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.
Open Learning Design Studio (OLDS) - Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) The project will design, deliver and evaluate an 8-10 week Open Learning Design Studio MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) focusing on the theme of curriculum design with OERs, to be held in early 2013. Open to individual educators from across the UK HE, FE, and community and skills sectors, the MOOC will aim: to increase the uptake of OERs through embedding the use of curriculum design tools, practices and approaches in individual practice and design team culture; to empower practitioners to become change agents in their local contexts; and to produce a collection of CC-licensed OER resources for wider use after the MOOC ends. Weekly activities will feature a range of presenters with a focus on foregrounding successful JISC and HEA funded UK projects and giving UK practitioners access to (and opportunity to learn from) some of the best of European initiatives. Further details regarding how to get involved, start dates, and core themes will be announced during the summer. Project Outputs

Current/Future State of Higher Education - An Open Online Course Le Mooc à deux voix et quatre mains | Le Blog de Tété Enyon La rédaction de cet article est née de l’idée de confronter deux expériences d’apprentissage à distance dans deux dispositifs de Massive Online Open Course (traduction : cours en ligne ouvert et massivement distribué) : le cours « Managing Election Campaigns » de la Peer 2 Peer University et le cours « Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2011 » de Stephen Dowes et George Siemens, offert en partenariat avec l’Université de Manitoba. Ces deux cours ont en commun d’être délivrés exclusivement en anglais et d’accueillir une cohorte multiculturelle et multilingue d’apprenants. Le cours consacré à la gestion des campagnes électorales s’est étendu sur six semaines, celui sur le connectivisme s’achève prochainement et aura duré 12 semaines. Les rédacteurs : Tété Enyon Guemadji-Gbedemah a suivi en 2010 le cours consacré à la gestion des campagnes électorales à la P2PUniversity. 1- Un MOOC, est-ce vraiment utile ? Christine : oui, sans hésiter. 2- A quelles conditions ? 3- Pour quoi faire ?
