Sign-Up for School of Webcraft – 12 January!

The School of Webcraft course organisers are hard at work getting their courses polished and finalising their sign-up tasks in time for January 12th, when we open course applications to the public.

Sign-up tasks are a great way to find out whether participants understand about the non-formal, collaborative learning that takes place within P2PU and School of Webcraft.  One course organiser set a really useful series of sign-up tasks which involves technical skills but which also asks applicants to watch a video about P2PU and write a response.

If you’re thinking about signing up for a class with P2PU, you might want to get started with this example sign-up task first:

Task #1

Watch this video to acquaint yourself with the purpose and philosophy of the Peer to Peer University and the School of Webcraft. Share your personal learning goal and how you’d like to help others with their learning.

Unfortunately, not everyone who applies for a course with P2PU and School of Webcraft can join in. In order to maintain a successful peer-learning environment it’s important to keep groups small and manageable.

It’s also important to determine that course applicants have suitable pre-requisite knowledge so they can participate in course activities without holding the rest of the class back. To measure learners’ skill levels, many course organisers set technical tasks that are similar to the types of activities that make up the courses.

We use sign-up tasks to help us with a really difficult part of organising courses, determining who should be allowed to participate. Completing sign-up tasks is a way for learners like you to demonstrate their commitment and motivation to participate in a course.

Once courses are opened for application you’ll be able to view and select the Sign-Up button which takes you through to more information about the sign-up tasks.

To find out more about the courses you can sign-up for from January 12th, please view the School of Webcraft page on P2PU.
