Open Education Smörgåsbord

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Open Education is about breaking down barriers to learning. This may be through changing teaching practice, shifting policy, releasing data or sharing resources.

In the Open Education Smörgåsbord we want to get people interacting, collaborating, sharing, making and ultimately learning about what the future of education could be. This interactive workshop session will begin by introducing attendees to the Open Education Working Group and how it relates to the different elements of open education. It will then facilitate cross-sector and cross-domain working through an interactive 'maker party'. The five 'table' leaders will introduce themselves, their projects and explain the activity they will be facilitating. The tables are: The Open Teacher Kit, OER Policy made crystal clear, Mobile use of open data for education, Make an Open Education Handbook Q&A and open courseware collaboration with Slidewiki. Attendees can join any of the 5 maker tables and make and learn!
