  • Week 1: Ecological perspective -- Learners label their own arena plus annotated bibliography for Niki's reading
  • Week 2: Personal context -- Annotated bibliography of 4 of the assigned readings in relation to research questions
  • Week 3: Work on assignment 1 -- Applying theories of change to personal context
  • Week 4 & Week 5: Learner's participate in SP4Ed mOOC completing assigned blog posts
  • Week 6: Work on Assignment 2 -- (Newspaper articles for two scenarios)
  • Week 7: Change and the organisation -- High level e-Learning capability maturity assessment of organisation
  • Week 8: --- Blog post on research paper outline / Case study
  • Week 9: -- TBD

Summative assessment

  1. Review of change model applied to personal context, weighted 20% (Due 29 July)
  2. Scenario building project, weighted 30% (Due 12 August)
  3. Participation and reflective journal, weighted 20% (Due 7 October)
