Finished off the first topic, at least almost. Spotted a few problems. Seemed to be difficulties in getting the PBL-group together. Several reasons may be at hand but one thing that strikes me is that communication is a bit confusing. Many areas on the web to scan, not easy to find e-mail-adresses and I guess if you get lost in the beginning it may be hard to keep up with the course pace. I’m still to get familiar with the layout of the Google+ area. It’s not ordered in the way I would like but can’t yet put my finger on where the problem is.
On a very positive note I’ve got to learn a bit on a wonderful cork board “padlet”. Entirely new to me but will certainly come in handy in many situations in my future teaching. Also, the short videos posted have been really instructive and I’m eager to produce a number of such into my programme.
Another aspect important to my teaching is how to best mix online learning with campus and workplace learning. This is a real challenge for educational programs for professions like medicine, nursing, teaching etc since students may well be on campus for long periods.
