I’ve been GASTA’d (Again) #ALTCSummit

After a full day of working behind the scences at the #ALTCSummit activities on Wednesday last week I also survived my second GASTA … and am now looking forward to my badge !

Honoured to be in the esteemed company of my fellow GO_GN Gastateers , Ada, Aras, Michael, Jo and Taskeen who all did an absolutely awesome job .. and of course we were all kept under control by the lovely Tom Farrelly and herded into position by my lovely ALT boss Maren Deepwell.

My ‘warm up’ act was strangely right at the end instead of first so by the time it got to me I was completely hyperactive but hey ho in for a penny in for a pound ..

Everyone else did their’s to time .. I just about got my last slide in before Tom kicked me out … It was such a giggle as expected. I managed to get across most of the stuff that I had hoped too but ended up screaming to the end in my usual breathless fashion… the recordings of the GASTA will be available openly in a few weeks but here are my slides in the meantime

What I did at #altcSummit

GASTA Presentation #altcSummit 2020

I’m really excited to be presenting at at the ALT Summer Summit 26th – 27th August 2020 Learning Technology in a time of Crisis, Care and Complexity #ALTCSummit this week.

I’m doing a GASTA presentation alongside colleagues from the most awesome Global OER Graduate Network GO-GN Network. The wonderful Dr Tom Farrelly, Institute of Technology, Tralee (ITT) will be doing his stuff to keep us all in line.

Gasta means “fast, clever, quick, smart” and in that spirit sessions will involve active participation from everyone in the audience as well the invited speakers giving their Gasta for 5 minutes each ~ALT

This is actually my second GASTA, so having done one in real life, I already know what I am letting myself in for but I have to admit I am kind of nervous doing it online for the first time and to be in such amazing company with all these really clever folks (Ada Czerwonogora, Aras Bozkurt, Michael Paskevicius, Taskeen Adam and Johanna Funk) from GO_GN (.. think of me as the warm up act 🤪) so I just I just hope I can do it justice.

So I’ll be finalising my slides for my Presentation today … oh and there may be the odd one or two Bitmoji floating around …
