Licenses can be a dry topic for some but have been key to my teaching. Any of my students and colleagues during the past twenty plus years know me as the teacher who was always pushing the use of Linux, Eclipse, Apache Emacs and other open source tools that use open source licensing. This is an important part of my practice and my tool set and remains so. Read on to get a view on how my teaching has changed to include more focus on open data and open practices.
The fact that this was led by David Wiley and George Siemens sealed the deal. Ever since I stumbled across their work a few years ago (more about that below) I have admired the work of both of these pioneers in open education.
You will also notice the ¨redundancy¨ of using Open in the title when it already says ¨MOOC¨. More below.
I was invited by colleagues of our Tecnológico de Monterrey en Zacatecas to share a keynote (Flipped Learning) and a three instances of a one hour workshop on Open Educational Resources. This was indeed an honour and I was also interviewed by a local newspaper (NTR Zacatecas) and that interview should appear in the Monday edition.

¿Cómo la ciencia de la computación puede impactar más en la sociedad? Con esa pregunta como punto de partida, alumnos del Tecnológico de Monterrey en Guadalajara y de la MacEwan University entablaron conversaciones a través de videollamadas en las que discutieron sobre apps que ayudan a resolver problemáticas sociales.
La dinámica fue parte del proyecto de intercambio cultural entre jóvenes estudiantes a cargo del profesor Ken Bauer, del Campus Guadalajara, y Cam Macdonell de la casa de estudios canadiense.
I was away for four days of classes last week but I left work for my #TC101 #TC1019 and #TC2027 classes. They shouldn’t miss my presence in front of the room since I’m not the focus of the class. Some of those students embrace that fact but some are still reaching to grok what I mean by this student-centred and flipped (in the sense of flipping roles) classroom.
I know, it is difficult, it is messy, but as my good friend (now I actually met her in person) Laura Gogia says it right on the title of her blog “Messy Thinking“. I was able to rename this blog to “Connecting is Learning” through her influence and that of many other amazing educators at (and not at but present through the wonders of Virtually Connecting) #OpenEd16 in Richmond, Virginia, USA.
This week I had the privilege to attend the 13th Annual Conference on Open Education in Richmond, VA, U.S.A. This post is to thank those that contributed to me being there. I will get to explaining the title below, read on please.
