Now I have found the marking scheme for this CCK08 course. I am wondering how to consider the situation. I feel myself as a young Canadian university student 🙂 Someone said in Moodle (was it Stephen after forcing us..) that this course is NOT ordinary and so we dare to say what we want and unsubscribe if we want. But after reading those marking schemes – and knowing that Sia have received an assessment of paper 1 – I am just wondering.
Does it make sense to assess all participants in similar schemes? Why? I never do so in my online courses to adults, I write feedback individually. I have worked in different universities more than 30 years, how should I become assessed and by whom? I had my conversation with my boss last week (so called developmental discussion) and he accepted my own assessment about goals and achievements. This is how I see myself:
I want to be an online teacher of high quality and I see that I have to understand human learning deeply. I have to be able to work in networks because I cannot be an expert alone. I have to develop my online pedagogy all the time. How could I assess this all?
The only simple criteria for me is to use English; I am doing it. But it is not interesting at Canadian university which uses English all the time. The other area in which I see empowerment in myself is online pedagogy. i have listened both Stephen’s and George’s analyses about this course and I could have done the same myself (I mean it).
I have got an experience about networking and some good presentations of it. I must have learned something and I have become more conscious of the necessity of networking. And I know how difficult it is to network in this course when you come from Finland, this is an important experience. Who regulates the world clock, for instance?
But how about learning? I do not have any feeling of proceeding, not yet. I like Lisa Lane’s picture 18.9. where the new part is “web-based activity makes the most sense through the connectivist lens” . I could not write my position on connectivism in the way required, I gathered all possible associations about learning. I am asking about connections between them: this is my second beginning in this course.
I am not sure if I use concept maps or APA citations and I am not sure how I continue here but I will continue studying human learning – I am sure about it.
