First lecture of the year

HNAP lecture, 12/9/18

Notes on laptop? Check. Camera? Present, obviously. Bag of plums for distribution? Check. Students? Well, some of them. Even if they are members of uni staff on the ‘Humanities New Academics Programme’. Here we go through to Christmas, either way.

Getting ready for my lecture

Thursday 17th May 2018, 4.55pm (day 2,457)

Zagreb lecture, 17/5/18

The reason I was put up for another two nights in Zagreb after the Networked Learning conference was so I could come to give this lecture at the University. A few more people did arrive by the time I started… so hopefully my hosts thought the bother was worth it. I enjoyed it, anyway. Home tomorrow.

“It’s the Internet… stupid!”

Thursday 22nd January 2015, 2.45pm (day 1,246)

Lecture, 22/1/15

Manchester was dull, grey and non-snowy today but this blog is becoming quite Hebden-bound lately and I may as well prove that once in a while I do go to work. Here Simon Nelson, CEO of FutureLearn, boils down his philosophy of life into a few pithy words. He’s probably right.

Tea break, CPD workshop, Høgskolen i Bergen

Wednesday 9th November 2011, 10.25am (day 76)

Tea break, CPD workshop, 9/11/11

This is the job… You find some time to do a bit of research, write it up, hope someone reads it. You go to as many conferences as your limited travel budget will stretch to, you network a bit, you publish a book and try to promote it. You eventually get invited to some other conference where you meet a nice Catalan academic who works in Norway and you write a proposal and eventually get an invite to do the work and suddenly you’re quite big in Scandinavia (or at least, among a very select audience of Scandinavians). It’s quite hard work sometimes but it’s probably better than being, say, a traffic warden.
