Update 02 (2 April)

Since the last update we’ve been chasing down a few recipes (thank you to everyone who has volunteered a contribution).

We also had our first (and hopefully last) Zoombombing, so apologies to everyone who was affected by this. If you are using Zoom semi-publicly, please take some basic precautions.

But this won’t stop us meeting in future, so we’ve made a few changes to how we do it and…

Next meetup

The next online meetup will be held on Wednesday 8 April 2020 at 15:30 BST. You can find details of the event here: https://distancedesigneducation.com/events/

The theme will be Crisis Curriculum. There will also be a informal chance to check in and catch up with everyone (unrecorded!).

Please note that we will be using a Lobby for this meetup.

New articles and recipes

The the discussion from Meetup 02 around assessment ended up in the article Assessment: A few notes and contains some good advice from the community (any additional tips of additions, just let us know).

And don’t forget to have a look at some of the new recipes this week, including:

As always, if anyone want to contribute an article or recipe (or even suggest a theme for one) then please get in touch (derek.jones@open.ac.uk)

We’re also conscious that we really need to work on the Resources page as well as The Big #DistanceDesignEd FAQ (any volunteers for either…?).
