  1. 1. Designing Personal Learning Environments: Staff and Student Considerations in a Digital Landscape Professor Mike Keppell Executive Director Australian Digital Futures Institute 1Wednesday, 14 November 12 1
  2. 2. Overview ‣ Horizon trends and challenges ‣ Personal Learning Environments ‣ Spaces ‣ Tools ‣ People ‣ Academic learning spaces ‣ Student learning spaces ‣ ICulture ‣ Disconnecting ‣ Ecological university 2Wednesday, 14 November 12 2
  3. 3. Horizon Trends ‣ People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want. ‣ The abundance of resources and relationships will challenge our educational identity. ‣ Students want to use their own technology for learning. ‣ Teaching paradigms across all sectors are shifting to include online learning, hybrid learning and collaborative models. ‣ 3Wednesday, 14 November 12 3
  4. 4. Challenges n Seamless learning – people expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want. n Digital literacies – capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society (JISC) n Personalisation - our learning, teaching, place of learning, technologies will be individualised n Digital scholarship will be the norm. 4Wednesday, 14 November 12 4

  8. 8. Personal Learning Spaces ‣ Personal Learning Environments (PLE) integrate formal and informal learning spaces ‣ Customised by the individual to suit their needs and allow them to create their own identities. ‣ A PLE recognises ongoing learning and the need for tools to support life-long and life- wide learning. 8Wednesday, 14 November 12 8

  18. 18. Connectivism ‣ PLE may also require new ways of learning as knowledge has changed to networks and ecologies (Siemens, 2006). ‣ The implications of this change is that improved lines of communication need to occur. ‣ “Connectivism is the assertion that learning is primarily a network-forming process” (p. 15). 18Wednesday, 14 November 12 18
  19. 19. Personal Learning Environments Interactions Spaces Tools PLE People Interactions Interactions 19Wednesday, 14 November 12 19
  20. 20. Academic Learning Spaces n Physical, blended or virtual ‘areas’ that: n enhance academic ‘work’ n that motivate academic ‘work’ n enable networking n Spaces where academics optimize the perceived and actual affordances of the space. 20Wednesday, 14 November 12 20
  21. 21. Discursive Spaces n Intellectual and discursive spaces focus on the contribution to public discourse in areas such as: n e.g. presentations, media, advising, translating research into practical benefits, community involvement, etc n MOOCs? 21Wednesday, 14 November 12 21
  22. 22. Epistemological Spaces n Epistemological spaces focus on the “space available for academics to pursue their own research interests” (p. 76). n e.g. labs, libraries, collaborations and networking with university colleagues 22Wednesday, 14 November 12 22
  23. 23. Pedagogical and Curricular Spaces n Pedagogical and curricular spaces focus on the spaces available to trial new pedagogical approaches and new curricular initiatives. n e.g. physical and virtual sandpits, working groups, meetings, etc n MOOCs? 23Wednesday, 14 November 12 23
  24. 24. Wednesday, 14 November 12 24
  25. 25. Wednesday, 14 November 12 25
  26. 26. Ontological Spaces n Ontological spaces focus on ‘academic being’ which is becoming increasingly multi-faceted beyond the research, teaching and community commitments. In fact “the widening of universities’ ontological spaces may bring both peril and liberation” (p. 77). n MOOCs? n e.g.diverse roles may include: academic staff developer, professional developer, manager, administrator, facilitator, teacher, researcher, evaluator, presenter, writer, editor, consultant, project manager, change agent and innovator. 26Wednesday, 14 November 12 26

  33. 33. Ecological University n Global connectedness and dependence on world around them n Instead of ‘having an impact’ on the world which can be both positive and negative ecological universities seek sustainability n They are self-sustainable in their multiple levels of interactions. n They adopt a ‘care for the world’ as opposed to an ‘impact on the world’ approach (Barnett, 2011). 33Wednesday, 14 November 12 33
  34. 34. Ecological University nNetworked university nValues and fosters its networks and their interconnectedness nFeels a responsibility to the well-being of these networks (Barnett, 2011). 34Wednesday, 14 November 12 34
  35. 35. Conclusions ‣ Importance of documenting our PLE ‣ Pros and cons of PLEs ‣ Balancing the higher purpose ‣ Being able to disconnect 35Wednesday, 14 November 12 35
