4 Summary

Adopting digital technologies offer a wider opportunity for engaging with peers around the world as well as the wider public. Digital artefacts are cheap/free to create; distributing and producing such artefacts might easily be accommodated in your normal workflow. Once created these digital resources are available to use in your teaching and learning and available to others for reuse. You will look at this abundance of content next week as well as some pedagogical responses to changes in the digital environment.

Next week you will focus on teaching – the last and arguably the most significant of Boyer’s categories.
