#BYOD4L open CPD opportunity > join us on the 14th of July #flexcpd @byod4l


Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring the following to your attention:

The Media-Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG) in collaboration with the support of 5 institutions (Manchester Metropolitan University, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Sussex, University of Ulster and London Metropolitan University) and further colleagues from other institutions, is offering for the second time the popular:

‘Bring Your Own Device for Learning’ course (or short BYOD4L) 14-18 July 2014

BYOD4L is a bite-size open course over 5 days for students and teachers in HE but also anybody else who would like to learn with us how we can utilise our digital devices for professional, lifelong and lifewide learning.

Together we will explore the following topics (5Cs):

  • Connecting
  • Communicating
  • Curating
  • Collaborating
  • Creating

Using an inquiry-based approach that will enable us to learn with others and/or on our own within a supportive community. You are very welcome to join one or all the above topics and work towards an open badge or two 😉 There will be six open badges available in total. One for each topic and a course badge if you successfully complete the whole course.

We also plan to offer a face-to-face session to all BYOD4L participants from MMU which will be led by Dr Magdalena Bober and Cathrine Wasiuk.

Join Magda, Cathrine and other MMU colleagues on Thursday the 17th July, 10am-12pm,  Geoffrey Manton 201c.
