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.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on several websites for about a year and am anxious about
    switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!|

  10. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove people from
    that service? Bless you!

    and a good section of people will pass over your great writing because of this problem.

  16. My brother suggested I might like this blog.

  17. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  18. Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the
    other person’s blog link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do similar for you.

  19. Currently you don’t need to have to hire
    a specialist cleaning company when you have this cool little bit of machine.

    It can clean to 2 hundred and twenty-five areas. It has suction electrical power to wash those tough to get to
    areas along with a effective water spray for
    washing those persistent stains. You may use it in your living room, dining-room, bed room, kitchen and bathroom.

    The disadvantage to Mitsubishi XPander is actually the truth
    that it does not get as a lot use as various other styles.
    It does have a highly effective motor and a good electric battery life.
    It carries out possess a restricted warranty as well as ought to be actually substituted within a year of investment.
    If you possess kids or dogs, you may desire to consider
    one more version. This one is actually not highly recommended for houses along with these kinds of things in them however.

    Mitsubishi XPander vacuum cleaners are actually good at their
    job. It washes upholstery, drapes, carpet and also it clean windows also.
    You will not find a better total cleaning service for a price that this is.
    It only may be actually the best market value you’ll ever before locate in vacuum.
    With all the pros, there are a couple of drawbacks.
