28/10/16 Update on this story: Brisbane Training has been postponed until November 14th & 15th for LMS Course Creator and November 16th & 17th for LMS Manager. Please drop me a line for more details, I’d love to see you there!
So, I suppose I should start blogging a bit more about work. I have to admit I’m terrible at this; I’m terrible at blogging in general, but really awful at self-promotion. But I’m looking at my calendar and we have LMS training in Brisbane in October so I should promote it.
October 24th and 25th – that’s a Monday and a Tuesday – we’ll be running LMS Course Creator, training teachers to create courses in the Moodle™ Learning Management System. And I say we, but it will be me! I’ll be the one leading the class! I will have a great team from Pukunui behind me all the way though.
And October 26th and 27th – Wednesday and Thursday – we’ll be running LMS Manager, training new Moodle admins how to best manage their LMS.
Can’t make Brisbane? Can’t make October? No problem, you can also sign up for both of these courses in Sydney in November. We’re running Course Creator on the 21st and 22nd, and LMS Manager on the 23rd and 24th.
Get your Booster Shots
I am also planning a workshop day on the 25th of November to run our Training Booster Shot Workshops! Come get your Booster Shots in time for the Summer Holidays! You know the Summer Holidays? Yes those extremely busy times when we schedule all our maintenance because students won’t be online!
We currently have a workshop for Competency Frameworks and Learning Plans that were introduced in Moodle 3.1. As someone who’s been teaching in the VET sector for over 6 years, this is what I wanted most from Moodle. I believe I added it to the Wishing Tree at Moodle Moot AU 2015. I presented on some of the challenges of Competency Based Education at MoodlePosium 2015 and iMoot 2016. And here they are! Come find out how to use them with your ASQA Training Packages!
And for the other workshop? Well, I have something in the works, but I’m not ready to reveal all, so watch Pukunui’s Training page for more details.
I hope to see you in Brisbane!
