Poiesis and Prolepsis: Giving out to receive in return: Social media for researchers

Poiesis and Prolepsis: Giving out to receive in return: Social media for researchers | Digital Agency and Academic Practices | Scoop.it

Some recent approaches to research suggest that, in the process of research itself, one should give in order to receive in return. In an educational context, this might almost be a taken-for-granted, that without giving there would be no receiving in return.

Collecting data about educational technology use in *all* countries in the world

Collecting data about educational technology use in *all* countries in the world | Digital Agency and Academic Practices | Scoop.it

What is the impact of technology use on education, and on learning? This simple question is rather difficult to answer, for a number of reasons. The quick answer -- that 'it depends on how you are using it, and to what end' -- may be unsatisfying to many, but is nevertheless accurate.

Forthcoming Event - Book Now! Re-Envisionings: Social Media, Pedagogy and Curation | Digital Agency and Academic Practices | Scoop.it

Re-Envisionings: Social Media, Pedagogy and Curation A one-day event organised by the Visual Resources Committee of ARLIS BUFVC, 77 Wells Street, London W1T 3QJ  11 June 2015, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm 9...

Allan Parsons's insight:

Book your place on this one-day workshop if you are interested in exploring the importance of ‘the visual’, not just in art, design and media practices, but in thinking and acting more generally; the potential of digital, visual media to transform pedagogic practices in higher education; and the potential of digital, visual media to transform curatorial practices in museums and galleries.

 

The aim of the event is to bring curation and pedagogy, and the university, the museum, the library, the gallery and the archive, into closer practical relationship, while exploring the potential, and the limitations, of visual, social media as part of these transformational relationships.

Higher Education 2.0 and the Next Few Hundred Years; or, How to Create a New Higher Education Ecosystem | Digital Agency and Academic Practices | Scoop.it
EDUCAUSE Review Online

 

Three important developments stand to dramatically change the way we think about degree programs and pathways:

The rapid adoption of competency-based education (CBE) programs, often using industry and employer authority for guiding the creation of the competencies and thus programsAn eventual move to suborganizational accreditation, with Title IV funds available for credits, courses, and microcredentials offered by new providers in new delivery models, part of the accelerating trend toward "unbundling" higher educationIncreasing recognition that postsecondary education will no longer be contained to the existing and traditional degree levels but will instead be consumed at various levels of granularity—less than full degree programs and continuing throughout lives and careers

University funding reform ‘will cause brain drain’ to London

University funding reform ‘will cause brain drain’ to London | Digital Agency and Academic Practices | Scoop.it
Unfashionable areas of study face funding cuts under new proposals

 

 

Under the “dual support” system, universities are given cash to spend as they wish, known as quality-related (QR) funding. At the same time the research councils fund major research projects undertaken according to national strategic goals.

 

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is looking at concentrating all funding in the hands of the research councils, in a move that would probably see an end to research funding in certain areas, with the winners being the major science and technology research centres, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College and King’s College London, and the losers being the new universities.
