5. Working with others

This course can be studied by individuals working alone. However, it is a practice-focused course and many of the activities will suggest that you talk to a colleague or a group of colleagues about an idea or an issue. Course forums provide an opportunity to share ideas with other participants. A team of facilitators will be engaging with you on the forums for the duration of the course.

Learning is a social process; by presenting your ideas to others and listening to them in return, your learning will be enhanced and enriched. In fact, a very good way to maximise the opportunities of this course would be for a group of you in the same institution to work together on the tasks and activities. If that is not possible, then use the course forums to interact with each other. Forums work best when people engage with other posts, as well as presenting their own ideas, ask questions and respond to those of others.

Activity: How will you study?

Allow approximately 20 minutes for this activity

On your own or with a group of colleagues, plan how you are going to work on this course.

  • When will you study?
  • Will you be able to work as a group, or individually, meeting regularly to compare notes?
  • Will you keep a conventional or an electronic notebook?
  • What do you hope to get out of the course?

Being proactive in this way means that you are more likely to meet your study goals.
