Hello everyone! I'm a librarian at Cardiff University in Wales, UK and am looking forward to meeting you and learning from you on this MOOC. My main interest is information literacy and I'm hoping via this MOOC to get a better understanding of learning design to help us design learning experiences in the context of developing information literacy and other learning literacies.
Thinking of looking at how to develop library staff's digital literacy as the MOOC project, so do get in touch if you can help or would be interested in learning together.
Read the Larnaca Declaration this afternoon. Much clearer now what is meant by "Learning Design" - a way of describing learning and teaching activities. The Larnaca Declaration compares the aim of Learning Design of creating a commonly understood educational notation, with musical notation which enables a musician to recreate previously designed music.
It's going to be interesting to see where the MOOC takes us in the use of Learning Design, when planning our teaching or to identify practice to draw in to our students' learning experience.
My colleagues have recently saved their teaching materials in a central location to encourage the sharing of good practice. I'm wondering whether what I learn on this course will also be useful in helping me think about how to index these materials, describing the learning activities within, and so help colleagues identify good practice to use in their own teaching.
