The Learning to Teach Online project lives…
I hope you enjoy this video – it is the very first in a series of free resources I have been developing with colleages called Learning to Teach Online.
Wow – I have not posted in this blog for a LONG time! I have been working very hard with my great team at COFA Online – after much hard work traveling, interviewing, editing writing and testing, the first of many video and PDF episodes are now online free for all teachers to use! These professional development resources aim to help demystify aspects of teaching online, and help teachers get started in their own online teaching practice, no matter what their discipline.
Spread the word!
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the Learning to Teach Online project is now active with the first 12 episodes live in the COFA Online Gateway website, Youtube and iTunes U (coming in the next day or two). There are many more episodes being completed, and these will continue to be released regularly – so make sure you subscribe to our RSS feed to keep up with the latest developments. The first episdoes include:
Case study episodes
Using Flickr as an online classroom – Lynette Zeeng, Swinburne University of Technology
Using audio feedback – Simon McIntyre, The University of New South Wales
Hippocrates: Online medical tutorials – Dr Stephanie Eckoldt and Domininc Alder, The University of Bristol
Using Blogs for peer feedback and discussion – Tam Nguyen, The University of New South Wales
iLabs: Online access to remote laboratories – Dr Mark Schulz, The University of Queensland
Each episode contains a video and supporting PDF document that explores the issues raised in the video in more depth. We hope that everyone who uses these resources will find them beneficial enough to share with colleagues, and embed in their own websites using the code under each video.
We’d like to extend our thanks to all of the people we have interviewed for the project so far. If you have been interviewed and don’t appear in a video yet, don’t worry, more episodes are on their way!
Let us know what you think!
Don’t forget you can join the Learning to Teach Online Forum to give us feedback about the episodes, suggest case studies you’d like to see, ask any online teaching related questions or share your own online teaching stories. You can also register with us (don’t worry we promise not to try to sell you anything!) to make comments directly under each episode video. We aim to make a real connection with the teachers out there who will be using these resources, so please sign up and share your thoughts about the project. We hope to see you online soon!
