Last week Emma and I presented for the first time on our Arcadia project to develop a new curriculum for information literacy. We had a good reception at the JISC-RSC Yorks and Humberside Learning Resources Conference and it was great to catch up with new and old friends who were attending. Our presentation from the session has now been viewed over a 1000 times and it is on SlideShare.
I’m also excited to report that this is the first in a line of presentations we are doing. Next week we’ll be presenting at LSE at the first NetworkED seminar series that the Centre for Learning Technology are hosting. I was pleased to discover yesterday that we have funding for this series from LSE’s Annual Fund and so we will have a series of speakers coming to speak about technology in education. LSE staff can book a place are next week’s event via the training system but those outside can watch the session live as we’re planning on live streaming. Further information about how to join the session remotely will be available from the NetworkED web page. I’m getting a little nervous now!
On a different note, tomorrow I am presenting a workshop at the University of London Centre for Distance Education conference. The topic for tomorrow is open educational resources and I’ll be running a workshop with colleagues from Kings College London about the challenges and opportunities that OERs present. This will be based on the DELILA project that I managed.
