Learning together at the OU
The Open University has used technology in innovative ways to inspire learners. It has posted out microscopes, enabled students to look at art and geology close up using their own computers and built online structures which help students to learn together. Using clips from television to illuminate their perspectives Daniel Weinbren (author of 'The Open University. A history') and John Richardson (who has been involved in the evaluation of OU courses and programmes for over 20 years) will offer ideas on how we've learnt and how we've taught over the last 40+ years.
