One of the major highlights of the e-Strategy Town Hall this year was Richard Katz’ keynote (The Adaptive Academy) – with its memorable reference to the Agrarian Era — where educational opportunities were provided by “Roving Bands of Faculty Members” — chasing down and being chased by students in the European countryside.
I really do need to animate that image….
Richard has published an article where he expands upon the historical piece he covered with us, and applied it to the course management space, in his article in the latest Educause Review: Balancing Technology and Tradition: The Example of Course Management Systems.
A worthwhile read!
The entire volume (contents at http://www.educause.edu/pub/er/erm03/erm034.asp) is worth a look… Joel Foreman’s article, Next-Generation Educational Technology versus the Lecture, looks especially interesting!
Many things to read!
