Opening Pandora’s Box at Coventry

Kiss Me Deadly's Pandora's Box

Yesterday I spoke with a faculty cohort at Coventry University about creating their own portfolios. This group was part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Higher Education (or PgCert) course led by Martin Jenkins. PgCert provides professional development for faculty and staff, and this cohort will be building out a portfolio as part of the process. This is exciting because it builds on what Chris Long calls “online scholarly presence,” which provided a great frame for my discussion. Not sure it was recorded, but I’ve included the slides below that link to the various resources I discussed during the short presentation if you’re interested.

This was also exciting because it’s the precursor to a longer trip I’ll be taking to Coventry next week to talk to a number of staff, faculty, and students about opening up the Pandora’s Box that is Domain of One’s Own on their campus. I’m not saying they’re going to be running the very first Domains project in the UK at Coventry University through the Disruptive Media Learning Lab….at least I’m not saying that just yet 🙂 Who knows, there may even be a 90s computer lab/living room in our future!

    If you’re in cov want to come up Leicester way for a bit?

  2. I don’t think it was recorded but it was great to hear about the Domains project from you Jim. I’ll see you at a workshop next week; there will be questions.

    If you venture Leicester way then I recommend asking your hosts to take you to Kayal.
