An email was sent to all subject matter experts (SMEs) on the project today requesting their participation in an online survey. Please complete the online survey (linked below) on or before Tuesday, September 22nd.
We've had an action packed week, so here is a summary of several key items to ensure we are on the same page. In addition, I've asked a favor of the design teams as we head into a few weeks of individual design work.
The recording from the Designers for Learning webinar #33 held on Wednesday, September 9th is now posted. This was a special meeting for the Open ABE Design Team. We reviewed the design plan for our open online course, and divided designer assignments.
To both design teams: As a follow up to our September 2nd meeting, I sent an email to the design teams with several housekeeping items. This post is a recap of that email.
The recording from the Designers for Learning webinar #32 held on Wednesday, September 2nd is now posted. We kicked off our latest instructional design project with a brief live webinar to welcome our volunteers. The objective of the webinar was to (a) welcome volunteers to the project team, (b) provide a general overview of the project, and (c) field questions / comments about direction and next steps.
As we kick off the design portion of our project, I want to welcome those who will be the facilitators of the Open Adult Basic Education (Open ABE) MOOC next year. Given that your volunteer efforts won't start for several months, please consider this an invite to lurk (or not) this fall. Hang tight ... your expertise will soon be put to good use!
As we await our upcoming Wednesday, September 2nd webinar, I ask that you begin to dip your toe into our project. Over the next week, please read this post and take an hour or so to skim the materials linked within the post to gain initial insight into our learners and the instructional need.
