Okayama JALT:

Being Constructive with Moodle

Date: Saturday, April 24th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Peter Ruthven-Stuart

In this workshop, the audience will learn how to blend Moodle into their language classes. They will get hands-on experience in setting up a course and populating it with resources and activities. The presenter will emphasize those aspects of Moodle that facilitate collaborative learning. By the end of this workshop, the audience should be in a position to have their own students take a constructive role in their own Moodle courses.

Peter Ruthven-Stuart has been using Moodle since 2003 as both a teacher and administrator. He is interested in constructivist and collaborative online task design.
