That mouthful is the title of a course I started to take last week--it's an internal AU course being offered by George Siemens a leading expert in the field. it's totally online so that we are practicing what we preach. Last week, Week 1, was an introducation to some learning theory through the following readings:
Social Networking (.pdf):
What is Connectivism? : A short overview of different theories of learning
The Unique Idea in Connectivism: Title sums it up - a comparison of theories of learning.
There was an Elluminate session to get us all up to speed with that technology and to help set the scene for the next seven weeks.
