3 week SCoPE Seminar on OER


(I swore I said I wasn’t doing any talks until June, when I head back to Utah for my first trip to the TTIX conference, but somehow I’ve managed to get 3 into my schedule in the next 4 weeks. Aye carumba!)

Luckily, the first, this three week seminar on Open Educational Resources for the SCoPE community that I’ve agreed to lead, will hopefully involve a whole lot less of me blathering away (though inevitably, there will be some of that, mostly in the initial Elluminate session at 11am PST this morning) and a whole lot more interesting discussion amongst ALL the participants. At least that’s my plan, and I’m sticking to it!

Not knowing ahead of time who is going to show up (nor what they are hoping to get out of it,) I’m mostly going into this without a lot of expectations; sure, I have some goals (like promoting open content as simply part of the good practice of network learning, and the idea of empowering individuals to just share already) but at the end of the day I’m willing to go where ever the conversation leads. So no matter what your level of experience with OER, I hope you’ll consider joining in. At the very least, there is an RSS feed for the discussion forums if you want to sit back and watch. – SWL
