Thanks for your participation with Frontiers in Education, Jon!
It’s a fantastic journal, doing so well with its new inclusion in ESCI (Web of Science) as well. We’re delighted that you love the platform and peer review - we’re very proud of all the bespoke-built technical support that we offer authors, editors and reviewers for all Frontiers journals!
We’d love to hear from you for possible work with Young Minds too - please do contact us at email@example.com any time!
Welcome Xiangyang! I really enjoyed the time in Bangkok and it’s great that you are able to join us in this conference. Hope you learn a lot and thanks for your all your work supporting open education.
Glad to connect with you. Open Education practice is yet to reach a tipping point in many parts of Africa so to speak but the organization I work for (African Library and Information Associations and Institutions- AfLIA) is pushing hard at it and is open to collaborations.
Hello, everyone! My name is Sasha White, and I’m an instructional designer from the University of Manitoba in Canada. I look forward to participating in this conference and learning from all of you, as I hope to be one of many advocates of open education in our institution.
I’ve just read through all these introductions – what an amazing community, from such diverse backgrounds. Really very pleased to see you all here, and hope you are enjoying the programme. I’m from the UK and I work for UCL and UNESCO.
It’s nice to get the opportunity to engage with participants at several forums. This is Mais from the University of Technology, Sydney. I am a learning design and technology specialist.
Here is a photo of UTS campus with state of art buildings, but before you go there I invite you to experience an interactive H5P module for developing OER using renewable assessment. My colleague @Eseta and I are also keen to hear your experience with engaging students in generating OER.
Hi everyone! I’m happy to be attending my first OEG conference, and hope it is the first of many.
My background is wildlife conservation, and I’ve been an online educator for over a decade, initially for Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit and now with my own company, VerdantLearn - a startup founded on open educational principles that aims to empower biodiversity professionals to better monitor and protect wildlife and wildlands.
I ran my first open course a few months ago, with the support of the Open Education for a Better World mentoring programme. If you’re curious about my open education work, here are links:
Welcome Lucy and we hope you are getting much out of the conference experience.
Thanks as well for sharing your open education work, I’m bookmarking to come back and learn more (my career started in science, Geology, but I veered into education). I am impressed with the engagement and quality of hands on activities I see in your course, and am noting how you are making great use of Discourse (a tool that I feel like I am always learning as I go) as well as H5P. I need to explore Observable more, that is a new one.
Interesting that several people included H5P in their presentations. Maybe we should have a talk with Joubel, at some point. And/or @Learnful (several OEG participants are on the advisory committee, including @connieb).
Alan, OEGlobal’s use of Discourse was (and remains) a great source of inspiration for me to choose it as my own community platform!
I’m preparing to host a conference on Discourse for a conservation client next year, and I would love to chat with you about how to make best use its features, if you have time. I’ll drop you an email
Observable is best for data-driven interactive elements. In the GIS course I use it to demonstrate how maps look different depending on the spatial reference system you choose, but it also works well for allowing learners to explore datasets or statistical concepts
