As you may know I’m part way through my PTLLS course, which focusses on teaching approaches for adult learners.
As part of the course I have to do a 15 minute micro-teach.
I’ve been struggling a bit with knowing what to do in that session.
We won’t have access to computers so I can’t cover any of the things I’d normally do in my workshops and I’m not sure how much I could realistically teach in that time.
The one idea I have had is to do something around licensing of content.
It’s important for (potential) teachers to know what they can and can’t use as resources in the classroom and I don’t think many people really understand it.
Now that I know the overall theme I need to come up with a specific learning objective.
That’s where you come in. What do you think is a realistic outcome for a 15 minute session?
I plan to simplify the options into Copyrighted material, Public domain material and ‘Creative Commons’ material (as a shorthand for something that’s open to use, possibly with some restrictions.)
I need to think about how to structure the timings but I can probably only fit in one exercise, which could be to match statements to their licence type.
For example “Photo can be used in handouts as long as you include the name of the photographer.” That will match to “Creative Commons”.
Information about which websites they could use will probably be in a handout.
I would appreciate any thoughts you guys have on this.
