Question from Prof. Diana Laurillard’s keynote session #15

Given the collaborative model, reiterative learning is important. This means a need for “time” to learn. Where then do short courses stand in the move towards blended learning?

  1. Short courses have to plan the total learning time, just as every course does. That includes ALL the intended learning time: time in class, for activities, for reflective blogs, for discussion forums, for revision, for doing assignments, for doing exams - everything. The activities involved in collaborative learning are part of that, and will have to replace other activities in the conventional mode of teaching. It is a zero sum game!
