to find out. On the other hand, the process of learning is itself a fundamental part of life that helps shape us as human beings and gives purpose to much of what we do. For a teacher, considering the process of learning to learn can help to schedule and balance learning opportunities so that they bring out the longer-lasting benefits associated with being a learner.

In learning to learn, success is not linked to the content a person acquires but to their development as a learner, so that when faced with situations in the future they have the personal capability to find new approaches or fresh information, and they are able to apply these in an effective manner. Educational content remains important, but there is a shift from a concern with delivery and assessment, towards the use of content in helping learners gain new skills. Whereas adult learning (or ‘andragogy’) is concerned with developing new skills, learning to learn (or ‘heutagogy’) also involves discovering how best to acquire those skills – in the classroom, workplace and at home – through a combination of study, discussion, investigation and practice. A teacher may provide resources, but the learner is in command of deciding how to organise them into a coherent course of study.

Connected with learning to learn is the ability to determine your own learning needs and to reflect continuously on the learning process. This involves developing skills of open communication and teamwork, being flexible in approach and creative in new situations, and becoming confident in your ability to take appropriate and effective action in changing circumstances.

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Charles Jennings promotes a 70:20:10 framework for organizational learning, where on-the-job experiential/informal learning and social learning represent the preponderance of each employee’s overall learning. Only 10% is from formal learning activities.


The reason this framework works is that it more or less reflects what’s actually true for employees in the typical workplace. Formal education has its place in preparing people for the workplace. Once those people become employees, they have a job to get done. People aren’t hired to learn, they’re hired to increase productivity or capability. There are productivity expectations and organizational needs to be met.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 20, 7:15 PM

School is a challenging place to learn to be a teacher. We are often isolated and it is difficult to learn informally.

 

The concept is great and it takes effort to put it in place.

The corridor of uncertainty: Paths to openness

The corridor of uncertainty: Paths to openness | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Martin Weller's new book The battle for open provides an excellent overview of the role of openness in higher education today. It charts the development of the main strands of openness (open access, MOOCs, open educational resources and open scholarship) and suggests that although the MOOC boom has made people more aware of the opportunities of open online education it is a false dawn. Interpretations of openness vary greatly and most MOOCs choose to only focus on free access but maintain full copyright on the material. Major investments of venture capital underpin the mainstream MOOC movement and many academics are concerned about the commercialisation of higher education.
