Poiesis and Prolepsis: From liaison, through media performance to performative, interactive sensemaking/world-making

Poiesis and Prolepsis: From liaison, through media performance to performative, interactive sensemaking/world-making | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

 

... an overall transition is sketched, passing from a liaison model of academic librarianship, centred on the collection in the library, to an engagement model of academic practice, in which the professional practitioner is engaged collaboratively, as a member of a team, community or assembly, albeit possibly an agonistic one (Hawhee, 2002), in learning processes conceived as collective, creative sensemaking, i.e. world-making through interaction, a model which is emergent but is not fully realised, and possibly not fully realisable.

Crossing Thresholds and Learning in Libraries | Library Babel Fish @insidehighered

Crossing Thresholds and Learning in Libraries | Library Babel Fish @insidehighered | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

Threshold concepts aren’t new. Originally proposed by Jan Meyer and Ray Land, they have been adopted by faculty in many disciplines. Essentially, they challenge us to identify places where students typically get stuck as they wrestle with a way of knowing that they find unsettling and troublesome. These concepts, when grasped, so profoundly change the way students think that they are transformative and irreversible. Meyers and Land also believe them to be integrative, yet uniquely tied to a particular discipline.

 

This last characteristic has become troublesome for librarians, since many of us don’t believe the transformative concepts that we want students to grasp are specific to our discipline. The experiences we are most interested in transcend disciplinary knowledge and can be applied to any number of post-graduate experiences in which being able to use information and create knowledge matters. (This is that vague “lifelong learning” thing we keep talking about. Also, we have to remember that most of our students major in something they don’t take on as a profession. Delving deep into a subject helps us learn how to think, but in many if not most cases it's not career preparation.) Like writing and critical thinking, we believe information literacy to be preparation for active engagement with the world.

The education system is still not changing at all and is totally based on control and compliance. The failed legacy of NCLB should provide a stark reminder that pummeling students with standardized tests will not achieve the desired outcome.

A New Pedagogy is Emerging and Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor

A New Pedagogy is Emerging and Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy".

 

In looking at what these pedagogical changes are and their implications for students, faculty, staff, and institutions, Contact Nord considers:

 

Some key developments in online learning and how they impact our understanding of pedagogy;Applications of these developments through highlighting innovations in Ontario colleges and universities from the Pockets of Innovations Series on the Ontario Online Learning Portal for Faculty & Instructors; andSome questions about changes in pedagogy and in student learning.

Ruminations on Research on Open Educational Resources | Hewlett Foundation

Ruminations on Research on Open Educational Resources | Hewlett Foundation | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

Open Educational Resources (OER) are "teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. ”MIT’s OpenCourseWare and the Khan Academy materials are well-known examples. OER have different properties from proprietary materials because they are legally free, and, depending on the license selected by the creator, may be copied, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. While we understand their properties, we have only a beginning understanding of how OER are used and whether the properties add value for users when compared to similar proprietary materials. This paper explores nine areas of research on OER from policy to development to its relative effectiveness and whether it stimulates innovation. Although existing research is considered, greater attention is given to the possibilities for new research in these areas.

The potential of community-based sustainability projects for deep learning initiatives

The potential of community-based sustainability projects for deep learning initiatives | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

This paper provides and illustrates a generic framework for deep learning in a Sustainability-based course for higher education instruction. The use of Sustainability Consulting Projects is detailed with potential application to similar programs as part of their Sustainable Education curriculum. Using four disparate institutions of higher learning across the eastern coast of the United States we can complete an exploratory analysis of the framework. This analysis will provide us opportunity to identify and characterize community sustainability projects and their contribution to higher order, integrative and reflective learning. This deep learning framework and model will be helpful to curriculum developers and instructors who wish to introduce these types of projects into their courses and curriculum. These processes and tools may be integrated into current Sustainability Management courses or used as the basis for development of specific courses focused specifically on this topic; e.g., Sustainability Consulting or as a capstone course. Lessons learned and framework design and implementation provide opportunities for further research and development of these courses.

Blended Learning: Does Your LMS Make The Grade? | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

Blended learning. Integrated learning. Hybrid learning. Flipped classroom. Whatever term you prefer — the idea of mixed learning modes appeals to training practitioners. There’s good reason for enthusiasm. Educational experiences that incorporate both synchronous and asynchronous elements can be much more engaging and effective than a one-dimensional approach.

In 2020, people won’t be talking about online learning as such. It will be so integrated with teaching and learning that it will be like talking today about whether we should use classrooms. In fact, we may be talking much more about classrooms or the campus experience in 2020, because of online learning, and how it is changing the whole way that students are learning.
