I notice that I rarely talk of Higher Education any more - or Higher Teaching as its called in Portugal (Ensino Superior) .
<stifles a yawn>
Oh, but great jumping jelly beans, perhaps it's time now to bring out a post.
At my place we're going to start doing e-learning. Next year, I think. Our leaders have decided that Moodle is the e-learning solution and we will get some technical training on how to use it and become e-teachers.
Umm ... you might be wondering where my work on learning in distributed communities fits into this scenario. Well, rest assured, it doesn't. It stays quite separate from my Institution, where it's not relevant.
Now can I move on to talk about learning? You know, that F****** cool thing that takes place in my projects Outside The Teaching Institution.
Kathy Sierra of Creating Passionate Users has a GREAT diagramme mapping out what we teach and what students really need. And you have to read the post.
And so the more I play in the pink area the less I identify with formal Education.
