Updates regarding the GSPPDC open course and a new #IUADigEd Webinar.
In May, we launched the second national rollout of the Getting Started with Personal and Professional Digital Capacity open course. We opted to deliver a highly-flexible online version of the course to afford our participants the time to plan their teaching enhancement with the support of their peer groups and course facilitators over the summer. In August, we reconvened for participants to verify each others’ work, and some undertook the additional facilitator training. To date, 35 badges and 6 facilitator badges have been issued. In the interest of flexibility, there are groups still working away to complete the course. Some participants are planning for their own local rollouts, and some are planning to embed the course within formal CPD offerings. When we developed the course, we envisioned it being sustained beyond the life of the project, so this is a welcome outcome. I have offered to work with and support others to get the course running in their own context, and we have discussed continued national rollouts with our growing group of facilitators. The feedback has been largely positive once again, and it’s been a joy to see another cohort complete the course. – Kate Molloy
After a short break over the summer months, the popular #IUADigEd webinar series returned this
week on 26 September, with a conversation led by Kate Molloy and Clare Thomson. Titled ‘Humanising Learning Design with Digital Pragmatism‘, based on their successful workshop at MYFest during the summer, the webinar has been recorded and can be watched on the project website.
We are currently planning our schedule of webinars between October and December, so watch out for announcements. You can sign up to the IUADigEd Community to get email notifications. If you’d like to suggest a webinar, contact Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
