TERG’s Giselle Ferreira and OLnet‘s Tina Wilson have successfully bid to the HEA Subject Centre for Information and Computer Sciences to develop a new project: Multimedia and Social Networking for Teaching and Learning Ethics in ICS: developing a pedagogy of creativity and openness.
The project seeks to explore a pedagogical framework based on the notions of creativity and openness for the teaching and learning of ethics in Information and Computer Sciences. The new project seeks to create a variety of multimedia objects as well as an accompanying text-based guide and recommendations for the integration of group discussion using social networking tools. Part of the work will involve repurposing the Introducing Ethics in ICS OpenLearn unit to increase its interactivity, the granularity of its components and, consequently, its ease of reuse. As such, the project constitutes the next stage within a cycle of action research funded by the HEA Subject Centre for ICS (and, originally, COLMSCT).
