Unit 6 starts tomorrow. This is our last unit where a new theme is introduced. We hope you are enjoying the course so far and feel that you are learning and get ideas to make some changes to your practice as a result of your engagement and development. Feel free to share your ideas around this in the community.
Unit 6 is all about open educational practice, something we all experience in FDOL132 as this is an open course ;). For more information about this unit, please access https://fdol.wordpress.com/units/unit-6-open-practices/ where you will find learning activities, useful resources, including recent papers from peer reviewed journals. Please continue reflecting in your portfolios and comment on work done by others. Remember also to comment on work completed by the groups, even if not a member.
A webinar has been scheduled for Thursday the 21st of November with Simon Thomson, the Head of e-learning at Leeds Metropolitan University (UK) at 9.30am UK time who will discuss open educational practice with us. Consider following Simon on Twitter too (@digisim).
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 😉 There is also an Adobe Connect app available if you would like to try this too.
See you all online,
Chrissi, Lars, Maria and Neil
