I’ve not written for a while as I’ve been away on my hols and came back to the chaos that is the start of term! I also now have two blogs, as we’ve set up a blog for project DELILA, the JISC / HEA project looking at developing open education resources for accredited courses such as LSE’s PG Cert. I’ve written a write up of our start up meeting on Monday, and I’m really looking forward to working with the whole team, so do sign up for this blog if you are interested in the project. Others from the team will write on the DELILA blog, so I’ll continue using this blog for general interest items.
I seem to have been wearing many hats recently! Yesterday I was at the CLA’s open meeting, on a panel looking at the future of licensing and the international repertoire. It was a good chance to catch up with copyright colleagues. The venue, the Royal Geographical Society is fantastic, although it was slightly nerve racking taking to the stage!
This week ss orientation, so we’ve been really busy with all sorts of induction events at LSE. I’ve also been running a stand to promote our training portal to students as the one stop shop for all their training needs. Lots of fun, but hard work!
Finally, I’m helping to organise the CDE Conference in late October, so do consider signing up if you’re interested in supporting distance learners. Myself and Clare Sansom are coordinating the strand on supporting teaching and learning and we’ve signed up some great speakers including Joanna Newman from the British Library, Matt Lingard from LSE, Philip Butler from ULCC, and Michael Ashby from UCL.
