Practical OER: Transitioning from Theory to Implementation

SUNYLA – State University of New York Librarians Association

Friday, February 2, 2018

 

“Everyone can agree that Open Education Resources are a good thing: decreasing the cost of textbooks can make education more accessible for more people. The SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference planning committee is seeking proposals describing the ways that you’ve actually implemented OERs at your institution, and how the library has been involved with that process. Do you have great ideas about how to promote OERs to your faculty and colleagues? Have you created OER repositories or guides that you think could be used as a model for other schools? Do you have success stories about collaborating with faculty to make campus-wide OER a reality? Can you recommend best practices for making sure students can get print copies of material if they need it? Share your experience with your colleagues at the SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference on February 2, 2018 (10:00am – 2:30pm).”

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?”
