On Wednesday we were lucky enough to have Dr Richard Hall, from de Montfort University, come and present a seminar on autonomy and the read/write web at my work. Richard managed to hit the balance just right, I felt, between catering for those who are interested in the theoretical and socio-political angles and those with an interest in application and practice.
You can view the slides here (without video clips).
On Thursday I spent the day at my Faculty’s Learning and Teaching Conference, and was pleasantly surprised with the focus on play spaces, creativity and ‘messy’ learning. I presented an introductory session on using games to support learning, which seemed to go well (in that I no one left half way or was physically sick). My presentation is available here.
