Here, I will unashamedly plagiarise content written by my colleague Catherine who is moderating the Opening Up Education strand of the forum. The points of guidance and netiquette which Catherine makes are really great. Please do feel free to add to the list by replying to this post.
Thank You Catherine Haliwell
Participants will be from across the Commonwealth, different experiences, different cultures, different time zones. To aid communication be prepared to define terms that might not be familiar to other participants.
Please allow for the fact that responses will come in at all hours due to the global distribution of participants, so an immediate look at responses will not have quite the richness of opinion that a later look will have.
Please be respectful of differences of culture, opinion and ideas. Remember we are open to all people, places and ideas.
