Today we begin our journey in planning education futures together!

Kia ora everyone,

Greetings from New Zealand

Welcome to Session 2 of the SP4Ed micro Open Online Course.

Instructions for Session 2

If you haven't had a chance yet, please complete the new participant survey. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to complete and this information assists us with planning OERu futures.

During Session 2 we will introduce you to the world of scenario planning as a strategic planning methodology. We commence with a short video interview with Niki. Using examples of scenarios you will explore their structural components leading to the formulation of a personal opinion on scenarios, their utility and sharing what you would like to achieve during the workshop. (We're hoping that a few OERu volunteers will consider creating scenarios on the future of the OERu to help us with our strategic planning ;-))

You will find a copy of the detailed instructions in the workshop schedule on WikiEducator.

Note that Session 2 spans two days. You may want to pace yourself by working through the relevant materials to complete the first e-learning activity on Wednesday and the leave the second e-learning activity for Thursday. Remember to keep fellow SP4Ed learners up to date with what you are doing through regular microblog updates.

We include a little feedback on Session 1 and a few tips below.

We're look forward to reading and contributing to your thoughts on the microblog activities for this session.

Have a great day!

Your facilitators
Niki and Wayne.

Feedback on Session 1

Looks like most participants have set up and tested their personal learning environment for the course. Great to see a few blog and microblog posts appearing in the aggregated feed.

  1. Remember to tag your blog posts using "SP4Ed" if you want these to be listed in the aggregated feed. (See how to add a label if you are using Blogger or how to add a tag if you are using WordPress.)
  2. When viewing the aggregated feed, the "time stamp", for instance "about 3 hours ago" or "37 minutes ago" is a link which will take you to the original post. (See: Making the SP4Ed feed work for you.)
  3. If you've just joined us you will find copies of previous course instructions in the announcements box on the course homepage.
