Towards an assessment of my teaching

I often share a post I am writing as I do so. In this case having identified the story to tell : running a workshop to solve a ‘messy’ business problem I am pulling together or creating supporting images, in the above case a grab and mashup from Martin Weller’s book ‘The Digital Scholar’ – my goal is to be recognised as one. In a forum post as an Open University ‘Master of arts in Open and Distance Education’ (I graduated in early 2013) I suggested this could be achieved in four years – John Seely Brown thinks that eLearning speeds things up, while Weller reckons on ten years.


4 things to make you a digital scholar

Boyer’s four main scholarly functions were:

  1. Discovery
  2. Integration
  3. Application
  4. Teaching

Martin Weller proposes that those of the digital scholar are:

  • Engagement
  • Experimentation
  • Reflection
  • Sharing
