Today was spent seeing Oxford University, and the surroundings.
I was also interviewed by Stephan Ridgway and Robyn Jay about the study tour. A telling question from Robyn was "what will you bring back from the conferences and interviews"? Innovation and Leadership are a combination of many supporting factors, including the ability to take supported risks, and a culture to do that in, having open collaboration, and having the energy of a number of champions to drive the innovation. Frameworks are essential, but so too is freedom within that framework, both for innovation and excellent leadership.
An email came about the EDNA Groups E-learning Resources and tools website. Have a look especailly at the "Ten web 2.0 things you can do in ten minutes to be a more successful e-learning professional" from Lisa Neal and Stephen Downes, and try one.
