Do you have the #knowhow you need?
This incredibly lifelife scupture was part of an exhibition at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Bilbao last summer. The need to protect and nurture the next generation is evident in the old lady's face and we can only speculate about her fears and hopes for the child in her arms. I found this very moving.
This image came to my mind today as I was thinking about writing this post to share the #knowhow project work to date. The project hopes to support you as you think about how best to contribute to knowledge creation in the wider community through managing your digital presence.
Of course there's an open community you can join here to explore our resources and raise your questions or join in with discussions. There's even a guide to navigating a G+ community if you have not participated in one before:
We are actively looking for Warwick people (staff, students, researchers, teaching fellows, administrators) who maintain a professional identity online in order to recognise the contribution you make to Warwick's online presence, evidencing our vibrant community of enquiry. We have a #knowhow badge for you! Our resources include practical tutorials for digital #knowhow, links to current thinking about open educational practices and a growing community of practitioners from other HEIs who are ready to share their expertise and experience.
Tomorrow (Thurs 15th June) I shall be at the TEL forum in the teaching grid with some surpise giveaways, I hope to see you there!
My virtual life is now a significant part of my teaching identity. I am a connected educator and enjoy collaborating with others across the world to improve the relevance of education for the future as I believe the challenges to come are some of the biggest faced by humankind. I learn lots from my students.
