May 17th:From Content to Curation Ben Betts, Research Engineer, International Digital Laboratory, Warwick University

We live in an age of rich content. So why is it that most of our elearning initiatives start with a call for more content, a practice that is both costly and time consuming? Ben Betts, one of the UK’s leading thinkers and practitioners in the field of curation, says the trick is not in creating learning materials centrally, but in curation: making best use of the materials that already exist, or that learners are already creating. Especially for areas of complex or fast-moving understanding, curation is an ideal approach. Join Ben on this session to explore:

  • Beyond the world of learner-content interaction
  • Turning your learners into curators
  • Why learner engagement is essential and how to achieve it
  • Shaping behaviours by using techniques from gaming
  • Fostering 'Cognitive Presence

Just a quick note that this recording is only a minute long! I was definitely on the call for longer than that!

Any way of getting the rest of the webinar up please?
