‘Industry’ vs. ‘Academia’ II

17 Jun 2003 (Tue)

ONE THING THAT STRUCK ME as i progressed through the Teaching Online course was that i felt overwhelmed by the sheer number of papers listed upfront in the course. The exemplars for Assignment 1 helped a lot in clarifying expectations of what needs to be done. So did the tutors’ responsiveness to queries. However….

Looking back now, if i’m the instructor, i might re-design the course. M. and i put up a similar idea via simultaneous typing in a virtual chat last Wed. For an instant, we ’smiled’ in cyberspace at the meeting of our minds as M. wrote, “i think we are talking the same language”. Read the rest of this entry »

When the Cart is Before the Horse…

13 Jun 2003 (Fri)

One up for ‘Academia’!

Cart before the horse - from idiom-magic.com“ASSIGNMENT 2 is going to be a ‘piece of cake’!” i had thought last week, upon finding a high-level pedagogical report submitted in May 2001. However, confusion quickly set in as i tried to re-organise its contents in accordance with Steeples’ Pedagogical Framework.

Now, am i going to write from the perspective of an acad staff (which i am not) or from that of a facilitating ID centre (which i am part of)? Just which parts belong to (1) Philosophy, (2) High Level Pedagogy (HLP), (3) Strategies and (4) Tactics? Some parts, such as Constructivism and Problem-Based Learning, fit into (2) and (3) respectively like a glove. Certain parts seem to belong more to tactics than strategies.

‘Industry’ vs. ‘Academia’

11 Jun 2003 (Wed)

AH SO NE! i have been ‘misplaced’ in the Group Pages. Now i see that i belong more to ‘Industry’ than ‘Tertiary’ (’Academia’). Although our institutions are classified within the tertiary education category, our focus tends to be very industry-oriented.

This is getting clearer and clearer, especially after the video conferencing session that we had with G., S., et al, on one side (in Australia) and with our in-house Instructional Design (ID) program participants on our side (in Singapore) yesterday morning. Read the rest of this entry »

God, the Divine Teacher

10 Jun 2003 (Tue)

Teacher - Microsoft Office clipartA CONSOLATION: All was not lost, some ‘work’ did get done while i was at rest. During my four-day retreat in May, the thought ‘God, the Divine Teacher’ kept coming to mind. Even now, this still comes as i re-read Laurillard’s paper Teaching As Mediating Learning which i finished yesterday. As she put it, “…teaching is a rhetorical activity: it is mediated learning, allowing students to acquire knowledge of someone else’s way of experiencing the world.”

Each evening, in accordance with the Ignatian spiritual exercise, my spiritual director (SD) would give me four recommended passages to pray over four hours the next day. The thought came on the third day when my SD was listening very attentively to what i was telling him about my prayer experience — the thoughts and feelings that came to mind while meditating or contemplating over the scripture passages. As usual, he has asked a few strategic questions in the beginning and was about to recommend readings for the next day at the end. Read the rest of this entry »
