@BYOD4L is back in January 2016 #flexcpd

The popular open course ‘Bring Your Own Device for Learning’ course (or short BYOD4L) will be back for the fourth time and it is open to all!

Join us from the 11th to the 15th January 2016

BYOD4L is a bite-size open facilitated 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 based on the 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 of the above topics and work towards an open badge or two 😉 There will be seven open badges available in total. One for each topic and a course badge if you successfully complete the whole course. All work submitted will be peer reviewed and can be used as evidence of CPD. BYOD4L can also be used for FLEX.
