  • This is a lovely presentation. Rightly in the slide before last (Slide 84), David you say Innovate for the Students. Surely, this is a way of gaining their trust. Have you examples of such innovations (or creations, if not applied yet?). Thank you for responding

  • We are certainly on the right way. Using the 6 characteristics it appears nonetheless that current ‘open’ courses do not effectively orchestrate the points ‘connected’, ‘personal’ and ‘creating’ – and this is something we now might want to focus on. There are still to many things ‘lost’, no ‘continuity’, and students still have to start ‘from scratch’ – using the web as an example shows that the informal virtual learning space works different, and finding way to leverage this into our courses would be clearly desirable.

Openness and the Disaggregated Future of Higher Education Openness and the Disaggregated Future of Higher Education Presentation Transcript

  • Openness and the Disaggregated Future of Education David Wiley, PhD Department of Instructional Psychology & Technology Brigham Young University
  • This Is Your 11:20 Wake-up Call Your institution will be irrelevant by 2020
  •  
  •  
  • “ The World is Changed” Galadriel, Lord of the Rings
  • It’s Actually Worse (or Better) The World is Changing
  • Analog  Digital Music, Phones, TV, Newspapers, Movies, Journals, Communications, Intelligence, Defense
  • Tethered  Mobile Phones, Internet Access, Employment
  • Isolated  Connected People, Content, Systems
  • Generic  Personal Cars, Computers, Mobile Phones
  • Consuming  Creating Radio / Podcasting, Newspapers / Blogs Movies / Vodcasting
  • Closed  Open Software (OSs, Applications), Data (Weather, GIS), Content (Blogs, Wikis)
  • Then vs Now Analog  Digital Tethered  Mobile Isolated  Connected Generic  Personal Consumption  Creating Closed  Open
  • Education vs Everyday Analog  Digital Tethered  Mobile Isolated  Connected Generic  Personal Consumption  Creating Closed  Open
  • “ Daily Divide” Is a Huge Threat And the wider the disconnect, the bigger the threat to higher education
  • But Wait! We’re Education! Our historic monopoly is (gratefully) being challenged on almost every front
  • Why Do Students Come? Content, Support Services Social Life, Degrees
  • Content OpenCourseWares, Wikipedia, Public Library of Science, Arxiv.org, Google Scholar, Flat World Knowledge, etc.
  • Support Services ChaCha, Yahoo! Answers, RateMyProfessor, Email, Instant Messaging, Twitter, etc.
  • Social Life Facebook, MySpace, MMOG, iPhone location-aware apps, etc.
  • Degrees MCSE, RHCE, CCNA
  • The Monopoly Is Being Busted Everything we provide is now offered by someone else
  • When Institutions Specialize They usually provide better quality at a better price
  • Higher Ed, On the Other Hand 76% increase in cost over 10 years How’s our quality?
  •  
  • Industries Failing Everywhere Banks, Insurance, Automobiles Higher Education?
  • A Bail Out for Higher Ed? Utah 4% cut, Pennsylvania 5 % cut, Massachusetts 5 % cut, Virginia 7 % cut
  • No Monopoly and No Bail Out How can we innovate to stay relevant?
  • What About E-learning?
  • What About E-learning? Quite innovative in 1995!
  • Characteristics of E-learning Analog or Digital Tethered or Mobile Isolated or Connected Generic or Personal Consuming or Creating Closed or Open
  • We’ve Only Changed the Channel Our pedagogy and philosophy are as just as they’ve always been
  • The Polo Parable A story about our move to online teaching and learning
  • Photo by e.dward
  • Photo by Christopher Henning
  • We’re Swimming on Horseback And rather proud of ourselves, I must say
  • Online is a Different Place The goals of teaching are the same, but the culture and rules in that space are only sort of the same
  •  
  • We’re Celebrating the Mass in Latin And our students are expecting charismatic worship with guitars, drums, and “Amen!”s
  • It’s About Respect Its about valuing culture and designing for it just as we would if teaching in Bangalore, Beijing, or Barcelona
  • Some Say Learning Has Changed Digital natives or millennials have brains that function differently
  • It’s About ATIs In the “aptitude by treatment interaction” literature, the only individual difference that matters is prior knowledge
  • Openness is the Cornerstone Openness underpins everything interesting happening online and is “what they know”
  • Why Make Such a Claim? Let’s ask Alexa what the 50 most popular sites on the web are…
  • Sites Where Anyone Can: Share a video, share a photo, share a blog post, share their personal info, share their ratings, share their files, share their expertise
  • Characteristics of E-learning Analog or Digital Tethered or Mobile Isolated or Connected Generic or Personal Consumption or Creating Closed or Open
  • Connecting You can’t connect to something if you don’t have access to it
  • Personalizing You can’t adapt or localize something if you don’t have the rights to modify it
  • Creating You won’t be creative if there’s no outlet for your work
  • How Might We Open Things? Higher Ed needs to figure this out
  •  
  •  
  • Materials Intended for Teachers Teachers only account for 15% of users
  • Lecture Notes Courses Around $15k per course
  • Video-based Courses Around $30k per course
  • “ Open 1.0” Hundreds of universities around the globe sharing over 6,000 courses (Will you show up on Google?)
  • Surely There Are Other Ways? Sharing some experiments
  • Connecting and Openness Sharing some experiments
  •  
  •  
  • Personalizing and Openness Sharing some experiments
  •  
  • Creating and Openness Sharing some experiments
  •  
  •  
  • Being Even More Open Sharing some experiments
  •  
  •  
  • Character Classes
    • Bard (Master of the lore, history, and politics of the field, know what's “out there”)
    • Artisan (Has materials production skills in all the necessary Web 1.0 and 2.0 tools like HTML, video sharing, podcasting)
    • Monk (Master of copyright and licensing arcana and defender of the university brand)
    • Merchant (Deals with short- and long-term sustainability issues)
  • Education Will Eventually Be Open And involve connecting, personalizing, and creating - just like everything else does
  • Will Higher Education Be Open? Can your school find the institutional will to change?
  • Institutional Disaggregation MIT OpenCourseWare, Western Governors University
  • Value of Integration? As compared to “specialized pieces loosely joined”
  • Not a Technology Problem Look around the Internet – not only do the technologies we need exist, they’re open source
  • This Is a Policy Problem Higher education is behaving like the recording and movie industries
  • Policy To Defend Tradition Rather than innovating
  • You Must Engage in Policy Reform Ignoring the growing problem is not a strategy
  • “ It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” W. E. Deming
  •  
  • “ You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” Buckminster Fuller
  • Student Learning May Suffer The market will likely meet students’ increasingly unmet needs
  • Your Employment Will Suffer When your institution collapses as Googlers find better alternatives
  • “ The last temptation is the greatest treason, To do the right deed for the wrong reason.” Archbishop Thomas Beckett (T. S. Eliot)
  • Innovate for the Students To fulfill your sacred trust as a teacher
  • Thank You! [email_address] http://davidwiley.org/
