Moodle Competencies at the Moodle Munch!

We were delighted to take part in the final session of the Moodle Munch series last Tuesday, March 9, 2021, presenting ‘Moodle Competencies’. MoodleMunch is a lunchtime webinar series, led by Dublin City University and supported by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning. In the series, members of the Irish and UK Moodle community present good practice and innovative ideas for online learning. 

‘Moodle Competencies - A hidden gem in Moodle’.

This session was presented by Gavin Henrick which focused on elements of Moodle competencies. Some of the topics discussed included key competencies for sales representatives, programming competency-based education, as well as PSI Core Competencies. 

To begin, Gavin outlined thoughts from the Canadian Professional Sales Association including their framework diagram and CPSA’s professional sales conduct. Following this, he spoke about the Instructional Framework for Business and Information Technology, specifically focusing on programming. Then Gavin outlined framework domains, the rating system and compass activity for both assessment and visual report. Finally, Gavin explored competencies and Moodle, shedding light on learning plan creation, competencies in course and the competencies framework.

So, that completed series 2 of #MoodleMunch. We would like at add a huge thank you to Rob and all the gang at DCU’s National Institute for Digital Learning for hosting the Moodle Munch series. Looking forward to Autumn 2021 for series 3!
