An invitation from Terry Anderson and our friends at CIDER:
We would like to invite you to the next presentation in our series of free online CIDER sessions. This session features a presentation and discussion with Dr. Rita Kop and Dr. Helene Fournier of the National Research Council, Canada.
Title: Facilitating quality learning in a Personal Learning Environment through Educational Research
After speculation in the literature about the nature of possible Personal Learning Environments, research in the design and development of a PLE is now in progress. The researchers will report on the educational research involved in the National Research Council of Canada, Institute for Information Technology’s Personal Learning Environment project. This presentation will highlight important components, applications and tools in a PLE as identified through surveys of potential end users. The learner experience and the minimum set of components required to facilitate quality learning will be placed at the forefront.
