Academic Branding and Portfolio Control - 0 views

  •  
    Really interesting blog posting by an academic about online portfolios specifically for academics. He favours the "roll your own" approach but the post raises lots of interesting questions like who 'owns' your profile and who has control over it.

Studies Explore Whether the Internet Makes Students Better Writers - Chronicle.com - 0 views

    Maybe interesting to see the results of this study, when it comes out. Msot of it makes intuitive sense (but then I am usually suspicious when that happens ...) I quite liked this exercise: "students are asked to trace the spread of a claim from an academic journal to less prestigious forms of media, like magazines and newspapers, in order to see how arguments are diluted. In another, students are asked to pursue the answer to a research question using only blogs, and to create a map showing how they know if certain information is trustworthy or not."

JISC Web2practice - 0 views

    This is a JISC backed site covering the use of Web2.0 tools in all areas of academic practice...research, teaching and administration. It's currently looking a bit thin (July 2009) but hopefully it will get fleshed out.

I think it might be worth continuing a little longer as it is, but then using the service for an open group/lists i.e. a new group - keep this one for ESD so we can be a little more open on here a...

Finshed reading - Lakoff and Johnson - The Embodied Mind - 0 views

  • I am very disappointed with Philosophy in the Flesh - I think trying to explain away most philosophical debates by re-interpreted them in relation to basic metaphors is simplistic.I was also disappointed with their limited view of the history of psychology - assuming that cognitive psychology started in the 1950's leaves out some important influences - their attempt to produce an embodied theory of the mind would benefit from comparisons with the psychology of Rubenstein and later activity theory.

Constructive and Destructive Group Behaviors | Teaching and Learning Excellence - 0 views

  •  
    Inspired to bookmark this from the grad attributes consultation in which one group had two members who were engaging in 'destructive group behaviours' (brought onto the straight and narrow eventually by a skilled facilitator) ... I have heard it suggested that if groups are being derailed by dominating or digressing types, it can be useful for the whole group to sit down and consider what kind of group member they are in order to limit their unhelpful behaviours and get the group working well again.

    I missed out on the session today so I'm not sure of the context of this, I can imagine though! As an aside...this is a very interesting web site all round...I've just been watching a presentation on "How people learn" and it's interesting from the point of view of the subject matter and from the perspective of how the material has been made available. I know Giles is working hard trying to put together videos of some of our own academics talking about teaching and I look forward to seeing them!

    Collects videos from universities

    Have you seen the "Dim the lights" feature on the video player? How camp is that? It's the usual suspects on here...Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT...wonder if anyone outside the States is going to partner with them. It's got an interesting "Playlist" feature, which isn't your own playlist but a playlist compiled by an "editor" which can feature videos from across different institutions. Quite neat.
