Topic 5: Lessons learnt – future practice

29  April – 10 May 2019

During these two concluding weeks, peers and facilitators will reflect on and share learning experience from ONL as well as look ahead to see how this will influence our present and future practice. Many questions arise: what effect has the learning experience from this course had on your development of personal learning networks and environments? And in your own professional practice? What were the benefits and what were the challenges? What are the next steps?

Activities for all learners

Collect your documents! Collect and assemble the resources that you have found most important for your learning and future practice. Bookmark them or make them accessible in one place so you can come back to them when needed.

Share your reflections! Please share your thoughts on what it has meant for you to be a member of this ONL community, in your blog and also maybe on Twitter?

Join us for a final webinar! The intention is to share experiences and to have a discussion on various aspects of the ONL course. There are no special preparations for this webinar, but we would like you to interact and comment on different topics, using microphone and camera for further interaction. See the event page for further information.

Continue networking – stay connected!  Continue  to use your Twitter account – find ONLers and follow them to promote further networking even after the course is finished! Are there other social platforms you could use for further networking?

Learning blog
Based on your previous reflective posts and experience gained throughout the course, summarize and critically reflect on  your learning and development. We would like to remind you that this post is mandatory if you want to receive your ONL certificate. The final summarizing blog post should  contain approximately 400 words. You can use the questions below to guide your reflection:

  • What are the most important things that you have learnt through your engagement in the ONL course? Why?
  • How will your learning influence your practice?
  • What are your thoughts about using technology to enhance learning/teaching in your own context?
  • What are you going to do as a result of your involvement in ONL? Why?
  • What suggestions do you have (activities and/or in general) for development of eLearning in your own teaching or context? 

PBL group work
Use these two weeks to look at what the PBL group has achieved during the course, in terms of both group process and visual learning objects! Put together a short summary of the group’s work (using some tool you haven’t yet tried?) and share in the ONL community. Consider the following paragraphs:

  • Who were the members of the group and what have you accomplished during the course?
  • Reflect on your development as a group and the value of the PBL group for your learning?

Resources (optional)

By the end of this topic, you will have had the opportunity to:

  • reflect on and share learning experiences from the ONL course
  • with your PBL group reflect on how the group work has influenced your learning
  • reflect on and share how to use gained knowledge in current and future practices
