SCoPE is Launched!!!
SCoPE is the Situational-Learning Community of Practice, which is organised and hosted by the University of Adelaide's Situational Leaning Project. This project commenced in January 2007, and is focussing on promoting online role play and online scenario based learning across all faculties of the University and building a community of practice (SCoPE) of enthusiasts to stimulate development. For more details see http://www.adelaide.edu.au/situationallearning/project/
The Situational Learning Project has linked with EnRoLE because of shared goals and is
promoting EnRoLE's website and activities. Members of EnRoLE are also welcome to join
SCoPE and register on the SCoPE site. At the moment, the easiest way to do this is via
the Situational Learning website at http://www.adelaide.edu.au/situationallearning/
SCoPE was launched on 25 July with a Wine and Cheese seminar. Sixteen people attended representing staff from the University of Adelaide, UniSA and TAFE SA. (We also had apologies from others so we have a core of at least 20 people to "get the ball rolling".)
It was a great opportunity to share information about the Situational Learning Project at University of Adelaide, the national EnRoLE project and its activities, look at some examples of online projects and discuss what we could gain from SCoPE.
Ideas for SCoPE included:
If you are interested - please post a response indicating any of the above that particularly interest you. Feel free to add to the list as well.
Also, use the Social Forum space to post a message introducing yourself to your SCoPE colleagues. You may like to post a photo too.
Please tell others about SCoPE and encourage them to be involved in this and the EnRoLE initiative. It increases the "critical mass" of enthusiasts needed to bring about change.
