Collaboration and innovation in the open ALT 2016

  1. 1. Collaboration and innovation in the open: taking risks, sharing lessons and the importance of open educational practice. Teresa MacKinnon School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Warwick.
  2. 2. Into the unknown… “There are known knowns. There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns” Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of State for Defence, February 2002.
  3. 3. The WIHEA project team
  4. 4. The tools  Shared Languages@Warwick course  Shared Mahara group  Google Apps for Education accounts
  5. 5. Project design “…a form of flâneurism - the act of wandering described by Charles Baudelaire as a means to more fully experience the landscape or environment one finds oneself in. Many of us assume flâneur-like trajectories when we traverse our way across cyberspace, clicking through hyperlinks, sometimes happening by chance upon pages that interest us, and where serendipitous learning ultimately occurs. Heutagogic learning is essentially self directed and autodidactic, and at its most informal, may involve sense-making of the digital landscape by wandering seemingly aimlessly around it. But there is still a self-determined purpose underlying the actions of the learner.” Steve Wheeler http://www.steve-
  6. 6. Outcomes • Emphasis on process over product • Developing digital literacies whilst mediating a cultural transition • Interest led learning allows greater personal investment in problem solving
  7. 7. What next? • Further scope for double loop learning • Greater emphasis on peer to peer support and closer collaboration across roles • Embed and spread process into our institutional digital skills plans?
