September 2011 CIDER Session

We would like to invite you to the opening presentation of our fall series of free online CIDER sessions.  This session features a presentation and discussion with Dr. Iain Doherty, University of Auckland.Title: Project Based Learning for Effective Postgraduate Distance Education

Iain Doherty will discuss the pedagogical principles underlying a taught postgraduate distance course, ClinED 711 eLearning and Clinical Education. The aim of ClinED 711 is to teach clinical educators the necessary knowledge and skills to convert their own courses for flexible and distance delivery. ClinED 711 was designed to offer a personalized and authentic learning experience and Iain’s presentation will focus on how these aims were progressively realized through refining and improving the course design for ClinED 711. Whilst ClinED 711 is a specialized postgraduate course, the principles for the design and delivery of the course should be of interest to a wide audience.
