Change, Change, Change

Today (this week) marks the start of the latest MOOC organised by George Siemens, Dave Cormier and Stephen Downes. This one is entitled ‘Change: Education, Learning and Technology‘ and brings together leading researchers to discuss their work in this domain.

Allison Littlejohn is leading ‘Week 3: Collective Learning’, and we are now starting to think about how we shall present our recent research. I’m also hoping to participate actively in (at least some parts) of the course. Finally, we are hoping to conduct some of our own research during this MOOC and I hope to reflect on that experience here.

For these three reasons, I think this blog is likely to get busier in the next 6-9 months.

  1. One of the reasons I am participating in Change11 is to explore how digital supports for communication can enrich our work with regional teachers participating in professional development (be it 1/2, full, or multi-day on-site) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I am convinced there must be more we can do to engage in ongoing dialog with teachers. Questions that drive my interest are: What will they value and how can we make it a seemingly effortless support mechanism as they continue what learning they want. I look forward to week 3.

    1. Hello Sally, thanks for your comment, and hope to connect with you during the course. Ongoing teacher professional development is an interesting context as there are great opportunities to share practice: standardised curricula mean that teachers in different schools will face similar challenges.
