Community-based Learning blog is a collaboration among the authors (l to r. Theron DesRosier, Jayme Jacobson, Nils Peterson). We may singly author or co-author and agree to disagree in public, either here or in our own spaces.
This blog will attempt to emulate what we think we’ve learned from George Hotz, how to be a node in a learning community working on a problem. We view this space as one element in our Learning Portfolio, and will link to other portions of our portfolio among systems we host and world systems we have adopted. From time to time we anticipate writing reflections on our use of this space and on our changing understanding of portfolios for learning.
We are committed to the advancement of authentic learning—learning that takes place in and beyond the classroom; that encourages the exchange of knowledge across disciplinary, institutional, and national boundaries; and that recognizes the need for participation in the global dialogue.
The problems that we are exploring include:
- Learning portfolios (ePortfolios)
- Assessment Communities and community assessment
- Identification of (and learning about) global competencies
We welcome your thoughtful comments and trackbacks to enlarge our community of practice and reflection of the transitions facing education as the world moves from an era of information scarcity to abundance and simultaneously greatly expands the populations that need to benefit from advanced learning.
