Is the pedagogy of MOOCs flawed?

Her counter argument was that the pedagogical devices that I cited – readings, online discussion forums, social media groups and local meetups – are the same learning and teaching functionalities available in any LMS. Again, that’s not to say that no e-learning designers integrate devices such as online discussions and social media groups into their LMS-hosted courses, but even if they do, the target audience tends not to play ball.

How The 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 1

This fits within active learning , arguably, in that there’s a desire for the learner to be actually doing something as the basis of learning, though the types of classroom activities of debates and discussions seem not as powerful as others cited below. I frankly want an activity-based pedagogy and curriculum to support all of these models. The point is to find an umbrella that holds a suite of appropriate pedagogies and makes it difficult to do inappropriate ones.

One pertinent example for L&D practitioners is pedagogy (formerly paedagogie ) which derives from the Hellenic words paidos for “child” and agogos for “leader” This etymology underscores our use of the word when we mean the teaching of children.

Andragogy vs. Pedagogy

Big Dog, Little Dog

Pedagogy is derived from the Greek words paid meaning “child&# and agogus meaning “leader of.&# In this pedagogy classroom, the teachers are responsible for all decisions about learning in that they decided what is to be learned, how it is to be learned, when it should be learned, and if it has been learned. They wanted to be able to discuss the growing body of knowledge about adult learners in parallel with pedagogy.

Reflections of a mooc unvirgin

An announcement board kept us up to date, the discussion forums were easy to find, and the final assessment was explained clearly from Day 1. Through the discussions in the course, participation in the social media groups, and comments on my blog posts, I connected with some incredibly smart people from all over the world. With 42,000 participants, it was inevitable that the discussion forum would be swamped. The instructors need to be much more active in the discussions.

don't depend on LMS providers to understand pedagogy

eLearning Evangelist

The LMS is the structure that holds the content -- the instructions, resources, and discussions, etc. Asking the LMS sales person about pedagogy is like asking the school building contractor about teaching. There's an interesting post on Edutopia by Heather Wolpert-Gawron talking about the need for some synchronous F2F communications in order to have effective online learning. Of course, I don't agree.

Ken simply pointed us in the direction of relevant reading, and strategically slipped the names of key theorists into his discussions with us.
