The video can be seen alongside others from the LTA Open Lecture series and annual conferences on the EDU Vimeo channel.
In this, the first Open Lecture of 2012-13, Geoff Rebbeck explores contemporary ideas on the emergence and use of personal learning space, and the challenges successful use make to curriculum design and student learning behaviour. He challenges some of the thinking and conclusions in Dr James Atherton’s Open Lecture last year. The lecture concludes with consideration of how students might develop a publication on ‘the rounded-self’ in addition to the award of a degree and so develop a personal, distinguishable commercial reputation for the world, for every student.
Geoff taught at Thanet College in Health and Social Care where he developed the role of e-learning specialist. He was awarded the National STAR Award for FE teachers for Innovation category in 2009 and a BECTA Future Learning Award by BECTA the following year. He now works as an LSIS associate and for JISC in a freelance capacity and as a trainer and coach in e-learning.
The next Open Lecture in Learning and Teaching will take place on Wednesday 7 November in Queen Anne Court 080 from 17:00-18:00. Professor Jonathan Garnett (Middlesex University) will speak on: “Work Based Learning: Opportunities and challenges for higher education institutions”
