Moodle Skills for Educators and Education Professionals (MEEP)

Enrol in our ‘Moodle Skills for Educators and Education Professionals (MEEP)’ course. It is an MEA CEED recognised blended learning course designed to support academics and professional staff to develop Moodle skills. These skills are aligned with the provision of  Flexible and Technology Enhanced Active learning curriculum delivery and marking management using the different tools available in the VLE Monash Moodle at various levels to enhance the student experience. The module utilizes a blended approach within a MOODLE LMS itself with online pre-session primers and activities, followed by a hands-on learning-by-doing approach. The face-to-face sessions in this module walks participants through all the Moodle tools and skills  required to build their own teaching units, create assessments and grade reports, and administer interactive training for synchronous and asynchronous delivery.  The Module covers building content, creating discussion forums, incorporating external multimedia materials, including text, graphics, audio, video, presentations, and H5P content within Monash Moodle. The module consists of 13 short sessions in a blended format with face - to face sessions spread over 2 days. The activities and assessments in the module are aligned with the Monash Focus Education agenda in terms of developing skills to design and enrich  units with Moodle based activities and resource types.
