Authenticity in learning online: Call for your thoughts or experiences!

March 23, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hi everyone,

Each year we have a one-day mini conference at UoE run by a staff group called the elearning forum.

This year’s conference is on 10 April, and the theme is on authenticity in online learning – more details here: https://www.wiki.ed.ac.uk/display/eLPP/Conference+2014+-+Authenticity+Online

see http://tweelearning.tumblr.com/

Stuart & Simon from the Learning Technology Section, live sketching at an elearning@ed conference – for more, see http://tweelearning.tumblr.com/

We would like to have your input too – would you like to contribute something to the conference?

Anything smallish like a short text statement, like a quote, of your own experience as an online learner, or something a bit bigger such as a recorded video statement, or even more, for example a poster about a project you are doing?

It would be fantastic if you wanted to send in your thoughts for the elearning forum – the forum is mostly made up of staff who teach on or develop and support online learning, and also research students.

Please email me soon if you’re interested in sending something and/or would like to have a chat about what shape a contribution could have – marshall.dozier@ed.ac.uk

We aren’t thinking of having streamed presentations, to keep the technical requirements as low as possible, but if you would like to follow along, we will be using the twitter hashtag #elearninged

Virtual “Open Day” for the MSc in Digital Education

March 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

The Programme will be joining in with one of the University-wide Open Day events on Wednesday the 26th March.  Details of what is planned are to be found on the Programme website.

Interested onlookers to this blog from outside the Programme student community should regard this as our invitation to you to join in on the day, if you have questions about studying with us.

We would ask all of you – student community and beyond – to help us publicise the day by Tweeting, or otherwise sharing, the URL of the announcement page.
