I haven’t been able to spend my day thinking about the scenarios today (note to self to watch them first-thing tomorrow) as I’ve been a bit busy, and I’m kinda tired too. As a result I guess my thoughts are probably a little less formed than they might otherwise be.
Anyhoo, I decided to think about scenario two. As someone who works in our Learning and Teaching Centre my first thought is about showing him the LTC website and the CPD sessions and the L&T contact for his department so that he can start having conversations with others. And then encourage him onto the Post grad Cert in Academic Practice.
But this is all face-to-face and quite how that fits with BYOD is beyond me really. I am struggling with this (and feeling a little concerned to post!)
Perhaps I’d also suggest he take a course like this, or another free online course. And then maybe that he join online communities like the PeerWise Community to ask questions and see what other people are doing. I’d also want to know what, in particular he is interested in. For example, I have a colleague who is flipping his classrooms and I’d put them in touch to have a chat, and I’d probably introduce them via email or Twitter (dependent on this guys preference).
None of this feels very inspired, nor is it embedded in or supported by, tech, but I think ultimately for me this is about personal interaction and often face-to-face personal interaction…
