This week is the last week, and talking about putting blended learning into our own context. I was struck by the ways in which we can gather data for Osted, since that is always an issue. I like to hear student opinions, but I did notice that many of the students were technology, and young,… Read More Week Three: Blended Learning
Useful resources from this week: Good things foundation – this does seem to have a lot to it but I am doubtful that it is useful to me at this point. CILIP – library and information association – again, not directly useful at this point! Education and training foundation – this does have some really… Read More Week two: Blended Learning Essentials: embedding practice.
I found that the student perspective was interesting, in light of our current situation. The quizes seem to be popular, and the ability to revisit material when they need to. Being able to deliver the same course in a number of locations at the same standard seems of benefit. Using the technology to support students… Read More Week one: Blended Learning Essentials – embedding practice
This is a little more of a practical week, and starting off with the digital skills students need. I have been more than a little surprised at the lack of these skills in some of my students, I admit. The document above is quite a handy one – it provides a structure to the digital… Read More Week five: Blended Learning –

This course discussed an instructional design called DADDIE – this supposedly alerts them to think about specific aspects of implementation – accessibility, inclusivity and useability. DADDIE = define, analysis, design, develop, implement, evaluate.… Read More Week four: Blended Learning course
This is all about Virtual Learning Environments, digital tools and Open Educational Resources. I noticed that I am automatically doing some of the online things they are teaching without understanding the underpinning reasons – for example, I had directed people to forums for questions, so that the answers are seen, and other students can offer… Read More Week three: Virtual Learning Environments
I’ve now completed week two – a little belatedly due to taking a week’s annual leave and spending much of that sewing and gardening. I was particularly interested in the pedagogy underpinning the technologies. I am good with technology and pick it up swiftly but always wish for more underpinning literature and knowledge. I foundthat… Read More Week two: Technologies
So I have started the blended learning course. I’m also doing another about teaching online soon. This is timely since all teaching has gone online for our university. This is the course and I would recommend it just to get the materials even if you don’t do the actual course! It is quite easy to… Read More Week one: The Journey Begins
