Titled: Modular Blended eFaculty Development using Blogs and Instagram
Presenter: Poh-Sun Goh, National University of Singapore, Singapore
Background: This workshop will demonstrate how to deliver blended eLearning using a Blog to provide access to modular content, and to host an online engagement platform, augmented by Instagram for bite-sized content review. The presenter will share practical tips by drawing from experience using this "recipe" to deliver blended faculty development workshops and symposia on eLearning locally, regionally and internationally over the last 5 years (at own university, regional conferences, APMEC and AMEE).
Who should attend: Educators involved in faculty development with an interest to learn how to use a freely available, easy to use, flexible eLearning platform and tools to support and augment their faculty development programs and activities, from an enthusiastic practitioner with experience in blended eFaculty development in multiple educational settings at local and international levels (own university, regional conferences, APMEC, and AMEE).
Structure of the workshop: The workshop will be supported by a purpose built blog and bite sized Instagram content, for pre-workshop literature review and familiarisation with the platform and tools (2 to 3 hours preparation required).
A highly interactive presentation and discussion format will then be used during the "live" workshop, focusing on why and how to use a set of online tools for blended modular eFaculty development, with the workshop itself demonstrating the presentation and audience engagement process.
Intended outcomes: Participants will develop familiarity with a blended eFaculty presentation and audience engagement process for modular faculty development, and learn how to use a freely available, easy to use, flexible eLearning platform and tools to support and augment their faculty development programs and activities.
