This video was made as an alternative to powerpoint slides to support a conversation between myself and Frances Bell at the JISC Innovating e-Learning Conference. We held a session in Elluminate on Friday 18th November and had a great conversation with the audience.

I have made a text version of the audio 0 available as a word documentand a pdf document with links to background information.

The video is informed by my work over a period of 20 years in the past as an IT trainer, Librarian supporting information literacies of distance learning students at the University of Leicester, a Learning Technologist on the DIDET project at the University of Strathclyde, and as an e-Learning consultant working on JISC funded projects such as Learning Literacies for a Digital Age LLiDA, UKOER Synthesis and Evaluation, Transforming Curriculum Delivery Through Technology, Institutional Approaches to Curriculum Design, and the new programme Developing Digital Literacies.

It also talks about my experience on the amazing DS106 course which is quite simply 4life. I hope it explains why and I hope it makes you think of joining in. The video contains work made during ds106 by me and my family and the ds106 community. I love the way the ds106 homepage came right in the middle and stands as the graphic for the video. Not intentional…
