LIN-R Final Programme Meeting Slides

  1. 1. LIN-R Roger Rees, Ruth Catlow, Leonard Houx, Miles Metcalfe
  2. 2. Original aims • Adapt and apply social networking and “web 2.0” to practice-based pedagogy • Integrate institutional systems into the technology students and staff actually use • Incorporate the use of learner-owned technology into the learning process (PDP) • Ways to understand extra-institutional versus institutional systems through the prism of a PLE
  3. 3. Our audience • Learners, teachers, and learning support - in a specialist vocational HE institution serving the creative industries • Learners are 18+, career-focused, motivated within their own discipline - communications or design • We assumed they’d be pretty tech-savvy
  4. 4. Approach • User-led • Small-scale • Loosely-coupled • Take a cross-college unit • With a view to wider embedding
  5. 5. Findings and issues • Parallels between learning and “web 2.0” activities can be over-estimated • Deeply-held and un-reflected upon assumptions about learning and teaching • Issues don’t reside neatly in the technical, pedagogical, institutional or social domains • There are a lot of myths about the “netgen”
  6. 6. Findings and issues • Problems: top-down, technology-led, design- intensive • Paradox - you can’t be told to be radical • Attempts to innovate systematically encourage understanding but create challenges to implementation • “Strong” PLE - pedagogically desirable but requires shifts in many interconnected areas, technical, pedagogical, institutional, and social
  7. 7. One key message Context is king
