such goings on!

One of me in SL

This is “me”

Oh boy, I just have to bring you this one! From the University of Bristol here is the virtual reality cow 🙂 It sounds, and looks, funny but it has a serious side to it – think of all those lovely vets it’s going to help train 🙂

I have had the most super meeting this afternoon with “a very nice lady” by the name of Laura Jones. Laura is one of the “Institute of Humanities First Year Tutors”, a group who are doing marvellous things with the first year students. These Tutors are previous students of the University and, with the help of the Learning and Teaching Fund, are bridging the gap between college/school and University by using social media and modern technologies. If you want to try setting up something like this in your discipline why not contact Laura to talk about it.

Why not try joining in the Oxford University “23 Things for Research“. You can join even if you do not work or study at Oxford but you will need to contact the ALT Librarians and me (Tim Johnson) for support instead of the people at Oxford.

That’s all for now – see you all tomorrow 🙂


About timjohnson
I came through a tortuous path to the role of Adviser in Digital Literacy in the Information and Learning Services Department. In the past I was a: Senior Lecturer in Health Informatics, Senior Lectuer in Midwifery, Midwifery Sister, Staff Midwife, Nurse, Secretary, Bars Manager. I would have liked to be a jeweller and silver smith but of course there is always retirement for that :)
