Had a third meeting with Hillary about the redevelopment of the international Tourism Course. In previous meetings we discussed ideas about wikis, videos, open courseware.. a range of things. This meeting was a catchup on where Hillary was up to.

Hillary filled me in on some of the situation - mostly details I can't put here. But we ended firming up commitments to prepare an application for programme redevelopment fund with the following ideas included:

  1. Edit and reformat existing workbooks.
  2. Record audio for slide presentations.
  3. Improve visual design over all resources.
  4. Publish at least 1 whole module to the course as open and easy access, ie. content directly on the website.
  5. Prepare Blackboard courses ready for private communications for the courses.
  6. Trial of staff and students recording interviews with public and industry about the state of international tourism in NZ etc - with a view to developing a podcast out from the Department.
  7. Trial of student blogging for purposes of assisting general and multi literacies. Including possible contribution towards a cross department digital networked literacy student support service.
  8. Development of a learning community to support informal learning in the field.

Hillary is to review these notes and extend or correct them in the comments, then we are to begin working on a Programme Development Fund application with a view to start work in mid August.
