This is a task aimed at developing students skills in interview coding whilst appreciating the emotional richness of the life story of Germinal Luis, a Spanish migrant whose testimony features in the OpenLIVES collection. This activity can be classed as an inductive and hands-on initiation to Migration Oral History. As part of the task, students will be able to contribute to the Global Learning Community with their own OER.

This is a document, uploaded as a PDF and as a ppt, outlining the main points of the presentation given at the HEA-funded OpenLIVES workshop at the University of Southampton (LLAS) on the 23rd of May 2012. During the presentation some educational principles and practices emerging from the OpenLIVES experience were discussed, including the idea of student as an author and transacademic life skills. This presentation is the basis for the second part of the OpenLIVES presentation of the July 2012 LLAS Symposium in Edinburgh given in conjunction with Kate Borthwick, from LLAS in Southampton.
This is the ppt presentation shown at the Edinburgh Conference of 2012. It outlines some of the key aspects of this collection of digitalised research data and some educational principles and practices emerging from the OpenLIVES experience. OpenLIVES is an OER project funded by JISC.
This activity is currently being used in the module SPPO 2650/1 "The Spanish regional Melting Pot: the old same History?" at the University of Leeds. Students make their contributions via discussion boards in VLE Blackboard. The activity is aimed at facilitating students’ interaction and co-operation in the process of understanding the complex socio-economic and demographic reality of Spain and its Autonomous Communities as well as the country’s political-territorial structure. It also fosters transferable skills such as statistical literacy, the ability to work as part of a group, negotiating skills, communication skills, leadership and spirit of enquiry. The activity was first used in the module "Spain: Political Decentralisation and Integration into Europe" (SPPO 2370/1) in 2008 but has been updated since them. It can be downloaded either as a word document or as a pdf. Last update 29 September 2014.
