  • OER18: Open to All

    April 18, 2018 – April 19, 2018

    OER18: Open to All

    9th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy

    18 – 19 April 2018, Bristol, UK

    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?

    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?

  • Playful Learning

    July 13, 2016 – July 15, 2016

    Playful Learning is pitched at the intersection of learning and play for adults. Playful in approach and outlook, yet underpinned by robust research and working practices, we’ll be providing a space where teachers, researchers and students can play, learn and think together. A space to meet other playful people and be inspired by talks, workshops, activities and events. Based in the heart of Manchester, we’ll also be exploring some of the city’s playful spaces with evening activities to continue the fun and conversations after the formal programme ends.

    Playful learning will run over three days, from lunchtime on Wed 13 July 2016 to lunchtime on Friday 15 July 2016.

    Playful Learning will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Birley Campus, in the Brooks Building, 20 minutes walk from the centre of Manchester. Accommodation will be made available on campus in student accommodation, but there are also many excellent hotels within a short walk of the campus.

    We are looking for contributions in the field of play, games, and engagement specifically as they relate to adult learning. The conference aims to be multi-disciplinary and we welcome submissions from all area, including (but not limited to) education, computing, game studies, and psychology. We are interested in theoretical and practical contributions, and want to bring together research, development and innovative practice. We also welcome contributions from students and non-academic areas.

    Abstracts can be up to 1000 words; this is a maximum, not an expectation, and fewer words are fine too. Please indicate in your abstract how much time you would like for your session and give an overview of how you plan to structure the session and any additional (or unusual) requirements you have.
