This week I’m looking forward to presenting an invited talk on OER at the International Open Science Conference in Berlin.
My talk, Crossing the Field Boundaries will explore the interface between open education, open data and open science. The talk will highlight the Open Knowledge Open Education Group‘s influential study of Open Data as OER by Javiera Atenas and Leo Havemann, and using examples from the University of Edinburgh’s GeoScience Outreach and Engagement Course will highlight how student created open educational resources can be used to widen participation and encourage knowledge transfer and community engagement in science education. I’ll post my paper and slides when I get back later in the week.
Thanks to the conference organisers for making these cute twitter cards!
