Tony Karrer on Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

Tony Karrer:


As always I do this by looking through eLearning Learning and related sites like Communities and Networks Connection.   I looked at Virtual Classroom, Distance Learning, ILT, Teaching Distance Learning.  I also did some quick searches for various kinds of things and added them into eLearning Learning (via delicious).  So together, I’ve collected a bunch of resources pretty quickly.  That said, there’s so much already out there on this – I’m at this point not quite sure what the real question was/is.  Certainly a lot of this is already findable.  I hope this is useful.  But I think the problem at this point might be something else.  Still here are 60 great resources.

by Thijs van Vugt and Preben Sperling
We have previously explored how commercial practices are making their way into higher education. Increasingly, for-profit institutions are actively selling education and it directly influences how other institutions recruit students. Higher education is becoming a business and we must apply commercial practices in our daily operations and interaction with our students… our customers.

Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching

Teaching Practices Inventory Provides Tool to Help You Examine Your Teaching | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

Maryellen Weimer, PhD:


Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there. I suspect it has an even wider application. Most of the items on the inventory are or could be practiced in most disciplines and programs

Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking

Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it
Critical thinking. We all endorse it. We all want our students to do it. And we claim to teach it. But do we? Do we even understand and agree what it means to think critically?

According to Paul and Elder’s (2013a) survey findings, most faculty don’t know what critical thinking is or how to teach it. Unless faculty explicitly and intentionally design their courses to build their students’ critical thinking skills and receive training in how to teach them, their students do not improve their ski
