The #OLDFF Series

Over the next weeks, you will see a new series of posts arrive on the Trent Online Blog. They will each come from a participant in the Online Learning Digital Fluency Fellowship (#OLDFF) which took place over the fall of 2021. The fellows participated in a broader Humanizing Online Learning project, which is an eCampusOntario funded experience. It includes collaborators from the University of Windsor, Mohawk College, Brock, OCADu, Nipissing, U of T, and of course, Trent.

As ‘doodled” by Brock’s Giulia Forsythe in the image above, you can see that through the fall we held 8 weekly get-togethers where educators from all of the institutions discussed some pretty meaty topics (and produced a pretty epic Google Slide deck). The broad aim was to try to crack things open here and there to let some more humanity into the experience.

So stay tuned to the blog over the coming weeks as you will see 10 new posts, one from each Trent representative in the fellowship. We’ll start tomorrow with a lovely look at vulnerability and failure from Amanda Paxton. We hope you enjoy the posts.

And, if you want more of this kind of thing, you can see what our #OLDFF counterparts from the University of Windsor came up with here on their blog as well.
