Snog, marry, avoid… Feedback from conference session participants

Posted on July 13, 2012


The HEA used an interesting technology for the capturing of feedback on sessions at their 2012 annual conference – feedback was written by participants on ‘electric paper‘. Thirteen of the participants who attended the presentation I gave with my colleague, Ale Armellini, ‘UK HEIs and the OERu: Snog, Marry, Avoid?’ filled it in, and this is what they said:

Would have liked more explanation about OERu – what is it? Who started it? Who is driving it? What are US universities doing as some are members of OERu?

Loved the title – thank you 🙂

Good opportunities for questions, i.e. good time management.

Useful examination of the subject. Delivery was clear and matched the ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid’ title. Has encouraged me to explore this topic/ subject/ issues further for my institution. Thanx.

Very interesting. Had heard of OERs but not OERu.

Interesting concept.

A generally good session, informative, thought provoking although limited due to time constraints beyond the control of the speakers. Enjoyed it, kept wanting to know more. Thank you!

If any of you are reading this, I’d like to thank you for the feedback. In answer to the requests for further information about the OERu, I could suggest that you start by going to the WikiEducator site (which is the communication hub for members of the OERu network:, and click on ‘5Things you should know about the OERu network plan’. You will find loads more information on the rest of the WikiEducator site, and you may also find useful information about the OERu on this blog and on my ‘’ curation platform, Open Learning News.

Feel free to add a comment here if you have further questions or would like further links – I’ll do my best to send you in the right direction.
