UAL Learning and Teaching Conference 2019

Learning and Teaching Day 2019I enjoyed attending and presenting at the UAL Learning and Teaching Conference 2019.  It was held at London College of Communcation on 21st of March 2019 and the theme which ran throughout was  ‘Wellbeing’.

My session explored potential tensions between Open Education / Practice and individual privacy and “wellbeing” in various forms. The short description on the conference website has additional details and links to my slides.

You can now listen to UAL academics talking about how they and their students are using digital spaces for reflective practice, research, collaboration, showcasing work and more – @ Discussing Digital Pedagogies.

Most of the presentations to do with education took place on Saturday and included my new UAL colleague Dave White (Head of Technology-Enhanced Learning) with a provocative and thought provoking presentation entitled ‘What’s left to teach now that Wikipedia has done everyone’s homework?’ Videos of key presentations from Saturday are available at Livestream (you will need a Livestream account to view but that is free/easy to set up). A truly inspiring presentation was given by Jack Andraka ‘Citizen Scientist’ who told of his ultimately successful mission to discover a straightforward, cheap and effective test for early pancreatic cancer thereby saving lives Continue reading Wikimania 2014

Creative Commons

Creative CommonsI recently put together some slides for a discussion we had on UAL’s APP Open Education Practice (OEP) unit. This focussed on ‘Creative Commons’ licensing and showed examples of useful online resources and sites using ‘Creative Commons’ licensing – the examples link through to the live sites. The slides are available here. Absolutely essential reading on Creative Commons is John Casey’s “Creative Commons Licenses – are they right for you?” – which you can access at http://alto.arts.ac.uk/904/
