Open Video Sudan

Khartoum, Sudan, March 10-17, 2013

The Sudan Film Factory has been in existence since 2009. Following first exchanges between Sudanese filmmakers with students and xm:lab researchers in 2012, subsequent exchanges revolved around ideas and initiatives related to film education, production, and distribution. The two-week workshop Open Video Sudan continues these exchanges and aims to facilitate the development of an integrative approach to maintain (and sustain) the Sudan Film Factory as an independent site of visual education and networking. The xm:lab co-development approach integrates play-based educational formats. Open hardware and the collaborative production of Open Educational Resources (OER) are integral elements of the workshop. The workshop is part of the international Open Video series launched with the Open Video Forum in 2012.

Debate on Educational Innovation

Italian Universities are going through an important change with regard to the adoption of Open Education. Taking into consideration the Bologna Process, Higher Education in Italy is being pushed to improve the quality of research and teaching.

Important interinstitutional and national bodies like ANVUR (National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes - http://www.anvur.org/?q=en) as well as CRUI (The Conference of Italian University Rectors - http://www.crui.it/english/) are setting the basis for a debate on educational innovation, in order to align Italian Higher Education with the European and International standards. Open Education is amongst the first issues to be analyzed, since it regards the adoption of educational resources, mostly encapsulated at the single courses, in the wider contexts of work and society.

The local event, directed to academic teaching staff, is connected to a research project: "Evaluation for the improvement of educational contexts. A research involving University and local communities in the participatory development of innovative assessment models" (PRIN 09 - National Projects of Relevant Interest). The event is also linked to the ongoing work of an internal commission, devoted to the quality of didactics at the University of Trento.

Our specific aim is to disseminate the idea of openness in Higher Education. The activities will encompass discussions, the presentation of models for Learning Design for Open Education, the impact and sustainability of Open Models. The activities will be developed as follows:

-      1st session, 2 hrs of initial discussion on cases

University of Trento - Department of Cognitive Sciences and Psychology - http://www.unitn.it/cogsci  - corso Bettini, 84 I-38068 Rovereto (TN) | tel. +39 0464 808306

-      2nd session, 2 hrs of  analysis of tools for Learning Design (stesso indirizzo)

-      3rd Session: Debate with Students regarding Open Education and Quality of Higher Education

A platform will be opened for teachers to keep exploring and asking about Open Education. http://didatticaonline.unitn.it/formazione/

New responsibilities as OER crosses the Chasm

OER is gaining traction across the country and is already in use at hundreds of colleges and high schools across the country. As OER enters into the mainstream and impacts more and more students we need to carefully consider our programs to insure:
+ A higher degree of accuracy for all content
+ Renewed focus on technical and user support for new and existing users
+ Urgency around incorporating user feedback
+ Scalability of platforms
+ Sustainability of our efforts

This session will explore these growing needs and responsibilities at at the OpenStax College exhibit booth at the League of Innovations Conference in Dallas, Texas

OpenCourseWare in the European Higher Education Context: How to make use of its full potential for virtual mobility

This webinar will introduce participants to an European Project: "OpenCourseWare in the European Higher Education Context: How to make use of its full potential for virtual mobility" The focus of the project is on the creation of preconditions for a strong European OCW-framework. A stronger framework will also mean closer cooperation between European institutes, which may result in mutual use of material and even joint degrees. A better functioning OCW-system will enhance quality and increase the usage of online courses and therefore facilitate virtual mobility. An objective in itself, but it may also result in a decline of obstacles to cooperation and therefore an increase in real student mobility.

Creative Commons - the legal tool behind OERs

The Internet and digital technologies have transformed the way people learn. Educational resources are no longer static and scarce, but adaptable and widely available, allowing educational institutions, teachers, and learners to actively participate in a global exchange of knowledge via Open Educational Resources (OERs). Creative Commons (CC) (www.creativecommons.org) provides the legal and technical infrastructure essential to the long-term success of OER, making it possible for educational resources to be widely accessible, adaptable, interoperable, and discoverable. CC licenses are a simple, standardised way for rights holders to grant copyright permissions to their work in the digital age. Because the rights to copy, distribute, or adapt content are pre-cleared, content is more rapidly and widely disseminated, allowing innovative business models to emerge that rely on free and legal sharing and reuse. CC licenses and tools have been developed in consultation with legal experts and CC affiliate institutions in over 70 jurisdictions. Over 400 million CC-licensed works have been published by their authors on the Internet.
 
