From the podcast, I began to think about openness in education and it´s an ongoing process now really. Openness and how I/we practice it in my work became our presentation to the PBL Community. The leaders of Topic 2 had organized the weeks to minimize stress.  We also had time for in-depth discussions about our experiences of openness and some in the group had, for example, experience of MOOCs, but in most cases openness was limited and needed some registration. Thanks to Cormier (2010), I knew something about what a MOOC is. I actually never knew about it before.

From the Maha Bali lecture on March 23 and the article by Bali & Jhangjani (2020), I was inspired to create a model about content-centric or process-centric, teacher-centric or student-centric and pedagogical or social justice. Conclusion: I need to address more process-centric, student-centric and social justice in my work as a teacher.
During Topic 2, I thought a lot about the way forward. How should I use the knowledge I learn in my work? Are there others in the teaching team who will want to work with new ideas in our courses? Imagine if we could have these discussions, which we have had in the PBL group, within the teaching team at my University. Collaboration is important. Some colleagues want to return to the way of working before Covid and others are curious to explore new ways. Maybe we have to negotiate it in our context? In any case, I will be changed forever, even if things remain as before, I will be better able to understand different opportunities and choices to promote different kinds of openness.
I have also become more aware of which images I can legally use thanks to Process Arts' (2011) explanation of creative commons. I myself have looked for pictures on free websites like, search creative, pixabay. com,,,, Unfortunately, there are not many specific care images. I sent an email to the nurses' handbook of medical technology for nurses and they described how I can do when I use their pictures but that it is only legal within my training assignment, that the material may not be edited and that they must be stated as a source. It solves only a very small part of my work though. A person at the university says that you "can" use other images as well if you keep your material only on mymoodle and do not publish in public. It is still difficult when you know that you are using an image illegally
