Early thoughts and common features from DIAL evaluation of pilot projects:The DIAL projects provide opportunity for personal reflectionson personal roles and emerge from long-standing challengespeople want to tackle, and perhaps up to now have not hadthe time or resources to attend to them:• Teachers’ fear of learning in public. (Online reflective practice)• Dealing with the discomfort of making curricular resources and information public. (Open educational resources/practice OER)• Anxieties relating to presenting oneself online. (Professional open/online identities)

Early thoughts and common features from DIAL evaluation of pilot projects:…. there was a growing feeling among projectleaders that DIAL’s aim to produce ‘resources’ wasworth exploring.Among some there was a transition from seeingresources as handbooks or hand-outs towardsseeing them as primarily residing within the newawareness and expertise of their communities,whilst also finding expression in certain onlineartefacts and practices.
