One reason for lecturers not responding to their everyday experience is, I believe, their ignorance of alternatives. If you can’t imagine what else you might do than lecture, then it hardly matters what your everyday experience is telling you. Lecturing is taken for granted. Courses are designed around lecture topics. Knowledge is packaged in our heads in one-hour-lecture-sized chunks. Why is this?
Not about mobile learning, but even when we start to design an online course we tend to think in terms of lecture-type input first, even though the input may be some kind of online reading material, or (quite commonly) a video of a lecture. The ideas here are pertinent, therefore, in the preparation for syllabus design both for face to face and online.
