Future of Emerge - the clock is ticking....

March 24, 2009

At the last two F2F meetings there has been a lot of talk about continuing at least the online Emerge community and seeing whether it can "re-emerge" as something self sustaining. I have contacted privately those people (outside the support team) who expressed interest in helping to keep this going. But we are rapidly approaching the time we have ...

An Ada Lovelace legacy: women in (learning) techonolgy

March 24, 2009

There are many women in technology I admire. My field: learning technology is characterised, in part, by many female leaders.

Archive and Special Collections

March 19, 2009

A colleague has recently set up a blog for Archive and Special Collections at Leeds Met: One particularly interesting area, from my point of view, is work on developing machine-readable lists of the various collections/cataloguing and finding aids.   Keith and I have already discussed how we might use the repository and I intend to ...

Bimodal

March 12, 2009

An increasing tendency we seem to be seeing here in successive undergraduate cohorts is a bimodal mark distribution. Although I don't have any formal evidence, I have strong hunch that there is a correlation with disengagement in the lower part of the distribution. The question, as ever with correlations, is one of cause or effect. Are these ...

YouTube is skill in music

March 09, 2009

YouTube is blocking all music videos from its service in the UK from today, due to a disagreement with the Performing Right Society (PRS). YouTube has clashed with other media owners in the past too, and there seems to be no end to the disagreements that could be had between old and new media. Having been a full ...

Death of eportfolios?

March 06, 2009

I think so. My consultancy company has been developing interactive professional development frameworks for different UK universities. These combine the ability to input data against criteria with a constant micro and macro view. We believe that inputting against the framework is much more focused. This is a new innvovation we've just been delivering to a few of our recent clients. We did ...

Those who were in York in January or who read the ensuing discussions will know that there are moves afoot to ensure that the Emerge community presence continues in some form after the end of the programme. We have an offer from Oxford Brookes to host a follow on community and a gang of volunteers who are willing to ...

Finding evidence

February 26, 2009

There are a couple of things that make patterns distinct from other forms of design guidance. One is that they are routed in practice - they are not simply “good ideas” or theories (not that there is anything wrong with those) but they are drawn from real examples of things that have worked to solve ...
