OER20: Open Education Conference

Am 01.04.2020 - 02.04. in online
Veranstalter: Association for Learning Technology in the UK
Kategorie: Tagung


As a result of the recent developments with the COVID-19 outbreak, ALT has had to cancel the face to face OER20 Conference in London, 1-2 April 2020. Instead we are going to offer a reduced programme of activities online.

The online programme will take place 1-2 April 2020 and utilise the experience that ALT has of running the ALT Online Winter Conference.  We have put together these pages to provide as much information and help as possible in order to maximise your experience of the online programme of activities. As you will be aware these arrangements have had to be implemented very quickly in order to accommodate this change of plan and we would ask you to be patient while we update pages accordingly.

The Care in Openness

Covering issues of privilege, equity, precarity, power relations and public interest, OER20 will put the spotlight on both the value and limitations of care in open education.

Care is a means for social transformation when it is rooted in actual practices and mechanisms that guarantee its redistribution towards a lasting social reorganisation (ZEMOS98, 2019). But in the age of data surveillance and significant risk on the open web, how can we map out and give visibility to the critical component of care practices? How can we build sustainable communities, participatory practices, and civic engagement for the public good and a healthier democracy?

    • Theme 1: Openness in the age of surveillance
    • Theme 2: Sustainable open education communities
    • Theme 3: Open education for civic engagement and democracy
    • Theme 4: Criticality and care in open education
    • Theme 5: Caring pedagogies and designing for diverse communities of inclusion
    • And also Wildcard submissions : open education practice, research or policy session proposals that address the overarching conference theme.
