Hi Leigh, I would very much appreciate to participate in this course. It will be a completely new experience for me since I have never participated in a course like this before. I am an EFL and German teacher in Portugal and I have already had the chance to know Wikieducator during a wiki course here at Wikieducator. Can you please tell me how long the course is going to last?
Hello Joao, let me just check the course schedule... :) Officially, it lasts for 17 weeks, but its flexible. Some people might like to go through it quickly, others might like to take longer. As long as the assignments are done and you try to participate in as many of our meetings as possible, then you will be fine (in terms of assessment). Those of us who choose to go at our own pace will perhaps loose a little in terms of common communications with the rest of the participants, but it can work out quite well too. Those that go ahead can test out the new topic for the rest of us and feed back things to watch out for. Those that go slower obviously benefit from the majority of us having already been through the topic. Hopefully most of us will pace ourselves with the schedule, but we'll see :)
