This week we explore participants’ individual areas of specialisation in learning technologies . Use the Project Bank https://cmaltcmooc.mosomelt.org/project-bank/ to share a Blog post or VODCast describing an area of specialisation in the use of technology in teaching and learning relevant to your context.
We will also schedule a Hangout 10:30am Friday (NZ time) where participants can discuss and share their specialisations.
Reflect upon why you have chosen this specialisation?
Comment on one another’s PODCasts or VODCasts giving feedback.
As well as the core areas, CMALT candidates are required to demonstrate evidence of independent practice in one or more specialist options. This reflects the fact that, although there are common areas of work for learning technologists, practice is extremely diverse and everyone specialises in something different.
Your specialist topic should reflect an area where you have particular expertise. This may be unique to you or common across your team, but goes beyond what would be expected as standard activity.
In describing your specialist option you should refer to the CMALT principles and values:
- A commitment to exploring and understanding the interplay between technology and learning.
- A commitment to keep up to date with new technologies.
- An empathy with and willingness to learn from colleagues from different backgrounds and specialist options.
- A commitment to communicate and disseminate effective practice.
