Time and Space for Online Learning: My Reflection

I honestly did not think I could make it to the end of ONL191, but I did and for that I am grateful to my facilitators Elaine and David and my group members, primarily Caroline, and Bengt, who unfortunately had to drop out due to his heavy workload. It has been a wild ride right from the start but happy that I stayed the course …

Lessons Learnt

Our group has had our challenges in trying to keep it all together, but we have persevered and here we are at the end of the course. We compared an online or blended course to an orchestra, where the facilitator is the conductor, and learners are the musicians, each skilled in different ways, but all […]

Let’s strive for an ecosystem of learning, shall we?

What is online learning? What about blended learning? How does one design for one, or the other? Are they interchangeable? How does a flipped classroom fit into the picture? So many questions. And so many more answers. In case you missed my earlier blogs, my foray into online and blended learning started just under two years ago. It has been a very steep learning curve, …

Cooperation vs Collaboration: Spot the difference

Open or Not? Ask me again in a few years …

I’ve always thought of myself as a fairly open person. I’m open to new experiences, learning new things, and exploring new ideas. That said, I am also mindful of being too open – especially when it comes to sharing my personal life and sharing my private thoughts about contentious issues.
