We Are All The Pretender Now: Learning In an Age of Just-in-Time Instruction

Written on March 3, 2010 by Martha Burtis | Posted in Guest Presenter,Plenary Presentation,Program Item

Plenary Presentation

Mike Caulfield, Keene State College

People with no IT background installing complicated computer systems in a single afternoon. Amateur chess players beating both grandmasters and supercomputers using off the shelf software. Your spouse cooking a meal like a master chef — without any formal training. Coworkers communicating to someone across the world in a language they are just encountering for the first time.
This is not science fiction — it is the average person’s life today, in 2010. Just-in-time instruction is the hidden revolution that has already radically changed how we live. This presentation will demonstrate how pervasive these modes of instruction have become and discuss the implications for university education, and well as introduce some practical classroom applications of just-in-time approaches.
