PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY via and about E-LEARNING

 

If you feel you would like to explore e-learning generally, and the role of podcasting in relation to it, then you may be interested in taking a short training course which gives you at the same time the vital experience of being an e-learner yourself. It is for teachers, librarians, technical staff, managers and administrators and any others who seek to extend their professional scope.

 

It is Online Education & Training, which is run online by the Institute of Education of London University. You'll find it a forum for rich structured collaborative learning with UK other educators. The course deals with e-learning in terms of a simple pedagogy framework that incorporates many styles of learning, e.g. resource-based, problem-based, discovery-based in addition to traditional and blended learning approaches.

 

It covers general issues of teaching online including social networking,with regular practical tasks, and has a choice of optional topics on using the internet to enhance internet teaching. These are expected to include

 

- online discourse and moderating

- computer-based assessment

- mobile technologies

- real-time teaching by phone, text, video-conferencing, or SecondLife

- blogging and podcasting

 

The next start is 9th March 2009.

 

The course carries 30 UK credits towards either a masters or a diploma and can be taken by 10 weeks distance study online.

 

The fee is £Stg 654, which can be paid by bank transfer, credit card or instalments.
