7 Your chance to contribute: share your ideas

In this session you have considered how learning often involves a social and collaborative process. Sharing and discussing ideas with colleagues is an invaluable part of learning. To support this, you are now invited to go to the course forum page [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   and make a post to one of the two discussion threads below. If you decide not to, it will not impact on you obtaining your digital badge.

‘Coaching others to coach’ course forum

  • Unlearning discussion thread – to what extent do you agree or disagree that unlearning takes place and is sometimes necessary before learning occurs?
  • Coach developer learning discussion thread – how do you believe you have learned to become a better coach developer? Are there any parallels between learning to become a better coach? If so, what are these parallels?

Reading and sharing your thoughts with others will add a further dimension to the learning you can gain from this course. The course forum will normally be moderated throughout the year. However, if your post needs a response from the Open University staff this will normally take two to five days.
