In a few weeks, our edX course Data, Analytics, and Learning (#DALMOOC https://www.edx.org/course/utarlingtonx/utarlingtonx-link5-10x-data-analytics-2186 ) will start. We (Carolyn Rose, Dragan Gasevic, Ryan Baker, and I) have spent the last several months thinking through the course structure and format. This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. To address these challenges, we have adopted/developed the following approaches.

Instructional Design Orthodoxy

Xyleme

I will be dating myself here, but so much of the orthodoxy in the instructional design process was forged back in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the only Computer-Based Training (CBT) tools were Toolbook for the PC, and Hypercard for the Mac. The idea that you might allow scrolling was to many an Instruction Designer taboo. However, in just in the past year, we’ve finally seen a shift driven, I believe, by the adoption of tablet devices like the iPad and now the Kindle fire.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. My experience is that your standard academic simply won't touch this stuff (learning design). We won't find any faculty willing to adopt these tools.

What you learn not as important as how you learn!

It’s meta-learning, of course, learning how to learn! Learners, to adopt their own pedagogy, need to see a pedagogy. The courses that are designed in the above two cases will, of necessity, change.

70:20:10 - A Framework for High Performance Development Practices

Charles Jennings

They simply remind us of the facts above – that the majority of learning and development comes through experiential and social learning in the workplace (the ‘70’ and ‘20’) rather than through formal classes and courses (the ‘10’). Why Have So Many Organisations Adopted 70:20:10?

Carrying forward

Clark Quinn

During my presentation in Minneapolis on future-looking applications of technology to learning, the usual and completely understandable question came up about how to change an organization to buy-in to this new way of acting in the world: to start focusing on performance outcomes and not courses. I suggested making small changes in what was being done now: push back a bit on the immediate request for a course, and start really diving into the real performance problem.

The role of the university?

Clark Quinn

Naturally, of course, we also include literacy of many sorts (not just reading and writing), and ideally, thinking like a mathematician and scientist (not science and math). Similarly, pursuing one fixed course of study won’t make sense anymore, as the fields are beginning to change, and the arbitrary categorizations won’t make sense. I think, in the long term, this sort of model has to be adopted. Tags: design social strategy
