These instructions are for your Friday and Monday

Kia ora everyone,

Greetings from New Zealand and the UK!

Welcome to Session 2 of the SP4Ed online workshop.

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 Friday and the leave the second e-learning activity for Monday.

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

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

Have a great day!

Your facilitators
Niki and Wayne.

Number of current registrations

We've received just over 40 registrations from 11 different countries which is a good number for this pilot before we offer the workshop for large cohorts in the future. Thanks again to all our OERu volunteers who are helping us to test the pilot version of SP4Ed.

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.
  3. If you've just joined us you will find copies of course instructions in the announcements box on the course homepage.
