Teaching & Learning Seminar: Facilitating online learning: Wed 4th May

April 12th, 2016 at 07:04

Our next Teaching and Learning Seminar is our annual visit to Sutton Bonington to coincide with the monthly Farmers’ Market. The speakers will all focus on facilitating online learning, both in wholly online and in blended courses.

James Roscoe is part of the AgriFood Advanced Training Partnership (AATP). The AATP offers a number of distance learning courses for professionals working in the agrifood industry. Many of the courses consist of standalone learning resources, but recently more active facilitation techniques have been brought in. James will report on the impact these have had on the students as well as the implications for facilitating their forthcoming MOOC on ‘Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain’. [Edited as Joel Reed is no longer speaking.]

Christine Lee, who recently completed a PhD in the School of Education, has taken part in facilitating and evaluating NOOCs. She will talk about her practical experience and how it could inform facilitation of blended and online learning within the University.

Sally Chappell is involved with both distance-learning and blended MSc courses in the School of Life Sciences. She will talk about her plans for gamification within Moodle to encourage student participation (including geo-based treasure hunts), as well as touching on other approaches she has tried over the last year or so.

Date: Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Time: 12.30 p.m. with hot drinks from 12:15 p.m.
