Questioning the course
A few weeks ago George Siemens and colleagues organised an original on-line conference about how to make conferences more communicative and interactive (see my review in an earlier post). Now they are organising a similar activity and this time the concept of the course will come under the microscope (see From Courses to Dis/Course). We organise nearly all education in tidy packages known as a courses but is this model in need of re-assessment as the potential for net-based collaboration and informal learning develops? The seminar will take place 14-15 May using the e-meeting tool Elluminate as well as Moodle. More information will appear shortly on the blog.
