When the alarm clock went off this morning, I will admit that I looked at it in disbelief as we started our week long EDCURRIC 720 course. This paper is focusing on digital pedagogy and how we will incorporate this into our practice not only for the upcoming year but further in our practice.
To begin with, our cohort was asked to reflect on our first year and shared an insight from this time. Have a look at what the team came up with:
We were set with the task to present an activity based on one of nine readings that we are to complete for the course. I chose a reading that looked at the role of minimal guidance and some of the thoughts behind whether this is beneficial in inquiry based learning. I chose to run a few different tasks to help the group see what insights I had gained from the reading.
After our presentations, we looked into learning theories to help us build the foundation for the remainder of the week. After the shock of having to rely on an alarm clock again, I am grateful for the combination of running the activity and building my knowledge of learning theories as I am feeling that this week is really going to kickstart my practice this year. Stay tuned for some more instalments from this week!
