MOODLE for Teachers




Session Outline




Moodle for Teachers EVO 2014 (M4TEVO14) online workshop will take place on a Moodle website called Moodle for Teachers (M4T) and on WizIQ for content sharing, live online classes and recordings, and access to the course material after the Moodle course is over. The aim of the M4T workshop is to provide participants, who have never used Moodle or who would like to enrich their previous Moodle experiences, with the knowledge and skills to navigate a Moodle course, access resources, activities, and blocks from a student perspective and practice the same Moodle features in a practice course area as teachers. The participants will develop a lesson or course on Moodle.


The workshop will include both asynchronous (not dependent on time) and synchronous (time dependent) learning environments. The asynchronous will be conducted on a Moodle 2.5 website and the synchronous learning environment will be conducted on WizIQ (free premium accounts for educators) on WizIQ. Participants will watch tutorials, post to the discussion forums, and practice Moodle tools with the roles of a student at first and then with the role of a teacher with editing rights.


The goal of the M4T EVO 2014 course is to help educators ensure the quality of online learning through systematic instructional design of online and blended online courses (BOL) and instructor training on online pedagogies.
