This workshop will explore the lessons learnt during the JLeRN Experiment, and contribute to the final outputs of the project, including the JLeRN Final Report and Recommendations; a few small task outputs commissioned by the project from projects and experts; and the findings of JISC OER Rapid Innovation projects with an interest in the Learning Registry.
Attendees will be those who have worked with JISC CETIS and Mimas in investigating the Learning Registry and its potentials for UK education. This includes members of the informal Learning Registry Task Group, projects which have explored using the Learning Registry, and those who have attended JISC CETIS, JLeRN and/or Learning Registry events.
The event is free and there is a small budget for travel expenses for those who have previously attended JLeRN or other Learning Registry events, or who have otherwise worked with the project. Lunch will be provided from 12:00-12:30.
