Productive discomfort: Fostering learning in an inquiry-driven class

  3. 3. –Kris Shaffer, “An Open Letter to My Students” ! http://www.hybridpedagogy.com/journal/open-letter-students/ “I want you to learn how to learn. That means that at times you will be teaching yourself. This is an intentional choice. One of my chief goals is for you to take charge of your own education. Though I will help set a frame in which this will take place, many of you will feel uncomfortable, even overwhelmed, at this. That’s normal. It’s what independent learning feels like quite often. (Because it’s what teaching feels like.) However, if at any time you feel lost, please talk to me. I have gone through the same process many times before, both as a student and as a teacher. I may not remove the discomfort immediately, or at all, but I will help you learn to manage it and harness it to a positive outcome.”

Mark Sample, “Intrusive Scaffolding, Obstructed Learning (and MOOCs) ! http://www.samplereality.com/2012/12/18/intrusive-scaffolding-obstructed-learning-and-moocs/ “Training wheels externalize the hardest part of riding a bike. If you’re a little kid and want to start riding a bike, training wheels are great. If you’re a little kid and want to start to learn how to ride a bike, training wheels will be your greatest obstacle.”
