New Learning: Principles and Patterns of Pedagogy

Por: Coursera . en: , ,

  • Module 1: Course Orientation
    • Education is in a state of flux – transitioning from traditional architectures and practices to new ecologies of teaching and learning influenced by the tremendous social and technological changes of our times. This course explores three pedagogical paradigms: “didactic,” “authentic,” and “transformative” learning. It takes a historical perspective in order to define the contemporary dimensions of what we term “new learning.” It prepares participants to make purposeful choices and link particular theories/instructional approaches to individual and group learning goals.
  • Module 2: What is New Learning?
    • This module explores some of the key terms of education: formal versus informal learning; and the distinctions that might be made between the terms "education," "curriculum," and "pedagogy." It also addresses the question of the differences between education as an art and a science.
  • Module 3: Didactic and Authentic education
    • In this module, course participants analyze two foundational paradigms of modern education, which we term "didactic" and "authentic" approaches.
  • Module 4: Transformative Education - New Learning
    • In the final module of this course, we will be considering prospects for the future of education, imaging a "new learning" based on a repertoire of moves drawn from the didactic and authentic pedagogies. What does transformative education mean, in theory as well as in practice?
