NDLR Dublin

NDLREarlier this year I attended the NDLR Fest with the ALTO Team @ Trinity College Science Gallery in Dublin.

This was a fascinating and inspirational display of a variety of Open Education Resource (OER) Projects.

The event was attended by approximately 268 attendees representing all subject disciples from all 21 partner institutions. A total of 103 watched the event online. 12 Project teams presented the outputs and experiences from the first round of LInC projects – these are available to view @ http://www.ndlr.ie/resources/ndlr_fest_2010.php.

The next UAL Learning Studio Event will take…

The next UAL Learning Studio Event will take place on Monday 23 May 2011 from 4.30 to 6.30 pm – this time in Room 418 at LCF’s John Princes Street.

It is open to anyone to join and participate in, whatever your role or current use or experience of learning technology. There will be a range of activities, and the approach is very informal – colleagues will simply be talking about how they are using a variety of approaches in their teaching and learning.

Monday’s event will include: Ollie Furlong sharing his recent findings on affordable options for lecture capture; Trams demonstrating hosted video editing and sharing solutions; Pete Cranston talking about the UAL Sandbox (a facility for staff to sample new tools & technologies); John Casey discussing ALTO; Chris Follows demonstrating Process Arts.
