What Happens to Your body if you stop smoking Right now? Contributed byLiz Lewis I think one of the main reasons it’s so hard to quit smoking is because all the benefits of quitting and all the dangers of continuing seem very far away. Well, here’s a little timeline about some of the more immediate effects of quitting smoking and how that will affect your body RIGHT NOW. * In 20 minutes your blood pressure will drop back down to normal. * In 8 hours the carbon monoxide (a toxic gas) levels in your blood stream will drop by half, and oxygen levels will return to normal. * In 48 hours your chance of having a heart attack will have decreased.

Caledonian Academy The findings of the project can be summarised as follows: RQ1 How are MOOCs currently designed to support self-regulated learning?

Marshall Centre for Academic Development Victoria University of Wellington Wellington NEW ZEALAND Introduction Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have stimulated an international burst of activity examining the role technology plays in higher education (ACM Education Board / Council, 2013; Armstrong, 2012; Azevedo, 2012; Carr, 2012; Daniel, 2012; Feldstein, 2012; Kop, 2011; Siemens, 2012). The various magazine articles, publicity announcements, blog posts, and research papers, typified by the assertion that MOOCs "are the most important education technology in 200 years" (Regalado, 2012) are reminiscent of the millennial "global virtual university" hysteria (see, for example, Cunningham et al., 2000).

Who studies MOOCs? Interdisciplinarity in MOOC research and its changes over time George Veletsianos1 and Peter Shepherdson2 1Royal Roads University, Canada, 2University of Zurich, Switzerland Abstract The complexity of digital and online education is becoming increasingly evident in the context of research into networked learning/participation. Interdisciplinary research is often proposed as a way to address complex scientific problems and enable researchers to bring novel perspectives into a field other than their own. The degree to which research on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is interdisciplinary is unknown. We apply descriptive and inferential statistics to bibliometric data to investigate interdisciplinarity in MOOC research. A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy - A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy by TeachThought Staff The modern learner has to sift through a lot of information.

21st Century Assessment Assessment, in the form of examinations, has been a constant feature of education since the 18th Century. Some researchers indicate that the first printed examinations at school started in 1830 with the Sixth form at Harrow.[1, 2, 3]. For over 150 years, examinations have been our principal assessment tool and they are still important in 21st Century teaching and learning. The examination has a place in our arsenal of tools but is it the flag ship of assessment?

Innovative perspectives and approaches for enhancing the student experience : Melbourne CSHE Project abstract This project builds capacity of higher education institutions by developing new perspectives and approaches for enhancing the student experience. To effectively manage the student experience, institutions must understand who students are and what they expect from higher education. Students have changed in the 21st century and institutions need to understand and do different things to enhance their experience. Much current work has conceptual and technical limitations and is failing to deliver. This project steps ahead in both substantive and methodological ways.
