2 Great Techniques for the Flipped Classroom | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Inspire more student engagement in a flipped class with these two pedagogy-driven methods.

 

When Julie Schell makes a presentation on innovation in teaching and learning, she likes to share a photograph of college classroom from the 1800s. Compared to a typical classroom today, it's hard to see any substantial differences. The lesson: Educators "need to change how we teach students," she believes.

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them. In these TED talks, students and educators share their …

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

Hey Higher Ed, Why Not Focus On Teaching?

Hey Higher Ed, Why Not Focus On Teaching? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Stanford physics and education professor Carl Wieman won a Nobel Prize for his innovative, break-through work in quantum mechanics. Wieman has since levered the prestige and power of that prize to call attention to the need to transform undergraduate teaching, especially science education. 


Wieman's message, as we've reported here and here, is bold: Too many undergraduate programs fail to focus on teaching effectiveness or even bother to try to measure it. As he sees it, undergraduate Higher Ed still worships at the old false idol called the Big Lecture and doesn't seem to want to ask whether it's working.

Harvard Business School has created one of the most advanced learning environments in the world. Boeing, NASA, and MIT are breaking new ground in lifelong learning. Fitch is leading the charge into an adaptive-powered world of corporate learning. These and a number of other examples represent the evolution of leading organizations to the next generation of training, online learning 3.0. But don’t let the brand names fool you. You don’t have to be a massive organization to create a modern online learning experience. But before we discuss exactly how to do that, let’s take a look how we got here and what online learning 3.0 means.

There’s a big problem with AI: even its creators can’t explain how it works | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

No one really knows how the most advanced algorithms do what they do. That could be a problem.


Last year, a strange self-driving car was released onto the quiet roads of Monmouth County, New Jersey. The experimental vehicle, developed by researchers at the chip maker Nvidia, didn’t look different from other autonomous cars, but it was unlike anything demonstrated by Google, Tesla, or General Motors, and it showed the rising power of artificial intelligence. The car didn’t follow a single instruction provided by an engineer or programmer. Instead, it relied entirely on an algorithm that had taught itself to drive by watching a human do it.
