On the whole I think that the course is well organized and facilitators have been active. The resources are relevant, useful and new to me, so I’ve been exploring them and applying to my project «OER module for teacher training».

Every week I have opened a wiki related to the theme and learning outcomes, which for week 3 embraced:

  • Conceptualise the learning design process from different perspectives
  • Apply some learning design resources, tools and methods to your design
  • Critique a range of pedagogical approaches and the role that different technologies play
  • Review, share and discuss the theoretical underpinnings, benefits and limitations of design representations across educational contexts
  • Develop an innovative storyboard, learning activities and a structure for implementation
  • Opportunity to gain the 3 Weeks and Resource Gatherer badges

The links for my wikis are:

WEEK 1 –http://oldsmooc1week1learningdesigndefinition.pbworks.com

WEEK 2 –http://oldsmooc1week2contextualize1learningdesign.pbworks.com

WEEK 3 – http://oldsmooc1week3designrepresentations.pbworks.com

In the last two weeks I have applied the Learning Design methods and tools presented in LD Design GRID to my «OER module for teacher training», namely, Scenario, Narrative, Storyboard (in Glogster), Course Map, UML Diagram and Workflow (Gliffy). I suppose the Course Map was my favourite. Some were not so relevant because I have already my project contextualized in my professional activity and as it is a development of work previously done, there’s not much brainstorming involved.

I have explored the 7C’s of LD slideshare (Conceptualize, Capture, Communicate, Collaborate, Consider, Combine and Consolidade), the course features (pedagogical approaches, principles, guidance and support, content and activities, reflection and demonstration, communication and collaboration), the different templates to organize learning units (course map, activity profile, storyboard).

Readings of clouds:

I’ve selected and read two of the case studies that used course map tool:

  1. Patrick McAndrew narrative on the adaptation of a course that already existed «Introductory module to Maths using OER» for a new context in USA, replanning required using Course Map tool.
  2. http://www.open.ac.uk/blogs/OULDI/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Narrative-9.pdf

Creation of 3 more clouds to add resources:

http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloud/view/7876 – Mindmap (Mindomo) – Context, learning theories, learning design

http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloud/view/7877 – Glogster – Multimedia visualization of OER Module structure

http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloud/view/7878 – Wiki – Instructional and Learning Design models

I have explored the wiki page on Course Map and the Open University Design Initiative on methodology for learning design composed of tools, practice – http://www.open.ac.uk/blogs/OULDI/

Reflexions on WEEK 3 in Google Groups and in my Learning Journal – http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloud/view/7579 and in my Posterous Space .
