Building Creative Mindsets: Singing or Dumping It Down a Pipe?

Editor's Notes

  1. Building Creative Mindsets: Singing or Dumping it Down a Pipe?
  2. Professor Mark Brown, Dublin City University
  3. A lot of online education is shite! Right now we risk a serious backsplash against the "great onlining of the 21st Century".
  4. The uncomfortable truth is all we have done in a crisis is graft old 19th Century teaching methods onto new 21st Century networks. By analogy we’re guilty of dumping large volumes of undigested information down a large digital diameter pipe to relatively passive and powerless learners.
  5. This old pump, pump, DUMP model of teaching is the “dirty” little secret of online education when done poorly.
  6. Garbage in, garbage out, with no transformative advantage.
  7. But there are leaks in the system. Not everyone is adopting this crude one-size fits all pipe approach. Indeed, alternative pipes are being used to promote different thinking and cultural ways of knowing.
  8. Down under the Putatara has a special place in Maori culture.
  9. Of course, many of you will be familiar with sound of the didgeridoo. A very unusual pipe with a distinctive sound!
  10. The Irish have their own unique pipes for telling Celtic stories of oppression and liberation.
  11. What these creative examples illustrate is that music can be a powerful force for telling different stories, which can change the world because it can change people.
  12. Despite the predominance of “one pipe” thinking you need to keep singing your own song. Good educators maintain their own voice. Their presence matters! They can play the same instruments in very different ways and are not just educational factory workers pumping the curriculum down a pipe.
  13. Except, I’m not so sure about Martin Weller’s taste in music. His choice of song might be better served by accepting the lyrics of Split Endz since we all know that no that one takes him seriously.
  14. In the case of Tony Bates, one song continues to embody his enduring voice and the essence of his work. That is, “forever young” by Rod Stewart.
  15. As many of us know, Gasta Master Tom is truly unique.
  16. And his song is vividly encapsulated in “One Vision” by Queen.
  17. More seriously, the songs of these three “white men” demonstrate that creative mindsets matter most in shaping transformative online practices. Put simply, if we want to develop critical, innovative and highly imaginative students, then we need critical, innovative and highly imaginative educators.
  18. Actually, institutional culture matters a lot too. It enables or constrains the art of the possible.
  19. Culture eats strategy for breakfast.
  20. Is this just a one-eye wonder? Beyond Covid-19 will we have the courage to challenge face-to-face teaching as the gold standard?
  21. Will the digital leakage over recent weeks lead to a seismic cultural shift in funding models, teaching workload formula and contact hours which privilege on-campus, in-class teaching?
  22. While our future will be different the lesson from MOOCs suggests institutions will respond differently. But right now there is still only one song playing in education…
  23. Shock to the System by Billy Idol…
  24. Are you willing to dream?
  25. Are you ready to be a future-maker?
  26. In the face of adversity, in my own case one song continues to stand out as a beacon for uncertain times. This is my song and I hope you will join me on the bright side to make a better future.
