Anouk Janssens-Bevernage

A step-by-step guide to designing engaging team tasks in Moodle

Content Type: How To's

Target Audience: Teacher / Course Creator 

Language: English

Description of Presentation

This session gives an overview of what it takes to make team tasks work online and how they typically boost participation rates dramatically. I briefly touch upon how this supports adult learning principles and makes your training truly learner centred. I give examples of instructional design before/afters from the many training programmes I'm involved in. A few Moodle tips are thrown in as well.

The presentation will be inspired by my blog posts about the same (eLearning Nomad Blog) with additional examples from online workshops and courses that apply this approach.

Presenter bio:

In 2006 I co-founded DynaMind eLearning, a New Zealand and Australia-registered e-learning company with a strong focus on the non-profit sector, in particular the international development sector. My responsibilities are centred on designing eWorkshops (in Moodle) as well as training others to facilitate and develop their own. I also project manage the Articulate work we do and help with the story-boarding.

Together with the World Vision Australia team, DynaMind eLearning won the 2014 Gold LearnX Asia Pacific Impact Award for Best eLearning Model. The awarded series of eWorkshops (developed in Moodle) exemplifies the model which I have designed 9 years ago and which we have been using for many international development projects (UN and NGOs) ever since.

In 2015 I won the Gold LearnX Asia Pacific Impact Award for Best Online Facilitator for my work in training e-facilitators and Moodle eWorkshop designers worldwide. I run 6 online training workshops every year for clients who are implementing eWorkshops as part of their capacity building programmes (staff and target groups), mostly in the development sector.

I have previously worked and lived in Africa (Zambia, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe and Kenya) for over fifteen years as an economist/educationist (as well as a short stint in Viet Nam. With the support of UNESCO, I introduced Moodle in a national ICT in Education project in Kenya in 2002, which at that time was a very innovative move – Moodle and e-learning in general were then hardly used in African training and education programmes.

As a passionate adult educator it has always been important to me that we develop e-learning that respects adult learning principles , online learning with a very strong human touch. The challenging topics typical of the non-profit sector do not allow us to rely on the content- and assessment-focused approaches used in the educational and corporate sectors.  It was essential that for this particular niche, we create a model where solving problems collaboratively is at the centre of the learning experience - emulating the depth achieved in participatory face-to-face workshops. This is how the eWorkshop model came to be.

I have completed Masters Degrees in both Economic Sciences and Business Administration in my native Belgium. As my career interests evolved toward adult education and e-learning, I obtained tertiary qualifications in these fields from universities in South Africa and the UK.
