Tom Bowie's Introduction

I have transferred what I put in Blackboard in the Individual Blogs. I find this a difficult website to navigate. In my previous module eDesign there was reference to the fact that website access should not exceed 4 clicks. I have lost count of how many clicks to get here.

This is my third module in the Graduate Certificate, have found everything have done so far most interesting. Have been teaching for a while, always keen to learn something new.

I am in the Faculty of Business, lecturing in Communications. My office is along the corridor from Oriel Kelly and her team.

Having been a teacher for over 50 years, evaluation is a necessary component of the teaching process. Thirty of those years have been in the primary service and the last 20 have been at MIT. When I see Tom Reeves' Six Facets I realise I have been doing these for all that time. Hopefully this course will revitalise these skills and add to what I am doing. As I said earlier, I am always looking to learn something new.

As I said in the virtual classroom yesterday, I will see how things go over the next 2-3 weeks, consult with Oriel and see what project I could do.

Here I am, if anyone will read this.

Assessment Question

Hi Bronwyn

I've been looking at some of the assessment details and came across this note:

"Be careful not to use real names for courses, people or organisations in your summary or in the draft or final results".

I appreciate the 'people' and 'organisations' need to be made anonymous but wonder about the 'names for courses' as the ones I am looking at are standardised across the whole country - and are therefore not specific to this college. Is it ok to include them or should I refer to course X and Y?

Thanks Yvonne --Yvonne 14:01, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi Yvonne,

Many thanks for pointing this out as I had not noticed that note.

Helga - How to motivate participants to fill out the survey (or happy sheet)

*This is a post from Helga and has been moved from the main WikiEducator discussion page to the course discussion page.


I tried to raise this issue before during a web conference but as I did not really get the answer I was after I will give it another go and try to revive the discussion page!

My point is: it is not hard to force participants to fill out the good old questionnaire at the end of a face to face course as it is the last thing you do in the course. But with no direct contact, how can you motivate the participant to fill out the form.

First of all, how should you make it available. Do you send an email with the link to the questionnair? Does it automatically appear in the list of course you have enrolled in when you have an LMS?

And then, how do you motivate them to complete it. Is the course only complete when the questionnair is sent back?

Do you send a chocolate fish by post?

I am really keen to find out what your ideas are, because I think we all deal with this issue to some extend.

Helga

Hi All,

Just to let you know I've changed my blog address to: http://sueh-blog4elearning.blogspot.com/ ('hugi1' just wasn't doing it for me)

Bronwyn - could you change this link on the Course Blog, please? :)

I still feel as if I'm behind - have been reading but have not had much time to post.

Hope it's all going well for you lot :)

Elluminate Session

My apologies for not making the session today. It was an early start for me here and I got a tad confused with the time difference as the clock's went forward here for Spring! Rubbish, I know - sorry! Hope to catch up on the recording later. (I'll check the World Clock before the next session - the clock's go back in New Zealand this weekend don't they?).

I'm off on a short holiday next week but hopefully will keep up. Cheers --Yvonne 18:48, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello from Kirsten

Hi everyone, Sorry for the very late introduction. My name is Kirsten and I teach in the IT department at Manukau Institute of Technology. I teach a range of courses, ranging from Information Systems, Multimedia and Web Design.

I am currently teaching full time and also have a night course. This is my first semester doing this Certificate and I eagerly enrolled into two papers; this one and the eDesign course. I also work in what's called the 'Enterprise Unit' within our department. It consists of about 6 lecturers who provide IT solutions for industry. Our department started this unit to ensure that our lecturers stay current and maintain our skills in industry. As I'm writing this, I've realised that I may have taken on a bit much this semester! But I have a passion for teaching and I hope that will help keep me motivated throughout this course.

I was unable to participate in the teleconference as I was teaching at the time. Hopefully I'll be able to take part in some in the future.

It was interesting reading all your posts. There seems to be a wide range of backgrounds and it will be great to learn from each other's different experiences.

Regards, Kirsten

23:27, 9 March 2008

hello kirsten great to see your intro. You will be busy this semester by the sounds of it. we are lucky to have someone with your information technology, multimedia and web design background in the course. I am wondering about your previous experience in usability and other types of elearning evaluation - anything associated with web design? Talk more soon - on your blog. Bronwyn
