About the Course

This course sets out to provide an understanding of theories of learning and development and how these theories relate to educational technology. It has two components. The first is theoretical, in which we attempt to develop an overall frame of reference, locating approaches to the psychology of learning in terms of large paradigm shifts, from ‘behaviorism’ to ‘brain developmentalism’ to ‘social cognitivism’. The second component is practical, in which we will use these theoretical concepts to ‘parse’ a technology-mediated learning environment for its underlying presuppositions. -------------------------------- Recommended Background -------------------------------- This course is designed for people interested in the future of education and the "learning society," including people who may wish to join education as a profession, practicing teachers interested in exploring future directions for a vocation that is currently undergoing transformation, and community and workplace leaders who regard their mission to be in part "educative." -------------------------------- Related Resources -------------------------------- This course is based on the following book: https://www.amazon.com/New-Learning-Mary-Kalantzis-ebook/dp/B0096R1FUM Additional online resources are available here: https://newlearningonline.com/new-learning -------------------------------- Take this Course for Credit at the University of Illinois -------------------------------- This course has the same content and anticipates the same level of contribution by students in the New Learning course offered to graduate certificate, masters, and doctoral level students in the Learning Design and Leadership Program in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. Of course, in the nature of MOOCs many people will just want to view the videos and casually join some of the discussions. Some people say that these limited kinds of participation offer evidence that MOOCs suffer from low retention rates. Far from it – we say that any level of engagement is good engagement. On the other hand, if you would like to take this course for credit at the University of Illinois, you will find more information about our program here: https://newlearningonline.com/kalantzis-and-cope/learning-design-and-leadership-program And you can apply here: https://education.illinois.edu/epol/programs-degrees/ldl -------------------------------- The Learning Design and Leadership Series of MOOCs -------------------------------- This course is one of a series of eight MOOCs created by Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis for the Learning Design and Leadership program at the University of Illinois.

Some of the information was quite interesting, and some of the presenters did a very good job presenting information and sharing the results of researches, but some lectures (for example about student development) were hard to follow, even if the information was of value, it wasn't conveyed very well. Another point it that course seems to be inconsistent, the choice of topics isn't justified, even though the information is interesting, you don't get a clear coherent overview of the subject.

I found it rather hard to follow the speaker / professors in the course. The slides shown contain very much content and for me that seems not very useful. Furthermore sometimes they seem just to read down the slides... For me there are better learning alternatives as this course was not very appealing.

The course content is good, but the fact that I am the only current learner (it seems I am alone) make the motivation trully hard. I keep redefining my deadlines so I can accomplish the peer reviewed tasks, and the weeks pass and no one reads it. I am kind of frustrated with this course, since my expectations were high due to the proposition and the quality of the institution.

I have done different courses on Coursera but this course has worst management as peer assignment is not monitored by anyone in Coursera and people are just putting random assessment which has no like to learning outcome of this course and due to least attendees, you have to access and tolerate circus. My advice would be to attend the courses which have a good number of participants and better grading to attend to the pool of mindful people.

Dr Kalantzis talks as though she were reading the content on the teleprompter for the first time. A jerky, stuttering delivery that distracts significantly from the content. Unenrolling.
