#crit101 – The Interview

Pascal le Rudulier is a fellow educator with an interest in MOOCs. As such, he signed up and participated in version one of #crit101. After completing the course he asked if he could interview me. I readily agreed and what follows is the outcome.

We covered a range of topics including: my motivations for creating the course; how I put it together; the highs and lows experienced in version one; and what I hope will come out of version two.

Why should I enrol in #crit101?

Quite rightly some of you have asked why you should enrol in #crit101?

Here goes:

  • To improve the way that you learn outside of the classroom
  • To improve on and develop a set of skills that can be used across all of your A-Level subjects
  • To develop skills and prepare for the rigours of learning at University
  • To learn to be a more independent learner
  • To engage in new ways of learning that you are likely to encounter at University or within your chosen workplace.
  • The course is something that you can put on your University application and CV
  • The skills are accredited and can be added to a personal blog, website or online CV
  • It would give you that something extra to discuss at an interview
