ALT is pleased to be offering a free webinar with Professor Martin Weller, Professor Patrick McAndrew and Dr Chris Pegler. Martin will share his views and experiences around openness and OER and link this to international research that he and Patrick are leading through the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation funded OER Research Hub. Chris will chair the discussion and also provide a brief overview of OER13 (Nottingham, 26-27 March 2013) a conference supported by the ALT Open Education SIG. More information about OER13 is available here.
Presentation slides and a recording of the session are now available from the ALT Repository.
