If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance | Hybrid Pedagogy

Thesis #1: A course is a conversation, not a static reservoir or receptacle for content.

Thesis #2: Education cannot be compulsory. The work of learning starts with agency.

Thesis #3: Best practices are snake oil.

Thesis #4: Outcomes should give way to epiphanies.

Thesis #5: Learning should not be structured to conform to assessment mechanisms

Thesis #6: In education, we rise and fall together.

Twitter also sells your privacy. I rely pretty much on students who can answer the question, "My url is...." but many courses organize on twitter just to name a few.

@slamteacher @mcjsa @KrisGiere @Bali_Maha @edtechinsight Or do we need to cause some disruption and be empathetic to struggle?

My students demand rubricized and structured online learning modules. They want step by step walk-throughs of every task.

Is it more empathetic to build the learning space that gaurantees success or do we just provide support when students fall in the inevitable pits of non-linear learning?
