The first GO-GN seminar finished with success

The feedback from the participants to the first Global OER Graduate Network seminar was reallly positive and enriching. The following points were higlighted In the wrap-up meeting:

  • Joined meeting with ROER group was really useful, specially their workshops on statistics methods, creativo commons, etc.
  • Students reported that the replaning of the PhD, and the different perspectives offered were really helpful.
  • Students reported that the PhD presentations helped them to Identify weak point on the research
  • Networking. Put faces to the names.
  • Some people were isolated in their research …and in the location. Here they find people that speak "in the same language" (interest topic).
  • Timing and combination with the other groups
  • It is face to face. And not online.

As a consequence of this work, different intereactions are happening. Share your experience on what the first event triggered in your research posting a blog entry!

live as you learn

I believe it’s important to live as you learn and want to see if we can start a conversation about that…. Let me take three examples:

  1. Have you signed the Cape Town Declaration on Open Education? http://www.capetowndeclaration.org/

 

  1. Have any of you ever used the WikiEducator? http://wikieducator.org

I know that there are many different tools available but I want to explore this possibility but wonder how to start….is it an idea to collaborate on a mutual project? ...should we suggest a webinar on this or what do you think?

 

  1. Have you published in open access journals? I believe it is a problem that most of the open journals have low impact factor, especially when you are a PhD-student. I have published in “closed journals” that turned out to be “hybrid journals”. Recently I contacted the two different editors and tried in this way to get the right to publish in parallel journals but the editors rejected. They pointed at the possibility to pay for parallel publishing in open access. But to me this plays in the hands of the “closed journals”. I find it ridiculous that journals like Open Learning are closed. Maybe we as a network of PhD students have the power to put pressure on editors and one suggestion is to take the initiative to write a letter to the editor of Open Learning? Please, publish your views on that…

It is a pleasure to be in Ljubljana attending the second GO-GN conference. We miss Bernard, Glenda and Deepak that coundn’t make it this time……

All the best
