21L.430 Popular Narrative: Masterminds (MIT) 21L.430 Popular Narrative: Masterminds (MIT)

Description

Our purpose is to consider some of the most elaborate and thoughtful efforts to define and delineate "all-mastering," and to consider some of the delineations of "all-mastering the intellect" in various guises - from magicians to master spies to detectives to scientists (mad and otherwise). The major written work of the term will be an ongoing reading journal, which you will circulate to your classmates using an e-mail mailing list. The use of that list is fundamental - it is my intention to generate a sort of ongoing cyberconversation.

Description

"Creative activity (isn't) the icing on the cake. Human creativity is the cake." (Jerry Hirschberg) Creativity - "the mastery of information and skills in the service of dreams" (Hirschberg) - is much prized in the arts, science, business and the classroom. What does the creative process look like? Under what conditions does it flourish - what ignites the creative spark? Attempting to answer these questions, this class explores ways creativity has been understood in Western culture: what we prize and fear about creativity and its wellsprings; how writers, artists, scientists and inventors have described their own creative processes; how psychologists and philosophers have theorized it; ways in which creativity has been represented in Western culture, particularly "Creative activity (isn't) the icing on the cake.

Reading qualitative research

Description

This collaborative learning object (CLO) is designed to help students explore literature in their particular area of educational research. Specifically, it explores how to critically read short research studies initially through their first point of contact with such studies - the abstract. The module then goes on to look at how educational and social research reports are typically structured and how to read research critically and evaluate research findings. This resource was produced by a project at London South Bank University (LSBU) to create Open Educational Resources (OERs) funded by JISC and the HEA. It shares OERs created to support Level 7 courses in the areas of research methods, education for sustainability and creating such CLOs. The project wiki address is http://blockedoe
