Mendeley and Rhizomes
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Apr 13, 2012
If you look at my participation in Change11 you might notice that it tails off just right around the time that the word rhizome is mentioned for the first time. Is this a coincidence? I’ve known of the concept of Rhizomatic Learning since his Innovate article back in 2008 but it was always on the periphery [...] Fri, 13 Apr 2012 10:58:26 +0000 [Comment]

Self Regulated Learning in MOOCs: study update
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Mar 21, 2012
I thought it would be useful to give an update on the research study we are conducting alongside the change11 mooc. The study was intially announced last December, and is summarised as follows: This study aims to surface, describe and systematise the activities and strategies that adult learners use to self-regulate their learning in the [...] Wed, 21 Mar 2012 14:18:32 +0000 [Comment]

Research Study: Self-regulated learning in massive open online courses
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Dec 07, 2011
Massive Open Online Courses are still very new and it is important to conduct research to try to understand how they support different types of learning. At the Caledonian Academy, we are interested in Self-regulated learning outside formal learning contexts and we have designed a study, which aims to surface, describe and systematise the activities [...] Wed, 07 Dec 2011 15:26:56 +0000 [Comment]

Social Artists … ends up being about mooc design #change11 #socialartist
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Nov 02, 2011
Finally caught up with the MOOC. Well not quite: I didn’t catch Nancy White’s presentation live, but looked at it, and the DTLT event as recordings. Nancy‘s presentation was hyper-interactive, with dozens of participants contributing via the whiteboard (usually all at once) … as such it was a bit frustrating to follow as a recording.

More OER #change11
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Nov 01, 2011
Last week in the Mooc, Rory McGreal returned to the topic of Open Educational Resources again, in his capacity as UNESCO/COL Chair in Open Educational Resources. Like David Wiley, he is an advocate of OER and has been involved in the development of OER guidelines for Higher education which will be available from his blog at https://landing.athabascau.ca/pg/blog/owner/rory from [...] Tue, 01 Nov 2011 10:15:41 +0000 [Comment]

Technology and Learning: #change11
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Oct 31, 2011
On to Tony Bates’ week at the Change MOOC — almost catching up! Tony’s topic is ‘Managing Technology to Transform Teaching’ It’s not really an area that concerns me much now that I am working more explicitly as a researcher of workplace and informal learning. But I have worked for many years in HE contexts [...] Mon, 31 Oct 2011 15:59:28 +0000 [Comment]

Reusability Paradox etc. change11
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Oct 27, 2011
I’m falling seriously behind with the change mooc for  a number of reasons. Whilst I am mindful that i shall get most out of the course if I follow in real-time, I dont want to kjust skip the few weeks that fell by the wayside, especially as they touch on topics close to my own [...] Thu, 27 Oct 2011 15:00:56 +0000 [Comment]

Week 4 Mooc: more reflection and synthesis #change11
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Oct 13, 2011
Here are some more posts which caught my eye from last week, along with any comments I have made (fewer comments as a proportion today). As this and the previous post were about me responding to other people’s ideas, I thought it most appropriate to comment on their blog pages, and provide links to their [...] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 14:57:27 +0000 [Comment]

Mooc Week 4. Synthesis and reflection.
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Oct 12, 2011
I have been trying to collect together posts which responded to our collective learning work which has been showcased in the mooc last week.  Here are some interesting posts I found: http://markusmind.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/struggle-to-progress/ (commented) http://brainysmurf1234.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/could-i-have-my-sandbox-back-please/ http://idstuff.blogspot.com/2011/10/do-we-need-to-know-one-another-when.html (commented) http://brainysmurf1234.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/the-5-cs-...

I’m a digital scholar, I hope
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Oct 03, 2011
So, another week in the Change MOOC. Lack of audio at the time meant I listened in to the live session asynchronously but the fuzemeeting replay allows you to follow the chat etc so a good experience. Martin Weller ran last week, based largely around his book which I am currently reading on the train, [...] Mon, 03 Oct 2011 09:56:32 +0000 [Comment]

Change Week 2
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Sept 22, 2011
Zoraini Wati Abas presented on the topic of Mobile Learning at the OU Malaysia yesterday: (http://change.mooc.ca/cgi-bin/page.cgi?post=60 ). Now there is an inherent problem with these presentations as they coincide with me picking up the wee lad from nursery and making his tea. The recording and slides of the talk aren’t up yet, but now is [...] Thu, 22 Sep 2011 11:49:20 +0000 [Comment]

Colin, Learning in the workplace, Sept 20, 2011
We think a lot about goals here – for a number of reasons. As part of the change11 orientation week (behind already – my excuse, a long weekend), it is suggested that we take a moment to reflect on our goals and expectations for the course. Well that’s simple enough. My goals (not measurable, that’s [...] Tue, 20 Sep 2011 16:29:36 +0000 [Comment]

Change, Change, Change
Colin, Learning in the workplace, Sept 16, 2011
Today (this week) marks the start of the latest MOOC organised by George Siemens, Dave Cormier and Stephen Downes. This one is entitled ‘Change: Education, Learning and Technology‘ and brings together leading researchers to discuss their work in this domain. Allison Littlejohn is leading ‘Week 3: Collective Learning’, and we are now starting to think [...] Mon, 12 Sep 2011 11:00:50 +0000 [Comment]
