FOS is here Day 1 Monday 17th of July 2017 #fos4l

Dear colleagues and friends,

Day 1 has arrived. We hope you will find this journey as exciting as we do and useful so that we can learn together about Flexible, Open and Social Learning and consider creative changes to our practices were we spot opportunities to enhance the student experience.

FOS is a collaborative event building upon and mixing up existing OER but also adding new and perhaps more playful ingredients (see creative commons attribution and about page) that foster inquiry-based and collaborative learning. Each day will be a new opportunity for discoveries. Our daily thematic suggestions are:

  1. Digital literacy and identity
  2. Flexible pedagogies
  3. Supporting learning
  4. Communities and collaboration
  5. Open education

You will be invited to use the learning triggers shared in 3 alternative formats as a starting point for your learning and exploration. The related activities are also there for you to consider.

You can work on your own or with others in the community but also within a small study group if you would prefer this. All activities are supported by a team of facilitators who will be there when needed. See all facilitators in the team page.

All action and interactions with happen in the FOS community. Just click here and you are there. Feel free to use the hashtag #fos4l on Twitter if this is where you would like to engage.
