Welcome to the facilitated version of p2pu Intro to Openness in Education. This open bite-size course will be offered from Monday to Friday this week. We are using a ready-made open course developed by Dr David Wiley, available under a creative commons license and offer to support your learning during the week so that you get a flavour of open education within a supportive learning community.
There is no registration required to fully participate in this course. Jump in and learn with us!
It is fully up to you with which course topics you engage, how many you choose and in which order. We will suggest a specific daily topic and on Monday we will be exploring together "Why openness in Education".
You are in the driving seat of your learning. Make the most of it! Pick the topics that are most useful for you and your practice. Engage in the discussions, create digital learning artefacts and consider to capture your reflections and learning in a portfolio. You will also be able to study toward open badges:
1. p2pu open badges
2. NWOER open badge for participation
Check out the information available regarding these.
Let’s start by introducing yourself on the p2pu course site, on Twitter, our FB group or Google + community. No need to be everywhere. Pick a space and see what works for you. Connect with others. Learning together is more fun. Remember we facilitators are here to support you.
Use the hashtag #nwoer if anything is unclear and help others too if you are able to. For more info, please check out at http://www.celt.mmu.ac.uk/flex/oerweek.php
Join our On Air hangout on Monday evening at 8pm (UK time)
We look forward to learning with you this week.
