Here are the slides from this morning’s keynote at ALT-C 2015.
There is also a recording of the talk.
Laura Czerniewicz is the Director of the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CILT) at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa. Previously the leader of UCT’s OpenUCT Initiative engaging with open scholarship from a southern perspective, she was also the founding Director of the university’s Centre for Educational Technology. She has worked in education for several decades as an educator, academic and strategist. A rated researcher, Laura’s interests include academics’ and students’ digitally-mediated practices, issues of inequality, and the changing nature of higher education.
I found this an interesting talk, lots of questions, but as Laura says, very few if any answers to the many problems she discusses in her keynote.
The main thrust of her talk was the importance of commons and openess. There is a conflict with market-led on the solutions.
I have been “messing” about with sketch noting at the conference and here are my notes from the talk.
