Open Teaching
markuos, Squire Morley, Mar 12, 2012
In some ways I've perhaps found this topic to be the lightest on content with regard to the topic 'readings', perhaps because I've encountered both videos previously, not least from participating in the other MOOCs. However, I also found the … Continue reading → Mon, 12 Mar 2012 15:16:56 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 week 16 Irvine & Code – Post 1

Paul Prinsloo’s opendistanceteachingandlearning blogpost ‘Bubble bubble toil and trouble: Unravelling bottom-up/top-down approaches to institutional change (#change11)‘ really struck several chords for me.

David Wiley #change11 mooc week 5 – post 2
markuos, Squire Morley, Oct 11, 2011
