Disruptive Media Learning

“As participants, creators and stakeholders it is important that we capitalise on, rather than fear, the shift in power enabled by this technologically driven change”
NEWFOTOSCAPES - GRAIN and Library of Birmingham

How appropriate are walled and closed institutions for the digitally mediated world?
Arguably that the biggest disruption facing educators is not caused by the global economic crisis itself, or even the failure of vision of any particular government, but the one housed by the behemoth server farms and the global content producers of the Internet. We are in the midst of an educational system in which knowledge is being liberated from scarcity; previously the scholar’s role was to offer authoritative elucidation on the (rare and inaccessible) book to the privileged few. Today in the new ecology of ‘knowledge’ abundance, we have the potential to educate the masses – our problem is keeping up with and deciding what content to educate them about.

The Disruptive Media Learning Lab is designed as a cross-University experimental unit that will provide support for new and on-going pedagogic development in new and disruptive technological spaces. The Lab draws upon areas from which the University has established a track record of innovation, e.g, the Serious Games Institure, which has pioneered the use of games logics and Apps in educational content delivery and the Media Department’s teaching and learning ‘experiments’ with Open Media Classes (e.g Phonar, Picbod, Creative Activism and Digital Formations) and research/publication experiments, the Disruptive Media group; as well as the LIRG research, evaluation, experimentation and publication on the impact of virtual worlds on pedagogy and chatbots in higher education.

  26. 26. Disruptive Media or how I learned to stop worrying and love the Learning Lab • respond to external changes which we don’t control (push) • maximise enhanced capabilities, which we can direct (pull) • support learning experiments and projects in safe space • connect, collaborate and experiment #disrupt_learn
  27. 27. The 21st century academy Traditional educational/ publishing and media platforms (books) will not disappear. Nor will expertise or authority. What will change is that they will be valued differently #disrupt_learn

  46. 46. • How we can help explore what the 21st century university can be • What challenges and problems learning technologies we need to address • Where the core values of what we do lie? • How to use the capabilities of new media to magnify that value • How we can develop digitally ‘professional/fluent’ digital natives • What benefits can we develop from putting technologists, developers, librarians and Academics together • What new models/ways of working would be effective /disruptive for HE • How we can work on developing radically new pedagogies and radically new relationships with/offers to, our communities #disrupt_learn Thank you. QUESTIONS ?????? The kinds of things we hope to learn and share working in this way
