Tita Beaven's OpenLearn Profile
This page contains all the information that this user has chosen to make public on their OpenLearn profile.
My research is in the area of Open Education, in particular Open Eduational Resources and Open Educational Practices. I am also interested in the area of intercultural communication and the development of intercultural competence, especially in distance education and through web-based materials. I have lead a number of external projects, including OT12, an Open Translation MOOC funded by the HEA, and Performing Languages, a European project investigating the intersection between drama performance, language teaching and intercultural communication. I was also project director for LORO, an OER repository for language teaching materials, project lead by my colleague Anna Comas-Quinn.
