The definition of the so-called MOOCs, also referred to as a “disruptive educational innovation”, however, is not very precise and has led to some irritations and scepticism. Therefore, the ideas MOOCs rely on, will be described and the pedagogical and technological background will be explained by detailed descriptions of concrete examples. After setting the scene, the factors responsible for the initial hype about MOOCs will be analyzed as well as the upcoming criticism raised against the arguments of the MOOC proponents.

Crap Detection, A 21st Century Literacy

Though I think the need for critical thinking or analysis has been around a long time, it has become increasingly important as Alan Shapiro demonstrates in his article, The Essential Skill of Crap Detecting So how do you teach or learn this essential skill? Two librarians at Dominican University have put together this CRAP test The CRAP test is a way to evaluate a source based on the following criteria: Currency, Reliability, Authority and Purpose/Point of View.

Below are some questions to help you think about how to measure each of the criteria.Currency How recent is the information? Revista "Libros de la Corte" - IULCE. Questionnaire design. Perhaps the most important part of the survey process is the creation of questions that accurately measure the opinions, experiences and behaviors of the public.

Questionnaire design

Accurate random sampling and high response rates will be wasted if the information gathered is built on a shaky foundation of ambiguous or biased questions. Creating good measures involves both writing good questions and organizing them to form the questionnaire. Questionnaire design is a multistage process that requires attention to many details at once. Designing the questionnaire is complicated because surveys can ask about topics in varying degrees of detail, questions can be asked in different ways, and questions asked earlier in a survey may influence how people respond to later questions.

Revue par excellence de l'« intellectuel de gauche » des années 1950-1960, Les Temps modernes furent à la fois la revue de Sartre et le lieu d'expression privilégié d'un mouvement vite dominant dans la vie intellectuelle et littéraire d'alors : l'existentialisme. Dès le premier numéro, publié en octobre 1945 chez Gallimard, Sartre lance le thème-leitmotiv de ces années d'après guerre : la littérature engagée, avec cet avertissement (ou cette restriction) : « L'engagement ne doit, en aucun cas, faire oublier la littérature. » Puisqu'il fallait être « dans le coup », Les Temps modernes allaient donc être chaque mois de tous les coups, et ses rédacteurs des « chasseurs de sens », comme l'écrira Simone de Beauvoir.

Revue d'idées, Les Temps modernes s'engagent en effet complètement dans la lutte anticolonialiste, notamment celle contre la guerre d'Algérie en soutenant, à travers leur collaborateur Francis Jeanson, les réseaux d'aide au F.L.N., le Manifeste des 121...
