Launch of PoetryFeedHE

Hi Everyone,

Following on from a webinar that I was involved in a few weeks ago about poetry and education (https://tlcwebinars.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/sam-illingworth-reflects-on-his-tlc-using-poetry-in-teaching/), +suewatling and I are very proud to announce this new initiative: PoetryFeedHE. Every Friday lunchtime we aim to bring you some poetry and thoughts around how it links to higher education. We would love to hear your opinions and welcome all comments on the blog. :-)

Thanks also to +Chrissi Nerantzi for encouraging us to do this!

Hi everyone,

+Sue Watling and I have created a new resource for people in higher education, a Friday lunchtime poetry feed. :-)

The first post goes live tomorrow and I will post a reminder then, but all thoughts and comments are welcome, especially in terms of creativity!



MMU is hosting the British Science Association’s Science Communication conference this year from June 18th-19th. As part of this event the Salutation pub will be hosting an afternoon of activities on Wednesday 17th June. There is the opportunity for the creative community to display their projects via an Innovations Showcase. Is this something that people would be interested in? Please could people let me know by the end of next week so that I can begin to plan. :-)

Thanks all and have a super creative week,

Sam

A Google Hangout to discuss the notion of 'Collaborating', to share best practices, and to have a general chinwag with other participants of the BYOD4L experience.

Here is a blog post on the importance of failure and how to communicate it, inspired by today's @BYOD4L events: http://tmblr.co/Zkmv1n1aaXEIU

This was the outcome of the Google Hangout on the topic of Communicating for BYOD4L January 2015. Sadly no one turned up to the Google Hangout, except for the UPS delivery man at a rather inopportune moment, thus causing me to cancel the previous event, and instead record this short discussion on effective communication.

This is a very short introductory video to myself and my role as a facilitator at BYOD4L in January 2015. :-)
