Design of the course. I like the course design and the fact that Stephen Downes ‘walks the talk’ and has been true to his educational philosophy as expounded in his theory of connectivism. The point is that participants exercise their autonomy in choosing how they want to participate. This fits with his belief that the role of the teacher is to model and demonstrate. el30 cMOOC community course design stephen downesFirst a bit of background.

It can be an exercise, an activity, anything that generally relates to the topic. Use models wisely. There’s two types of models. Yeah, yeah – I know there’s way more models than just two. I want to concentrate of the type of models and how we react to them. The first model is drawn on paper (or whiteboard, or flip chart, or screen). Often a step between the idea and the model is a drawing. The first type of model helps explain.

This is exacerbated by the fact that 90% of business analysis exercises are the front end to an IT implementation, so what ends up getting automated is far from a true reflection of a real business requirement.hence the copious number of IT failures and war stories that flood the IT press. This is the title of the talk I gave last week at the Business Analyst World conference in Sydney.
