Current students should have received an email from me about course choices for next semester. Let me know if this didn’t arrive; it was sent to your student email address. You can sign up for your course following the link to the Course Enrolment form to the left of your screen. Below is a little more information on each course option.
Course design for digital environments – this is a popular option and sometimes has more applications than places. It is already filling up!
Digital futures – this year, the course has been linked to an innovative project at the University of Edinburgh, Near Future Teaching. It will be open access. Jen has updated the description on the website – see http://digital.education.ed.ac.uk/course/digital-futures-learning
Learning analytics: process and theory – this will be run in conjunction with Teachers College, University of Columbia, a great opportunity for collaboration.
Research methods – this will involve participation in a MOOC called Introduction to Methods for Social Research. You can sign up for this MOOC at any time; however, when you take the Research methods course you will receive ‘scaffolded’ support as well as the assignments for credit.
Wider themes in digital education – this is our student-driven course that can be taken at any time, allowing you to build up a portfolio at a time and pace that suits you. You can sign up for this once you have completed 60 credits.
Spreading the word…
We are currently advertising the programme for new intakes in September and January. If you know anyone who’s interested in joining in September, it would be a good idea to get applications in over the next few weeks, and certainly by the end of May. Do retweet us when we tell the world about our programme!
