Reflecting on the Original Big Idea for MOOCs

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, March 21, 9:45 PM
"The real innovation of the MOOC era is not the unbundling of academic degrees that first captured massive attention, but rather the re-bundling that results from serious academic R&D - the creation of new communities and credentials for all levels. In announcing Michigan’s new degrees this morning at the Coursera Partners Conference, Coursera CEO Jeff Maggioncalda contextualized these latest innovations as evidence that, “the future of work and the future of learning are converging.”"

Why Academics Should Stop Writing and Speaking in Jargon

Why Academics Should Stop Writing and Speaking in Jargon | Engineering education and Online learning | Scoop.it

Academics seem to write exclusively for themselves. Their writing includes selective phrases and other oddities that prevent them from being understood rather than increasing their communication effectiveness. In short, academics are their own worst enemies.

Teachers are the most important school-related factor influencing student learning. Teachers can help level the playing field and provide opportunities for success to all their students. They can inspire students to innovate; to think and reflect and to work in collaboration with others.
