OCWC Global Conference 2014 - Ljubljana   

OCWC Global Conference, Ljubljana 2014

The OCW Consortium global conference is the annual opportunity for researchers, practitioners, policy makers and educators to deeply explore open education and its impact on global education. Conference participants will hear from global thought leaders in open education and have the opportunity to share ideas, practices and discuss issues important to the future of education worldwide. Sessions cover new developments in open education, research results, innovative technology, policy implementation, best practices and practical solutions to challenges facing education around the world.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Open Education for a Multicultural World”, and features four tracks:

Research and Technology – new technologies allowing scaling and sharing of Open Educational Resources in a faster or more economical way, to index the multimodal and multilingual material, or to navigate and remix available material.
Open Educational Policies - policy issues and their impact on open educational practice, including licensing issues, alternative business models, cooperative efforts and governmental funding.
Pedagogical Impact – novel uses of Open Educational Resources and their impact on education, analysis of the impact of Open Educational Resources on the learning process itself, as well as deployment of OERs in MOOCs, flipped classrooms, hybrid educational approaches and online education.
Finally, a project dissemination track will allow actors (teams, projects, companies) currently involved in open education projects in Europe to present the results of their work.
