Quotes from EFQUEL Innovation Forum

Granada CC BY-SA Alastair Creelman
It's always hard to sum up a conference full of meetings, presentations, discussions and impressions. As one of the organizers of last week's EFQUEL Innovation Forum in Granada I was not always able to concentrate on all the sessions but I did manage to pick up a nice selection of quotes from our main speakers. Here are my favourites in no particular order:

“You can’t nail jelly to the wall”
Rory McGreal (Athabasca University) on the difficulties of defining the constantly shifting field of open education. 

“Most intellectual property is neither intellectual nor property”
Rory McGreal

"In the near future most students at university will be lifelong learners rather than traditional young students"
Tony Bates

"You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs"
Tony Bates on the future of higher education

"Traditional universities that don't recognise the move towards disaggregation will/might go the way of Kodak"
Rory McGreal

"Effective elearning means accepting loss of control"
Stephan Atsou

"Students coming out of high school aren't good at online learning"
Tomy Bates

"Resources are not courses. Courses are a pedagogical process"
Graham Attwell

"Learning environments have moved out of the educational establishment"
Graham Attwell
