Summer 2020 Roundup

When 2020 started (and it seems like a long time ago now) who could have predicted what it would bring?

One of the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic for GO-GN is that our normal business model (based around the annual workshop at Open Education Global) is upended. We had in fact been planning to extend our face-to-face activity this year with a seminar in London ahead of OER 20, but this wasn’t possible either. Our ‘online pivot’ has involved taking more activity online and rethinking the ways we interact with members a little. This has seen more webinars, more online hangouts and plans for a three day web conference in the Autumn.

It’s a shame not to be able to meet in London or Taiwan this year, but sometimes it’s good to explore other possibilities. Everyone will surely appreciate the next time there’s a physical meeting.

In the meantime, there’s a bunch of other stuff going on and a few of our own network outputs on the way…

  • Look out for the Research Methods Handbook in the next couple of weeks! This guide to research methods draws on the experiences of network members who have shared their insights into the use of different methodologies in an open education context. We’re just putting the final touches to the artwork and layout.

Recent work by network members that is likely to be of interest includes:

Be sure to check them out!

Finally, let us know if you have activities that you would like to be given a boost through the network going forward… We also have some other ideas for new things we can do with network members, but they are still ‘top secret’…

PS. If you’re still waiting for a GO-GN luxury penguin get in touch as we can now arrange access to the campus at The Open University where we have the stash…
