OER: The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Open Education Resources for Computer Science & Information Technology
Call for Papers
The goal of this workshop is to share teaching and learning practices in the fields of Computer Science and Information Systems/Technology mainstreaming open-licensed educational resources to build Knowledge Societies.
Scope of the Workshop
Open Education Resources (OER), are freely available learning materials, discoverable on the World Wide Web, are becoming increasingly popular internationally at all levels of education, and across almost every discipline. OER can provide richer and even less expensive learning experience for students while also make the teaching experience more fulfilling for instructors. OERs can also encourage international collaboration in teaching and learning.
The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Open Education Resources for Computer Science & Information Technology (OER 2018), seeks to bring together educators, teacher trainers, professional associations, OER researchers and other stakeholders in Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT) Education.
In particular, we welcome theoretical and empirical proposals addressing an open approach of practices and research in CS and IT education in five strategic areas, namely: building the capacity of users to find, re-use, create and share OER; language and cultural issues; ensuring inclusive and equitable access to quality OER; developing sustainability models; and developing supportive policy environments.
This workshop can be, in this way, aligned with the recommended actions to mainstream open-licensed educational resources to build Knowledge Societies launched in the second World Open Educational Resources (OER), in the document known as the “Ljubljana OER Action Plan 2017”.
