About this site

This is the blog for the TOUCANS Project, which I am doing as a SCORE Fellow with the Open University, from my base within the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester.

About the TOUCANS project

TOUCANS is one of several such UK-based research projects being funded by HEFCE. It will focus on the Open Educational Resources university and its implications for the UK Higher Education sector.

The project will run until the end of June 2012. See http://www.le.ac.uk/toucans for more details.

  1. very interested in your research here Gabi, and your background. I’m just getting involved at our end of OERU (wollongong) and keen to incorporate research around language education module development for our contribution, and critical discussion of the whole phenomenon, into my thesis (on language education in a changing higher ed context). I’ve only just discovered your site here and this may no longer be the best forum to discuss with you, but if so, hope to be able to discuss your work here – great stuff!

  2. brilliant, thankyou so much 🙂
