The missing link: Converging Neoliberalism and the OpenCourseWare Movement

  1. 1. The missing link: Converging Neoliberalism and the OpenCourseWare Movement Markus Deimann & Martijn Ouwehand http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/71/ Human_pidegree.jpg The term "missing link" refers back to the originally static pre-evolutionary concept of the great chain of being, the idea that all existence is linked, from the lowest dirt, through the living kingdoms to angels and finally to God. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transitional_fossil#Missing_links)
  2. 2. Agenda Introduction: Who are we? Definition of Discourse (Foucault) Neoliberal Discourse in Education Counter-discourse: OCW The Missing Link: What can we learn from each other?
  3. 3. What is a discourse? …a culturally constructed representation of social reality, not an exact copy („The Order of Things“) …construct knowledge and thus governs, through the production of truth what it is possible to talk about and what is not discourse defines subjects framing and positioning who it is possible to be and what it is possible to do http://www.myexistenz.com/raisondetre/foucalt.jpg
  4. 4. Neoliberal discourse in education Education as the leverage for a bright and optimistic future Notion of response to threats (Sputnik, Star Wars, PISA): Education symbolizes the need to catch up Reconstruction of public sectors: Enterprise culture (Peters) or corporate culture (Giroux) mission to produce research, skills and attitudes required to compete in the global economy Meta-Narrative based on „excellence“, „digital literacy“, „performance“, and „enterprise“
  5. 5. Changing Perspectives http://holdonyoulostme.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/cs-cartoon.gif Shift from civic liberty to market liberty (from exchange to competition) Production of the learner as a customer and Homo Economics Moral regulation (care for the self) Responsibilising the Self (Peters, 2001) http://blog.mcfit.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/mcfit-fitnessstudio-neumuenster-laufband.jpg
  6. 6. MOOCs as the prototype of neoliberal education Private-Public Partnerships: Public sector is being privatized unbundling education because it is more efficient and productive Reversal of responsibility for success and failure (school —> learner) https://s3.amazonaws.com/audreywatters/moocsters.jpg
  7. 7. ProctorU - Outsourcing cost- intensive service to the market http://vimeo.com/75513179
  8. 8. For every problem, there is a solution
  9. 9. The Counter Discourse OpenCourseWare

  11. 11. The Power of the Discourse Care of the Self vs. Sharing is Caring ! What can we learn from each other? A brief disputation How far would you go with sharing? Is it really rational to share?
