2018 Highlights

January 2018

Bring Your Own Device for Learning #BYOD4L

I was thrilled to be part of the facilitation team for the Community edition of #BYOD4L that ran from the 15th – 17th January 2018. This is always one of my highlights. Here is my introduction below.

Some of my reflections can be found here https://padlet.com/Debbaff/byod4l2018

April 2018

I attended the second of our residential courses at Lancaster University for my PHD course in April.  It was a particularly exciting event as it coincided with the 10th Anniversary of the E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning programme ( we are cohort 10). Its so lovely to see all the happy smiling faces below …. I get such support from these wonderful people …

I also went to OER18 on the 18th and 19th April in Bristol this year.  I managed to grab some selfies with some more wonderful people …

I’m also delighted to say that I won the Kaltura prize for one of my little scribbles ! Whoo hoo … a box containing lots of goodies that are still proving very useful …
