Where to start? Well, with a planning hat on. Key message is to use technology solution in the area that you want most improvement, not just shoe horn it in for the sake of it….
Curriculum planning, learner needs, teacher pedagogy (need to get myself one of those), assessment and feedback. What is the best fit and where will I use technology to its best advantage? Who are my learners and what are the learning outcomes I need/want them to achieve? These are questions I need to ask, even if I am just doing a parachute session for study skills! I had never heard of the ADDIE or DADDIE framework for creating courses and had been using OTARA without realising (as part of the scheme of learning we need to use to map our teaching sessions) In some ways I know more than I think and in other far less! Or maybe it’s just terminology? I did feel that I am putting a lot of the tips into action already with using Twitter, Linkedin and other platforms in my teaching sessions but I am sometimes unclear as to the how and why I do it – other than I know that it works 🙂
Week 5 – and the last
The main message that has stayed with me from this week has been enabling learners to have a “belief in their own capacity to achieve”. They should be at the heart of everything we do and that blended learning can give the flexibility to enable those most at risk of exclusion to participate. It takes a department-wide agreed change to embed a blended learning approach – but there are small steps you can take for your individual courses and to suit your learners. Managing your own time as a tutor is just as important and must be included in your planning – how and when do you expect to be contacted and by what time must you reply?
This course really helped to me to see that the steps we have taken here towards blended learning have definitely been in the right direction. The ideas and questions posted by participants have been very helpful in vocalising the issues we have had, as well as highlighting things we never considered. The sharing of teaching ideas and resources has been excellent and we have kept a list open on shared Google Doc for staff here all doing the course to share and amend.

Ok – many of these activities are happening in England tomorrow, but don’t think that our services in Wales are immune – referendum or no referendum next month.
