In July I said:
You may have seen from my colleagues Lorna Campbell (In the meantime…) and Sheila MacNeill (Sideways) that the University of Strathclyde office for Cetis is closing at the end of the month. Things are slightly up in the air right now but we are hopefully the ‘Glasgow based supergroup’ will reform soon.
Unfortunately after inconsolable differences, Sheila getting a job at GCU ;) and my pursuit of a solo career, the reformation of the supergroup is on hold for the foreseeable future. When I started at Cetis I described it as the dream job and that it was largely that, although it got a little nightmarish towards the end. It was particularly a great joy and pleasure to work closely with Sheila, Lorna and Phil (not forgetting Cetis Comms team).
In the meantime I’ve been getting stuck in to other work:
- Association for Learning Technology (ALT) – this is in part a continuation of the work I did for the ALT-C conference platform (notes here), which was described by Stephen Downes as a ‘masterwork’, amongst other things looking at how ALT can continue to support it’s member community;
- The Open University (Open Educational Resources Research Hub) – have contracted me to develop a pilot evidence collection and display site. As part of this there is a strong data visualisation aspect which I’m looking forward to;
- ████ █████ (█████) – have contracted me to ███ █████ of their █████ ████ to see if ████ can be used to █████, which I am very █████ about.
There are potentially some other this in the works which I’ll mention when/if I can.
