Why learning professionals – managers, project managers, interactive designers, [ . . .] should not ignore research

Why learning professionals – managers, project managers, interactive designers, [ . . .] should not ignore research | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Why do learning professionals in L and D – managers, project managers, interactive designers, learning experience designers and so on, ignore research? It doesn’t matter if you are implementing opportunities for learning such as nudges, social opportunities, workflow learning, performance support or designing pieces of content or full courses, you will be faced with deciding on whether one learning strategy, tactic or approach is better than another. This can’t be just about taking a horse to water - you must also make sure it drinks. Imagine a health system where all we do is design hospitals and opportunities for people to do healthy things or get advice on how to cure themselves, by people who do not know what the clinical research shows.

Bursting the bubble: why it’s (not) all about the PhD in research support | UKSG

Bursting the bubble: why it’s (not) all about the PhD in research support | UKSG | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it

The changing landscape of scholarly communication has caused something of a chain reaction in academic libraries with increasing numbers setting up dedicated research support departments to offer advice and training to their users. Librarians are excited to see new job opportunities emerging in these departments which on paper seem like an excellent fit for their skills. But in reality are librarians the ones actually taking the roles in these departments or are they being beaten at their own game? Research, 'Where did they come from? The educational background of people working in scholarly communication', suggests that many of those appointed to these new roles within scholarly communication departments come to the library having completed a PhD and that for many their only experience of the library comes as a user rather than a staff member.

Data Information Literacy: Librarians, Data, and the Education of a New Generation of Researchers (Purdue information literacy handbooks) ¬ Selloscope | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it

Given the increasing attention to managing, publishing, and preserving research datasets as scholarly assets, what competencies in working with research data will graduate students in STEM disciplines need to be successful in their fields? And what role can librarians play in helping students attain these competencies? In addressing these questions, this book articulates a new area of opportunity for librarians and other information professionals, developing educational programs that introduce graduate students to the knowledge and skills needed to work with research data. The term “data information literacy” has been adopted with the deliberate intent of tying two emerging roles for librarians together.

Why a Plagiarism-Detection Company Is Now a Billion-Dollar Business

Why a Plagiarism-Detection Company Is Now a Billion-Dollar Business | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Stamping out student plagiarism is big business. How big? $1.735 billion, to be exact. That’s the price that Advance, a privately held media, communications, and technology company, will pay to purchase Turnitin, the 800-pound gorilla of plagiarism-detection services. Although not the largest ed-tech deal ever made, it is, in the words of one analyst, “massive.”

 

So what does the deal, announced on Wednesday, mean for higher education and for education technology? We talked with a few ed-tech observers, as well as senior officers at Turnitin and Advance, to sort it all out. Their takeaways:

7 resources for much-needed information literacy skills

7 resources for much-needed information literacy skills | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it

A Stanford University study drives the point home even further–it determined that students from middle school through college were not able to distinguish between reliable news sources and sponsored content or advertising.

“In every case and at every level, we were taken aback by students’ lack of preparation,” the study’s authors wrote. “Never have we had so much information at our fingertips. Whether this bounty will make us smarter and better informed or more ignorant and narrow-minded will depend on our awareness of this problem and our educational response to it.”

In the midst of fake information and biased websites, though, organizations are working to give students the skills they need to separate factual information from false news:

"It won’t be easy in a landscape still dominated by subscription publishing. One major challenge will be incorporating open access principles into the existing work culture of faculty members and researchers, who have a huge incentive to publish in known subscription journals because of their prestige. Some worry about other unintended consequences."

Neuroscience on what schools should stop doing

Neuroscience on what schools should stop doing | ED 262 Research, Reference & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Adolescent-brain science findings suggest four things that middle and high school teachers should stop doing, writes psychologist Thomas Armstrong. Findings from adolescent-brain research also suggest a number of things that educators should stop doing so much of at the middle school and high school levels. For example:• Classroom teaching that focuses largely on delivering content through lectures and textbooks fails to engage the emotional brain and leaves unchanged those prefrontal regions that are important in metacognition.• Public posting of grades and test scores (a practice which in this data-driven world appears to be increasing) humiliates and shames students in front of their highly valued peers.• Locking students into a set academic college-bound program of courses takes away their ability to make decisions about what most interests them (a process that integrates the limbic system's motivational verve with the prefrontal cortex's decisionmaking capacity).
