Development meeting 28 January 2009
Not a fan Bron. It is in a format that doesn't engage me (though I realise there are still some people who like to read 2000 words) and it speaks of specifics that I reckon most of the people who will participate in our course (beginners) won't relate to. It also uses inflatory words, and jargon.
- "Since that time we have seen the explosion of the use of the web for teaching in higher education."
Have we? Really!
- "The world (and the web) in 2008 is a different place to what it was when the earlier AUSWEB paper was written some nine years ago. Universities’ online strategies must respond to a new environment."
etc. I think it would be a good reading for some, and that we should include it in an extra list.. but I don't think it is worthy of spotlighting.
I am not convinced you have read it at all! I think it has very pertinent concerns highlighted for people. Not everyone is in the same space as us. I would like to leave it on the delicious feed and let people make their own choice whether to read it or not. wasn't planning to make any fanfare about it.
Oh OK.. sorry. I thought you were planning to use it in the actual course. Absolutely keep it on the Delicious tag. On the tag, I think we just use FlexibleLearning as a tag. That way our readings mix with others which more often than not results in happy findings..
