Open–lecture.net

Writing about web page http://open-lecture.net/

Interesting idea; a web site where universities or academic departments can publish details of public lectures and other open events.

Open-lecture.net is a place to announce or find out about public lectures, seminars, debates, conferences and exhibitions going on in your area or subject field. Open-lecture.net is intended to promote active learning and academic collaboration; it is aimed at students, lecturers and anyone with an interest in learning or networking.

It's the work of one man, Steve Cooke, and his reasons for doing it are themselves interesting:-

A few years ago I was unable to work for nearly a year due to injury. To pass the time I attended a number of public lectures run by the politics department at Portsmouth University. In 2005 I realised that I could do something positive to promote these kind of events, which are often sadly under-attended. It's taken me a few months to put this site together, but I hope it will encourage many more people to enjoy the world of public education.

I'll be going back to the site over the next few months to see what volume and type of content ends up being published there.
