Graham Attwell challenged me to describe my working place as a learning place: illustrating my description with five photographs. For me, like Steve Wheeler, work and learning are pretty much inseparable – indeed I’ve used the term ‘Personal Work and Learning Environment‘ in a few papers I’ve written exploring how an individual’s informal learning during … Continue reading "Working space as learning place"(image)

Yishay Mor has been promoting a survey from the MOOC Design patterns project asking for MOOC design challenges ( It was a simple bit of work to reverse engineer the recommendations Allison and I had developed last year for our PL-MOOC study. Here are the design challenges i came up with. 1. Personalisation: how can … Continue reading "MOOC Design Challenges"(image)

  We’ve now reached the end of the funding period for PL-MOOC and, while there is still some analysis to conduct and some papers and outputs to write, the final report is written and the main findings synthesised. Allison and I have tweeted about the recommendations and the main findings but I thought i would … Continue reading "PL-MOOC study reflection"(image)

Back a few days from mri13 and now that the experience has settled in somewhat I thought I would try and reflect on the conference and what I learned about the current mooc landscape and its impact on our research here at the Caledonian Academy. First off, thanks to George Siemens and Co. for bringing … Continue reading "MOOC Research Conference"(image)

One of my frustrations with MOOCs is that while they provide value for the individual, their (lack of) collective value is a missed opportunity. Although I’ve had a blog post in the works for almost a year, I could never work out how to write it concisely. A recent post by Rachel Harris of Inspire Research  provided … Continue reading "Productive MOOCs"(image)

From consumption to curation – but where are we headed.ColinImage

Wed, 27 Mar 2013 14:51:13 +0000

We have previously described four learning behaviours which we feel describe the ways in which an individual engages with their personal and work learning environment/ personal learning network. See Littlejohn, Milligan and Margaryan, 2011 and Milligan, Littlejohn and Margaryan, 2012 for academic papers). We term the behaviours the 4c’s: consume, connect, create and contribute. We … Continue reading "From consumption to curation – but where are we headed."(image)

Lurkers, lurking and labelsColinConic Hill from Drymen primary school

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 12:18:05 +0000

Our SRL-MOOC study has been getting some attention thanks to a post by Phil Hill which built on the categories I had assigned to learners in Change11 that were emerging from our data analysis. There’s been some discussion going back and forth in the comments (where I think it ought to be), but a comment … Continue reading "Lurkers, lurking and labels"(image)
