Bronwyn and I had a pretty good meeting today about the approach we might take for the designing for flexible practice component of the new Graduate Certificate of Tertiary Learning and Teaching programme being developed by the EDC at the moment.

Basically our thoughts are around a learner generated content model, supported by an online learning community of practitioners, as well as regular workshops offered by EDC.

1. To learn through the production of content = constructionism
2. To learn through engagement with real and existing communities of practice = social constructivism

So a teacher today, or should I say facilitator is someone who focuses on building and maintaining a strong learning network around their topic, and assigning learners to create content based on what their learning, to feed back into that network.
The picture is one of a few grabed from the white board notes we brainstormed around. I've expanded on these pictures a bit with notes in the comments of each picture in the Flickr presentation.
