OER18: Open to All – 9th Annual conference

Watershed Event Centre

Bristol, United Kingdom

 

“OER18 turns the focus on one of the often-cited benefits of ‘open’ – the promise of inclusivity. How do the resources, methods and projects that make up Open Education support making education available to all? As a movement over 15 years old, has Open Education made an impact – on learners, on society and on education? What can we do to to support learning in the open – and how can we use open to support learning?

The conference will be chaired by academic and Open Education researcher Vivien Rolfe, alongside Wonkhe Associate Editor David Kernohan [more about the co-chairs].

Our co-chairs and committee invite everyone, no matter what their links to or interest in Open Education, to respond to these challenges under the following themes:

  • How can open practice and research support learner success?
  • How does Open Education foster learner diversity and support inclusivity?
  • What skills do learners need and develop in experiencing open learning?
  • Politics in action – (following up from #OER17) – what are your latest initiatives in support of learning and growth?
  • How is OER learning from, and contributing to, other open activities, e.g. open science, open source, open data, open access etc.?
  • Wildcard – what do we need to include? What have we ignored?”
