  • 2012
    • Continue to improve compliance/quality GOOD TEACHING WILL LEAD TO QUALITY & COMPLIANCE
    • Adoption of child/meta course structure department wide
    • Mandated use of Moodle for all assessment plans and assessment events
    • Continue to grow flexible / distance course options
    • A FEW OF US KNOW SOME TRICKS, WE NOW NEED TO SHARE THEM (and learn more)
  • LESSON 1 - DO SOMETHING
    • You have to start somewhere
    • Don't let perfect be the enemy of good
    • Don't make work for yourself by doubling up, do the same things but move them into Moodle (better still reduce your workload using technology so you can focus on value adding activities)
    • Let people do things their own way - help them, but stay flexible
  • LESSON 2 - STOP THINKING IN STRAIGHT LINES
    • Moodle layout - Child/meta course structure confusing at first (for teachers), but is great for knowledge management and when used well is great for students
    • Same goes for clusters, units, lessons, assessments and resources inside Moodle... Don't force something to be linear for the sake of it
    • Think like a student sometimes (a typical student, not a good student)... Will help get the right mix of structure and flexibility
  • LESSON 3 - FIND FUNDING Money is out there if you know where to look - Government grants - Within your organisation - Partner with industry
  • LESSON 4 - GOOD TEACHING LEADS TO QUALITY AND COMPLIANCE
    • Assessment plan delivery and acknowledgement
    • Student inductions
    • Course planning
    • Marking / feedback
    • Regular use of Moodle 'accidentally' handles our Knowledge Management
  • LESSON 5 - LEARN THE TRICKS AND SHARE THEM
      • Basic HTML is easy and worth learning
      • Embed video / screencasts / Equella objects - (create once use many)
      • You don't have to use every tool (KISS)
      • Hide items in hidden topics
      • Whatever you do, make it easy for teachers (or it won't last) and valuable for students (or they won't use it)
  • SUMMARY / QUESTIONS
    • Do something
    • Stop thinking in straight lines
    • Find funding
    • Good teaching leads to improved quality & compliance
    • Learn the tricks and share them
