Week 12

Slightly behind the course guideline, but on track on my evaluation plan timeline! I have just completed two of my interviews, one with an educational expert (although they prefer not to have that title!) and the other from a lecturer that has just become more involved with elearning.

My interview, with the "educational expert", was very interesting and probably very different than I had anticipated. It has made me consider my own f2f teaching and my personal reflective practice of my current teaching.

I think the key things at the moment is that it is all about "small chunks" - you do not have to think that you have to take a "whole course" and put it on-line, but you can make headway, by breaking it down, running with it, seeing how it works for you as lecturer and the student and then reflecting on it.

I look forward to my next two interviews and then getting my head stuck into the "documentation" I have said that I will analyse.

May have more time to do this if we get snowed in! Looking pretty bleak outside.

Week 11

Bronwyn has asked me to post the link of my evaluation plan with her feedback on it. It has been a very useful process to have had this feedback. It has also been good to get used to google docs, as I have not used this tool before - just tend to use track & trace and comments on a Word doc and email back and forth!

here is my the document link with Bronwyn's feedback http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dgg6nrz2_159fpjd42dj

I am now looking forward to the 'action' stage of this evaluation plan, where I get to talk to 'experts' in the field and 'colleagues' that are already using different elearning methods. I am hoping to be converted, inspired and impressed by the use of elearning as a valuable teaching method.

Week 9

I have just sent a message through our discussion forum with a link to google docs with my evaluation plan for feedback. I have not used this before, so I am hoping that it all works! Do let me know if you cannot access it. I look forward to feedback and also the opportunity in reading some of my colleagues so I am also able to give feedback.

Having post the evaluation plan and working through what needs to be done, I realise that I am going to be busy over the next 4-6 weeks!

Better get on with those interview questions.......
