I will be writing up summaries and reflections on the sessions I attended at the Durham Blackboard Users’ Conference 2012.

Blog posts

I will link through to the posts here when I publish them. You can follow me on Twitter too to get post updates.

As per last year, I’ll also link out to the blogs written by other delegates. Do let me know if I forget to add you.

Make sure you check Durham’s LT Blog for the links to all available presentations and blog posts.

Thing that stuck in my mind

Wow… almost every presentation included a YouTube video. That’s open learning if ever there was.

  • @jules_u : “Really interesting slant in Bb session – start with the NSS questions, how can we help students understand the assessment process?”
  • @malcolmmurray : “Openess is a threshold concept – it is as much about un-learning – Ray Land”
  • @sharonlflynn : “Connectivism, is asking for help with assignments on twitter plagiarism? asks @gconole. Equivalent to chats in the canteen.”
  • @alextronic : “If you have poor digital literacy skills, then your not going to get the most from a PLE”
  • @julianbeckton : “Longer term Bb appear to be planning a sort of educational social network. But definitely not Facebook. Dear me, no!”
