In response to WIHEA's 2016-17 open call for learning and teaching projects, this projects aimed to enable collaborative partnerships between staff and students to directly improve learning experience by using a connectivist learing approach to evaluate, curate and create resources that will enable students and staff alike to understand and access the learning opportunities available through open, connected practice.

This project reached a wide and diverse audience across campus and beyond, including; Academic Departments (SMLC, CAL, CTE), the Library, Estates, Wellbeing Support Services, Student Union, Academic Technology and Learning Development Centre. The project provided staff and students an open network to explore and share progress and the resources are now shared openly (please see below).
