The Head of Distance and Flexible Learning, Dr. Jenny Evans and Instructional Designer, Alanieta Lesuma-Fatiaki represented CEDT at the 9th PRIDE Regional Workshop held in Nadi from the 8th to 13th of September. The theme of the workshop was “Pacific Knowledge Societies: Developing Equitable Access to Quality Resources and Information Literacy”.
They had presented Moodle as an e-learning platform and also participated in a panel discussion on developing resources which are culturally and linguistically relevant to the Pacific and the need for quality digital content for the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Oceania project.
The workshop was targeted at education policy makers and practitioners responsible for the development and management of resources and services that support teaching and learning of school libraries, information communication technology and information literacy.
The two CEDT staff found the experience very enriching and valuable.
