My feet don’t have time to touch the ground at the moment, I am preparing presentations left right and centre. Tomorrow I am running a workshop with a colleague at Kings College London, Dr Stylianos Hatzipagos, who is also a fellow at the Centre for Distance Eduction like me. We are doing a lunchtime session on Finding and Evaluating Open Educational Resources. On Monday this week I was up in York – visiting the University of York and also York St John University. It was a great two days and as well as getting a chance to wander about the beautiful city of York in the sunshine, Maria and I also presented a lunchtime seminar about the work we are doing on the ANCIL audit at LSE. We also visited colleagues at YSJ to talk information literacy and get a tour of their learning centre, which has some great features such as a feedback wall! Another highlight was a visit to the King’s Manor library at York University, set in a Tudor building, which is just amazing and holds the collection for Archaeology, Medieval Studies and Eighteenth Century Studies.
Next week is going to be equally busy as I am attending the ALDinHE conference in Leeds, which is the learning developers conference. Again I will be presenting about ANCIL and of course the week after that is LILAC, when as well as being on the organising committee, I will be presenting a workshop. It’s going to be a busy start to April, but hopefully a lot of fun!
