Study Schedule

The following is a work in process (at least beyond week 1).

The semester will be split into two modules:

  1. Module 1 – Weeks 1-8: Living and learning about NGL.Where you embrace Networked and Global Learning (NGL) and hopefully generate lots of new knowledge about what NGL means to you as a learner, student and teacher.
  2. Module 2 – Weeks 9-15: NGL and you as teacher.Where you take the insights about NGL you have devleoped during Module 1 and plan how you will harness these to support your pedagogy and learners.

Tweaking of the course

The details outlined below and on the assessment page are correct. However, I am making some minor tweaks to the weekly activities. Mostly just making sure the links are correct and minor updates based on what we learned last year).

The weekly updates will be completed (at the latest) just before that week starts.  The rows of the table below with a grey background indicate weeks that have yet to be tweaked.
