OER19 Conference: Recentering Open

10th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy

The conference will be co-chaired by Laura Czerniewicz and Catherine Cronin. Read more about the conference co-chairs.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Galway, when the OER Conference will focus on the following themes:

  • Back to basics – asking difficult questions about open education:
    • Why open?
    • Open for whom?
    • Whose interests are served?
    • In what ways has the open agenda been appropriated, and what are the implications of this?
  • The geopolitics of open education, bringing open in from the periphery
  • The open ecosystem: How is open education part of the broader ecosystem of “opens”?
  • What does it mean to illuminate open by considering context?
  • How can historical perspectives contribute to understanding the issues faced in the open education movement today?
  • Links between critical digital literacies, critical data literacies, and openness
  • What open business models are emerging? What are the paths to sustainability?
  • What are the risks and challenges to the open education agenda?
