Sorry to have missed JISC Design Bash

September 30, 2011

It was a real shame (I’m rarely disappointed) to have had to miss the JISC/CETIS Design Bash in Oxford today. I was very much looking forward to catching up with progress on the LDSE and sharing the SOLE model iteration described in Madison-Wisconsin in August. In the end the meeting I had to attend would have done fine without me, but that’s the way things fall and “beggars can’t be choosers” (or as we say in modern parlance, “the salaried do as they’re told”).

Design Bash

I imagine there was a great deal of interest in Oxford today. The pressure on organisations to share learning designs, share practice, and share efficacies shows no sign of abating. I look forward very much to catching up as best I can with what’s on Cloudworks for this years event.


SOLE Model sessions at Madison-Wisconsin

May 12, 2011

The programme has been releasded for the 27th Annual Distance Learning and Teaching Conference at Madison-Wisconsin this August. It looks like a really fascinating programme and I’m very excited to be part of it.

I’ll be running a workshop with Kevin Burden on the DiAL-e and details will follow on that (www.dial-e.net) but on the SOLE model front I’m delighted to say that I have two sessions at Madison.

The Videoshare session, which I’ll post here immediately afterwards, is V1 on Wednesday 3rd at 4:30.

there is also a 45 minute Information Session (which will be a fairly interactive workshop) on Thursday 4th from 2:15-3:00 and is designated I-22

It’s a great looking programme, I’ll just have to remember to turn up to my own session! There doesn’t appear to be a conference hashtag# but Kevin and I will be using #dialeUS for our workshop and I intend using #SOLE2011 for my sessions.
