OER18: Open to All
9th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy
18-19 April 2018, Bristol, UK
The conference will be held at the Watershed in Bristol, UK. This is the first time that Bristol has hosted the event and we are looking forward to convening the community and discovering a new home for the conference at the Watershed venue.
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 policy wonk and project manager David Kernohan. [more about the co-chairs]
