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. They could also be changed.

Constraints and Change in ChangeMooc

Thanks to Jon Dron for a fascinating week in Changemooc, which started with discussions about the need to balance hard and soft technologies in learning environments and ended with discussion and reflection on whether MOOCs need to integrate more constraints to allow for greater emergent learning, engagement and creativity. According to Jon Dron, the ‘sweet spot’ in networks, sets and groups is the balance point between the hard and soft technologies where emergent things happen.

Chris Corrigan

SImply, disruption is what happens when the plans we thought we had have suddenly changed. Diversity and complexity means disruption. Do you get stressed by unexpected change?
