OLnet virtual workshop - brainstorm
A brainstorm of a workshop for "teachers" to make good use of patterns (OLnet away day 2 July 2009)
Cloud created by:
2 July 2009
Discussion to decide what is the best sort of virtual workshop that would help teachers understand how patterns/designs can help use of OER.
Sharing and reusing with colleagues (avoid mention of patterns/learning design)
Where to get and how to share resources
Creating better courses with fewer resources
Creating better courses with freer resources **: Using Learning Design and Patterns with OER
How to teach with OER <- avoid acronym unless with JISC OER community
Main focus:Design work on a course that is relevant to them
Stages: illustrate the steps with reasons on the way
Build on: afternoon part of Tuesday workshop 30/6
Understand pattern concepts
Fit of patterns
Link to own context
Short introduction (slideshare)
Case studies using the same pattern (jigsaw)
Discovery of patterns by doing and making shareable outputs
Apply to own context
Perhaps can be more subject focused
Incentives fot people to stick with it - with flip cameras
Subject based OR seek different fields - subject based will help though.
Exeter JISC group in September [HEA funding]
Emphasise the professional connections
slides (with voice over?)
OER structure - OER for OER
CSCL case as study
1 or 2 more perhaps developed from scenarios
Six month impact survey
Expert advisors on line (cf FELS)
Very short intros for expertise - feedback said more needed though!
Teacher oriented workshop
Validation/choice of techniques - with systems and then move on.
What should we be trying to:
Benefits for us: validation of the ideas, case studies, are the ideas interesting, guided activities, resources or patterns that are significant for them
Engage for six months: Fellows
Cascade out via Fellows
Be clear about the points at each step
How to connect people from different places?
How to connect workshops and stages?
Implies virtual environment.
Launch in September with Exeter (hybrid)
Bring in methodology from the LKL experience.
