Oor dosent-evaluering

So tussen verlede week se stadige spoed van die internet en ‘n vol program word die blog bietjie afgeskeep. Maar ek het gister ‘n lekker artikel raakgeloop oor dosent-evaluering in die Chronicle. Lees gerus hier oor die Unnecessary agony of student evaluations. Daar is paar interessante idees oor studente as verbruikers / kliënte en wat […]

Meer oor die vervlegde-leer / Blended learning werkswinkel

Op 30 Januarie het Akademiese Steundienste ‘n werkwinkel gehou oor vervlegde-leer en die keuse van tegnologie vir jou module. Vervlegde-leer is wanneer jy ‘n kontaksessies kombineer met tegnologie: voor klas, in klas, na klas, of met assessering. Kobus le Roux, Juan Steyn en Henk Louw was die aanbieders.

Ek hoop om binnekort ‘n eie #EdTech aanbieding reg te hê om vir studente meer te vertel oor hoe hulle tegnologie en nuwe (sosiale ) media kan gebruik […]

A few first thoughts on games and badges

Tweet for academic discourse

Everybody knows that I love social media and the access that it gives to news and views.
