EdTechTalk: 21st Century Learning #35
A Conversation with June Ahn The Research Behind Learning and Teaching
March 6, 2007
This week we discussed learning and teaching with June Ahn, Ph.D student, focusing on Urban Education at USC.
We will be discussed learning and teaching and how educational research relates to the classroom. We spend a fair amount of time discussing Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talks presentation that asks whether we are educating our students to be college professors.
Terry Anderson, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Distance Education at Athabasca University dropped by tonight. We talked about distance ed, his time 'back on the land'. We talked about where education might be going... and we talked about athabasca's new EDD program starting (maybe) next year.. Besides being an all round big wig in education (see link above) Terry is involved in all kinds of educational projects, including an appearance at the upcomming Curverider conference. I had a great time.
