Summary of two keynotes at this year's Alt/C conference in Manchester, as experienced virtually (both links to YouTube recordings): "Jonathan Worth’s keynote (I’m not sure if there was a title for this – if there was I didn’t see it) and Laura Czerniewicz who talked about Inequality in Higher Education." The first "addressed issues of vulnerability, privacy and trust in open learning, at the local level of the learner," while Czerniewicz discussed "inequality in an austerity environment and particularly in new online landscapes." These are good themes for the current environment, I think. Don't miss the comments, as there's a nice addendum from Jonathan Worth in there. (p.s. why is a conference deemed 'a success' if it trends on Twitter? How is that a measure of success?)
