Profile Information

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.
