Keynote

Effective pedagogy at scale - Social learning and citizen inquiry

Learning@Scale conference | Edinburgh, UK | 26th April 2016

For the past four years The Open University has tracked innovations in teaching, learning and assessment through our annual Innovating Pedagogy reports. They range from embodied learning to stealth assessment. Which of these are effective at scale, and why? I shall call on the Network Effect, theories of learning as conversation and collaborative inquiry, and practices of networked, connectivist and rhizomatic learning to explore the design of innovative pedagogies for massive scale. The talk will be illustrated with examples from learning through conversation and inquiry on the FutureLearn, iSpot and nQuire-it platforms.
