Earlier this week I was invited to visit members of the BBC Knowledge and Learning team in Salford Quays, Manchester, to demonstrate my Situ8 app. I was part of a wider OU visit that included representation from the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi), Open Media Unit (OMU) and other colleagues, including our Head of Broadcasting Caroline Ogilvie. The visit was a great exchange of ideas and new innovations and we look forward to working with the BBC on these more in the future – watch this space!
IET recently hosted a visit from members of the Ministry of Education (Educational Technology Division) in Singapore: Dr Victor Lim, Mdm Soon Hong Lim, Mr Jeffrey Looi and Mdm Jean Phua. They were keen to talk to the authors of the Innovating Pedagogy 2012 report, including myself and Rebecca Ferguson (shown in the photo to the right). They met with a number of academics within IET and discussed several topics, including assessment and learning analytics.
