    • Hi, we haven’t defined the standards yet, we are running the consultations with the aim to have a clear idea in the next few months, and hope you want to get involved.

    • Hi! If you teach in HE and want to participate, please register using the following link and we will send you an e-mail with more information.
      Thank you very much!

    • Hi Benjamin,

      We are not using a wiki at the moment, mostly because we are still in the first stage: recruiting lecturers, and we need to make sure that only people who works in academia get involved, so the communication with the participants at this stage in only by email and by using this blog.

      The idea of a wiki is very interesting and I will discuss about it with my fellow researchers to enable a space to encourage the participants to discuss, thanks for the suggestion.

      Also, after the research in concluded all the results will be published as Open Access papers and not in commercial / private journals

      Kind regards and please let me know if you want to learn more about this project (will send you a tweet with my details)
