    • shared innovation™ Some questions for you What is the most referred to text in first year undergraduate computer science courses in the UK? Based on pedagogical approaches, what are the recommended resources required to teach an emerging subject in a new department a University somewhere? before we go any further, I want to ask you guys a few questions ... that might help illustrate some of the things im going to talk about ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/takomabibelot/2206414180/
    • shared innovation™ Why can’t we answer these questions? http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobloo17/188697388/
    • shared innovation™ Why can’t we answer these questions? is it because the the data doesn’t exist? http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobloo17/188697388/
    • shared innovation™ if the data exists then its within individual institutions data exists within institutions across a myriad of internal systems sometimes even across departments http://www.flickr.com/photos/97534175@N00/2460602770/

    • shared innovation™ Why have we ended up with silos? product of close world thinking closed world decisions, solve the immediate problem for ourselves. only interested in the data that we have and control. in a way we didn’t have any choice ... it was a product of the problems we were trying to solve at the time structure on the fly vs structure up front the world has changed and so too has the problem...

    • shared innovation™ what is open world thinking ... we’ve seen historically that there is this ‘inexorable movement’ away from change the way you think about building systems ... win is that when you want to integrate with them its so much easier. “Openness tends to be an inexorable movement through time” http://www.flickr.com/photos/mmmmmrob/496694726/
    • shared innovation™ open world thinking is not about technology its about a paradigm shift in our understanding of how we need to solve. problems and mitigate the ‘political’ risk within institutions. thinking about how to ensure that the data we design is valuable to someone other than us http://www.flickr.com/photos/65193799@N00/515399703/ and

    • shared innovation™ linked data movement is publishing data in a agreed form and through openness others can now come along and build new services and applications on that use this data. design for appropriation ( architecture of assembly ), structure up front vs structure on the fly so design data at the right level of granularity for reuse - too complex and no one will understand, too vague and you can’t extract meaning from it. “Linked Data is the Semantic Web done right and the Web done right.” Sir Tim Berners-Lee
    • shared innovation™ Openness of Description critical mass ... usage stats across the nation in a subject ... you wouldn't have to do any extra when you zoom out of Having an agreed way of the institute to a consortia describing certain kinds of or to national level ... data is important.

If you knew what the learning requirements for each course where and the teaching styles that information could be presented to students through applications like Zephyr. You could also build up a lot of information about the different styles of teaching within an institute, across departments. Or further afield ... you could contrast the different teaching styles for Programming Courses across the UK. Image Credit goes here
