Interim Programme Meeting
By uczajah, on 28 January 2011
The Interim Programme Meeting began with information on project documentation (we must submit our Interim Report by 21 February) and useful updates on accessibility and evaluation & synthesis – I will look at the document on “outputs” before writing the interim report. Materials from these sessions will be available soon.
In the afternoon, the OMAC strand projects had their own session. It was interesting to hear updates from the other projects – and good to know we are all feeling the pressure of a one-year project timeline.
In the OMAC session, we discussed the question of “community”, how an OER community in the area of HE learning and teaching can be developed and maintained, whether we have a sense that such a community exists. Interacting with one another’s blogs was one strategy suggested.
It was nice to make contact again with Richard, from Open for Business. We hope to meet up again to talk about common issues. This meeting was also the start of a week’s close collaboration with DELILA. We are paired together for evaluation and we share a critical friend. The train journey to and from Birmingham gave me a chance to talk through a number of issues with DELILA project director, Jane Secker.
