TULIP: the Theoretical Upper Limit of Impact of Products

Wed, 03 May 2017 20:23:56 +0000

Today and tomorrow I’m at the EdTech Efficacy Research Academic Symposium in Washington, DC. The conversations here have been wonderful and have reminded me of something… For many years, several friends and I have argued about the following question: After accounting for all other differences – differences in a student’s age, race, gender, income, and […]

OER-Enabled Pedagogy

Tue, 02 May 2017 17:16:10 +0000

Over the last several weeks there has been an incredible amount of writing about open pedagogy and open educational practices (samples collected here by Maha). There have been dozens of blog posts. Countless tweets. There was a well-attended (and well-viewed) conversation via Google Hangout. At the Hewlett OER Meeting last week over a dozen people […]

Wandering Through the “Open Pedagogy” Maze

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 18:22:19 +0000

Some random thoughts emerging in my mind as a result of yesterday’s wonderful conversation on “open pedagogy.” Don’t work too hard to figure out how they’re supposed to connect up. What we do with tools and resources is more important than the tools and resources themselves. However, without tools and resources there is precious little […]

When Opens Collide

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 17:05:14 +0000

In my recent post How is Open Pedagogy Different?, I defined open pedagogy as ”the set of teaching and learning practices only possible or practical in the context of the 5R permissions” – a definition I have been using in my writing and public speaking since I first blogged about open pedagogy back in 2013 […]

Another Response to Stephen

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 21:30:21 +0000

A quick search via Google shows that Stephen Downes is mentioned over 500 times on the pages of Iterating Toward Openness. What would I do without him to disagree and argue with? I would certainly be intellectually impoverished. As I’ve said before, everyone needs a Stephen in their life. Anyway, here’s another page to add […]

Of Progress, Problems, and Partnerships

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 16:02:59 +0000

In 2012 Kim Thanos and I founded Lumen Learning because, through our Gates-funded work on the Kaleidoscope Project, we had seen first-hand how hard it was for faculty to replace publisher materials with OER. The 2000s were an inspiring decade as institutions and individuals created and published a huge amount of openly licensed educational materials […]

Open Source Tools for Learning Data Analysis, Continuous Improvement, and Machine Learning

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 19:38:05 +0000

And now for something completely different… I’m taking a pause from talking directly about open for a moment to share some resources I’ve recently found that have made my data life much more efficient and enjoyable. But don’t worry – there’s still a connection to open. I spend a lot of my time working in […]

How Is Open Pedagogy Different?

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 15:11:46 +0000

UPDATE: For my latest thinking on open pedagogy, see the post When Opens Collide. The post below will remain here for archival purposes. I feel like words should mean something. Especially the word “open.” Specifically, I’m deeply concerned about the way many have begun using “open” in the context of “open pedagogy,” because I can’t […]

Pearson and the Big Winner

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 05:56:05 +0000

In a recent interview, Pearson CEO John Fallon said: “Education like every other sector and sphere of life is going through this digital transformation. There is going to be a big winner in the transformation in education. We are absolutely determined to make Pearson that winner.” This is perhaps the clearest statement I’ve ever read […]
