BEST PRACTICE IN OPEN EDUCATION starts by hearing #oep advocates like Catherine Cronin explain how her work complements this essential community value. I captured Catherine in a half hour recording and asked for her insights about making Open Education Resources part of my work.
Open Education Resources enhance online communities of practice and they also improve the academic work I do at third level in the Limerick Institute of Technology. Catherine shares several deep insights during this fast-moving Congversation. Several of Catherine's observations will complement the Ideas theme of the ICT in Education Conference in May 2019. The thoughts also fit into the Community theme of the 2019 Congregation.
