OER13 pre-conference tweets

We are now only a few hours from the start of OER13, and I’m feeling quite excited! At the end of OER12, when Jonathan Darby gathered a group of us and suggested that we begin working on OER13 even though there was no official money to do so and we would have to do everything as volunteers, I had my doubts that such a thing could be pulled off. But here we are on the eve of the conference — with a venue, keynotes, presenters, posters, and most of all delegates.

We are hoping to record and make available all presentations. At the same time, we will be blogging on presentations, right here on this blog.

I thought it appropriate to include here the tweets discussing OER13, for a taste of things to come. Follow the link below — and hopefull see you in Nottingham! –Terese Bird, University of Leicester
