Thank you for stopping by. We are very excited!!! We will be offering the next version of FDOL very soon. FDOL141 is an informal collaboration between the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and the Unit for Medical Education at Karolinska Institutet (KI) in Sweden. Colleagues from both institutions will facilitate this course together with colleagues from other institutions. FDOL141 will be offered as a Flex CPD opportunity for MMU teachers and a continuation course in higher education pedagogy for KI teachers.
Teachers at KI who are interested to know more about FDOL as a continuation course please access the announcement on the Karolinska home page.
The starting date of #FDOL141 is the 10th of February 2014 and the course will be offered over 6 weeks. The registration will be open soon. Feel free to subscribe to the FDOL site to keep up-to-date.
We are currently making modifications based on participants’ feedback, our own reflections and observations and recent research findings. The FDOL132 is preserved and made available here too for individuals or groups who would like to use this course format. The plan is to make FDOL141 a course that has a longer life as such it will be more flexible and could be used in a variety of ways.
We are looking at the moment for further developers and groups of participants from different institutions who would like to join us for FDOL141 and become volunteer facilitators. These could be FDOL131/FDOL132 participants but also others who are experienced developers/academics and feel comfortable and confident in open online courses and have experience in such environments. FDOL141 facilitators would participate in the online discussions, comment on portfolio work, organise weekly Google hangouts and provide support to individuals and groups when needed throughout the course.
A webinar with all facilitators will be organised in advance of FDOL141 and you will also be invited to join the facilitators’ community which we will be using to co-ordinate activities and support each other during FDOL141.
Please add a comment below if you would like to discuss this with us or send us an email at openfdol @ gmail.com (without the spaces). You can also tweet us at @openfdol using the hashtag #fdol141.
Speak again soon.
