OER 2019: The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Open Educational Resources for Computer Science & Information Technology

Workshop Theme: Opening the Learning in the Fields of Computer Science and Information Systems/Technology

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 an opportunity for innovation through their empowerment as co-creators, offering the opportunity to reuse and adapt existing resources, making 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 3d IEEE International Workshop on Open Education Resources for Computer Science & Information Technology (OER 2019), 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 emphasizing opportunities offered by Open Education as a means to empowerment and to increase accessibility and quality of educational opportunities for all in CS and IT education, in five strategic areas proposed in the document known as the “Ljubljana OER Action Plan 2017, 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.

We also welcome papers on related e-learning technologies and methodologies in general.
