Today and tomorrow I’ll be working with a group of academic staff here at NUI Galway as part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education here in CELT. Of course it’s very dangerous to ask someone who’s *just* completed their PhD in open education to talk about… open education 😉 So, I’ve decided simply to start with a few questions, curate a small collection of resources to share, and see what resonates with the individuals I’ll be working with. This post is just to share resources on my list so far — if you have any suggestions for additional resources that you have found helpful in working with staff, I’d love to know what works for you. I’ll post again after the two sessions are finished, to share what I’ve learned.[UPDATE 12-April-2018] What a wonderful two sessions with academic staff discussing open educational practices, in the broadest sense. Below are the resources that were referred to or discussed in detail.
