This course is structured on principles of constructivist learning with a view of 'collective knowledge construction'. There will be elements of connecting, communicating, collaborating and learning collectively throughout the course, in face-to-face, online and digital spaces. Exposure to new ideas and concepts, particularly relevant to your teaching practice, will be integrated throughout. You will be required to respond in private and public spaces, based on your comfort in digitally mediated environments. Explorations in creating, curating, synthesizing and remixing will enhance your personal 'sense-making' and our collective 'meaning-making'.
