OL 341—Community Based Adaptation:The Lite Version
As I mentioned in this month’s newsletter, this week we’re going to begin offering OL 341 Community Based Adaptation 1 in a Light Version. Students of this course actively exchange and share information on a course forum, on our Facebook page, and at our Development Community.
|OL 341 Community Based Adaptation 1
Students are developing real, community based adaptation projects in partnership with communities all over the world through the course. The information that they are sharing is about the progress of their project’s development, questions that they have in hopes of getting new ideas from fellow course participants, and useful resources that they have discovered during the development of their projects.
The Lite Version
Each week, running in parallel with the course, I will be posting for you a discussion sheet about community-based adaptation, and an example of that week’s homework. This is simply to give you the opportunity of seeing what these courses are like from the student’s perspective. They also give you an opportunity to better understand what the students are discussing that week.
This is called the Lite Version, because the full course has a collection of online student resources, expanded discussions about that week’s assignment, and, of course, it has the course leader who works with students in reviewing their assignments and in making suggestions that may be useful in improving projects.
