Definitions, diversity, emergent learning and responsibility in MOOCs

Jenny Connected

Add to this problem, the diversity of people who are reading/using the definition and we get yet more interpretations. And we must remember that diversity is a key principle of MOOCs, so we can’t ignore it. It is expected that the learning will be unpredictable and emergent. Despite being orientation week in ChangeMOOC there have already been some interesting discussions. From these it is clear that MOOC is becoming a more familiar term.

Lassoing the coltish concepts of Emergent Learning and MOOCs

Jenny Connected

Why is it that when we find something wonderfully creative, emergent and innovative, we often try to ‘capture’ it, constrain and contain it, package it, order it, thereby effectively destroying what it was about it that attracted us to it in the first place?

Embracing Uncertainty, Diversity and Othering for Learning

Full Circle Associates

Our hypothesis in the learning to learn project (LAL for the acronym lovers out there) was that simply by creating more space and opportunity for conversational interaction between project staff, new insights would emerge and existing insights would gain wider visibility and application. Learning is also random, chaotic, free flowing, emergent, and what we learn may often be different than what we set out to learn.

Evaluating open learning scenarios – keynote presentation

Jenny Connected

The environment encouraged autonomy, diversity, openness and interaction. Why are we interested in emergent learning? Following our research into our first MOOC experience, we realized that it was very difficult to ‘pin down’ and explain how and what learners learned in the MOOC and began to understand that this was because much of the learning was unpredictable, unexpected and emergent. We have described this as the sharply emergent zone.
