Clay Shirky Comes Not to Praise Education, but to Bury It | Inside Higher Ed - 0 views

    Certainly an interesting debate unfolding in the comments. Sadly, I'm on the side of 40 years of history over 15. I'm not holding my breath for the pendulum to swing back at this point...

      Will you try this example of open pedagogy??

    "If you've heard me speak in the last several months, you've probably heard me rail against "disposable assignments." These are assignments that students complain about doing and faculty complain about grading. They're assignments that add no value to the world - after a student spends three hours creating it, a teacher spends 30 minutes grading it, and then the student throws it away. Not only do these assignments add no value to the world, they actually suck value out of the world. Talk about an incredible waste of time and brain power (an a potentially huge source of cognitive surplus)!"

    FWIW, I think Mike Caulfield is one of the brightest and most thoughtful people in higher ed. I like this post very much.

The ethos of our online academic team | The President's Corner - 1 views

  •  
    "When we say students are customers I hope you know that we mean we have a responsibility to them not because they pay us but because they trust us with something they come to us not even quite knowing how to define but knowing they need. And as all of you have been witness to over the time we have been here our endeavors here are most certainly not simply about revenue. Nor is success simply defined by whether a student got a good grade.  Everything, the emphasis on academic quality and outcomes, the funds dedicated to making sure you have the resources you need, your personal and professional development, contradicts the naysayers."

Nice overview of OL issues - 2 views

  •  
    This is old and I certainly don't agree with all of it but I think it's one of the most sober looks at the range of issues VCU needs to consider.

    Besides, I needed to test out my new group membership here.

Colleges prepare to sacrifice the queen | Bryan Alexander - 2 views

  •  
    "To repeat: I do not see the queen sacrifice as a desirable move for American higher education.  I do not relish the reduction of programs, nor the devastation inflicted on the lives of faculty.  But this seems to be a strategy colleges and universities can choose in our current climate, and we must discuss it openly."
