I'm off this afternoon to a recording being made by the BBC's Click! team at the Science Museum, one of my favourite museums in London. And I like Spencer Kelly and Bill Thompson too so it will be good to see them again. Here's a page describing a little bit of the current exhibition http://www.gizmag.com/information-age-british-science-museum/34411/
I've been puzzling for a while as to the relationship of Ethos and Academics (or rather people who work in Universities).
Usually the way in which academics get involved in outside activities is very project-driven and focussed, looking to see what and how specific knowledge and skills the academic might have can be applied to the external business.
But what if academics might be involved as Academics?
That is, what would be the vehicle for Ethos to provide an Ethos environment for people to undertake teaching, scholarship and research?
Would it look like MOOCs + TeamArmy?
I'm working on a paper around this, but does anyone have any views?
