Podcast: Disrupting Ourselves: Cherished Assumptions, New Designs, and the Problem of Learning in Higher Ed

Our concept of learning has expanded at a rate far outpacing our notion of teaching, an issue that applies to the design and delivery of learning experiences. This presentation by Randy Bass, associate provost for Georgetown University, looks at how this asymmetry is being manifest as higher education reaches the limits of some cherished assumptions about educational design. Looking at a range of strategies from team design-which engages instructional technologists, librarians, and other academic staff-to e-portfolios-which shift the center away from the formal curriculum-the session explores how we might move beyond the limits of traditional practices in a time of constrained resources and increased accountability.
