The plan is to join this MOOC and associated network as a cohort. The syllabus is here.
The initial task is to create a blog (for recording observations and posting responses to the various prompts and activities). You can use http://blogger.com or http://wordpress.com or http://tumblr.com or http://posterous.com. Then register that blog at pedagogyfirst.org and tag all related posts #potcert11
On Friday, November 4th from 9am – 4pm, the FLC Online Educators will host our 3rd annual FLC Innovation in Ed Tech Unconference. This is an informal, unconference-style, lunch-on-your-own, collaborative, grassroots, on-the-fly, bring-your-own-mobile-device event – basically a supportive atmosphere in which to nerd out and talk about teaching and technology. All Los Rios faculty are invited to attend – beginners and experts, adjunct and full-time.
