In the final week of #crit101 the focus is on self reflection. The week six page has been updated with the video lecture, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.
The final Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (17.04.13) between 6PM and 7PM (BST).
One of the key features of the final week is the end of course survey. Please take the time to complete it carefully. It is both an important part of your reflective process, and will also provide me with useful feedback about the course.
In week five #crit101 is turning its attention to synthesis and evaluation. The week five page has been updated with the video lecture, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.
This week’s assignment is collaborative and involves video. It should be both challenging and enjoyable. I have tried to include as much information about this in the lecture and on the blog. But as always, should you have questions or need help, please turn to the community and ask.
The weekly Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (10.04.13) between 6PM and 7PM (BST).
In week four #crit101 is turning its attention to reading and analysis. The week four page has been updated with the video lecture, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.
This week’s Twitter discussion will take place on Wednesday 3rd April between 6PM and 7PM (GMT).
This week’s assignment is a paired activity and requires you to critique a given article. Once again Google Docs will be used to complete the assignment. Check your inbox to see who you are working with and to find your invite to your Google Doc.
*Apologies for the background hum in this week’s video. The fan in my MacBook Air went into overdrive part way through the recording.
In week three #crit101 is turning its attention to validity and reliability. The week three page has been updated with the introductory video, reading material and information about this week’s assignments.
After a second week with a low turnout, I sent you all a survey about your preferred time to meet on Twitter. With 49% of the vote: 6PM – 7PM has come out as the popular choice. Therefore, this week’s Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (27.03.13) between 6PM and 7PM (GMT).
Also, don’t forget to read and comment on each others blog posts. Some of you got stuck in with this process right away but others didn’t. It is a very important process in developing discussion around the skills you’re learning as well as providing a layer of support for one another as you continue your journey towards becoming a more in(ter)dependent learner.
* Pre-warning: #crit101 does not stop for Easter break – the fun continues with work on reading and analysis (week four); synthesis and evaluation (week five).
For whatever reason the Wednesday evening Twitter discussions have not been well attended so far, during this second run of the course. I am not sure why that is but wondered if the time of the discussion might be an issue. As such I have created a single question survey to find out what your preferred time is. The discussion has to be on Wednesday so that it is mid-week and also does not clash with other events. Please take a minute or two to complete the survey.
