OU China Delegation

Last week we hosted 28 delegates from OU China. Pal Edirisingha put together a great programme for them; covering aspects of our research in ILI, as well as presentations from people across the university. This included Adrian Beck talking about the use of iPads in Criminology, Phil Wood talking about creating ebooks with iBooks Author, and Dylan Thomas talking about Problem-Based Learning. I ran an all day workshop on Learning Design on the Tuesday.

Ming Nie in our team did an amazing job of interpreting and Terese Bird worked quietly behind the scenes to ensure that the technology worked. So a great team effort!

There was plenty of opportunity for interactivity and we had some interesting discussions. The next two weeks they are visiting the OU UK, and then finally the Institute of Education. I hope they found the visit useful and that this is the start of some on going collaborations.
