In 2018, the yearly Global Meeting of the Open Education Consortium will be from 24-26 April in Delft, organized by Delft University of Technology. Behind the scenes, many people are already busy with the myriad of issues that comes with organizing such an event.
Today, the website for the event is launched, simultaneously with the Call for Proposals. Proposals are welcome under the theme for the 2018 conference:
Transforming Education Through Open Approaches, and should fit into one of the subthemes:
- Open Connections
- Open Education Research
- Innovation through opening traditional practices
- Policies & strategies for Open Education
- Institutionalizing Open Education
- Tools & Technologies for Open Education
- Open Educational Practices/Open Pedagogy
- Connecting Open Education to formal education
- Student perspectives
Four session formats will be distinguished:
- Action Lab
Papers will be made available in Conference proceedings. For those interested, there is an opportunity to publish a paper in a Special Issue of Open Praxis. Both publications will be made available full Open Access (under a CC-BY license) and publishing in Open Praxis does not require an author fee.
Due date for sending in proposals is 23 October 2017.
We hope to receive many interesting proposals that will contribute to a wonderful event in 2018!
