eLearning for Educators is a course which aims to provide effective professional development through the use of an online delivery model.
Through my own experiences, I have learnt that the internet is a massive tool for connectivity of people with all and different backgrounds, professions and personalities. The beauty of it creates lots of knowledge and many opportunities to individuals. To benefit from this massive digital tool for knowledge, I hope individuals like yourself can drop by to simply like or comment on any of the ideas presented. Feel free to join and collaborate with many other educators, just remember - you don't need a degree to your name to be an educator, you can simply be anyone with an interest or on a quest for knowledge - either way, your opinions and beliefs matter!
The purpose of this course is to present potential improvements in teaching practises, display current issues in the Education sector - with primary focus to the UK but discussions of various countries all over the world is also an option, posting tips and tricks for training and future educators, knowledge and techniques for increased student achievements, ALL leading to gains in an educator's content knowledge. Participants in this course will hold the ability to learn and share best practises and instructional resources through interactive communities.
In a growing era where digital practises for everything including education is beyond prevalent, everywhere you go - everyone holds the ability to open up a page online and learn something new. The biggest advantage for this course is to establish the benefits of the growing online community, and allow various educators with different backgrounds to come together, share and learn of new practises - helping not only them but the students they teach. Therefore, this form or eLearning has become even more accessible and convenient for all participants, as 6/10 of you would be viewing this from your mobile!
