Post-hoc accreditation strategies

Background; I will be discussing WikiQuals as part of the University Project at Hub Westminster this weekend (October 14/15/16). I will be working with Leane Brooks during her Saturday session on Saturday 2pm and then, if need be, give a more formal talk on Sunday. In the previous post I outlined the WikiQuals (negotiated) learning process and in this post I want to briefly outline the post-hoc accreditation process.

Three stage model; The 3 stages of wikiquals, based on the Emergent Learning model, are social organisation, resource discovery/creation, and post-hoc accreditation. As you can see this could also be described as stage three, becoming relevant after a social group has been created and a learning process negotiated. The reason I describe it as post-hoc is that it is not a (hidden) exam-based system of learning but a transparent process involving ‘Show and Tell’

Show and Tell; The idea of Show and Tell is that participants negotiate learning activities that they undertake in the real world, carry them out in the real world and document those activities online. Document it here, on their own web-resources, or on http://www.wikiquals.com. Show and Tell is inspired by the medieval guild notion of (and forgive the language here) Master, Journeyman and Apprentice. A process wherein an apprentice graduates when a journeyman (not the master) agrees that the work that they have shown and told about meets the appropriate standard. Following this Show and Tell process (something more than a Viva but not dissimilar) an apprentice becomes a journeyman.

Journeyman; We will be using volunteer journeymen and journeywomen (does that work) to both a) negotiate the learning process beforehand, like Ian Cunningham’s self-managed learning model, and to carry out the Show and Tell to wrap up the process. I have about six volunteer journeymen and journeywomen already, and I will be negotiating the process further at the University Project this weekend.

Comments Welcome; Please comment below, thanks @fredgarnett
