OU sector drop-in: report and next one

When you’re having a nice chat and some Canadian guy gatecrashes

Yesterday I ran the first OU sector drop-in. The aim is to see if we can gather OU expertise and offer support to others who are attempting the online pivot.

I deliberately didn’t record this one because it was a bit trial and error (mainly error on my part) and also I thought people may want to speak freely. But I think I will record later ones for those who can’t make them. This one was general, so people could ask any question, but we decided to theme later ones. I’ve set up a google doc so you can add suggestions for themes, format and useful links if you want:

The next session will be Wednesday 1st April 3-4pm UK time (I think the clocks go forward in the UK this summer, so check time in the handy widget below. At this stage I’m lucky if I know what day it is).

The topic will be Student Support for half an hour and then general questions for half an hour. Same link:

I’ve got these scheduled every Wednesday at the same time until the end of April. Once again, OU colleagues, associate lecturers and students it would be VERY helpful if you could drop in. Reminder though this is not for supporting OU staff, but rather those in other institutions. Hope to see some of you online on Wednesday!
