I recently took part in the inaugural Teach Meet 2012 Belfast on Friday 2nd March at Stranmillis college. Thanks to all of those involved in organising the event which was thoroughly enjoyable, the short snappy format of 2 to 7 minute presentations was great!
PLEASE FAST FORWARD TO 36 SECONDS ON THE YOUTUBE VIDEO AS THE START OF MY PRESENTATION WAS NOT RECORDED>>
In my short 7 minute presentation “Utilising ‘Master Courses’ to support collaboration (Moodle 2)” I introduce the concept of ‘Master courses’ which have been created collaboratively by a team of teachers.
I talk about the typical course editing tensions for teachers when working collaboratively in an Learning Management System and propose how this may be resolved through managing course editing permissions at an activity level based on the concept of the ‘Master course’ and ‘Groupings’.
