Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring the following to your attention:

Manchester Metropolitan University in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University and further institutions from the UK (Durham University, Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Sussex, London Metropolitan University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, University of Salford, Kingston University London, University of Ulster, a partner in the US (Texas Educator Chat) and Germany (ICT-REV) as well as further colleagues from other institutions, are offering for the third time the popular:

‘Bring Your Own Device for Learning’ course (or short BYOD4L)

12-16 January 2015

BYOD4L is a bite-size open course facilitated by teachers and students over 5 days for students and teachers in HE but also anybody else who would like to learn with us how we can utilise our digital devices for professional, lifelong and lifewide learning.

Together we will explore the following topics based on the 5C Framework:

  • connecting
  • communicating
  • curating
  • collaborating
  • creating


Using an inquiry-based approach that will enable us to learn with others and/or on our own within a supportive community. You are very welcome to join one or all the above topics and work towards an open badge or two 😉 There will be seven open badges available in total. One for each topic and a course badge if you successfully complete the whole course. All work submitted will be peer reviewed and can be used as evidence of CPD.

If you would like to find out more about #BYOD4L and join, please have a look at

http://byod4learning.wordpress.com Feel free to follow @byod4l on Twitter to keep up-to-date with all course announcements. The course hashtag is #BYOD4L.

Each evening there will be a tweetchat between 8-9pm GMT and on some days additional Google hangouts during the day. There is an opportunity to both listen in and contribute to a discussion via Twitter via the hashtag #BYOD4Lchat. In the previous two iterations of the course this has been a vibrant learning space where participants share ideas and learn together.

Please note, this is a registration-free course. You can access all collaborative spaces and resources without additional logins. We would however like to invite you to consider completing the initial survey if you decide to participate in the course. This can be found at http://byod4learning.wordpress.com/surveys/initial-survey/.Thank you in advance for this.

Please extend this invite to others who might be interested in joining us. Thank you very much.

We look forward to learning together in January.
