Are you interested in open education & #OER (open edu resources)? The #OER18 conference is this week & even if, like me, you can’t be there in the UK in person, you can chat virtually with some people who are and get a sense of the conference, thanks to a group I volunteer with, Virtually Connecting: https://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2018/04/06/virtually-connecting-at-oer18-from-bristol-u-k/
@chendricks hmmm... i'm first interested about the current health of open education as an unfolding movement and it's scope. also, i'd love to hear about projects that excite you and your take on where things are headed.
of course, open education is evolving rapidly and ever more so. it's about to become so dynamic it'll be disruptive. already is but we just don't see how much the internet and free sharing has altered the way we interact and live our lives.
@jacobcammack sorry—been away from Masto for a few days!
I think the health of the movement is strong in one sense—lots of interest among many people. But in another sense, that interest is concentrated still among too few. There is a thriving movement among those in it, but to many that is not even on their radar. I still get puzzled looks often when I use the term. So there’s a ways to go on that.
