    • Readiness for online learning (Activity 2.0)
      Complete two or three of the questionnaires depending on the time you have available and make a list of the characteristics they have in common. Publish this list and add a short comment/reflection, considering how the questionnaires:
      • can help us plan to introduce learners to online learning and TEL,
      • accurately identify your readiness, and
      • how you might use them with your own students.

    • Learner expectations (Activity 2.1)
      Find a colleague or someone else you know who has limited experience of online learning and TEL and discuss the following topics with them.
      • Using the ‘readiness for online learning’ themes that you identified in the previous activity, discuss the extent to which they feel ready to engage with TEL.
      • What expectations and concerns do they have about using TEL?
      • Do these expectations resonate with your experience of this course?
      Note: this activity does not require you to publish or discuss your exchange with your colleague, but you can if you wish.
