Excerpt: This is an interview I did with Peps Mccrea earlier this month. We talked about OpenPlan and the plans Peps has for its development. I found out about OpenPlan through Twitter and a specific tweet by Laura Kirsop: someone else I need to interview soon. We move through the concepts of iterative design, UX design; Learning Design; RCTs; Wenger’s Communities of Practice; the ResearchEd conference coming up in September 2013; ASE TeachMeets; Educational Startups and a much more. In my latest series of interviews I will now usually include a transcript for those wanting to read the interview rather than listen. I hope…

L4L News Playlist

Posted on by leoncych in advisory, Continual Professional Development, databases, Digital Media, distributed networking, Educational Change, Innovation, News, podcasting, teachmeet | Comments Off

I have now put all the 26 L4Lnews broadcasts in one playlist – I’ll be adding to these with a full searchable index later in the year as part of building searchable data that can be extracted from the broadcasts so I can reference them and for academic research purposes. Every broadcast I do now has a trail of data to hep build a picture of CPD activity in the UK at these times.
