New Learning: Principles and Patterns of Pedagogy (Coursera)
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. What changes are afoot today in workplaces, civic life and everyday community life? What are their implications for education? What are the possible impacts of contemporary social transformations on teaching and learning - including in the areas of technology, media, globalization, diversity, changing forms of work in the “knowledge society”, and, in these contexts, changing learner needs and sensibilities? This course explores three pedagogical paradigms: “didactic”, “authentic” and “transformative” learning.

Syllabus


WEEK 1

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.


WEEK 2

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.


WEEK 3

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.


WEEK 4

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?
