Welcome to Week 2: Net Pedagogy

Our topic for week 2 of CFHE12 is net pedagogy. This week we'll consider the ways that the teaching/learning relationship is changing as a result of the internet. We have a busy week planned with guest presenters. More information can be found here: https://edfuture.desire2learn.com/d2l/lms/content/home.d2l?ou=6609 

We've started to add views from different parts of the world: https://edfuture.desire2learn.com/d2l/lms/content/home.d2l?ou=6609 . These include reflections from educators in different parts of the world. We'll add several perspectives each week...

Finally, we would appreciate your thoughts on how we can improve CFHE12. Comments can be added to this gdoc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dUZBKYXhSCRW8kA55zsUzJGN42yh-ZJ6lkdJtJ-HnAM/edit

Confluence of Business, Government and Education in Higher Ed
grandprospirator, grandprospirator
  Created a vlog in response to some of the reading in the first week of #CFHE12 on some of the change pressures to higher education including: Trends, Disruptive Forces, Opportunities. One of the keys that I see is a confluence between the spheres of business, government and education. Would love any comments or feedback [...] [Link] Fri, 12 Oct 2012 07:24:08 +0000 [Comment]

As leituras da semana 1 do CFHE12 , que enfrento por curiosidade, são mobilizantes e deixo aqui uma síntese do que para mim foi interessante.As mudanças de cenário que acontecem, através da tecnologia, sem dúvida influenciam o ensino superior.Pelo visto há uma diminuição das verbas destinadas às Universidades, ao lado do empobrecimento dos professores.Os alunos em formação ainda são formatados, disciplinados a uma obediência, ...

Faço parte de um curso universitário bimodal (misto, híbrido), com 01 encontro semanal programado para os alunos.Estes cursos perante as leituras desta semana 2 são apresentados como estratégias poderosas e tem como um fator primordial a possibilidade de oferecer avaliação contínua para os alunos e tutores.Mas ao refletir, sobre o meu curso, creio que as causas apontam alguns itens diferenciados, que foram passíveis de enfrentamento, como o despreparo dos alunos perante a tecnologia, ao...

Denominators Matter
Marc Lentini, Malapert on scriptogr.am
In other parts of my life, I'm a big fan of Lenore Skenazy's Free-Range Kids and Bruce Schneier's take on security. Skenazy writes about risks to kids, vs. perceived risks to kids. Schneier writes in a similar vein about terrorism. For instance, we drive kids to school to protect them from being killed by strangers, but statistics show about 50 kids are killed by strangers annually, and 1400 are killed as car passengers. (And there are 70 million kids in the US. Someone else can d... [Link] Fri, 12 Oct 2012 09:45:00 -0400 [Comment]

First, examine your assumptions
Marc Lentini, Malapert on scriptogr.am
I was trying to explain CFHE12 to someone the other day, and they posed the challenge: "Is higher ed really failing?" And it took me a while to respond. Higher education institutions continue to do many great things. We continue to turn out graduates, many of whom turn out to be highly successful at what they set out to do. Universities continue to create fascinating basic research, advanced technologies, new knowledge in many fields. And yes, the news loves a good exception: a corrupt administr...

Unbundling the University Experience
olavur, Putting Energy Into Learning
Universities are seeing their costs increasing and their income stable or decreasing, as public funding of higher education is put under pressure, and the ability of students to pay for their education is being reduced. Paradoxically, one of the main reasons for this financial pressure is the increased demand of the product offered. Worldwide, more … Continue reading → [Link] Thu, 11 Oct 2012 21:27:22 +0000 [Comment]
