We're delighted that and have arrived in Galway, all set to facilitate the "Marvellous Mapping" Visitors and Residents workshop here at on Friday -- an event sponsored by and offered as part of Open Education Week #openeducationwk
The workshop will explore the Visitors & Residents concept and give educators an opportunity to map their own practices and to reflect on overall approaches to teaching, ways of working with students online, and the relationship between the formal institution and online culture.
