My March ’21 in 10 Tweets

March has been full of adventure and as we near the end of the month lockdown rules here in Wales have been relaxed and I look forward to slightly more options to venture away from home… safely. Cause of (cautious) celebration. So this is my March in ten tweets: FemEdTech Curation and International Women’s Day 2021 It was my privilege to reflect on my fourth year of volunteering as a guest curator for 2 weeks…

Re-post: HUMANITY OF DATA.. #ALTC

This post was originally published here http://femedtech.net/published/humanity-of-data-altc/ . Inspired by this post by Frances Bell and the upcoming ALT Annual Conference I have been reading up on a this approach for “aspirational metrics” D’Ignazio & Klein (2018) use for their forthcoming book Data Feminism, and in particular their thoughts on the humanity of data, which I’m quoting below: We acknowledge the humanity of data We recognize that the transformation of human experience into data often entails a reduction in…

Reading, writing – and a budget line for time

Like many, I have been inspired by posts and a conversation about writing, in particular these posts: There are pieces of writing in the comments here that augment and change what was there before. New ideas have shown up. I see now it’s co-written in deep ways. https://t.co/2cCmJT3XxD — Kate Bowles (@KateMfD) August 15, 2019 blog post: Want to be a paperback writer https://t.co/8UVK8icPTS (following on from @KateMfD post) — Martin Weller (@mweller) August 15,…

Love letter: envelopes, postcards, stationary

I have collected all kinds of stationary, envelopes and postcards for about three decades and recently I have returned to my habit of sending mail, sending letters more often. I collect books about it, I have folders of postcards that I started collecting in the 1990s, a few that I love, a few that are souvenirs, a few that are waiting for just the right moment, just the right person, just the right occasion to…

Virtual teams: a special podcast edition

This post continues the series on openly sharing our approach to leading a virtual team – a joint project with Martin Hawksey (cross-posted here) for which we write a monthly blog post and this time recorded a podcast for you, too. What a year… With the transition to becoming a distributed organisation and one year of leading our virtual team under our belt, we reflect on the highs and lows, the good and the bad…

2018: my year in open practice and collaboration

It’s been interesting to reflect on the year in Learning Technology (previous post) and that has brought about the realisation that much of what I have done this year has been in open practice and collaboration (and all the better for it!). It’s also brought about another blog post… 🙂 Some of the work has been around governance and policy, for example in collaboration with Lorna Campbell, Martin Weller and Joe Wilson we produced a…

Virtual Team outtakes: using voice recognition for reflection

Since we started this monthly blog series openly sharing our approach to leading a virtual team,  Martin and I have often talked about how useful the process of writing the monthly posts in itself has become: it makes us make time to focus on things we may not otherwise dedicate as much time to, it prompts a joint process of reflection and improves communication. I’ve often written about how important reflection is to my professional practice, and I…

Which direction to take… researching alternative ways of measuring impact in Learning Technology

This is the second post about my current work on researching alternative ways of measuring impact in Learning Technology. Go back to the first post in which I have set out the context of my work and what I am particularly focused on. Alongside the practical work with the ALT Journal Strategic Working Group, I am pleased that my proposal of a short session ‘The quality of metrics matters: how we measure the impact of research…

A year in socks and shoes and stickers (2017: part 3)

This is the third and final part in this series of posts. If you’ve missed them, you can go back and read part 1 and part 2 of this series of posts, looking at my year Learning Technology in 2017. I’ve already covered some of the highlights of my work for ALT, big issues we’ve encountered in Learning Technology this year and talked about the professional community I am part of. As a Learning Technologist…
