I’ve never been in this situation before, in a Google Hangout Convergence Session with academics from afar. Participating in #oldsmooc has broadened my experience of Connected Learning and opened my eyes to it’s effectiveness.
I was nervous.
OLDS MOOC Week 2: Inquire
This week focuses on context. What is learner context? How does learner context affect ways learners interpret and enact learning designs? How can we use context in learning design? How can we personalise designs to individual learner’s needs and contexts?
OLDS MOOC Week 3: Ideate
This week will focus on design representations and their value in enabling design thinking, discourse and sharing. Understanding the form of design thinking will build upon your previous work in this MOOC, namely the vision for your Learning Design, your project (group or individual) and way in which learner context may impact upon design. Throughout the week you will be introduced to a number of conceptual learning designs that will help you to develop your own design ideas and representations, and enable you to consider Pedagogical Patterns, the focus of week 4 activities.
Thank you to the @oldsmooc team for inviting me into these Convergence Sessions.
