Get involved in the LiDA course!
As I mentioned in my last two posts I am working on an OERu course, which we are crowdsourcing content for. Below is an announcement about it from Wayne Mackintosh and details of how to get involved.
Learning in a Digital Age (LiDA) has been confirmed by the OERu Management Committee as a course for inclusion in our 1st year of study.
Otago Polytechnic will provide assessment services for transcript credit and we extend an open invitation to all OERu partners who have an interest in providing assessment services for transcript credit or credit transfer options for the LiDA course to contribute to the determination of the learning outcomes for the course.
The course structure and outcomes will be derived from similar courses at TESU and USQ because we are aiming to achieve maximum reuse potential of the LiDA course in the OERu network. See:
We are also crowdsourcing ideas for inclusion in the LiDA course from the open community. If your institution would like to submit ideas to help shape the learning outcomes for this course, please ensure that we receive these inputs by 12 May 2016. (Please forward this message to colleagues in your institution who may be interested).
For more information on submitting ideas, please visit:
Within the next three weeks, we will convene an online workshop to identify four micro courses and corresponding outcomes for the LiDA course.
Don’t be missed by your absence!
