Biting the B822 Bullet – Creativity, Innovation and Change

With another 60 credits to achieve the MA in Open & Distance Learning I learnt I could ‘stretch my legs’ and pull in some points from other fields of study.

B822 is a Faculty of Business and Law School module; its fans, I have learnt are many and vocal.

My fear is the return to books and studying after a too brief interlude; it doesn’t half muck up you weekends, what is more it has taken me entirely away from something else that I do (or did): writing fiction.

My fear too is that I am at the Faculty where the module was written and from where it is taught so there is little distance for me with this piece of distance learning.

However, that Muse ‘Serendipity‘ just came to my rescue (during an interlude from sleep where I was busily asking myself ‘should I’ or ‘shouldn’t’ I?

I stumbled upon the blog of Barbara Wilson

She happens to be an OU Lecturer in Creativity and Leadership (living in France) and her latest blog is about a paper from one of the authors of B822 which I promptly download and put into iBooks.

Being playful and smart?

The relations of adult playfulness with psychometric and self-estimated intellegicne and academic performance.

It doesn’t take much for me to feel the familiar comfort of reading, contemplating the application of ideas and taking notes. In one respect I spent a year, full-time, studying this at the ‘School of Communication Arts’. Let’s see.

  1. Greetings Jonathan,

    Wishing you much success, as you are well on way, “…With another 60 credits to achieve the MA in Open & Distance Learning I learnt I could ‘stretch my legs’ and pull in some points from other fields of study…”

    Your blogs are interesting as well as seeing your desire of fiction writing. Will look into your mention of stumbling into the blog of Barbara Wilson, which happen to be named after your late grandmother as well. Twelve years of blogging, WOW! Keep it up…

    Sincerely,

    Tempie Williams

  2. I’m really pleased to have stumbled across your blog and may I say 12 years is very impressive. I look forward to reading more. Thanks so much for the link to Barbara Wilson’s blog. Good luck!
