First step is the longest

September 7, 2015 in communication

Greetings all

I am just taking my first tentative steps into my new Open Education Working Group Coordinator role after a late summer holiday.

My aim is to continue the excellent work done by Marieke, and looking forward to support from my co-workers Elena Stojanovska  in Macedonia (writer of Open Education Macedonia) and Javiera Atenas in London. And maybe some other volunteers soon?

This week I am at the ALT-C e-learning conference in Manchester UK, and I shall of course be hanging round the OER sessions. Look forward to seeing some of you there.The ALT-C theme this year is Shaping the Future of Learning Together and that seems a good motto for this Working Group: Shaping the Future of Open Education Together.

In that theme it will be nice to have a wider range of country postings – especially from the Global South – but there is plenty of room for thematic postings, or postings about one education sector – schools, adult learning, etc. No one should feel that they have to cover all the Open Education bases in any one article – that is too daunting a task these days.

Anyone with a research result that they are bursting to tell the world about – let us know!

Best wishes
