LIVE Collaborate event: Thursday, June 18, 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm Pacific – Closing Session

Join us in Collaborate Ultra to hear what’s next as you get ready for your first course/s (LRNT521 for the Online-only cohort, and both LRNT521 and LRNT522 for the Blended cohort). Meet program faculty and staff, and review your program from start to finish. Learn more about the cohort rep role. Provide us with your feedback on your The Link experience.

You’ll notice that for both the Online cohort and the Blended cohort, the Collaborate Ultra (Class) hyperlink takes you to April’s The Link Moodle shell. This is because both cohorts share this Collaborate space, as the two cohorts join together in LRNT523.

All Collaborate sessions are recorded and will be saved here. In the MALAT and DipLAT programs it is your responsibility to listen to the recording in a timely manner if for some reason you are unable to attend the synchronous session.

Activity 5 | Confidentiality Form, Model Release Form, and Photo for Student ID Card

Part 1: Please read both the SET Confidentiality Form and the Model Release Form (click links to download), then print, sign, scan and email them both to SET.Admin@royalroads.ca.

Part 2: All students registered in degree, diploma and certificate programs at Royal Roads University are entitled to a Student ID card, and are expected to have a photo in the Student Database. Log on and upload a photo to your MyAdmin account according to the specifications below:

  • The photo should be current (within the last 6 months) and passport style, but smiling is encouraged.
  • The photo must be in colour, and taken against a solid-white-coloured wall.
  • Your face should take up approximately 65% to 75% of the image.
  • The photo must show a full front view of the face and top of the shoulders, centred and squared to the camera.
  • Photos must be clear, sharp and in focus.
  • Save it using one of these two file extensions: .jpg or .jpeg.
  • The file size should be between 12KB and 28KB.
  • Next step:
    • Send an email to GuestServices@RoyalRoads.ca with a scanned copy of government-issued photo ID (for example, your driver’s license). Please include your name, student number, and current mailing address in the email. As long as the photo you have uploaded is appropriate, University Reception will then process an RRU Student ID card for you and mail it to you.

Activity 6 | Building your Community – A Timeline Activity, Parts 1, 2 and 3

What makes a community?

The answer is: too many things to list. But shared experiences and knowledge are elements of what makes up a community. Over the next few days we will be doing a timeline activity in which we will be sharing our experiences with each other with the intention of getting to know each other better and creating our own online community. If you have not yet had the opportunity to use Padlet, take a moment now to Google it or YouTube it to find some useful “how to” tutorials. This site may also be a useful resource for you as you move through your program: Technology Tools.

Please do each timeline activity in order. Post your answers on a sticky note on the MALAT/DipLAT Timeline Activity 6 Padlet wall by the date and time listed in the Schedule for Activity 3’s Parts 1, 2 and 3.

During The Link we will monitor your sticky notes.

**Note: Padlet may open better in Firefox or Chrome than in Explorer.**

**Note: You don’t need to log in or create an account to do this activity**

Part 1: Questions 1 and 2

  • In your sector, what have been the predominant technology changes over the past 20 years?
  • In your sector, what have been the predominant learning and education models used over the past 20 years?

Part 2: Questions 3 and 4

Once you’ve posted to Padlet 1, think about the following:

  • In your sector what do you see as the next “big” technology in the next two years?
  • In your sector, what do you see as the next move in learning and education models in the next two years?

Part 3: Question 5

Finally, look forward 5+ years.

  • How do you see education, learning and technology intersecting?
