Course Studies in Computer Science in Africa 2017. ICT in Education - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part-time This course allows you to integrate theoretical aspects of ICT with your own professional practice in education, as well as enabling you to assess your own achievement of the learning outcomes. In discussion with your tutor, you will identify a potential e-learning development portfolio that will be suitable for your professional practice. Your portfolio needs to be significant in scale and scope. Routine development, such as that involved in normal course learning material development (normal power point presentations, traditional written handouts, etc.), is NOT what is envisaged. Some examples of the type of projects previous students have undertaken are given in the Further Course Information section below. This is a challenging course that involves both individual tutorial appointments for consultation and group teaching. You will use the WebCT discussion forum facility and actively participate in online discussions in order to get the most from tutorials and group work. You must complete required preliminary reading and tasks before attending any of the sessions (face-to-face or online discussion forums). For individual or group tutorials, you must bring your work and prepare questions to be addressed / clarified. On successful completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate of credit for 20 credits at Level HE7. In addition, you may use these credits towards one of the Masters in Education degrees offered by the University of Bolton. After an initial informal exploration, and an initial literature search (intensive use of electronic based resources available at the University of Bolton library and on the internet, is expected), you will formulate clear and specific project aims and objectives. You will agree these with your supervising tutor. The initial literature search including web based research is important. There must be up-to-date, published literature that is relevant to your proposed project. A key part of the assignment involves demonstrating that what you have done is informed. The results of the literature search are submitted with a written piece early on (see below). Having finalised and agreed your project aims and objectives, you will create an action plan showing key stages, criteria for completion, date for completion and keep this up to date. You will be expected to maintain contact with your supervisor at all stages, and WebCT provides the communication facilities necessary to achieve this. All work undertaken and submitted must be with guidance from your supervisor. When developing group-work you will need to keep a meeting log book to record the progress of your work, ideas and reading. Some examples of projects undertaken by previous students: a) Applying e-pedagogy to a multimedia online course: evaluating different pedagogy theories using technology and selecting the more effective one for a case study. b) The introduction of a VLE to support language learning in HE: a feasibility study using a VLE to support, by blended learning, a language course in HE. c) An e-learning portfolio for a HND in Photography: analysis, selection, justification and demonstration of multimedia resources to support a HND module. This module is part of a suite of professional development courses offered by the University of Bolton covering contemporary issues and developments in education. The modules are designed to equip you with advanced skills and knowledge as you progress in your career and take on additional levels of responsibility. To gain a Masters in Education award you need 180 credits; 120 credits from undertaking advanced professional development courses or other selected modules and 60 credits from completing a dissertation. There has to be a balance between what are called option and core modules but this is straightforward and the Programme Leader can advise. The courses can be taken over a number of years, to fit in with your career and work/life balance. Most part-time students gain their Masters qualification in 2 to 3 years, but you can take up to 5 years if you wish. You will have access to 24/7 IT facilities and campus-wide WiFi, as well as one-to-one support from professional and highly experienced tutors. Entry requirements This course is open to anyone with an interest in developing blended learning skills and e-learning. You will need a computer with internet access as this course involves on-line learning. [-]
