Last day of our retreat – it’s been very productive. Having Bruno here has been good as we all head out for a daily walk
After a hard day discussing REF impact, Bruno crashed out.
Good day deciding our key messages & gathering evidence today
We have to complete an impact case for the REF and managed to get some funding to come away for a week to complete it in one hit. We have booked this cottage in Gloucestershire so arrived today (with Bruno) ready to talk impact & evidence
Up to Birmingham for training session today – was a foggy old day
I presented about OER today at a launch of a collaboration between the OU & Coleg Cymraeg to release bilingual resources. The Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams, spoke before me & was very interested in open textbooks. So a good day’s work
Did keynote this morning then managed a couple of museums before heading home
I am giving a keynote tomorrow so flew to Amsterdam this evening & was driven to Rotterdam. It was about 10pm by the time I got into the hotel, so quick cup of tea then bed
Jesse Stommel & Sean Michael Morris of Digital Pedagogy Lab were on campus today so I grabbed a selfie along with my colleague Simon. Beards compulsory
Had a day in meetings & presenting then a few of us went to the Keg for some fine steak. We got a hotel sorted but at about 3 times the price – I expect some wrangling will commence with the travel agent when we return.
