A dream project -support staff in using learning technologies by peer support and collaborative learning

Cloud created by:

I advise and support university staff in using learning technologies at Oxford.  

My project aims to create an online space where university staff can share their successful stories of using learning technologies in practice.

By sharing their stories, hopefully more university staff can be inspired and encouraged in making better use of learning technology.

The project also provides opportunities for people who have common interests to team up to help each other.  For example, if a group of people are interested in the same topic/story, I can organise a workshop for them to work together.

If this sounds interesting, please join in.

All the best

Hi Fawei

I'd be interested in your project - it has resonances with what I've been thinking about

I like the idea of sharing stories...I think this really can help faculty overcome issues around "how does this apply to what I want to do?"

One of the things I'm also interested in is the way in the online experience relates to the qualification beyond just the experience on a particular module or course (I know this territory fraught for misunderstandings as qualifications, programmes, courses and modules can be used in different ways).

Hi Fawei,

I am from Singapore and my team in a government agency deals with learning technologies. My organisation is still currently in the stage of early adoption of these technologies, and this project sounds very interesting and relevant to what I am doing. I'd be grateful for an opportunity to join in the discussion here.

Just a little background of myself - I'm a fresh College grad from a technical background (focusing on HCI). Since I'm new to the professional world and to learning design, I may or may not have much to bring to the table, but I'm interested to follow the discussion and learn from all of you.

This is a big part of my dream too. I am developing a blended programme in community Learning and Participation that jsut started this year. I am hoping to help staff and student develop their online practices to create a more engaged community of learners.

Hi Kate,

Thank you for being interested in the project.  I had to take one-week off last week.  Hopefully I can catch up with the course mates this week.  If you like, let's keep in touch either here or via Twitter @oxford4learning to carry on the coverstaions.

All the best
