E-learning and Digital Cultures 2011

Week 9 begins!

During this week we will continue the reading, thinking and discussion on cyborgs, posthumans, and other troubling of established boundaries – building towards next week when we begin applying some of this to the challenge of pedagogy and learning design. There have been some super posts on these themes emerging in the blogs, and it has been great to see the ethnographic discussions continuing. Peer support is a really valuable part of the course, so keep up the excellent commenting folks! It has been fantastic to see a couple of new course participants where friends have been brought to class, and I am looking forward to their involvement in the coming cyborg and posthuman discussions.  Also remember the wallwisher is still active, so keep posting your contributions!

This week might be a good opportunity for thinking ahead to your final assignment. As you know, this has to be in digital form, and the topic and some of the assessment criteria are entirely up to you to define. The deadline isn’t until midnight on Sunday the 8th January, but now is a good time to start getting input from Sian, Jen and I, and from the group if that would help you with your emergent ideas.  Post to your blog, or email Sian, Jen or I if you’d rather have a one to one.

Looking forward to more blogging, tweeting and discussion on cyborgs and posthumans! Let boundaries be thoroughly disrupted!
