Marc Singer [Vice Provost, Thomas Edison State University, NJ) and I take some time out of the 2018 OE Global Conference to discuss the intersection of open education and recognising prior learning.  Marc outlines the types of transferable support mechanisms available for students, and how open informal learning might be translated into degree credit.  We also cover a number of reasons why institutions would become involved in this type of activity, and the student benefits to doing so.

The resources refered to in this episode:

Join me next time for an episode on OER and students!

Welcome back to another episode of The Other Fifty Weeks!  Cable Green reflects on not only the role of the Creative Commons organisation, but also provides advice on working with faculty and governments, and shares some of the newest directions for the Platforms, and Network.  

This was recorded in the lead-up to the Creative Commons Summit in Toronto, Canada, so the audio quality is not as crisp as usual.  However, the quality of Cable's contribution is unquestionable.

 - Join the Open Education Platform here

 - Follow Cabel Green on Twitter: @cgreen; and search for the Twitter conversation on the Summit via #ccsummit.

- Participate in the Creative Commons Certificate Program here

I'll hopefully be recording some more episodes whilst travelling, so I'll see you before thirty!

Welcome to Episode 8, featuring David Porter (CEO, eCampus Ontario), as we discuss 'strategic thinking, not strategic planning' and what this means for openness.  David shares some of the excellent open education initiatives at eCampus Ontario, including some student-focused activities that build transparency in course design. 

In addition to plenty of ideas that can be repurposed, David has provided some links so that you can engage with some of the stories and activities mentioned in the episode.

Until next time, remember that 'good ideas are everywhere; good collaborators are everywhere'.  Words to live by.

After a long hiatus, the podcast is back!  In this episode I talk to Johanna Funk (Research Associate and PhD Candidate at the Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University) about her practice.  Johanna works with remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory, which gives a very interesting perspective on open practices.

We talk about how openness can be used to inform processes when working with traditional knowledge systems, and the art of 'getting out of the way'.

At the end of the episode we do mention the University fo Hawai'i.  You can check out some of their work (led by Billy Meinke) here.  Not only are they sharing work, but also working openly with the global community (for example the current OER Workflow) which really exemplifies open practices.

The links promised in the episode are:

The conference referenced in the episode was the ODLAA (Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia) 2017.  I'll post a link to the papers once they are made available.
