New Public Benefit Corporation, InStride, Launches to Reinvent the Way Employers Bring ... - 0 views

  •  
    "In the United States, about half the people who start college don't finish, leaving 37 million Americans with some college credits but no degree. That's more than 20 percent of the working-age population. In an economy that increasingly demands workers with knowledge and skills, it is imperative that more opportunities are provided for individuals to obtain a university degree. By serving as the key link between universities and employers, InStride will facilitate partnerships that will positively impact the lives of thousands of people who will benefit from a high-quality education."

  •  
    "Graham said Georgetown University research on undereducated workers and "opportunities to upskill them" was a major impetus behind Workforce Education Solutions. The unit is working with industry and NUS academic leaders to reduce friction for workers looking to get more education, potentially for promotions or transfers  - a necessity for employers, too, as their managers retire."

Digital Fluency vs Digital Literacy - 0 views

  •  
    "More recently, this view was reiterated in the 2018 Horizon Report, showing that the issue of digital literacy is an ongoing and significant issue in educator training. Reports from both JISC (2018) and Educause (2017) also highlight a lack of digital literacy as being significant issues for higher education. The JISC report, in particular, highlights the damage to student learning that can be done when faculty lack digital competency noting that, "The report also shines a light on the digital competencies of staff, with many students reporting frustration when lecturers struggle to use digital systems correctly, saying it wastes time and restricts access to digital resources."(2018)."

Faculty and Staff Engagement: A Core Component of Student Success - 0 views

  •  
    Referenced by @tealia "Higher education institutions that want to significantly increase their student success outcomes must design their policies, practices, and organizational culture to promote the engagement and leadership of their faculty and staff. Colleges that invest in designing engagement and empowerment strategies that leverage the talent and dedication of faculty and staff are likely to produce more meaningful and sustainable results."

Edcamps: The 'Unconferences,' Where Teachers Teach Themselves - The New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "Perhaps the best known of many so-called unconference models, Edcamps arose out of the idea that teachers, just like their students, need "voice and choice" to help them learn. Anyone who shows up to these free events can suggest or lead a session, and participants are invited to "vote with their feet" about which to attend."

Creating A Comic Style For Learning - 0 views

  •  
    "Comics are also great at abstracting away details so that readers uses their imagination to focus on what they want. You draw a character simply so that the readers can insert themselves or someone they know and relate to the character. This abstracted style of art also leaves room for comics to be incredibly expressive. Whether it's a smiley face, the dynamic motion of a superhero, or Charlie Brown missing a football, the medium communicates a lot with very little."

3 Necessary Skills for Educators in the Era of A.I. - 0 views

  •  
    "If you're an optimist, you're excited to use these advancements to complement your teaching style. On the other hand, you might be a little concerned that a robot will replace you in the next 3-10 years. In any case, the time to prepare for these changes is now. By practicing and sharpening our human strengths (in other words - robots' weaknesses), we can improve our chances of thriving in a world where AI is ubiquitous in every classroom, school and home. Here are 3 skills to start honing today that give educators an advantage over AI."

It's (still) not OK for teachers to remain digitally illiterate. Here's why… - 0 views

  •  
    "Just over ten years ago, Karl Fisch wrote a blog post that has stuck with me through the years. In it, he asked if it was OK to be a technologically illiterate teacher. Even though we've learned greatly in the last decade about the merits of using technology to replace teachers, I think Karl's arguments back then are even more relevant today."

Evidence-Based Principles for Online Faculty Development - 0 views

  •  
    "Responding to calls for additional resources to support postsecondary instructors, many vendors and organizations now offer online educational development resources. The ultimate goal is to improve instruction and student learning, but to get there, higher education institutions must examine and evaluate these tools, as well as consider the specific needs of diverse campus stakeholders. After research and discussion, the Professional and Organizational Development Network developed eight principles to guide institutions as they explore and select online educational development resources for their campus communities."

The Journey to Lifelong Learning Begins with Professional Development | ASCD Inservice - 0 views

  •  
    "PD, like any type of learning, works best for educators when it is connected, both to what the educators personally find intriguing and what they are professionally immersed in. That means that sticky PD can't be "new day, new topic." Learners have to truly dig in (and want to dig in) in order for the learning to be meaningful. That is why PD has to be cyclical; if we want to help educators become lifelong learners, we have to provide learning opportunities that aren't meant to end."

Love Letter to Online Learning - MICHELLE PACANSKY-BROCK - 0 views

  •  
    " humans are more important than technology, but inspiring faculty should be our goal. Our organizational cultures need to embrace online learning as unique. We need to be supporting faculty by immersing them in engaging, meaningful online classes as part of their preparation to becoming great online instructors. When our organizational practices convey a hierarchy between face-to-face and online classes, that hierarchy will translate into the attitudes of the instructors who teach those classes."

The Future of Faculty Development in a Networked World - 0 views

  •  
    "personalized learning that routinely provides opportunities for students to become co-creators and curators of content as part of the learning process should become a normative learning objective and expectation. Assessments that not only allow but expect learners to demonstrate curricular mastery through knowledge application, rather than knowledge consumption, are likely to become increasingly important over the horizon.
