This follows on from the first NREN educational technologies workshop held at TNC19 in June. We will be discussing future strategies on how the NREN community can support educational institutions with innovative technologies. Focussing on specialised topics, we would like to discuss possibilities for future collaborations, challenges and good practices. Topics will include: joint procurement for LMS, Digital Learning Environment, eduID – MyAcademicID, learning analytics, open educational resources…etc. During the workshop we will discuss the collaboration on MyAcademic ID, the micro credentialing progress, the possibility for cloud procurement and more use cases. Should your proposed topic be chosen for the face-to-face workshop, your role will be to host a group conversation about a potential future collaboration on your topic.
