Open media

One of the things which has happened as a result of events all being online is that there are now more talking head videos, interviews, webinars and panel sessions to watch and review.

Here are some of mine:

I’m much chuffed to have won the Open Global Individual Leadership award

It’s an award presented to an individual who has demonstrated significant leadership and longstanding involvement with Open Education. A person who has made significant and clear contributions to the furtherance of the Open Education movement, whose contributions to Open Education have spanned regions and/or had a global impact.

I have also successfully renewed my Senior CMALT  to remain in good standing as a professional learning technologist. The assessor said it was

‘An impressive account of development activities and how they have influenced learning technology developments at Edinburgh.’  Which is very pleasing.

My CPD journey continues. I completed a microcredential Certificate in Decision Making from LSE before Christmas, and I’ve finally sent off my application for PFHEA.
