Projct based learning in the CDE

Started by Terry Anderson September 7, 2011 - 10:22am

Late notice but:


Title: Project Based Learning for Effective Postgraduate Distance Education

Iain Doherty will discuss the pedagogical principles underlying a taught postgraduate distance course, ClinED 711 eLearning and Clinical Education. The aim of ClinED 711 is to teach clinical educators the necessary knowledge and skills to convert their own courses for flexible and distance delivery. ClinED 711 was designed to offer a personalized and authentic learning experience and Iain’s presentation will focus on how these aims were progressively realized through refining and improving the course design for ClinED 711. Whilst ClinED 711 is a specialized postgraduate course, the principles for the design and delivery of the course should be of interest to a wide audience.
When: Wed., Sept. 7th, 2011, 11am – 12pm Mountain Time (Canada)
*Local times for the CIDER sessions are provided on our website:

Our external reviewers recommended that we incorporate more project based learning in the MDE.

This presentation should be a good background.

Do you think we should use more project based and collaborative learning in the CDE???

Hope to CU there.
