__Jim Groom faces ‘the tweet onslaught‘ from David Wiley Mike Caulfield

Apr 5

never used official OER, but strange to suggest because of that it’s not open pedagogy. Seems open eaten by definitions.

    This talk was presented at Coventry University as part of my visiting fellowship at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab

    Every year since 2010, I’ve undertaken a fairly massive project in which I’ve reviewed the previous twelve months’ education and technology news in order to write ten articles covering “the top ed-tech trends.” This is how I spend my November and December – researching and writing a series that usually tops out at about 75,000 words – which I didn’t realize until print copies were made for my visit here is about 240 pages.

    Now, all those words and pages make this quite a different undertaking than most year-in-review stories, than much of the “happy new year” clickbait that tend to offer a short, bulleted list of half a dozen or so technologies that are new enough or cool enough to hype with headlines like “these are the six tools poised to revolutionize education.” To be honest, these sorts of articles are partly why I undertake this project – although each year, when I’m about 15,000 words in, I do ask myself “why am I doing this?!” (This talk will hopefully serve as an explanation for you and a nice reminder for me.)

    __Pearson chief executive John Fallon total remuneration rose from £1.26m in 2015 to £1.5m last year, even as the educational publisher slumped to its biggest ever loss and its shares fell to a seven-year low. However the spokesman said the board was freezing the chief executive’s base pay for 2017, the second year running, and would cut his long-term performance-related share award to reflect Pearson’s lower long-term profit guidance. The Financial Times _ https://lnkd.in/ezvCiET _

    Pre-tax losses spiralled from £433m in 2015 to a record £2.6bn, including a £2.5bn [non-cash] write-off of goodwill dating back to Pearson’s acquisitions of US education business National Computer Services and the publisher Simon & Schuster at the turn of the century. Mr Fallon said that after a “challenging” year the company is looking ahead to operating profit of between £570m to £630m in 2017. _ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/02/24/pearson-sell-publishing-stake-losses-deepen/ _ 24 February 2017 Telegraph

    OEP and open pedagogy: #OEGlobal reflections
    by catherinecronin

    __#OEORangers @eCampusOntario #OEOSummit @BCcampus #OER __ Catherine Cronin, OEP Open Pedagogy, #OEGlobal _

    _ This post is a summary of some my reflections following the 3-day OE Global conference, particularly with respect to OEP and open pedagogy.

    OEP and open pedagogy

    For some time now I’ve been paying attention not just to the nature of the work being done by many in the global open education community, but also to differences in emphasis across different sectors and regions. For example, much foundational work in open textbooks is rooted in and continues in North America (e.g. BCcampus Open Textbook project and Z-Degree programmes). More recently, a flourishing movement has emerged around open pedagogy (check out #openped) led by innovative educators such as Robin deRosaKaren CangialosiScott RobisonRajiv JhangianiDavid Wiley, and others.
