Centre for the Study of Education and Work @ OISE

[I just found the following reference to me and some of my work at good 'ol OISE.]

Centre for the Study of Education and Work | Research | OISE/UT

For further reading at this stage, on the topic of contemporary approaches to education/research, we recommend you read: ĺ─˙Over Schooled and Under Educatedĺ─¨ an essay by OISE/UT PhD, Jason Nolan.

Sample: ĺ─˙The successful online learner is characterized as willing to embark on "a voyage of discovery through the world of knowledge" (Harasim, et al., 1995, p. 193). This description is problematic on a number of points, but it does reflect an attitude that should be important in all learning, especially when it is accompanied by a critical awareness of the politics involved with whose knowledge is being considered and for what purpose.ĺ─¨ http://jasonnolan.net/papers/comp2.html

That's October's lesson. Hope to see you at one of our events!

That's interesting to hear.. It is great that something I wrote 9 years ago is still interesting people.

great read: just finished it.

alot of what you write about applies to medicine and the idea of clinical sousveillance. when persons are involved in the decision process, one gets better compliance and better outcomes. there is more trust between doc and patient when it works within the learning model.

Unfortunately, so much influence by the drug companies gets in the way of true dialog: everyone is on more and more medicines, and the emphasis is no longer on "healing" but rather, "perscribing".

people do not always make the right decisions for themselves, but they mostly do when they have the facts: but sometimes, i wonder if they could sample the doctors lifeglog from which one forms opinions and judgements about how to perscribe. If patients knew what i knew, for example, then they would have achieved a hacking into the doctors glog without ruining the privacy of all the persons that are part of the prosthetic memory.
