A Sharing Community using a Moodle Hub

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As the use of Moodle in Canada rapidly grows, so is our desire to share courses, materials and promising practice to avoid 'recreating the wheel'. Moodle Users in Alberta, Saskatchewan & BC are collaborating, using a Moodle Hub, to allow teachers to provide rich resources on-line to learners. The process of sharing and tweaking is so important - one teacher starts a project/course/resource with the time they have, then another teacher adds their time and viewpoint into it. The accumulation of efforts works to improve teacher practice and ultimately, student learning. Professional discussions in the group have evolved beyond open sharing to a learning community for online education. Come and join the discussions!

 

It is our intention that this will be an interactive session encouraging discussion.

- creation of an open sharing environment using Moodle 

- ideas about effective learning communities

- promising practices for distributed education

- strategies to promote on-line collaboration

  Our 'takeaways' include:

- creation of an open sharing environment using Moodle

- ideas about effective learning communities

- promising practices for distributed education

 - strategies to promote on-line collaboration

as well as free access to the Moodle Hub we are using:
