Innovation in Higher Education

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Tuition costs have risen much faster than the rate of inflation and keep going up, thus making it harder for them to serve the students most in need of their services.  Why are the costs of higher education so high?  Their high costs were subsidized by philanthropic donations and government funds.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It was started in 2001, and the main spec came out in 2003. We won't find any faculty willing to adopt these tools. more open, collaborative support environment has potentioal to lead wider adoption. We write these specs, but there's no adoption. We all agree, I think, it's vry slow adoption. You can Google it.

Note: I'm posting this as an example of a rigorous examination and deconstruction of an academic paper. these are my notes on Kirschner, Sweller and Clark's paper Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching.

Cognitive load

Harold Jarche

But yes, to get buy-in you may go the strategy route; but that’s just to get your foot in the door, and it’s also to help the blank faces when they are given tools that aren’t designed to do a specific thing…and what it takes to get adoption (the difference between transactional and interactional). via @johnt.

Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Translation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The unidirectional nature of knowledge transfer has often proved to be an ineffective way to ensure adoption and implementation of research results ( Landry, Lamari and Amara, 2001 )." 2003 )." and we would probably want to adopt another approach with respect to research and its application as well. As Davis, et.al.

[berkman] The MoveOn Effect

David Weinberger

Theda Skocpol in her 2003 book Diminished Democracies said that we need to look at the displacement of cross-class membership federations by professionally-managed advocacy. Existing advocacy orgs have high overhead costs. The out-party is more likely to adopt the new technology. NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong.

IMS Curriculum Standards Workshop

Even if the supposedly anonymous results of all 104 players who tested positive in 2003 are revealed, there will still be more questions than answers. Rosenheck realized that this lack of 100% adoption opened the door to a clever test of steriods’ impact, a test that didn’t depend on knowing or even guessing who the users were.

It costs us money to go through these exercises - they all charge. 60 percent of hackers targeted financial institutions in 2003. Ontario, for example, is adopting a system.

Education, Technology and Myth

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One example is research which understands technological innovations as being "disseminated" throughout a population (often the faculty at a university, as it happens; e.g. Mahony & Wozniak, 2005 ; Bull et al, 2002 ; Garofoli & Woodell, 2003 ; PT3 2002 ). Can we continue to build faster processors and better memory for lower costs?

the cognitive transaction costs) do not impede the collaboration process. Seeback and Kirschner deemphasize this result by mentioning, "But the negatives include lower scores on basic science tests, more study time and a pattern of ordering significantly more unnecessary tests at a much higher cost per patient with less benefit."
