Open Badges Workshop @ MootUK14

A long time ago I blogged about the potential use of Open Badges – and like everything, it’s always nice to reflect on these things as time goes by. So somewhat aptly, ten months after I posted that last blog post, here I am, sat in Edinburgh as part of the […]

Saying goodbye……to that button and assessment

I’ve had a number of conversations about these subjects in public before, and even more arguments about them behind closed doors, so it seems like quite a good time to put this one out there. Many times in the past year or so I’ve talked about the intention to drop […]

A new direction for compliance 4

So, three months ago I posted a tweet: A stat&mand lead emailed to say she wants to change the way her subject is delivered thanks to “the excellent session” by @CraigTaylor74 — Nick Lee (@N1ckL33) October 9, 2013 Since then, Craig Taylor (@CraigTaylor74) has written a blog post (Great feedback […]

Three “new” things for 2014! 2

It’s that time of year when everyone starts to make new years resolutions. Clearly we all want to do things better, or differently, especially if there’s a gain to made somewhere along the line, albeit a personal or organisational one. I guess, if I was to have a new years […]

Five years…what’s changed?

Like I said in my last post, many of my blog rambles start from a simple concept. This particular one came on the 7th November 2013 (and it’s only taken me two months to get round to doing it) with an idea from Alistair Cockroft (@acockroft): @N1ckL33 well I never […]

Do we “get” social? 2

As usual, most of my thoughts stem from something. In a lot of cases, they stem from something that someone else says, and in this case, it was no different. Yet again, it was a tweet from Craig Taylor(@craigtaylor74) that was guilty this time: Is there anybody out there who […]

Auto-tweet? What’s the point?

During a session I recently ran for the Training and development management team about social media, to emphasise the use of social media, I had set up my PowerPoint slideshow to auto-tweet (so when I moved to a specific slide, it would send a tweet from my twitter account): Today […]

Social media for education management

Within the UHS Training and development management team we have a wealth of knowledge on all different subjects. There are experts in clinical skills, personal development, management and leadership skills, and everything in between. For this reason, it’s quite rare to find something which so many of them know so […]

Maybe it (Tin) Can after all….

For anyone who read my previous blog on Tin Can API (Tin Can’t), you’ll know I was mildly lost on the concept. It’s actually quite funny looking back on that blog post – and how much my own perceptions have changed in the past seven months. So, previously my issue […]

GOSH Learning Innovations Conference

After a quick introduction from Cat Oxley, Donald Taylor (@DonaldHTaylor) took to the stage to begin the first Great Ormond Street Hospital Learning Innovations Conference. As I’ve become used to from Don (it’s been a few years since I last heard him talk – but the content is always of […]
