Online Courses from the UNU-GVU

GVU Courses.jpgThe deadline for applications for two new online courses is fast approaching. If you are seeking to enhance your skills as an e-tutor, you may be interested to take the course on the Pedagogy of Online Learning.

You may also be interested about the whole process of course development and implementation. In which case, the programme on E-Course Development and Online Course Leadership may be well suited to your needs. The deadline for applications for both of the above is 18 January 2008 and the courses begin on 22 January 2008. Both courses are for credit and require around 240-300 hours of study.

Past students have made very positive comments on the courses. For instance a student from Somaliland stated “I thought that it was like other classes where you have to compete for higher marks and grades, instead I found myself more of a collaborator and a contributor than a receiver.”

News from the UNU-Global Virtual University

eleanerTwenty four students from eight countries recently graduated from the M.Sc. Development Management run in collaboration between the University of Agder in Norway and United Nations University-Global Virtual University.
In the latest issue of E-learner, graduates from the very first cohort share their views on what have been the critical success factors of the programme as well as their experiences of being online students.
In addition, professors accustomed to ‘traditional classroom teaching’ reveal how their involvement in the programme has inspired them in their work. Last but not least, a new group of international students is now embarking on the second M.Sc. Development Programme, and their expectations are high.
