Summer is (almost!) here and it’s time for another East Midlands Learning Technologists’ meeting! The venue, date and time is set… so… we’ll hopefully see plenty of you at the University of Nottingham on July 8th from 12pm for lunch with the meeting starting at 1pm.
The theme for the meeting is…
‘Open All Hours’
… all about openness, flexible delivery and shifting boundaries in education… and we need you!
Call for presentations
We’d like to have some PechaKucha presentations from our community – 6 minute presentations with images – where you tell us about ‘open’. Whether that’s involvement in production of Open Educational Resource, working on MOOCs, how you’re exploring informal / formal learning in your work, research or legal / policy in the area of openness as stories of the difference an open mindset is making in the curriculum across disciplines / institutions – we’d love to hear about them and help disseminate your work across our region / nationally.
Closing date for submitting ideas is 5pm on Friday 13th June 2014… submit your ideas using this form: http://goo.gl/B0LQod
