Description

Teaching with WordPress (TWP15) is an open, collaborative online course on using WordPress for teaching and learning in higher education. But choosing WordPress as a platform for teaching is only one part of the process in developing an rich, thoughtful, open learning environment. Join us to talk about and experiment with, among other things:

Open education, open pedagogy and design.
WordPress as a highly customizable framework for teaching and learning.
Examples of instructors and learners using WordPress sites in many different ways for multiple purposes.
Plug ins, applications and approaches for creating, discussing, sharing and interacting with each other.
A guide for weekly reflection/self assessment based on a rubric for understanding (Wiggins and McTighe).
