Presenting OBL4HE to the Content Advisory Group

Earlier this month, our project was given the opportunity by JISC to present to the Content Advisory Group. The group is made up of experts working with digital content from a range higher education institutions who provide advice to the JISC Content team. The group is particularly helpful in widening discussion around the context of digital projects. So, I gave a brief presentation on how OBL4HE had been coneived and how the practical work of the project was unfolding. The group’s questions were really helpful in tackling the conceptual side of the project, for example, considering the added value of using these technologies to promulgate object-based learning and unpicking the disciplinary perspectives on this method of learning. The discussion also highlighted the range of work developing within this funding round on 3D technologies and I now have some valuable contacts to follow up. Many thanks to the advisory group!
