10:45 – 11:00 am Wednesday May 26, 2021
Sue Hellman is a retired BC teacher with nearly 40 years of classroom experience. She also used to give online PD courses in the use of digital tools and resources through BC’s now defunct Community of Expertise in Ed. Tech., and her last position was at the University New Brunswick as their Student Learning Engagement Specialist. Sue has a Diploma in Adult Ed. from UBC and an M.Sc.in Instructional Media, a fully online degree, from Wilkes University.
Sue’s current passion is HyperDocs, and she refers to herself as a HyperDoc-a-holic. She’s here today and tomorrow at 2:00 to give us a crash course in what these learning design supertools are and what they can do for us and for our students.
One of the challenges educators face while shaping our next normal is figuring out how to offer consistent and engaging learning experiences to all students while at the same time providing opportunities for personalization and active learning. HyperDocs, digital teaching/learning packages in which you bundle the resources & activities for one topic or learning arc, can help you meet these goals.
During this introductory session, you’ll discover what HyperDocs are, how they fit the open pedagogy/OER paradigm, and why they can work well in the evolving higher ed. ecosystem. The I(heart)HyperDocs workshop continues with Part 2 (mostly hands-on) on May 27 @2:00 PT.
