Improvement in post secondary education will require converting teaching from a solo sport to a community based research activity.Herb Simon
For all the talk lately of the "future of work," we don't talk enough about the future of work for educators. We have a growing shortage of well-trained instructional designers, course architects, accessibility experts, learning engineers, and similar specialists. This gap is only going to grow as improving student outcomes becomes increasingly critical to sustainability for colleges.
That's one reason why I'm pleased to announce an e-Literate Standard of Proof webinar on iDesign's LX Pathways program, a new competency-based digital curriculum for professionals looking to develop these skills. iDesign created them, in part, to help with their own employee recruitment challenges as the company grows. This is a great resource for the sector, which was developed by iDesign, made available free or cheap—depending on which option you take and how far you go with it—to anyone, and tested with Harvard School of Education graduate students.
Come hear iDesign Chief Learning Officer Whitney Kilgore and Patrice Torcivia Prusko, the Associate Director of Learning Design at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education Teaching and Learning Lab talk with me about LX Pathways.
The webinar is on Thursday, February 20th, at 2 PM ET.
