Jochen Robes über Bildung, Lernen und Trends

What is the theory that underpins our moocs?

So viele Initiativen und Projekte, so viele Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Für George Siemens, einen der Initiatoren der MOOC-Bewegung, ein Anlaß, die eigenen pädagogischen Grundlagen zu reflektieren; auch, aber nicht nur, um Unterschiede festzuhalten. Hier also sein “8-pack of MOOCy distinctions”, deren Titel ich hier kurz wiedergebe. Und um einen wichtigen Absatz von George Siemens ergänze:

“1. Connectivist …
2. Knowledge is generative …
3. Coherence is learner formed & instructor guided …
4. Interactions are distributed, multi-spaced …
5. Synchronization …
6. Resonance …
7. Innovation & impact focused …
8. Fostering autonomous and self-regulated learners

At the core of the MOOCs that I’ve been involved with is a power question: what can learners do for themselves with digital tools and networks? MOOCs foster not only a particular type of knowledge in a particular area of inquiry; they also foster a self-regulated, motivated, and autonomous learner. When an instructor does for learners what learners should do for themselves, the learning experience is incomplete. Developing capacity for learning and the mindsets needed to be successful learners is a central attribute of our MOOCs.”
