I have created and licenced an Open Toolkit for Artistic Learning. I’d like to organise a public event within which to present and run this Open Toolkit that will attract like-minded peers. I’ve heard that “unconferences” are ways of organising such participatory events, but I’m not sure what unconferences are, or how to find out […]

Tutorial reflection: After the tutorial, I found that my existing open toolkit on rebuild confidence has limitations: My practices each use the same model, and although they are different activities, as Professor Neil says, the participants are more like ‘icebreakers’ and don’t really get anything out of them. I think my theme and content were […]

Chapter 2: (Un)Defining a Camp or Unconference An unconference may at times appear to be chaos in motion, but it is this distinct lack of structure that makes an unconference both a novel experience and a success. OST: Open Space Technology The idea was from a man who was called Harrison Owen. Like the hotel […]

What a BarCamp? FISh model of Collective Inquiry into Unconferences. Questions and My findings: (my notes) From reading BarCamps and Unconferences and handbook; Focus: 1/ Find out what a Baramp is? BarCamp, is an ad-hoc “unconference” born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos […]

Solving Problem Scenario: I have been asked to research, design, run and document an ‘Open’ workshop that teaches an aspect of my practice to a group of peers. I’m not sure what a ‘practice’ is, or if I have one! How can I figure this out? I’m also unsure about what ‘teaching’ this in the […]

After reading Chapter 1 of Grootenboer, Peter, Christine Edwards-Groves, and Sarojni Choy. Practice Theory Perspectives on Pedagogy and Education: Praxis, Diversity and Contestation, I got following ideas about society and practice. 01/ Pre-reading reflective thinking: In this book, the related dual perspectives of pedagogy as a teaching practice and pedagogy as a practice of up-bringing are both […]

Today we had a wonderful experience in the Courtyard Studio space at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. And it made me have a deeper think of Educational  Toolkits. Actually, we’ve talked about ‘Toolkits’ for nearly two weeks, but what are toolkits really? As what in our handbook: Toolkits – generally speaking – will provided a learner with almost* […]

In this Tuesday’s sprint learning process, we came into contact with the concept of art assignment. And here we got a key topic: The learning is what’s important, rather than the learning’s outcomes. Content review We all finished the art assignments we needed to do last week, the process was we found an OER website […]

Class Assignment: D-I-Y Learning Learning Theory The assignment which I chose was Learning To Love You More (LTLYM) . From the website of LTLYM, I selected the task of No.28: Edit a photo album page. It asked the participants who decided to join in it to edit a photo album page. Take a piece of […]
