Notes for a Friday [5]

Its been a busy week with the start of the new academic year being in somewhat challenging circumstances. However, my teaching is all online and I’m ready to start teaching next week.

The Manifesto for Teaching Online

It has also been the week of the launch of the Manifesto for Teaching Online including a programme of launch seminars.

Otherwise, here are two interesting recent quotes on deliberateness and intentionality in and for education and learning:

“research into online learning almost univocally agrees that…well-designed courses with interactive content..continuous educator involvement..timely, and formative feedback are the most promising approaches to fostering learning in online environments”

“Learning also requires that we slow down and invest in skills that take a lifetime to master, like empathy, curiosity, sense-making, deliberate communication and storytelling among others”
