It’s been a while since I last wrote a note in this blog. This is because I had been (and still am!) very busy making corrections in my PhD thesis. I was on a six-month leave from work to make the corrections, and should be finishing them soon. So, as from last week, I am back at OLnet (Open Learning Network) on a full-time basis. It’s exciting! The project has loads of research opportunities and offers a number of ways in which to get involved with it.
I have been working on a research project alongside some of my colleagues, Giselle Ferreira and Alexandra Okada, both of whom also work at the Open University and have some sort of research interest in OERs. We are in that phase of writing the drafts of the research project proposal; discussing ideas and building the communication infrastructure that we need to exchange our messages and our paper work. I plan to be more present here at the blog, as there’s lots to reflect upon when it comes to OER. This project that we are incubating is also filled up with interesting ideas and this blog seems to be a good place for reflection on all those things. Shall be back soon :-)
