We hope you are all well. Unit 2 is coming to an end. We hope you have found this unit useful and learnt a lot about digital literacies and digital identities and explored how this links to your professional practice. We have seen that some of you have started reflecting on the course in the Community space but also using your portfolio. We have enjoyed reading your posts and applaud your honesty and openness. Wonderful that you have started also having conversations about your thoughts and ideas.
As the PBL groups have started working together and we no longer accept new group members to join these. We hope you understand. If you would like to form your own study group, please feel free to do this. Let us know if you need any help, ok?
A reminder to the PBL groups: Please remember to share your work in the FDOL community so that we can comment on your findings. We have already seen some great examples from unit 1 and some of you have used the introduction activity to reflect on your practice and experiment with more visual approaches to get students together before day 1. We are very pleased about this and look forward to finding out more about these interventions.
In unit 3 we will be exploring Flexible learning and teaching and it will be useful to reflect on your current practice. How flexible are you as a teacher and how is this echoed in your practice? What are the needs of your students and how do you respond to these? Where are the challenges? All unit 3 activities and readings are available at https://fdol.wordpress.com/units/unit-3-flexible-learning/
A webinar with Alastair Creelman is planned on the 10th of October, 7-8pm (UK time) to discuss the theme of this unit. Please add it to your calendar so that you can be with us then also.
Let’s continue the conversation! Remember to reflect on your learning and practice and share with the FDOL community so that we can further our understanding together. Google+ is available as an app for iPhone and Android devices so you can participate in conversations on-the-go 😉
Best wishes and see you online
Chrissi, Lars, Maria and Neil
