21st Century Educators Workshop at UTHM!

Looking forward to facilitating a 2-day hands-on workshop entitled '21st Century Educators' at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) from 4-5 June, 2013. 

It is always fun to explore the past, present and future of learning and teaching with educators! Here we go:


This 2-day hands-on workshop will explore the key ingredients to become a successful 21st century educator. We will actively look at how we can transform face-to-face (F2F) learning using the ‘Flipped Classroom’ and ‘Gamification’ methods.  Then we will explore how we can use social media, web 2.0 and iPads to engage students and development content. During the 2nd day, we will explore how we can reuse and remix Open Educational Resources (OER) for learning and teaching. Finally, we will explore the latest big trend in online learning known as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Participants will be engaged throughout the workshop with learning activities, including the gamified group challenge during the 2nd day. It will be fun, engaging, and participants will get a taste of how they can use technology to transform the learning process.


After this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the attributes (ingredients) of a 21st Century Educator.
  • Apply Flipped Classroom and Gamification methods to your teaching and learning.
  • Use Social Media/Web 2.0 to engage students and develop content.
  • Use iPad for learning, teaching and content development.
  • Find, reuse and remix Open Educational Resources (OER) for content development.
