JISC Netskills – free online seminars

JISC Netskills is running a free online seminar series, with David White, University of Oxford and Alan Cann, University of Leicester as the first confirmed speakers. Delivered entirely online, these seminars offer a convenient way to hear exceptional speakers exploring interesting and relevant topics concerning technology and education today.

In the first seminar on 21 June, Dave White considers “The Rhetoric of Openness”, exploring what openness online means from a teaching and learning perspective and looking at some of the tensions that arise when traditional organisations attempt to appropriate the notion of ‘open’.

In the second seminar on 27 June, Dr Alan Cann discusses his experience of “Supporting Researcher Engagement With Social Tools” over the last few years, arguing for less emphasis on technology and tools and more on the virtues of communities of practice and personal learning networks.
