During this The Networked Practitioner module from The Open University UK your practice will develop into active and purposeful networked ‘readwrite’ activity. Working on a project, you will publish and share practice within an online Conference and our ‘OpenStudio’, producing module materials which explore and address a key theme in online and distance education. You will also critically assess and actively visualise your own engagement with online networks and open practice.Vocational relevance
This module is designed for educational professionals and other practice-based professionals who want to develop their skills in communicating and sharing their work through professional conference or publication routes linked with online and distance learning. The module aims to provide an authentic experience of how to develop as a networked practitioner both within and beyond the module.

This module is project-based so offers you a larger than usual degree of control over what you produce in your assignments. It is therefore particularly suited if you have previous experience of teaching and/or learning online from which to build. It offers an opportunity to develop and improve existing ideas into publication, presentation or demonstration formats. You will discuss these in an online Conference, engaging with a module-wide and selected external audience under authentic conditions.
