OpenEd: Week 14

Greg talked about some issues about getting tenure in higher education. He indicated that “faculty will increasingly become more exclusive, wealthy and childless. These "virtues" will be taught to all new students who go through the education system and higher education will soon become even more of an ideological mass production factory than it already is.” The life for professors to get tenure is very struggling if the tenure is judged mainly based on publications or grants. It makes me think more about the academic life.

He also indicated that “Higher education becomes more open to change, allows more time for faculty publications and grants, gets more money, and tenure becomes open to more diverse values than just publications and grants. Teaching in higher education becomes more open to techniques besides lecture and powerpoint, allowing students to "trib" a lot more.” Yes, I agree with that open education will help the tenure and job problems. Listening to students and understanding their needs are more important than just delivering all the knowledge to them.

Jessie talked about what she thinks that the effect of open education on the education system of China. It is interesting to read her article about if open education can prevail over China. I learn the history of China, but as for what’s happening for education in China now, I might not know, and have never experiences the education there. From Jessie’s point of view, “she feels like it is too difficult to change the traditional system of higher education. We talked about words like democracy and open for years, but hard to move on.” Yes, I agree with what her points. Open education will probably be hard to move on if there are some factors intervened, such as politics, policy, etc. And I also agree that in Chinese culture, parents have much more control over their children, compared to America. Convince parents to accept the benefits from open education will be important, and usually they pay tuition for their children.

It is fun to read
Rob’s post. He had five predictions toward open education in the future. The first one is “we will have compatible versions of the GFDL and CC licenses by 2010,” second “as new collaboration and communication tools are created and distributed over the next 10-15 years, more virtual schools like WGU will pop up, and the jucos, tech schools, and for-profit institutions will embrace collaborative education methods.” Third “textbook industry will go away as we know it.” Fourth, “young professors will adopt new teaching methods that leverage student and alumni knowledge and information-gathering skills to develop their lesson plans, giving them more time to complete their research.” Fifth, “my children will not remember a time when you had to pay for long distance phone calls.” I am impressive those five predictions, and agree with what he said. It makes sense to me, and it shows us the possible life in future open education. The license issues of OER will be solved by make a policy which makes different license rules more compatible in some situations. The compatibility of licenses is very important because it happens when people want to gather different information or resources from various websites which are licensed differently. The textbook is an issue that happens now. As we know, people would not like to pay much for just textbooks. The textbook industry might be aware of this, and might discover some other tasks they can do in the future.
