The Digital Scholar in a public research university - any incentives at the University of Kentucky? CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Nov 12, 2012
Body: In finishing up this week a connectivist MOOC on the future of higher education (, I began reading Martin Weller's book, The Digital Scholar: How Technology is Transforming Scholarly Practice (2011). I hadn't read it before and found many parts of it very helpful.  In chapter 4 Weller discusses different definitions of "scholarship" and how the Internet and digital technologies have crafted new channels of communications and scholarly practice. http://...

Educational Leadership in Times of Revolutionary Change - CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Nov 05, 2012
Body: In the readings for the MOOC on the current/future state of education, EdFuture, I found this quotation: "Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe." H.G. Wells, (1866-1946) "The Outline of History" (1920) Ch. 41   Drew Faust, president of Harvard University and historian, on change management.  Her interview focuses on what she's learned from Lincoln and what the Civil War teaches us about the human tendency to resist ...

Learning Analytics, Big Data and other ribosomes - CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Oct 30, 2012
Body: Whether we in higher ed choose to look or not, we've got them: ribosomes.  Some roam free and some are bound in place - but they exist in every living cell and are best observed at the atomic level. So if we agree that learning analytics is more than just metrics projected on a ledger sheet, then we can envision the strategic plan behind the metrics... and how it can be revised or even destroyed.   In Jacqueline Bichsel's "Analytics in Higher Education: Benefits, ...

Educational Entrepreneurs and the Future of Higher Ed, CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Oct 30, 2012
Body: As part of the Edfuture MOOC, we've been asked to consider this week the topic of entrepreneurship and commercial activity in education.  I was particularly impressed with the October 22 webinar with Debra Quazzo, founder of the QVC Advisors and an education investor herself. Speaking at breakneck speed, she showered us with facts about the transformation of higher education - and that the speed of change is dramatically increasing.  With slides labeled "confidential" ...

EdFuture, CFHE12 MOOC, and what we might do at the University of Kentucky?
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Oct 24, 2012
Body: The EdFuture MOOC led by George Siemans (of the connectivist MOOC ilk) asks us here in Week 2 to think about "Net pedagogies" that is, "New models of teaching and learning."   I was so sure going into this course that phrases like "Net pedagogies" or "flipped classrooms" are simply rehashing of previously demonstrated good teaching practices with new bells and whistles for marketing purposes.  However, when presented with the Week 2 ...

Youth as Change Drivers in Higher Education cfhe12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Oct 12, 2012
Body: We were asked in a discussion forum for the Edfutures MOOC to think about change drivers in higher ed.  Lots of choices presented by others, very convincingly.  Mine was "our youth" with not much to back it up, just an assumption that has been building up since I first began to understand why I wanted to become an educator... and wrote my M.A.T. project at Colgate U on the educative power of the community-based learning strategies of Foxfire. When I came to the ...

CFHE12 and Edfuture - a MOOC on the Future of Higher Education
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts, Oct 09, 2012
Body: My first day in the MOOC faciliated by George Siemens and Rory McGreal. Went ahead and skimmed the readings and the class introductions.  Intrigued by the course topics:   and hoping I can stick with it.  Gave the first discussion board a go - opined about "our youth" as being the change drivers for our future (rather than economics or politics/policy).  I'm hoping that it will attract someone who has some expertise to ...
