Curriculum or pedagogy?

Clark Quinn

So I have argued for a massive project, but using advanced curricula and pedagogy. The simple fact is that we need a better curriculum and a better pedagogy. And our pedagogy is aligned to tests, not to learning nor doing. The point being that most of the world is suffering with bad curricula and pedagogy. I don’t want teachers facilitating the old failed curricula, and I don’t want current pedagogies working on the new curricula.

Merging Pedagogy & Instructional Game Design

Recently, Dr. Stephen Slota, owner of The Pericles Group , joined our BYTE roster for his presentation It’s In the Game: Merging Contemporary Pedagogy & Instructional Game Design. BYTE SESSION RECAP. Gamification and game-based training are two topics trending in learning and performance. Many organizations have yet to embrace these approaches because there’s a perception that fun doesn’t equate to real learning.

Rethinking Design: Pedagogy

Clark Quinn

As part of that, I’ve been looking at elements such as pedagogy in pre-, in-, and post-class sessions so that there are principled reasons behind the design. In thinking through how to design courses that lead to both engaging experiences and meaningful outcomes, I’ve been working on the component activities. So, here I’m looking at trying for guidance to align what happens in all three sections.

Alternate Pedagogies and Experiences

Clark Quinn

And one of the things that has been of interest to me is looking differently at pedagogies. This is the pedagogy that drives the interest in serious games, embedding meaningful practice in a compelling context. In writing about mobile for higher education, other than meeting learner administrative and information needs, I obviously focused more on the formal learning roles mobile devices could facilitate.

True pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

Pedagogy is not about directing children. In its absolute form, pedagogy is not just about teaching. In the truest sense, teaching is just one element of pedagogy and not the entire story. Pedagogy focuses on the learner and what they are capable of achieving. Previously I wrote about the origins of the word pedagogy , and how it can be appropriated into current practice. Pedagogy is about leading learners to the place of education.

New pedagogies?

Learning with 'e's

We need a new set of pedagogies (and we also need to know how these can be supported with theory) if we are to maximise the impact of technology on education. New wine needs to be poured into new wineskins, and similarly new technologies require new pedagogies, which requires us to change the way we teach, assess, and even represent knowledge.

A variety of new approaches to pedagogy have been introduced as a result of our hyperconnected society (of which more in a future blog post). The fact that any of us can access knowledge, expertise and resources so we can learn at any time and in virtually any place, means that the way we see pedagogy must change. Probably not, but teachers will need to re-evaluate what they do, and the pedagogies they employ, when we have tools such as the Pilot available.

X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design

Clark Quinn

I frankly want an activity-based pedagogy and curriculum to support all of these models. Understanding by design is a design approach that works backwards from goals, and if you set your outcomes on performance, and then align activities to require that performance, you have a good chance of impacting pedagogy, and learning, in meaningful ways. The point is to find an umbrella that holds a suite of appropriate pedagogies and makes it difficult to do inappropriate ones.

The meaning of pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

Following on from my recent posts on praxis and the meaning of education , here are a few thoughts on pedagogy. We seem to have many views on the nature of pedagogy and how it is conducted. To gain a clear understanding of pedagogy, we first need to examine the origin - the etymology - of the word. The word pedagogy has its roots in Ancient Greece. Taken in this context, we would probably all agree that pedagogy is about children''s education.

Pedagogy vs. Andragogy: Where Many Get it Wrong In Their Learning Strategy

eLearningMind

It’s not all Greek to us: When we’re talking about eLearning, pedagogy and andragogy are often thrown around. Both of Greek origin, pedagogy literally translates to paidi (child) and ago (guide). By understanding the difference between pedagogy vs andragogy, you’ll have a clearer idea of how and why your subjects learn best. In contrast, pedagogy is an education method in which the learner is dependent on the teacher for guidance, evaluation, and acquisition of knowledge.

Presence Pedagogy: Needs Some More Dimensions

Kapp Notes

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.

Mobile Learning - No Pedagogy Required!

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Pedagogy is defined (according to a quick Googling) as a method or practice of teaching. It may be important for some people to understand pedagogy, but in the corporate world employees and customers just want convenient access to the information they need to be productive: No pedagogy required. In either case, no academic understanding of pedagogy is required.despite our best efforts to make it so.

Pedagogy vs. Andragogy: Where Many Get it Wrong In Their Learning Strategy

eLearningMind

Most professionals in the learning space have used the words “pedagogy” and “andragogy” before. Broken down, pedagogy and andragogy essentially translate to “child guide” and “man guide” respectively. One of the most obvious differences between andragogy and pedagogy is the motivation of the learner. It’s a common mistake and one that might seem like no big deal, but mixing up pedagogy and andragogy (and using the wrong one strategically) makes your learning less effective.
