#change11 Have registered for the change.mooc.ca. My first experience in a Massive Open Online Course. After watchning the introductory videos, I have a better understanding of what to expect from the course. What is more interestingly (and challenging) is to decide what I expect from my participation 🙂
What do I want from the course?
- I suspect I look forward (understatement) to experience a MOOC
- To be exposed to some of the leading figures in the nexus between higher education and technology
- To get a taste of the diversity of activities and participants
- To see a range of technologies in action
Recently at the Unisa 2011 Teaching and Learning Festival, George Siemens introduced us to a model for wayfinding and sensemaking. I suspect that in writing down my thoughts and reflections I face the “occult character” of the unknown and take away some of its power over me. This then serves as an artifact providing evidence of and embodying the process of sensemaking. In writing down my thoughts, I “declare” and “announce” my current understanding.
