Issues, questions and suggestions
- Social media digital literacy skills will be a prerequisite requirement for successful learning in this environment. Consequently, the initiative will need to provide the necessary support resources to acquire these skills. See Open student support.
- We are also required to identify and list Open Teaching skill sets and subsequently launch an Open Teachers Training initiative ---Anil Prasad 04:58, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
- key issue is to put the student at the centre.
- Use key resources - many example are available and are of quality, eg Noodle tools,http://www.noodletools.com/ Intute, DOAJ, http://www.doaj.org/ TED, http://www.ted.com/ many of the resources on these sites are more current and up to date than some traditional resources
- Use of aggregators which provides quality materials that are useable
- Frame the learning activities around the resources to develop engagement, by embedding the tools and resources into the curriculum
- students find resources - they can discuss these in open fora, can use a variety of methodologies such as PBL WBL, Case study.
- Train students how to use resources
- develop faculty in how to use resources and design around these.
- Use of Post Grad students to develop resources
- Discovery learning - where students through tools discover learning resources and material, engagement can be designed through wiki's
- The use of e-portfolios
