We have set up a moodle discussion forum for anyone who is currently working on their dissertation. The idea is that it will be a peer support forum where we can discuss ideas, get general advice, ask for feedback on questionaire design, post links to useful research etc etc. We hope that this will help dissertation students to connect to each other and to feel more part of the MSCel (or should that be MSCde) community. There will be no supervisors present, so for more technical questions contact your supervisor directly.
If you are currently doing your dissertation and would like to have access to the forum, plese e-mail Jen: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve not used moodle before – you can set up the options to automatically e-mail you when there is a new post, so you don’t need to keep checking for messages.
The dissertation group here on the hub will continue to run, and is open to anyone who is interested in or preparing for their dissertation.
I just wanted to draw attention, particularly for those who are new to the programme, to the different groups that exist on the Hub. All groups can be seen by clicking on the ‘group’ tab at the top of the page. In particular, I’d encourage everyone involved with, or interested in all aspects of science education, to join the Science education group– and for those of us just starting, or in the middle of the dissertation element, there is the dissertation stage group, a place to share ideas, worries and triumphs!
I’m looking for a copy of this book,
Critical design and effective tools for e-learning in higher education …
By Roisin Donnelly, Jen Harvey, Kevin O’Rourke
Particularly pages 117 and 118, which are in Chapter 7 : Games for Learning and Learning Trasnfer (the rest of the chapter is available on google books).
Does anyone own a copy?
I’ve created a new group for anyone involved with , or just interested in science education and technology.
Inspired by the discovery that three of us in the Games Based Learning course are Physicists – but ofcourse open to anyone from any science based discipline. I know at least one tutor would claim that includes psychology 🙂
