There's a lot of skepticism about whether or not MOOCs are "disrupting" higher education, but can they offer important learning opportunities for the institutions themselves?

"Online courses are prone to cultures of surveillance: our visibility to each other is a pedagogical and ethical issue." We need continuing conversations around the use of digital technologies and the pedagogy surrounding their uses.

Don't miss this key paper on educational assessment! 


There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.


This is the first in Students at the Center’s new Deeper Learning Research Series—David T. Conley, well-known for his influential research on college readiness, argues that the time is ripe for a major shift in educational assessment.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, October 20, 2:23 PM

For starters, long and focused study sessions may seem productive, but chances are you are spending most of your brainpower on trying to maintain your concentration for a long period of time. That doesn’t leave a lot of brain energy for learning.

How to Brainstorm With Introverts

How to Brainstorm With Introverts | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

If you're one of those people who perks up at the thought of a brainstorming session, it can be hard to empathize with those whose hearts sink as soon as they receive the meeting invite.

In particular, your more reserved employees who don't enjoy jostling for the spotlight are less likely to really want to partake. But not to worry, says editor Laura McClure in her recent TED blog post. You can make few simple modifications to your meetings, hopefully making them less painful for your more introverted team members. When everyone is more comfortable, you get to hear more ideas.

""I liked: seeing your faces, posting and reading replies, online sessions, and watching the videos. I have no suggestions as this is the best online class experience I have had to date. The other day I was in my principal's office and we were talking about how to get teachers to make "The Shift"- I told him that everyone should have the opportunity to take this class! "