This session will explain:
·      What Creative Commons is and how CC is developing in South Africa and on the African continent
·      how CC licensing works,
·      how to publish your own content under CC licences using CC’s website

Interactive Discussion: Reflecting on Online Learning

Join this conversation about experiences teaching and using online course offerings at U-M. The use of recorded lectures, video conferencing and screencasts are now accepted ways to provide anytime, anywhere learning opportunities to complement classroom experiences. Experiments in free, online courses have lead to declarations that higher education as we know it is changing forever, being faced with a ‘digital tsunami.’ Recent events and research, from faculty abruptly ending online courses to studies on how online courses may further marginalize at-risk students, warrant further discussion of the merits, challenges, and opportunities online learning presents to academics at the University of Michigan.

All are invited to share stories. Participants include librarians who both use online teaching techniques and have taken online courses and students who have taken online courses to supplement their in-person classroom experiences at the university. Contributors include Emily Rodgers, Special Projects Librarian; Angie Oehrli, Learning Librarian; and Robert Pettigrew, Senior Instructional Design Specialist.

Khartoum, Sudan, March 10-17, 2013

The Sudan Film Factory has been in existence since 2009. Following first exchanges between Sudanese filmmakers with students and xm:lab researchers in 2012, subsequent exchanges revolved around ideas and initiatives related to film education, production, and distribution. The two-week workshop Open Video Sudan continues these exchanges and aims to facilitate the development of an integrative approach to maintain (and sustain) the Sudan Film Factory as an independent site of visual education and networking. The xm:lab co-development approach integrates play-based educational formats. Open hardware and the collaborative production of Open Educational Resources (OER) are integral elements of the workshop. The workshop is part of the international Open Video series launched with the Open Video Forum in 2012.

OER and Alternative Certification Models: An Analysis Framework

Through OER and open access, new models have emerged for supporting and recognizing learning. These models are blurring boundaries between formal and informal learning, and transforming the way we think about certification and degree completion. From Open High School Utah, to P2PU, to Coursera, this session will present an analytical framework for assessing and categorizing these alternative certification models in terms of methods of recognizing achievement, and the learning models they use.

Workshop on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

 

The development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has grown as a global trend over the past year. In May, 2012, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) have announced to establish a foundation hand in hand. Both universities made effort to advance the launch of edX, an open source software for online learning platform. A world-wide audience is allowed to take open online courses, hand in assignments, take exams, as well as obtain a completion of certificate at no charge. The feedback from the learners is extremely positive.

In addition, the similar concept is applied to the launch of Coursera, which is founded by the professors from Stanford University, Dr. Andrew Ng and Dr. Daphne Koller. Everybody is available to take the online courses freely and learn the most up-to-date course content from the topping, Ivy League universities. More than 30 renowned universities such as California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Washington University, Duke University, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have already joined Coursera to offer about 200 MOOCs, which attract more than 2 million life-long learners and 7 million registrations.

The Ministry of Education and several universities in Taiwan have voiced to promote the MOOC project. The workshop will focus on investigating the potential of MOOCs, the design and development of MOOCs, and the copyright issues applied on MOOCs. The workshop is especially designed for the instructional designers, professors, students and the related industry. This is a great opportunity to deeply understand what the MOOCs are about and why the trend has a great impact on education. The experts who are invited to deliver speeches in the related areas will share with us the prospect and trend of online learning.

1. The Evolvement and Prospect of Higher Educational Resources for Openness 

Introduce the evolvement of higher educational resources for openness and predict the trend of MOOCs.

Speaker: Dr. Wei-I Lee

2. The Introduction of MOOCs

Les matinées du elearning

Cet évènement est organisé dans le cadre des matinées du elearning et dans celui de la Semaine de l’Open Education. 
Il se déroulera en présentiel à l’Université Lyon 3 et en ligne sur le site de l’OpenEducationWeek.
Les matinées du elearning sont des formations "nomades” organisées pour les enseignants du supérieur à Lyon  par des membres de l’Université de Lyon : Lyon3, Lyon2, Lyon1, l’INSA, l’ECL, l’ENS, l’IEP et Vetagro Sup.
Matinées parce que c’est un format qui fonctionne bien pour nos enseignants.
Nomades parce que ces formations tournent dans chacun des établissements organisateurs. 
Le concept est  d’aborder un sujet  au travers de  2 ou 3 conferences et un "débat" avec Q/A. 
Nous organisons 5 évenements par an. Le premier  cette année était consacré  au mind mapping, le second au forum, le troisième aux mondes virtuels et le quatrième est donc sur le sujet de l’ Open Education.
L’objectif de cet évenement est de présenter le concept de l’Open Education,  Pourquoi et comment enseigner avec des ressources pédagogiques libres ?
9h00 : Comment les ressources pédagogiques libres nous invitent à revisiter notre enseignement - Sophie Touzé, VétagroSup, Lyon

