I am currently preparing a TDF bid for the use of blogs as collaborative learning. To stop this post being just another distraction activity, I will post the general summary here. This is what we are after:
Participative inquiry is a powerful vehicle for student engagement and learning. Our proposal uses blogs to create a discourse around the topic of Sustainable Operations. This topic has been chosen both for its alignment with the expertise of the project leaders, and for its interdisciplinary resonance.
UPDATE: I have modified the aims to be one of collaborative learning rather than participative inquiry, a more realistic goal…
If it is successful, I will follow up with more details as well as updates on progress.
