CPD on demand – Can you help build it?

In a couple of weeks we’ve got our Teaching and Learning inset day. This is usually a great day, with lots of teaching staff sharing their ideas in a host of websites.

I want to continue to explore new ways of delivering inset on Moodle and other ICT use, so I’m going to be setting up one or two new Moodle courses, plus fishing out some older ones and run it as a drop in session – encouraging staff to come in and take responsibility for their own CDP, with hands on support as and when they need.

Using that as a starting point, I also thought that some staff might want to take another step towards the kind of CPD that we all get from Twitter and the blogs that we read. To that end, I’ve set up CPD on demand and I need your help.

I’ve started to create pages for subjects. The idea is that for each subject there will be a list of websites and people to follow on Twitter. Visitors can either explore individual blogs, or search through a Google Custom search. But for this to work I need to know the websites and Twitter accounts to add. And that’s where you come in.

Could you please spare two minutes to head over to the site and add a couple of links? Feel free to add extra subjects, or anything else you think would be useful to those teachers visiting the site.

Hopefully, once it’s set up it’s something that you can share with other colleagues at your school.
