Version Two of Critical Skills 101 officially begins tomorrow at 8:00PM (GMT) with a live meet and greet on Twitter. Join in, introduce yourself to your fellow participants, and ask me any questions that you have about the course. Don’t forget to include #crit101 in your tweets.
The ‘Week One‘ page has been updated to include the introductory video lecture, reading material, and assignments. Please take the time to watch the video lecture before joining in with the Twitter meet and greet.
Based on feedback from previous participants, it is recommended that you do the reading at the beginning of the week prior to the weekly Twitter discussion.
This week’s Twitter discussion will take place on Wednesday 13th March between 7:00PM and 8:00PM (GMT).
Assignments are due in by 10:00AM on Sunday, leaving time later in the day for you to read and comment on responses from participants in your comment group. You will recieve an email shortly, letting you know who is in your comment group.
If you have friends or classmates who might be interested in participating in the course, there is still time for them to sign up. Enrolment will remain open until Saturday 16th March.
#crit101 Course Leader
Tomorrow, version one of #crti101 comes to an end. I’ll be reading participants’ (#critters) final posts and reflecting on their responses to the course evaluation. Having received quite a lot of feedback already and with time pressing, I have already made some changes in preparation for version two which begins on Monday 11th March.
Some of the changes have been made in response to participant feedback, while the rest have been made to more closely align the course with the principles on which it was built; which I wrote about here.
Below are updated slides explaining ‘What is #crit101 v2?’ Enrolment is open. v1 was very successful; I hope to make v2 even more so.
In the final week of #crit101 the focus is on self reflection. The week six page has been updated with reading material and information about this week’s assignments.
The live video lecture will be at 7:30PM (GMT) on Monday (25.02.13). Check the blog or Twitter around 7:25 for the link. As usual, the slides will be made available prior to the lecture, and a recording will be made available shortly afterwards.
The final Twitter discussion will be on Wednesday (27.02.13) between 7PM and 8PM (GMT).
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.
Additionally, #crit101 is running for a second time, beginning: Monday 11th March. If you know of anyone who you think would enjoy taking the course please encourage them to enrol.
As week one’s assignment deadline passes, enrolment for #crit101 comes to a close.
Enrolment will re-open on Monday 25th February, two weeks prior to the second run of the course, which begins on Monday 11th March.
The course will begin with a live introductory lecture. The link will appear on the ‘Week One‘ page shortly before 7:30PM.
The ‘Week One‘ page has been updated to include a more detailed introduction, reading material, and assignments, including a learner survey. Please take the time to read through all of the information.
The first Twitter discussion will take place on Wednesday 23rd January between 7:00PM and 8:00PM. Don’t forget to include #crit101 in your tweets.
Assignments are due in by 6:00PM on Sunday 27th January.
If you are interested in participating in the course but have not yet enrolled, there is still time. Enrolment will remain open until Sunday 27th January.
