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.

Organizational Atmospheres: Foam, Affect and Architecture by Christian Borch

Organizational Atmospheres: Foam, Affect and Architecture by Christian Borch | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

Key concepts: Relationality; Affective relationships; Atmospheres; Spatial practices.



This article discusses the contribution of Peter Sloterdijk’s theory of spheres to organization theory. Specifically, I apply Sloterdijk’s sphereological notion of foam to obtain a new perspective on organizations. It is argued that a foam-theoretical approach provides a simultaneous focus on organizational dynamics of affective imitation, on the spatial and architectural dimensions of organizations and, finally, on the politics of organizational atmospheres. The article opens with a brief introduction to Sloterdijk’s sphere theory and then proceeds by applying his notion of foam to organizations. This includes a comparison between the foam-theoretical angle and existing perspectives in organization theory. Next I discuss Sloterdijk’s analyses of the spatiality of foam. In the final part of the article, I argue for taking seriously the politics and management of organizational atmospheres.

Blended Learning: Does Your LMS Make The Grade?

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.

Control Will Be the Demise of Education

Control Will Be the Demise of Education | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

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.

Why We Remember the Beatles and Forget So Much Else - The New Yorker

Why We Remember the Beatles and Forget So Much Else - The New Yorker | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

The most persistent mistake that historians and politicians have made in analyzing the modern world is to imagine, again and again—a fallacy shared by liberals and Marxists alike—that people will pursue their own economic interests in preference to their ideological fixations. They don’t. They never will. Nationalist ideology has been a much stronger force in the modern world than class interest.

2020 Vision: Outlook for online learning in 2014 and way beyond | The Learning Experience | Scoop.it

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.
