OERxDOMAINS Conference 2021 - Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals for the OERxDomains Conference is now open. The conference will take place online, 21-22 April 2021. The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2021. 

Organised by the Association for Learning Technology and partnership with Reclaim Hosting’s Domains Conference, this special edition of the much loved event is the 12th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy. We are proud to incorporate a special strand hosted by the Domains Conference – bringing our two communities closer together in 2021.

To make this special edition of the event happen, we have a team of Co-Chairs: Heading up the Domains strand are Lauren (Brumfield) Hanks and Jim Groom and leading on the OER side are Lou Mycroft, Louise Drumm and Joe Wilson.

The OER Conference Committee plays a vital role and our volunteers contribute their time and expertise including undertaking peer review, chairing sessions and organising local and social activities during the conference. Find out who’s involved

The conference will put the spotlight on both the value and limitations of Open Education in a (post)pandemic world. We are particularly keen to hear from people who have an interest in the following indicative areas of practice:

  • Theme 1: Openness, care, and joy in the times of pandemic;

  • Theme 2: Open Education responses to surveillance technologies and data ownership in education;

  • Theme 3: Open in Action: open teaching, educational practices and resources, how you might be using Domains and other tools;

  • Theme 4: Shifts in agency and creativity as empowerment of learners and educators;

  • Theme 5: Open Source Tools: infrastructure, cloud environments, targeted teaching tools.

Wildcard proposals that specifically address the conference themes in relation to open practice, research and policy are also welcome.
