In 2011, the programme team for the MSc in Digital education at the University of Edinburgh, which included students, teachers, and researchers, developed a series of statements that they hoped would capture what they felt was “generative and productive about online teaching, course design, writing, assessment and community”. They have posted this manifesto to a webpage and their intention is to spark discussion about what it means to teach and learn online.
Visit the site here “manifesto for teaching online” and explore the various tabs. The team welcomes remixing, reusing and critique, and have posted a variety of these on their website – the “manifesto on the move” tab outlines various responses to the manifesto – see if any resonate.
At the beginning of this course journey think about the principles and statements outlined. Which ones do you identify with the most? Are there some that you aren’t sure about? Write a post, add a comment to this page, or create a response in another way.
