This course brings together technologies for learning and workplace learning, important for work-based learning experiences. Technology is ubiquitous in learning and in workplaces; just as learning is ubiquitous in work settings. In this course, we will zoom in to use a range of technological apps in online, classroom and work settings and critique their possibilities and limitations. In the process, learners will experience different pedagogical approaches and examine the online learning environment and how it informs possibilities for facilitating learning. In addition, learners will explore a range of workplace learning strategies, and their use and effectiveness in work and online settings. These different spaces of learning will be brought together through examining different examples, drawing also from their own experience. A critical engagement with literature from differing perspectives of workplace learning, and technology enabled learning will provide the context for evaluations of different strategies for learning in workplace and technology enabled settings. The focus is to develop seamless learning experiences across different learning environments. Learners will choose a technology enabled and/or workplace learning setting to apply teaching and learning strategies they design, and evaluate their design and facilitation, with peers.
