I was about to email this around some contacts, who are just catching up with my news , but it's not really the open way to do things so I am posting it here too - minus my home address.
I have moved on from the College Development Network and I am looking for full or part-time assignments that can use my skills, experience and networks across Scottish Education, UK and into international vocational education.
For those in the system. If you have staff who need their eyes opened to the possibilities of new delivery models in a constructive way – I have the skills and contacts to build their confidence to inspire them to take delivery and learner engagement to a new place.
For those in and around the system; if you have a project that needs a business case, a product or solution that will support learning or educational institutions in an innovative way, you are searching for the right route to market or you are simply looking for the right partner in the Scottish Education sector then I hope to be able to help.
My personal interests will still focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, digital literacy with a focus on educators, developing open practitioners , shared services, open education, digital communities of practice, collaborative education and the co-creation of curricula, new forms of assessment – particularly e-portfolios and their role in quality assurance, open badges and new ways of credentialing learning, all things 16+ learning formal and informal and much more.
I have a deep understanding of the policy landscape around Colleges and across the vocational learning landscape across the UK.
In the month ahead I am supporting a webinar from the Heart of Worcester College on a new model of collaborative content creation and supporting the organisation of https://oer16.oerconf.org/ #oer16 at Edinburgh University.
My updated linkedin profile is here https://www.linkedin.com/in/joerwilson
If you have a moment, I would welcome a recommendation around the work we have done in the past on my LinkedIn Profile.
I look forward to working with you in the future and meeting you on the journey to make education a relevant and a better place for all.
