Topics:

  • Digital literacies

In #FOS201 you will:

  • be supported by distributed volunteer facilitators across 10 NW institutions
  • have the opportunity to engage in inquiry-based activities
  • select what you would like to do, how, when (and with whom)
  • and if you wish, be part of a community to learn with and from each other…
  • and of course, experiment with and experience new approaches and consider some of these for your own practice.

You can do as much or as little as you wish in any order. You may even just focus on one of the above for the main part of the course. Whatever is useful for you! We look forward to learning together
