Just back from my trip to Malaysia, this week I begin work on the final report – and in mys “spare” moments will be participating in two online events:
SCoPE online seminar – Personal Learning Environments
Derek Chirnside (from University of Canterbury) and I will be leading a three week discussion on the topic of Personal Learning Environments – referred to the tools and processes that enable us to take greater control over our learning experiences. We’ll be leading discussions on how our understandings of PLEs may change the way we teach and learn.
I’m presenting the third keynote in the Time4Online conference, titled “Educators as Professional Learners” beginning this week. Will be a hard act to follow after the amazing job done by Sheryl Nassbaum-Beach (keynote one) and the student leaders who led last week’s discussion – but it’s a topic dear to my heart, and with the experience of working with teachers in the Malaysian context still fresh in my mind I’m looking forward to it.
