Having been involved in all of the OER Conferences (starting in Cambridge 2010) I feel like it’s evolved into something quite different from where is started (and that is a good thing in case you were wondering). What started out as a conference mostly about “resources” has become a conference where we explore what it means to be open.Read more "Open is Messy & That’s OK. #oer16"
I feel a little bit like the OERxx Conference has perhaps come of age. My Take on OER15.Read more "Open Up!"
So it’s been almost 4 weeks since OER14 and I thought that it was time to reflect on what was achieved from the perspective of a committee chair. But before that a bit of history……….. So where does this story begin? Well my love affair with OER started in 2009, but we won’t go back […]Read more "OER 14 – A Co-Chair Perspective"
March 10-15 2014 was a significant week for me. It is the only week of the year where I don’t have to keep promoting Open Education. This may seem odd, particularly because that week was Open Education Week, but i spend most of the year promoting open education and this is the week where I […]Read more "Open Education Week – My Experience"

This opening sentence wouldn’t be out of place in a blog about attending a […]Read more "An Open Marriage"

But I suppose that’s a benefit of a MOOC – that there’s no pressure to perform, conform or attend, hence I am a week behind the majority of active participants. But I also think that the supposed benefit is also a potential […]Read more "#edcmooc – Late for Class, a MOOC Musing."
OK so here I am, MOOC number 4 (well more like 3.2). The previous MOOC I enrolled on to just didn’t work out for me (see previous blog post). The interesting thing is that I didn’t feel guilty or anything like that. My only query was whether I needed to formally tell anyone – but […]Read more "E-Learning & Digital Cultures MOOC #edcmooc"
I have undertaken 3 MOOCs over the last 18 months, partly to scope any potential MOOC development ideas and also to explore the concepts and theories behind MOOCs, but also for my own professional development. My most recent MOOC sign up is the OLDS MOOC – http://www.olds.ac.uk/ which is the JISC funded MOOC led by […]Read more "MOOC Musing"
I passed! But what does it really mean? I am intrigued by the trend in MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) so I decided to take the Google Powersearch one. On reflection I have been wondering whether it was worth it. Firstly I considered my motivation, if I am honest I wasn’t motivated by the subject […]Read more "MOOC’S – MY PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE."
