I work at the Otago Polytechnic as a research teaching assistant and digital literacy support to staff. I am participating in the [design for flexible learning practice] course delivered by my colleages in the educational development centre and wikieducator.
I am presently collaborating with Hillary on the conference paper researching writing about Intellectual Property in the What to use?and sourcing literature generally for referencing.
deleted 20.03 use as introd EDC
Despite a relatively small splash this policy change has made, there are already many signals that strategic planning will in time be implemented throughout the organisation to provide staff training and multimedia literacy and support. Polytechnic reinstated a staff training department as an Educational Development Centre to train staff in flexible digital multimedia programme development, and to promote and to maintain quality of content.
The scale of Web 2.0 developments is very challenging to institutional learning and highly likely to compromise quality of courses, some more than others.(References) For some teachers it must feel a exponentially unmanageble -on a global scale as well as i.e. inter-departmental, inter-organisationally. Collaborative flexible teaching innovations will evolve way beyond the English speakers in the Commonwealth of Learning. Now there are courses published in blogs and collaborative course development on Wikis there may be no going back
