Discussing design models for hybrid/blended learning and the impact on the campus

Discussing design models for hybrid/blended learning and the impact on the campus | University Planning | Scoop.it

The comments section has many good faculty POVs.:

 

So we did a little brainstorming. Here are some of things that were suggested in the very short time available (10 minutes or so):

Online

foundational knowledge (facts, principles, concepts, ideas, vocabulary, etc.)certain kinds of skills such as knowledge management, knowledge navigation, independent learning, creative writingsome elements of clinical practice (e.g. correct procedures, video demonstrations of equipment being used, patient symptoms)

Face-to-face

public speaking and facilitation skillsconsensus-buildingdecision-makingproblem solvingbuilding a closer relationship with/’humanising’ the instructorbody language cues from the instructor about what is really important to him/her in the coursepractical lab skills/operating equipment

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning

Don't Let Strategy Become Planning | University Planning | Scoop.it

"But how does a strategic plan of this sort differ from a budget? Many people with whom I work find it hard to distinguish between the two and wonder why a company needs to have both. And I think they are right to wonder. The vast majority of strategic plans that I have seen over 30 years of working in the strategy realm are simply budgets with lots of explanatory words attached. This may be the case because the finance function is deeply involved in the strategy process in most organizations. But it is also the cause of the deep antipathy I see, especially amongst line executives, toward strategic planning. I know very few who look forward with joy to the commencement of the next strategic planning cycle."

Really? "To make strategy more interesting — and different from a budget — we need to break free of this obsession with planning."

Anya Kamenetz writes about these pioneering programs in Education Life, The Times’s quarterly magazine about higher education. It’s part of a package of articles that highlight online experiments, including UniversityNowMinerva and University of the People – intended to make college more affordable as well as more convenient by tapping into web-based technology.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, November 12, 2013 12:41 PM

Disruptive new models have parents as well as prospective students looking and reconsidering.   More bloggers are writing  about the problems with large education debt (bankrupcy exempt.)  Economic cycles threaten to turn higher education into high priced vocational schools.

Mathematicians categorize fractals by their density (D) on a scale of 1 to 2, 1 being a flat line and 2 being complete fill; environmentally, the open ocean approximates D=1, while a thick jungle approaches D=2. Experiments by physicist Richard Taylor and others repeatedly reveal that a large majority of people (94 percent in Taylor’s experiments) prefer a density around 1.3 or 1.4, which matches acacia- and savanna-like images, including the abstract diagrams from the Wise experiment. The theory is that a preference for these kinds of fractal images is genetically imprinted at a density we associate with the optimal environment for survival--too sparse means not enough sustenance, and too dense means not enough opportunity for surveillance. Using eye-tracking techniques, Taylor also has shown that we tend to scan our surroundings with a fractal pattern approximating the preferred density, even when that pattern doesn’t exist in the visual field. We seek out the desired imagery everywhere we look.
