G’day Everyone

Although I’ve added some comments so far to the blog, I’d like to also post an introduction now that I have final confirmation that I’ve officially registered as a student at UIAH.

Anyhow my name is Gerard Brady. I’m Australian by nationality and an environmental planner by education and early professional experience. However, for the best part of the last three years I’ve been working with a team of designers, academics, and educational technologists (and all sorts of creative-types) at the United Nations University Media Studio in Tokyo, Japan.

We’ve been trying to work out a way to develop open educational resources utilising the opportunities presented by information society so that partnering universities in developing countries can build, share and use educational content (mainly on environmental subjects, for starters). And to cut a long story short, I have kind of realised that, in such a dynamic world with everchanging tools, playing fields and rules, there is no magical “one way”. That said, I’m pretty keen to study the options available though and where they might lead us.

I won’t waste too much more space and time (if you’ve read this far), but to say that I’m really looking forward to starting the course and also meeting everyone in Hamburg in October.
