Wrap up for Session 1: Why open matters

These instructions are for your Monday, 22 June 2014.

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend!

The OCL4Ed courses are amazing international events. Already, our course has attracted participants from 23 different countries - an impressive international cohort!

Session 1 focuses on Why open matters in education and also provides the opportunity for learners to familiarise themselves with the learning environment before we tackle the complexities of OER, copyright and open licensing in a digital age. My passion for education is always rekindled when I read the reflections from educators around the world reflecting on why they teach. Thanks for sharing!

If work or family commitments have kept you away from posting to the course so far -- not to worry, you still have time to post one or two microblog contributions for Session 1 before we tackle the meat of the course. Don't be missed by your absence! Remember that you are free to work at your own pace and we post copies of all the email announcements on the learning console.

We would appreciate if you could spare a few minutes to complete the Fair and Reasonable Practice survey (if you haven't done so yet) because I would like to share results with the group within the next few days. This forms part of an international longitudinal open study of thousands of educators who are sharing knowledge freely for the benefit of society - we have collected thousands of responses to date and you can make this one more.

I'll will see you online and have a great week!
