NDLR Fest 2010
On Wednesday the NDLR held their annual Fest in The Trinity Science Gallery. The day was a great success with many interesting presentations on the excellent projects that individuals and institutions have been working on over the past year. Many of the presenters showcased the RLOs they've been developing and there was a chance to speak with them and view the RLOs they have created. There was also a poster session held that gave everyone a chance to get up-to-date on what various NDLR CoPs are getting up to.
The event was attended by individual academics, groups of academics who have been working collaboratively through various NDLR initiatives and key stakeholders in the Irish HE sector.
Andrew Flaus and Oisín Keeley from the Dept. of Biochemistry at NUIG showcased the fantastic RLOs that they've created as part of a project to develop learning tools that would enable students to grasp conceptually difficult scientific topics and techniques and to create some new assets to aid revision and study for exams.
By coincidence there was a beautiful exhibition installed in the Science Gallery.
The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef (A Woolly Wonder) was really amazing and we got a chance to take a look around at the exhibition. If you're in Dublin between now and June you should certainly make time to pop in and see it.
