Pedagogy First!

Pedagogy First!
Here I go thinking that I can quickly finish this task as I’m on catch up mode big time. I should have known better!! Having watched the video and read the articles, I am left thinking about Issac Asimov’s Foundation series. First the video I usually turn up my nose at theory as I see myself as a more application person, but the content of this video totally hooked me. As time went on and as my study needs changed, I moved to extramural study (management and maths) in the late 1980s to the early 2000s. Coming back to face to face teaching (IT) in the mid 200s was an interesting time because the Internet was here and making a big impact. Now of course, we are hit by the Web 2.0 tools and I have been introduced to the connectivism mode which this course is all about – designing my own learning environment, finding out what works for me and trying new things. If I look at my teaching style, I am definitely of the constructivism mode. An example of this from my current teaching. Related:  Exemples de MOOCExemples
