As we were finalising the magazine I came across #humanmooc (1) in my Twitter feed and followed the link to discover the Human MOOC.com website an instructor-led course that sets out to humanise on-line instruction. I was too late to join the course but felt that the idea of humanized instruction and community interaction in on-line environment established for the purpose of learning, resonated with my experience of #creativeHE. I loved the underlying wisdom in the principle of seeking to develop an environment within which our humanity can flourish. An environment in which people can trust each other and be sufficiently confident to share their personal experiences and reveal how they feel as well as what they know. My experience of #creativeHE was that it indeed felt like a very human experience replete with deep and meaningful conversations founded on shared experiences, caring, compassion, empathy, humour, insights and inspirations, creativity, commitment and new relationships and friendships. I hope that this magazine manages to communicate this, indeed I hope that this magazine is itself an extension of the humanised and humanising process that was #creativeHE.
