Book of abstracts and posters presented at The Open CETL Conference on the 24-25 September 2008 which was held at The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK.
The Open CETL is a collaboration of the four OU led Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, established in 2005. Over the past three years the Open CETL has been addressing such broad issues as:

  • Assessment for learning
  • Challenges in technology enabled learning
  • Practitioner development
  • Integrating teaching, learning and support
  • Assessing practice-based learning
  • Building subject communities

Under these broad themes the CETLs have sponsored innovative practitioner projects that have allowed scope for blue skies thinking, exploration and innovation.

Sharing good teaching and learning practice
The 3rd Open CETL Conference, “Building Bridges”, builds on two previous successful conferences attended by 280 colleagues from across the University. We promise an exciting conference programme, including keynote presentations from Geetha Narayanan, founder and Director of Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in India and Denise Kirkpatrick, PVC Learning and Teaching. The focus for this year’s conference is practitioner engagement.

The conference programme will encourage active participation, reflection, debate and discussion through a variety of thematic workshops, individual and panel presentations, poster and simulation sessions.
