  • Presentation originally prepared for the CeL sessions during the TE21 Summit (02 Nov 10)

    Welcome to the CeL session!

    Note that our logo is a stylized power button on its side. This represents the empowerment in e-learning we aim to instill in our stakeholders.
    Significance of the small “e”, big “L”: While we emphasize learning and not the technology, we recognize that e-tools provide affordances that can push pedagogy

    We are part of the Office of Teacher Education (OTE); not with ACIS any more
  • The mission of the CeL is to support, initiate and sustain e-learning.

    Examples of support:
    e-Portfolios by the Office of Teacher Education
    Innovative ideas from teaching staff

    Key initiatives are in areas of learning that are:
  • Support: Existing Blackboard efforts while pushing pedagogy by promoting other tools within the suite, e.g., Wimba, online videos, online assessments, i-SMS

    Main photo used under CC licence
  • Social learning: To take advantage of the technologies that students and teachers are already using socially and integrated them into teaching and learning.

    Special note on Google Enterprise in NIE: Set for release to all staff in January 2011 semester.
  • Open as in free and open source; open as in not locked in learning management systems (LMS).
  • Mobile: Again to take advantage of the minicomputers, cameras, GPS devices that are already in the hands, pockets or bags of learners and repurpose them for learning.
  • Sustain the initiatives in two broad strokes:
    Professional development by CeL and our sister group in NTU, the CELT.
    Reestablish a community of e-representatives (ground up, not top down like before)
  • Photographer retiring; position will not be refilled

    Change in photographer’s job scope; archive institutional memories

    Other information
    Photographer to provide training for NIE staff
    AGs to budget or outsource

    Not based on importance of project
    Criteria not clear
