Presence Pedagogy: Needs Some More Dimensions

Kapp Notes

The other day, I discovered an interesting article, Presence Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning in a 3D Virtual Immersive World , which describes an educational approach for conducting a learning event in a virtual immersive environment.

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Online Teachers: Instructions - Online Pedagogy/Teaching Tools How to facilitate synchronous learning for real and virtual learners using technology? I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. It made me immediately think back to my first experience with an online session.

Think about it: if you marry your pedagogy to your content, who does that suit? Sometimes I am a contrarian thinker. Not because I enjoy antagonism – I don’t. I just don’t trust the echo chamber. And the echo chamber has been giving learning styles a beating.

We Teach as We are Taught

Kapp Notes

In terms of pedagogy, much of the efforts during the current generation of teacher’s formative years were focused on the students as empty vessels to be filled with the wisdom of the instructor. As schools adapt to new technologies and hardware and software, curriculum changes need to reflect more than just the inclusion of technology; changes needs to impact methodology, approach and instructional activities.

It’s a step towards the goal I’m trying to find about taking an architecture like the diagram, and finding a flexible and powerful pedagogy that can distribute learning across our activity and life.

The role of the university?

Clark Quinn

Now, I talked some time ago about my ongoing search for wisdom , and the notion of a wise curriculum coupled with a wise pedagogy very much permeate my thinking. It would necessitate a change in pedagogy as well. Naturally, this has implications for K12 too, as many have articulately argued that the pedagogy needs to change there as well, following the learners’ interests.

Designing for an uncertain world

Clark Quinn

A pedagogy that looks at slow development over time and rich and engaging experience. My problem with the formal models of instructional design (e.g. ADDIE for process), is that most are based upon a flawed premise. The premise is that the world is predictable and understandable, so that we can capture the ‘right’ behavior and train it. Which, I think, is a naive assumption, at least in this day and age.

Kapp & Driscoll nail Learning in 3D

Clark Quinn

While all too representative of corporate elearning, the contrast of good pedagogy versus bad pedagogy undermines the unique affordances of the virtual world. I note that their principles for virtual world learning design are not unique to virtual worlds, and are essentially no different (except socially) from those in Engaging Learning.

Situated Learning Styles

Clark Quinn

Yet it seems obvious that learners differ, and different learning pedagogies would affect different learners differently. Regardless, using the best media for the message and an enlightened learning pedagogy seems best. I’ve been thrust back into learning styles, and saw an interesting relationship that bears repeating.

Higher^2 Education

Clark Quinn

The problem is multi-faceted: the degrees available increasingly have little appeal, the pedagogies aren’t aligned to success, and the approaches don’t scale. I have just been at my first WCET conference, which is focused on higher ed distance eLearning. Mostly, it’s focused on those in the trenches, that is those who are charged with making it happen. This is not a bad thing, as these are good folks trying to do good work.

Learning Experience Design Strategy

Clark Quinn

I help design pedagogies, processes, templates, and short-, medium-, and long-term steps. There are lots of ways this plays out, not just workshops but developing content models, spreading new metaphors for mobile learning, creating pedagogy templates, and more, but I reckon it is important work, and I have the background to do it. On our weekly twitter learning fest, #lrnchat , I regularly identify myself as a learning experience design strategist.