Open education: the strategic role of the UCT Libraries

Open education: the strategic role of the UCT Libraries

Managing and making scholarly content accessible and visible involves almost every part of the university and requires core services and skills to support and sustain this growing community.  Some of these are presently being undertaken by the Centre for Educational Technology and OpenUCT, some through ICTS by the Research Portal and Enterprise Content Management projects, some through the Research Office and in faculties.  Given that one of the strategic goals and priority of the university to achieve greater impact, increased visibility and generate engagement by making its scholarly content discoverable, there is growing recognition for an institutional strategy that gives direction and systematic support for the core aspects of the work and can support a growing community at UCT that is active in creating scholarly content.  Whereas previously, the Libraries have had a low profile in the sharing, curating, publishing, visibility and dissemination of UCT’s scholarly output, it is critical that the UCT Libraries assume their role in the open scholarship agenda of the institution.  The presentation will reflect on one of the Libraries’ strategic goals for 2013-2015 which is to define and establish a leadership role in open scholarship, with specific focus on open education resources, across the campus.

Connected Learning Kick-off Event

Join us for a half day event to start a campus-wide discussion about connected learning environments. In order to ground our conversation, results from a semester-long research study investigating Design Lab 1 will be presented along with several themes emerging from the findings.

Any space, whether physical or virtual, can dramatically affect learning. Connections between people, programs, and technology within these spaces can foster new, dynamic, and integrative approaches to teaching and learning that challenge traditional notions of instruction, interaction, and student engagement. Examples of connected learning environments at Michigan include the Brandon Center in the School of Education and Design Lab 1 in the Duderstadt Center.

An OER Editor for the Rest of Us

We all know that creating or adapting high-quality OER can be pretty difficult, but it doesn't have to be. OERPub and Connexions, as well as other partners, are working together to build a next generation open-source web editor, that helps authors create rich open educational resources (OER) from scratch or using their existing educational materials. These new tools make it easy to collaboratively create, adapt, and distribute OER so students can get them however students need them (print, web, computer, mobile tablet or phone, etc).

In this webinar, we will show of the latest advances in open education publishing technology as well as invite discussion about what authors need to create truly interactive learning content.

Debate with the Dean: ''Open Education: Blessing or Blight?''

Drie keer peer jaar nodigt Delft Debatteert de Rector Magnificus Karel Luyben uit om met studenten in debat te gaan over een actueel thema. Een goede kans om te zien hoe een debat met een topfunctionaris in zijn werk gaat, of zelfs om je eigen debattalenten op de proef te stellen.

Open Education: Vloek of zegen?

De TU Delft volgt in de voetsporen van grote universiteiten zoals MIT, Harvard, en Stanford, en gaat steeds meer van haar onderwijs digitaal aanbieden. Er zijn veel goede redenen om hieraan te beginnen: de kwaliteit van lezingen gaat ermee omhoog, het bereik wordt groter – globaal zelfs, omdat iedereen met een computer en een internet aansluiting TU vakken kan gaan volgen – en we lopen er onder Europese universiteiten mee voorop.

Toch zijn er kanttekeningen. Een online master is toch niet hetzelfde te noemen als een opleiding in de collegebanken, met een docent, met je medeleerlingen, en op het lab? Straks krijgt iemand vanuit Timboektoe z’n online master zonder dat ie ooit in Delft is geweest. Dat is wel mooi natuurlijk, maar is dat eerlijk? Daarnaast turen wij met z’n allen al uren per dag naar een scherm. Is het goed om dit bij de jongere generaties nog meer aan te moedigen?

Kortom, zelfs Open Education is niet perfect. En daarom heeft Delft Debatteert, samen met de studentenpartijen ORAS en Lijst Bèta en de studentenvakbond de VSSD, het derde “Debat met de Rector” aan dit thema gewijd. Als je een goede discussie wilt zien, in een echte Amerikaans Parlementair debatmodel, dan is dit jouw activiteit. Nadat de Rector en dappere student Wouter Verbeek met elkaar op de spreekwoordelijke vuist zijn gegaan mag ook de rest van de zaal zich met zijn of haar meningen in het debat moeien. Dat kan gezellig worden!

Voor de eerste 50 studenten is er gratis Subway lunch. First come first serve, dus wees op tijd.
