Lecture Learning?
Peter Mellow's insight:
I don't totally agree with this. When I hear the evolution argument it reminds me of paleo diet people who say we should eat like hunter/collectors & throw out the stoves/ovens. Social learning 100% yes, but the lecture is not mutually exclusive IMHO.

Putting the pedagogic horse in front of the technology cart. In the ASCILITE TELall Blog, By @michael_sankey

Putting the pedagogic horse in front of the technology cart. In the ASCILITE TELall Blog, By @michael_sankey | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
First, pedagogic strategies (the ones instructional designers talk about) are based on general learning theoretical concepts: Behaviorism, Instructivism, Cognitivism, Constructionism, Constructivism, Socio-constructivism, Situated learning, etc.  There’s often an overlap between these theories that explain how people learn and how one could bring people to learn. But I have seen over the years, we often put this under the one catch-all category, or banner of Constructivism, but it’s much more than that. It’s kind of like saying ‘Pedagogy’ when it’s so much more that that.

Second, design of strategies draws a lot from general pedagogical theory, but also from specialized research, such as understanding Heutagogy, Paragogy, Andragogy, etc. And these help us to understand how we will implement different technologies to meet our learning goals.

Third, educational technology has been a driving force to develop new strategies, with the basic assumption that educational technologies can facilitate pedagogical scenarios, but often we have tried to fit the pedagogy in after the fact, not as the reason for adopting a particular tool. It’s been kind of like putting the cart before the horse (please excuse my photoshop skills).

Reassessing the Value of University Lectures

Reassessing the Value of University Lectures | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Over the past few years the question of whether the lecture is an effective teaching method has been one of the most heatedly debated topics in the field of higher education. While research on the effectiveness of lectures has been carried out since at least the 1960s, the value of the lecture has been increasingly questioned recently for a number of reasons that include waning lecture attendance rates by students, the heightened emphases on active learning and interactive modes of teaching, and technological advances that allow for the instructional component of lectures to be delivered online.

This paper is an excellent read.

How to respond to learning-style believers

How to respond to learning-style believers | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Learning styles have been popularized by well-intentioned people, including possibly your professor of instructional design. However, the claim that we have to adapt our design to accommodate different learning styles has been repeatedly debunked by research.

Then why do people cling to the belief? Let’s look at one reason why learning styles are so appealing and how we can respond to the believers on our team.
