Okay, someone has to say hello… and it might as well be us here at OEG Connect. Yes, we hope to see more greetings here and let us know where you are connecting from, and what you are planning to do during Open Education Week.
I’ll say hello! I’m Lorna Campbell and I manage the OER Service at the University of Edinburgh.
We’re running an Open Education Week webinar on Tuesday 7th March, 15:00 - 16:00 GMT to celebrate a decade of open online course development at the University of Edinburgh. This webinar will tell the story of how we developed an open course creation workflow that has enabled us to share 100 free short open courses and over 1000 OERs over the last 10 years. Come and join our team of senior leaders, learning technologists, media producers, instructional designers and open educators to hear how we developed this unique open course development workflow and to discover what we learned along the way. Register via Eventbrite here: Open for Good - 10 years of open course development at Edinburgh University.
Hey Alan, I am nothing if not predictable! We’re always very happy to get involved with Open Education Week I might event sign up for one of your live from OpenEdWeek shows if I can sort out my diary.
I’m not going to lie, it has required a lot of trial and error to develop a workflow that really does embed openness at every stage of the course creation process, rather than just tacking it on at the end. It’s been a learning process for sure, but we’re very happy to share our experiences.
I’ve also just added our Open Media Bank, where we share our open MOOC videos, to the Asset Archive, along with an open textbook we created by re-purposing open licensed course content.
Hello from India. Our Foundation, KBR & HL Human Development Foundation and Hyderabad Institute of Technology & Management (HITAM) are organizing a 3-Day Virtual FDP on Creating Engaging OER for Engineering Education during March 8-10, 2023.
Hello everyone! We are excited about all of the events happening for OEweek. What a tremendous schedule!
Some of us were so excited that our OEweek events started a little early… I was super stoked to run an Open Pedagogy workshop, together with the amazing @RVOrtizRebecca Vasquez Ortiz from RLOE, for Leeward Community College also with some participants from Kapi’olani Community College, and others from the UHCC system, including @sunyeenSunny Pai, on Thurs, Mar 2. Both of these CC’s are fabulous members of CCCOER/OEGlobal and part of the Hawai’i Community College System.
This event was hosted by the extraordinary Wayde Oshiro@waydeo! I continue to be impressed with Wayde’s talent, dedication, generosity and the success of the open education work that he leads!
The next day, Wayde, Sunny, Rebecca and I all had the opportunity to present at the Hawai’i Student Success Institute (HISSI) on Fri, Mar 3. This conference was an incredible experience and opportunity to engage with some of the most passionate educators in the world.
Hello from Chatham, Ontario and St. Clair College. We have Library displays at each campus and three workshops for faculty this week. I am enjoying check out what other open practitioners are doing around the world and am joining some workshops offered by others including eCampus Ontario.
But, I am really replying to share this picture of my cat. Is is art imitating life or life imitating art? Either way, Puddin approves of my new bookends!
Hello from San Antonio, Texas, USA. I’m an OER librarian at Palo Alto College one of the five colleges of Alamo College District. I’m beginning my second year work in OE, and very new at OE. I was hired to help support the faculty transitioning to using open textbooks and materials. At times this is wonderful. Other times not so much. I feel a lack of guidance. Like what is my next step. So my hope is to find some direction.
I do not have a picture of my cat, so here is Callie, my comfort.
