Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

The burden of inclusivity lies with all staff, by curriculum design, and it should not be left to students to adapt. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an educational framework based on research in the learning sciences, including cognitive neuroscience, that guides the development of flexible learning environments that can accommodate individual learning differences. (Rose & Meyer, 2002) UDL is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. E-inclusion - Netzwerk Digitale Inklusion Schweiz.

Data Report 2013-2015: Informal Learners – OER Hub

In the two years that followed, a number of bespoke surveys were designed and administered in collaboration with the Flipped Learning Network, Vital Signs, the Community Colleges Consortium for Open Educational Resources, OpenLearn, Saylor Academy, OpenStax, BCcampus, Siyavula, School of Open-P2PU and CoPILOT. Responses from each survey were then combined into a larger dataset to allow for comparison and in-depth examination. The final dataset is comprised of 7,498 cases –44.4% informal learners, 28.4% formal learners, 24.3% educators and 2.9% librarians.

The current report, first in a series of three, presents a frequencies analysis of responses from informal learners, i.e. those learners not registered on a course of study at an educational institution.

Learn.Unlearn.Relearn.: April 2015. From when I was young, I remember a conversation between my Dad and my Uncle Keith.

Learn.Unlearn.Relearn.: April 2015

Uncle Keith worked for the navy in a job which involved the use of computers in their early form. Dad was pointing out how easy these computers must make it for Keith to do his job these days, and in response Keith just sighed and shook his head sadly, "Naaaa, not really, all that happens now is that I'm given even more to do, and expected to do it better and faster. " This is the crux of my 'content explosion theory'. In my day at school, producing a project of some sort would require quite a bit of handwriting, drawing, colouring, cutting and sticking. Spring forward to my internet, iPad and 1 to 1 enabled classroom and it doesn't quite work like that anymore. Untitled.

Updated: What is group work? While many practitioners may describe what they do as ‘groupwork’, they often have only a limited appreciation of what groupwork is and what it entails.

Lisa Marie Blaschke Oldenburg University and University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Abstract Heutagogy, a form of self-determined learning with practices and principles rooted in andragogy, has recently resurfaced as a learning approach after a decade of limited attention.

Heutagogy and lifelong learning: A review of heutagogical practice and self-determined learning

In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability with the goal of producing learners who are well-prepared for the complexities of today’s workplace. The approach has been proposed as a theory for applying to emerging technologies in distance education and for guiding distance education practice and the ways in which distance educators develop and deliver instruction using newer technologies such as social media. The renewed interest in heutagogy is partially due to the ubiquitousness of Web 2.0, and the affordances provided by the technology. Introduction Research Method Conclusion. Ermöglichungsdidaktik.

Aus- und Weiterbildung: Wissen wird wichtiger - NZZ Unternehmen. Banken müssen mehr tun, um ihre Kunden zufriedenzustellen. Der Übergang zu einer Weissgeldstrategie, die Flut an regulatorischen Vorgaben, die Digitalisierung des Bankgeschäfts, das Niedrigzinsumfeld – nur wer echte Performance generiert und qualitativ hochstehende Dienstleistungen anbieten kann, hat als Bank Aussicht auf längerfristigen Erfolg.

Nicht ohne die richtige Kultur. Writing for Europe - Guide for Adult Educators. In a knowledge economy corporate learning is necessary to survive. If you were an employee on Henry Ford’s assembly line in Detroit in the 1920s, you received a high degree of training and preparation before you ever set foot in the factory. You learned what your role was, and were given all the tools you needed to accomplish your job from Day One. From then on, your role never changed—you did your part to move a product forward along the assembly line, from the day you began until the day you retired, 40 or 50 years later.

Since those days, the business world has transformed — everything that can be automated has been automated. The fourth industrial revolution is upon us, with the forces of AI, robotics, and 3D printing disrupting the status quo and pushing outdated processes into oblivion. The Ford factory workers’ jobs have largely been turned over to machines. But the workforce training process hasn’t kept up with the pace of change. The pace of change is surpassing enterprises’ ability to keep up. The grim result?
