What Do You Call It When Colleges Turn Their Research Powers On Their Own Practices? | ... - 0 views

    "DeVaney compared campus innovation to Japanese pottery. Specifically, he invoked the ancient practice of Kintsugi, the art of repairing broken bowls with brightly-colored laquers, so that the break becomes part of the object's history that is celebrated rather than disguised. "By preserving the damage, by showing that history of an object or an institution, we're able to enlighten those around us," he says. "We're able to illuminate pathways. We're able to help other institutions take advantage of the wisdom that we gained from the journeys that we were on.""

How the Pioneers of the MOOC Got It Wrong - IEEE Spectrum - 0 views

    "early MOOCs failed to incorporate active learning approaches or any of the other innovations in teaching and learning common in other online courses. The three principal MOOC providers-Coursera, Udacity, and edX-wandered into a territory they thought was uninhabited. Yet it was a place that was already well occupied by accomplished practitioners who had thought deeply and productively over the last couple of decades about how students learn online. Like poor, baffled Columbus, MOOC makers believed they had "discovered" a new world. It's telling that in their latest offerings, these vendors have introduced a number of active-learning innovations."

My Flipping Failure - 0 views

    The more able students careened through the work at double quick speed but did not seem to understand that they can move on to the next section with no supervision. It proved impossible for me to break their habit of "returning to teacher" for the next part. I was a new teacher for most of them doing something new and in hindsight this is obvious. I did not want to shoo them away - I had only just met them! I had sixteen times thirty second conversations at the start of each lesson - all different - most not needed.

    The whole theme was how to get kids comfortable with failing. We teach them from the beginning that it really isn't okay, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise in my classroom that they are afraid to go there.
