The ELESIG Ning site
Just come back from an excellent day in Birmingham - I get to such exotic locations! in my job as you can see - for the launch of a new special interest group for those interested in researching the leaner voice. There are moments in our area when things capture the imagination - the Internet was a major watershed, but (dare I say it) so were VLEs - they generated a lot of interest and excitement about their potential use within education. Focusing on the learner voice, the learner experience is I would argue another example, its definitely a topic which is generate huge interest. Both JISC and the HE Academy have supported work in this area. This new special interest group was launched today. The day was packed with really interesting discussions - will blog properly about it later but here’s a plug if you want to come ‘play’ join the ning site and watch out for future face to face meetings. Thanks to folk at Bradford, Greenwich and Oxford Brookes for setting this up - looks like being a really useful and valuable discussion space and cross sector resource.
