Light at the end of the tunnel by Terry Grealey
Week Six and we are nearing the end of the exploration phase for Flexible Learning. Now it is time to start building your toolbox of strategies for teaching and facilitating your students in your own unique style. For this topic you will be investigating a range of possible strategies, within the five dimensions (time, delivery and logistics, entry requirements, content and instructional approaches and resources) of flexibility (Casey & Wilson, 2005). Blended learning appears to be preferred by students. So what does this actually mean in terms of your  teaching and the tools you use? .... Read more about this topic on the wiki.

Speakers this week
I have organised two speakers for the workshops this week:
1. Wednesday, 6 April. Onsite: 10:00-12:00. Venue: D317. At 11:30 - Barbara Kerr from Vet Nursing will tell us how they are using video assessments in their programmes.
2. Thursday, 7 April. Web conference: 15:00-16:30. At 15:45 - Jennifer Hamlin ( previously a facilitator in the course) also from Vet Nursing will tell us how she facilitates learning for distance students.

I hope you can join us for one or the other workshop or both to design and describe strategies for your teaching context.

Activity Five – Design and describe flexible learning strategies for your context.

There is one reading this week.

    I I love the graphic for this week - this time last year I was on a barge trip in the Canal du Midi in the south of France!

    There was never this much room under the bridges we went under!
