So this seems to be a good point to look not just at 2014, but where we might be going five to ten years from now, and in doing this, I want to include choice or human decision-making as well as technological determinism.

NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Preview

NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Preview | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

There is an overarching sense in the academic world that research is first, while teaching is an obligation that must be performed. Because of this way of thinking, efforts to implement effective pedagogies are lacking. Adjunct professors and students feel the brunt of this challenge, as teaching-only contracts are underrated and underpaid, and learners must accept the outdated teaching styles of the university’s primary researchers.

The posting below looks at some particular techniques for enhancing the flipped classroom model for teaching and learning.  It is by Marilla Svinicki, University of Texas at Austin

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

Like the way the article summarizes --- "The principles are old and valuable, but they haven't been usable because of constraints of time and effort on the parts of both students and teacher. It is the possibility of implementing these key principles that is new, and often enabled by technology's ability to capture their essence."

summary by SmartBrief for the Higher Education Leader

 

"A new university that offers a unique approach to online learning is the result of a partnership between the Minerva Project and California's Keck Graduate Institute. The new Minerva Schools of KGI, opening this fall, requires students to spend their first year living in a San Francisco residence hall, taking their courses online together in "real time." Throughout the following three years, students will be required to move to Minerva residence halls in other cities. "Experiential learning is all about interacting with the world around you," Minerva Project Chairman Ben Nelson said."

A key will be that students need to learn when and how to use technology responsibly. This will require adults who are able to setting excellent examples for students. It will be about learning together rather than teaching and learning as two separate concepts.

 

We will need leadership not management in education.
