That's all folks!

Dolphins

This is the final seed message in the forum, well done on getting this far. We hope that you have enjoyed the course and found it interesting, informative and - perhaps - challenging in places. We also hope that the course delivered what we promised at the beginning and that you...

"...learn(ed) about the Open University's model of distance teaching, specific information about how the School of Computing and Communications delivers its curriculum, and practical information about the tutor role."

We also hope that you feel more confident in what you can contribute as an OU tutor, that you have identified which module(s) interest you and that you are ready to complete your application form. You will find the OU Tutor vacancies page at https://www.open.ac.uk/jobs/tutors/

So, from Ana, Ann, Chris, Chris, Christine, David, Diane, Indra, Jenny, Kate Nigel, and Vic - good luck with the application, so long and thanks for all the fish!

Tutoring for the OU

After completing this course I am very keen to work again as an AL tutor for the OU.  I have been working in a traditional institution and would like to take it further and tutor for the OU.  When teaching throughout lockdown online I got on really well with the students and got into a nice flow of teaching the students, developed a rapport and the students responded well.
