Live Blogging from Online Learning Consortium

I’m at the OLC Accelerate 2016 conference in Orlando, Florida! This conference is hosted by the Online Learning Consortium. This session is a panel on “International Learning in Time: Scholarship, Practice and Policy for Real World, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Space“. The focus of this session is on adult education. Right off the bat, there are a few very interesting handouts on the table on the idea of heutagogy. Heutagogy, in a nutshell, refers to a type of learning. It actually refers more specifically to “self-directed learning” (see work by Stewart Hase and Chris Kenyon). It’s especially important in a digital age where knowledge is at our fingertips, but learners may need guidance. The chart below breaks down a few different frameworks of learning that applies to adult learners. This can be useful in my own thinking of teaching adult preservice teachers. A goal of mine is to encourage the students, who are novices in learning about becoming a teacher, to explore as much as they can about literacy lesson design. I need to be more intentional in my guidance of this exploration.

What are your own thoughts on heutagogy? What are the implications for online learning/distance ed? Matt Crosslin of the UT Arlington LINK Lab, writes a lot about heutagogy in his EduGeek blog. It is worth reading.

Other notes from this panel:

James Pappas and predictions of transformative trends: Growth of online in colleges and universities [yes!]. A challenge is how we integrate online offerings into the mainstream curriculum? How academic technology becomes a core part of activities. Second trend: growth of non-traditional/post-traditional students (e.g., older students over 25). Post-graduate certificates fastest growing credential in higher education. Higher ed as a political issue due to increasing carts. Increasing use of marketing in higher education. Example, Northwester University has established a new position, “chief marketing officer”. Idea of internet based marketing. Already seeing websites that help people to select schools. Changing of the professorate–faculty as subject matter experts. Prediction of unbundling of faculty role.

  6. There are many solutions to begin finding your true self, one ofthese is actually
    connecting on your own physically through self-massage.
    If there is the required time, stay at the sauna, hot
    tub or steam bath facility for the day spa. Research has indicated that nurturing touch boosts the release of oxytocin, a hormone that creates
    a sense of nurturing and sensation of trust.

  9. I am starting a business during the summer where I work with kids individually or during a camp. I was wondering how I could start a website for my clients parents to look at during the summer..

  10. of course like your website but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come again again.|

  11. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.

  13. Could not have said it better Ryan you have it solved.
    Very well explained, Ryan. Well the same is true about friends.

    Such stories cannot be classed as true or false; they are simply reflections of the way you see the world.
    I am forM NZ but have traveled the world wearing what I like and
    that holds true for the rest of the world too. It is NOT about men wearing “feminine” skirts, rather it
    IS about men RECLAIMING masculine skirted garments, which have always been a men’s garment, worn by men throughout every era of history and still today
    in many countries. We look back on this and see how absurd it was that women could not wear pants yet we fail to see that we judge men today with these same old fashion sexism for wearing skirts.

    People today more open minded than in the 90s which means it is on a
    good way. It is an attenpt to look macho but it doesn’t look
    good. For a good dating you should create a right profile for instant messaging.

  14. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site

    an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?

    fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to

    By using this blog, people could suitably develop knowledge of diverse sexual
    intimacy job opportunities that will have fun with self confidence
    by only with the help of fresh new love-making jobs. Akonne adds that when he first started, he
    thought he would be done with stripping within six months to a year, but was seduced by the appeal of the stage and the fun of the job.
    Some individuals simultaneously observe adult porn cinema the choices find good information regarding gender as well as every
    youngster offers the appeal to to comprehend sexually graphic so check out porn tv shows so you
    can get intimacies comprehension. The escorts
    are beautiful and busty, and know exactly where to touch a man to
    get his senses going. A companion needs to accompany the man to place like restaurant, dance floors or even in meetings as
    well and London escorts fit on both criteria.

  23. The pic and others have been posted many times on twitter and
    worse. I post it because young women by the 100’s
    are exploited by men and women such as Epsteins girlfriend.
    So when a man in high position thinks it’s normal to pose with a number of naked
    girls it needs looking at!

  24. A new chat room for anyone from anywhere in the world.

    Imagine getting to know someone and forming a connection so strong, their face lights up when they
    see your username in their room. On the heels of the “Modern Family” season 10 finale in May 2019, Eric Stonestreet said
    he believes the show helped make America less homophobic.
    We can help you to speed up you sex search and make
    it an enjoyable and fun experience. KC is a “live” chat and is a very social
    environment where people of all walks of life, ages, backgrounds, upbringings, lifestyles etc congregate to make new friends, chat with
    existing friends and be in a place where almost
    everyone has kink/fetish as a common interest. Just follow me,
    get off of that lame omegle chat and enjoy a
    night of ecstacy like you were meant to. There are many adult webcam sites
    advertizing free chat rooms, but what does it really mean?

  25. According to a certain cam girl I have an affinity
    for, Thanksgiving no matter the date it falls on always somehow means it’s my
    birthday. Perhaps I was a turkey in another life and this certain cam
    girl pardoned me. Or ate me.

  26. Doug, an Australian transplant, has created a European style backpacker lodge with an open air gathering place
    that boasts internet access. If there is plenty of
    time, remain at the sauna, hot tub or steam
    bath facility during the day spa. These factors can be a
    life-changing injury in case your career is dependent upon your fitness level or just being on your feet for
    prolonged periods.

  27. Forensic Science is beyond amazing and being used more
    accurately. Even a few cents per transaction will accumulate to hefty sums
    with the traffic which will characterize
    the Net (or, at least its more popular locales). Learnt quite a few things from
    this thoroughly researched material. The Creator of wonderful things.
    Even if it is a temporary thing, things can get better when you are to the point.

    They don’t care what they must put even their little children through,
    to get even with the ex-husband to be. Believe me, if it was
    themselves or someone who really mattered to them that was being put to death they would have different thoughts.
    Am from kenya,, i have tried but it has never worked.
    I think it’s just a scam by the criminal and apparently it worked in Maurice Clemmons case.
    I think the whole judicial system is flawed.
    Our justice system isn’t perfect and never will be so
    long as it’s managed by humans.

  28. Unlike cold approaches or day game, successfully picking up women at parties hinges on your level of social proof among the people in attendance.
    Another mindset to be weary of is focusing too much on sex and picking up
    girls. What you may not realize is how much information you can uncover online about sex offenders and other criminals who pose
    a threat to your family. The demand for these games is so much that
    there are entire sites dedicated to these Police Games.
    Ragers and house parties are different beasts, so anytime
    you can get people high fiving, playing games and dancing is a plus.
    Shopping with an online condom seller can be a good option if you are using condoms for the first time and you
    are not that familiar with all the options available.
    Shopping online gives you greater privacy that the high street.

    In any case, always remember the basic rules, never publish your personal data, your
    phone number and other information that would endanger your privacy.
    I was the quiet one, typically tucked away at the corner of the couch, fiddling away on my
    cell phone until it was time to leave. Also is there a similarly quiet model that has a 120/144hz screen?
