I’ve been involved with the launch and re-launch of two networks (or communities of practice?) at Leeds this week and last week: the re-launch of the Learning Technologists Network, lead by James Little (fellow blogger, ocTEL participant, and Sheffielder!); and the (soft) launch of the Online Distance Learning Network for colleagues involved in ODL provision, which just now seems to be gathering momentum. I’ve found both really helpful – it’s great to meet other people at the University involved in these kinds of activity.
At the request of our Faculty I also gave a presentation today for colleagues interested in ODL – the slides (I didn’t quite get time to turn it into a Prezi) are available on Slideshare and embedded below:
