Dominique-Alain JAN's profile picture

Mahara and Moodle advocate / Mahara French translator.

I am Director of ICT and a teacher of Economics at the Gymnase de Nyon - a further education college of 1400 students between 16-20 years old - in Canton de Vaud (Switzerland). Since 2007, in addition to my day-to-day teaching at the Gymnase, I have been lecturing on new technology and e-Learning methodology at the State's Teacher Training School (HEP) in Lausanne.

In my school, I am particularly active in alternative learning strategies and I have introduced a course about "Learning to learn". This is a programme given by three colleagues and myself, that helps students with a range of learning difficulties to discover and learn strategies for improving their way of learning and helping them to understand new methods of knowledge acquisition. Furthermore I have developed and I am maintaining our eLearning services on a Moodle platform with more than 45 lessons given in blended learning conditions (part in class, part distance learning).

Difficult to manage everything with a hectic back to school, the final assignement for H800 course (Technology-enhanced learning: pratices and debates) and the start of H808. Without talking about the weekly Geneva->London commuting.
Started H808 - The elearning professional course by The Open University. I will use this Mahara web site as the respository for the requested learning evidences (blogs, works, files, podcasts) I will be requested to create.
Arrived 10 days ago. Jet-lag is over and try to cope with IT work conditions. But the people are nice and their project are engaging.
Have been invited by the Australian National University (ANU) as visiting fellow from May to September
Being student, again, change my view about teaching.
I have catch up the two syllabus I am following @ OpenUniversity. My first work is behind me and I am working to finish the second one.
On Monday I moved to London for a couple of months (years ?). I also started my syllabus on elearning at OpenUniversity.
I sent my form to the OpenUniversity. Hope they will accept my thesis proposition
