getting ready for OER/SEDA conference July 20th
Gill and I had our paper accepted for the OER/SEDA conference. Our rather long title is
Equipping academics to design fit for purpose Distance Learning curricula through experiential learning using an OER. We thought it would be an opportunity to disseminate what we are doing at Teesside and get some external critical feedback on the module that Eric Bel and I have designed.
We had a very productive day last Friday working on our presentation and refining the disscussion element of the session and I’m looking forward to 3 hours on the train as an opportunity to focus my thoughts!
There have been several iterations of the module to date and hopefully we are coming to the conclusion of the development and are getting ready to pilot it with our own staff. Eric and I have been thinking carefully about the formative experiential activities that are subsumed in the module, which are linked to the production of the particpants own Distance Learning module as well as the validity of the Module as a whole as an OER.
