@nashman as a library professional, I’d be keen to hear your thoughts about the value of the Learning in a Digital Age courses as a potential support resource for the clients university librarians serve.
P2PU have a great initiative called learning circles where they collaborate with public libraries in providing face-to-face support for open online courses.
Could the learning circle model be implemented at our university libraries? It would be amazing if we could run international cohorts with learning circles at university libraries around the world.
In addition, there are a growing number of OERu partners that will recognise or issue formal academic credit for the LiDA courses including Thompson Rivers University (Canada) Thomas Edison State University (USA) and Otago Polytechnic (New Zealand). What is the likelihood of more universities around the world recognizing or assessing locally for formal credit towards degrees?
Keen to hear your thoughts, and of course ideas from any other library professionals engaged with Learning in a Digital Age.
