Still running behind on webinar overviews. A digest of our recent webinars over the last few weeks.
Fine Focus – Presenting with Blackboard Collaborate
As always this session was recorded. The session was our last webinar before the Reform Symposium Online Conference #RSCON #RSCON4 and so we decided to provide a further training/practise/question and answer opportunity for presenters/volunteers.
Serendipity 17/18 Oct 2013
In this recorded Serendipity session we talked about the recent Reform Symposium Conference #RSCON #RSCON4. We were a small group and all of us had had some involvement as participants or presenter/volunteer/organiser, so the session provided an opportunity for us to share our thoughts, reflections and ideas.
Fine Focus – “Tech Smackdown”
This was another recorded session the intention was a quick tech smackdown type share of some favourite tools/applications that save time or that we use with students but we ended up discussing a variety of: tried and tested tools, some previously used with students and some new that we plan to try. All in all a great session with many shared links.
Serendipity 31 Oct/1 Nov 2013
In this recorded Serendipity session our chosen topic was “Blended Learning”. We started with a discussion on our understanding of the term blended learning, moved on to share tools that have been part of our best blended learning experiences, considered some of the advantages, and ended with a brief look at how/why we choose tools and strategies for blended learning.
Once again I am finally up to date with posting webinar links. Sorry again for the short session descriptions.
Our Next Webinar
Our next webinar will be an Edublogs “FineFocus” session on Thursday Nov 7th at 23:00 GMT/UTC (Afternoon/Evening USA) or Friday Nov 8th at 7am West Aus, later in the morning Eastern States Aus depending on your timezone (check yours here) – in the usual BlackboardCollaborate room.
I say we make it a new rule that you continue to create these monthly digests. They really do tie things up nicely and I can see at a glance which session I need to revisit when a topic comes to mind again.
Great idea Gail! As long as you mean instead of an individual overview for each webinar (which I know I haven’t been doing lately due to time pressure). I was hoping to get back to individual ones but have been failing dismally in that recently. I must admit it would be easier to continue doing them like this and might mean that occasionally I would be able to post on other topics than webinars.
