Topic 4 was especially beneficial for me for 2 main reasons. Firstly, it was a timely opportunity for me to reflect on my own efforts in recent years to promote collaboration amongst my own students with the help of blended learning. 2 years ago I started experimenting with online learning activities and, to my surprise,Continue reading "Wearing the learner’s hat: Viewing blended learning from a student’s perspective (Topic 4)"
With this final reflection ends my fast and furious learning experience in ONL192 😊. I am absolutely thrilled by this extremely intense time with fantastic new insides, great collaboration experience and countless opportunities to reflect on the blend...
