    • Learner Support Experience (Activity 7.0)
      Consider one or more of these three questions:
      • In your experience of the ocTEL course so far,
        • describe an instance where the support you received from tutors or peers felt particularly good – what made it good?
        • describe an instance where the support had weaknesses – what made it poor?
      • In your general experience, what approaches create an environment conducive to supporting self-directed learning, peer support and collaborative learning? What do these kinds of learning mean to you?
      • What resources and facilitation skills do you need to support learners in communicating and providing support for each other? Which of these will be most challenging for you?

    • Designing Learner Support & Peer Review (Activities 7.1 & 7.2)
      Review some of the resources listed in the activity and describe:
      • How you would you implement one or more kinds of support in some learning provision in which you are involved
      • How would these meet the needs of your learners (you may find it useful to refer to any work you did on Week 2),
      • The challenges you think they might experience.
      Review a fellow participant’s answers to these questions and, taking account of any personal reflections they have already provided, consider:
      • If the design / approach or mix of approaches is appropriate for the given context
      • Aspects of the design you think work particularly well
      • At least one suggestion for improving the design
      • Resources they might refer to in order to improve or extend the design.

    • Reflecting on peer feedback (Activity 7.3)
      Having reviewed a peer’s contribution, reflect on:
      • Did the experience of reviewing someone else’s learner support design, help you to consider aspects of your own design? What skills could peer review help you to develop as an online learner?
      • Consider your own learner support design, and articulate what changes you would make to your own design as a result of having reviewed someone else’s
      • If you have received a review of your own design, reflect on the review and articulate what changes you would make as a result of the review
