Fighting the good fight against jargon: here’s an extract from a note I sent to a colleague who was asking for help in clarifying our ‘e-pedagogy’ policies…
As I think I said in the last meeting, the ‘e’ fad in naming things
seems to me to have run its course, or almost, and ‘e-pedagogy’ just
sounds like the epitome of jargon (my apologies if you coined it!)
Something like ‘integration of ICTs in teaching’ might be less snazzy,
but it’s also less likely to sound dated next week.
Feel free to share particularly egregious examples of jargon – bonus marks for those beginning with a lowercase e, i or v. 😉
