A ‘starter’ bibliography on design models for teaching and learning

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/MIT-MOOC-panel-548x305.jpgBy Tony Bates. For the increasing number of students doing Masters’ dissertations or Ph.D’s on course or instructional design I have collected together for convenience all the references made in my chapter on course design models for my open textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital World.’ However, there are many other publications – this cannot be considered a comprehensive list. Also note the date of this blog post: anything published after this will not be here, unless you let me know about it. I also tend to give preference to open access publications, which means that there are a lot of articles in academic journals not on this list that should be there. Read more...

What design model for teaching and learning should you use in a digital age?

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/MIT-MOOC-panel-548x305.jpgBy Tony Bates. I have now finished the first draft on Chapter 6, Models for Designing Teaching and Learning, and this is now published as part of my open textbook, Teaching in a Digital Age.
The chapter covers the following design models:

    6.1 What is a design model?
    6.2 The classroom design model
    6.3 Old wine in new bottles: classroom-type online learning
    6.4 Online collaborative learning
    6.5 The ADDIE model
    6.6. Design models for experiential learning
    6.7. Competency-based learning
    6.8 Communities of practice
    6.9 Massive Open Online Courses
    6.10 ‘Agile’ Design: flexible designs for learning
    6.11 Making decisions about design models
    6.12 References on design models

Most of it has been published as posts on this blog, except the last section (6.11), which I’m sharing with you here. I will publish the complete bibliography for the chapter separately. Read more...

Can you do experiential learning online? Assessing design models for experiential learning

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/MIT-MOOC-panel-548x305.jpgBy Tony Bates. One of the frustrating things about writing a book (Teaching in a Digital World) is that just when you think you’ve finished a chapter, you realise you have missed out something really important. I thought I’d covered the main learning design models when I became aware that I hadn’t covered experiential learning. Read more...

Two design models for online collaborative learning: same or different?

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/MIT-MOOC-panel-548x305.jpgBy Tony Bates. Here I am looking at the work of two separate and important Canadian theorists and practitioners, what we might call the Toronto school, Linda Harasim and her former colleagues at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) in Toronto (although Linda has been firmly based for 25 years at SFU in Vancouver/Burnaby), and the Alberta school, Randy Garrison, and colleagues Terry Anderson and Walter Archer. However, they are not the only contributors to the design of online collaborative learning, as the following post makes clear. Read more...

‘Agile’ Design: Flexible designs for the digital age

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/MIT-MOOC-panel-548x305.jpgBy Tony Bates. Before I was rudely interrupted by MOOCs, I had almost finished my chapter on Models for Designing Teaching and Learning for my open textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital Age.‘ I have now finished the last of the design models, which I have called ‘Agile Design’ because it is a new and as yet unestablished approach to course design.

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2014: School and "Skills"

https://s3.amazonaws.com/hackedu/audreywatters_75.jpgBy . One of the challenges of pulling together this year end series is that education technology doesn’t break down neatly into ten separate trends. “The Business of Ed-Tech” bleeds into the politics of ed-tech, for example. More...

Hack Education Weekly News: FBI Seizes LAUSD iPad Documents

Via The Chronicle of Higher Education: “Are MOOC-Takers ‘Students’? Not When It Comes to the Feds Protecting Their Data
Via Politico: “Massive open online courses, first envisioned as a way to democratize higher education, have made their way into high schools, but Washington is powerless to stop the flood of personal data about teenage students from flowing to private companies, thanks to loopholes in federal privacy laws.”

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2014: The Business of Ed-Tech

https://s3.amazonaws.com/hackedu/audreywatters_75.jpgBy . I usually end my analysis of all the trends in ed-tech on the topic of “the business of ed-tech.” (See: 2013, 2012, 2011.) Because “the business of ed-tech” really (sadly) sums up so handily most of what has happened in education technology over the course of the past few years. More...

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2014: Buzzwords

https://s3.amazonaws.com/hackedu/audreywatters_75.jpgBy . It’s time once again for my annual review of the dominant trends in education technology. This is the fifth year that I’ve done this. It’s a massive undertaking, aided in part by the weekly roundups of all the education-related news that I write every week. It’s a project that I both dread – I mean, this is how I will spend December – and adore. I learn so much about the politics, industry, implementation, ideology, business, and bullshit by scrutinizing the year's occurences so closely. More...

The Monsters of Education Technology

https://s3.amazonaws.com/hackedu/audreywatters_75.jpgBy . I was supposed to spend 2014 finishing my first book Teaching Machines. But that didn’t happen. It didn’t happen for a lot of reasons, many of which have to do with the economic realities of being a woman outside of academia, outside of mainstream journalism writing about ed-tech. Strangely, I don’t get offered big book deals.
Instead I spent much of 2014 on the road, traveling and speaking extensively about ed-tech’s histories, ideologies, and mythologies. People will pay you to keynote, I’ve learned, (or at least, they'll pay your travel expenses) even if you insist that you're a writer, not a speaker. More...
