Workshop activity 2 : Sketching the design
Cloud created by:
10 July 2012
This activity is 1hr 15 minutes long and will focus on the use of two approaches to creatively 'sketch' the design of the pedagogical and tool/technological structures of the MOOC. The first 30 minutes will be led by me (Rebecca Galley) and will use the OULDI 'Course Features' and 'Course Map' resources to promote design thinking around four dimensions of the curriculum: Guidance & Support; Content and Experience; Communication & Collaboration; and Reflection & Demonstration. The last 45 minutes will be led by Brock Craft and will use a Collaborative Sketching approach to support creative and collaborative thinking about MOOC technologies and pedagogies.
Live blog from the workshop: I've just run the Course Map activity (see my slides below for the activity and resources). The activity seemed to go really well and revealed a strong coherence (which was unexpected given this morning's discussion - see Activity 1) and some unexpected features came through - i.e. the use of portfolios (and I wonder if this help us with a decision about using Badging i.e Mozilla Open Badges??)
The design problem around the flexible vs structure/scaffold is clearly still not resolved...
Some useful feedback from Diana about the cards that support the 'Communication and Collaboration' dimension - that the cards don't allow for as clear articulation about 'what and how' students will collaborate and communicate - just 'that they will'. We need to add some tools and approaches (i.e. student created networks/ tutor directed networks, voice/ text/ images and video, PLNs/ CoPs/ CoIs email groups, moderated/ unmoderated, 1-1/1-many etc) see Course Map discussion video below.

Live blog from the workshop: Brock has just introduced the concept of Collaborative sketching and set us an activity.
- In small teams, draw the interface the students will be using (ie the computer screen that the student will see)

Live blog from the workshop: Brock's activity has caused a great deal of excitement here - a real focus on getting ideas out of our heads onto paper. Again, I'll add the phots and videos of activity design process later.
