The revolution in Higher Education and the needs of the New Academic

The revolution in Higher Education and the needs of the New Academic | Technology | Scoop.it

The traditional rhythm of teaching a course face-to-face dramatically changes when a course goes online. To this point, we have tried to largely replicate the face-to-face experience online. As eLearning matures, we have begun to see more innovative and divergent designs for courses that depart from the traditional content dispensation models we've used in the past. A possibility for a true shift in teaching identity is open to the faculty member who deeply engages in the creation of new ways to teach online. The way I feel about my online teaching is captured in two words: "exciting" and "relentless." I am excited to be teaching something I know so well in new and different ways, forging new pathways and reaching new audiences. I love the excitement of helping teachers who are in their classrooms on a daily basis. So much of the traditional university teaching experience tends to circle around residential students who are removed from their work contexts and come to the university for a sabbatical learning experience. Even as they take a course they are currently practicing, learners tend to see their face-to-face experience as a retreat from their busy non-stop workday. By integrating the experience into convenient anytime, anywhere learning, I find learners are more in the moment of their context than when they come to campus. This is exciting to me; I feel the experience of impacting real world settings and real practice so much more directly.

Essentials for inquiry learning to be effective.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, June 18, 2014 1:46 AM

Number 1. Get them to ask their own question!  This is so important and quite a difficult thing to get students to do. They are so used to answering questions given by the teacher that when it comes to creating their own questions they don't know how. A really important starting point.

The stages of Education Technology

The stages of Education Technology | Technology | Scoop.it

Mobile applications–or apps–have served an important role in the evolution of what’s possible in a classroom. Libraries and textbooks and teachers have been the traditional portals to information in education. This had many benefits, including a very even, aligned, and uniform learning experience for students.

 

Like apps, textbooks are solutions to the challenge of organizing content for study. They package curriculum, and allow the teacher to focus on controlling the pace and navigation of the curriculum. But books, while credible and convenient, are also closed, dated, non-fluid, generalized, unengaging, and depend heavily on the reading level of the user.


This is where apps came in. They fractured content into countless interesting fibers, so that “Math” became twenty-four expertly-curated YouTube channels, a gamified and flexible site in the form of the Khan Academy, a twitter account that aggregates interesting math problems and crowdsources solving them, and a smaller handful of adaptive apps that adjust themselves on-the-fly to student performance.
