Digisim - The Flipped Academic

The site covers 2 main themes: 1 - Educational Technology & 2 - Open Education. I also often explore areas of change management processes (especially with regards to academic staff & edtech). The site is a collection of my work, my experiences, resources I have found and activities I have undertaken. Here are some of the site sections and their content. Snippets: This is my blog, but it's not really a blog. It's a place I gather "snippets" of information, commentary on my experiences and occasionally my opinion. 4E Framework: Here you will find the 4E Framework information, toolkits and resources. This is a practical framework for e-learning conversations that I have developed and implemented. This area is always in development! Lists of Wunder: These are my public Wunderlists. These lists are me collating things for either looking at later or storing because I find them interesting. People can add to the lists too by joining Wunderlist. Finally, all of my material is Creative Commons licensed CC:BY.
