This week I was invited to introduce the participants of the 2nd International Conference on E-learning, organised by the Egyptian E-learning University, to the field of Open Education. This is one of the things you sometimes have to do as board member of the Open Education Consortium (it is a tough job ;-) ). It was a delight to visit Cairo, although it was only for 1,5 day.
About 50 people attended the 3-hour workshop. This were people from different universities in Egypt and some companies and NGOs. Most of the people were new to the field of Open Education. Below is the slide deck I used during the workshop:
In the afternoon I had the opportunity to visit the pyramids of Giza. This is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was amazing to see such enormous construction of stones. Thanks to EELU for arranging this for me.
