Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills

Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

Dr. Bernard Bull is Assistant Vice President of Academics for Continuing and Distance Education & Associate Professor of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin.


In 1888, John Milton Gregory published The Seven Laws of Teaching, providing instruction on what contributes to being an effective teacher.  While this list is over a hundred years old, most readers today will resonate with this list of laws. This is one of a dozen or so books that I try to read each year.  It is a short read that one can usually finish in a few hours.  As I picked up the book to read again today, I started to think about these laws in terms of self-directed learning, rewriting the laws from a self-directed learning perspective (which, by the way, fits nicely with law #7).  


Below is the original list of “elements” from which Gregory devised his seven laws.  Using these as a starting point, I revised them to create the seven elements of a self-directed learner, adding one additional item that did not seem to have adequate emphasis in Gregory’s original list (although it is embedded within several of them).

This could be helpful for an educator as a checklist when developing a lesson plan to ensure that the way the lesson is set out and implemented builds on a students ability to a become self directed learner.

Librarians, you can think of using a blended model for some of the professional development you offer.  Possibly you begin a workshop with some face to face time.  Then move online to continue your conversation through Edmodo, a blog, a Facebook page, etc.  Later, you can consider meeting again face to face to showcase the learning.

This article and infographic shares 10 evidenced-based research strategies to help teach your students. This is a really good resource for any faculty member to review and consider.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 22, 2:58 PM

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 8:38 PM

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it
One obvious way to influence affect is through visual aesthetics, or the appreciation of an appealing design. Thus, the importance of visual design in learning is gaining in stature and will become increasingly important in years to come.

Via EDTC@UTB
more...
Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 4, 10:23 AM

Much of this applies to online learning, but aesthetics matter in a brick-and-mortar environment, too. Think about the classroom to which you respond, "Oh! This is nice!" as opposed to the classroom that seems to be losing its battle with clutter. Imagine the impact a confused environment has on a student. Great to have stuff on the wall, but after a while it can become just background and no longer have any meaning. Teachers already work hard to create a valuable and purposeful learning space, so asking them to have a plan for managing the resources and other stuff in the classroom might seem like too much. Except the really good ones are already doing it.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

In today’s post we have curated for you a collection of some wonderful iPad games to boost students critical thinking skills and enhance their cognitive abilities. Playing these games, students will be able to engage with a variety of mental and abstract forms of reasoning where they will need to use their strategic and problem solving skills to find answers. While they are so much fun to play they are also a great way to help students approach the world from a critical thinking perspective. Have a look and share with your colleagues.
