A new year and a new venture. I’m currently enrolled in the Open Education course hosted by David Wiley: http://openeducation.us/welcome and working my way towards some badges. I’ve begun a study group to work through this course with me: The OER Taskforce for the ESC Center for Distance Learning. We will earn badges together, and at the same time work on a document, that defines the various aspects of Open Education, which will be published for the college. We will also be presenting, as a group, at the Center’s upcoming conference and at the All College Conference–sharing our work.
