The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education

The Guilded Age: Professional Learning Communities in Education | edo1-eportfolio | Scoop.it
By Walter McKenzie

A millennium ago, artists and artisans formed guilds to share expertise and support one another in highly-skilled professional practice. These vibrant learning communities sustained artistry and craftsmanship through the dark ages when centers of learning were exclusive and rare. Much like these medieval guilds, professional learning communities (PLCs) provide a new dimension to professional development as educators flock around high-interest needs and topics. By definition, PLCs

Form organically around immediate member needs and interests.
Allow participants to self-select their roles and contributions.
Offer opportunities to enrich and deepen understanding.
Include collaborative inquiry in the learning process.
Provide practice and risk taking in a safe, supportive climate.
Grow, morph, and disband as part of a life cycle.

When Walter McKenzie speaks about professional learning communities --- listen.  Walter is a very bright light. He's a pioneer in all things involving virtual communities of practice. He is also one of my mentors. Walter has taught me much over the years. Let him teach you a bit about PLC's.

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | edo1-eportfolio | Scoop.it

The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

 

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.
