6th IEEE International Workshop on Open Education Resources (OER 2022)
Goal of the workshop:
To share teaching and learning practices in the fields of Computer Science and Information Systems/Technology mainstreaming open-licensed educational resources as well as e-learning practices in general to build Knowledge Societies.
Opening the learning in the fields of Computer Science and Information Systems/Technology
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 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 6th IEEE International Workshop on Open Education Resources for Computer Science & Information Technology (OER 2022), seeks to bring together educators, teacher trainers, professional associations, OER researchers and other stakeholders in Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT) Education.
In general, we welcome any relevant e-learning topics in general. 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. Given the Covid-19 situation, and the worldwide response to deliver online and hybrid teaching and learning, relevant submissions to OER 2021 without a strong OER component may also be considered for inclusion.
Building on the Ljubljana OER Action Plan 2017 to mainstream OER to help all Member States to create inclusive knowledge societies and achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, namely SDG 4 (Quality education), SDG 5 (Gender equality), SDG 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure), SDG 10 (Reduced inequalities within and across countries), SDG 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the goals). Contributions to SDGs are welcome.
