OER16: Open Culture (OER16)

19.–20. Apr 2016 Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The 7th Open Educational Resources Conference, OER16: Open Culture, will be held on the 19th-20th April 2016 at the University of Edinburgh. The conference will be chaired by Melissa Highton, Director of Learning, Teaching and Web Services at the University of Edinburgh, and Lorna Campbell, OER Liaison at the University of Edinburgh and EDINA Digital Education Manager.

The vision for the conference is to focus on the value proposition of embedding open culture in the context of institutional strategies for learning, teaching and research focusing on:

  • The strategic advantage of open and creating a culture of openness.
  • Converging and competing cultures of open knowledge, open source, open content, open practice, open data and open access.
  • Hacking, making and sharing.
  • The reputational challenges of openwashing.
  • Innovative approaches to opening up cultural heritage collections for education.

The conference themes are:

  1. Strategic and reputational advantages of openness (including, but not restricted to, outreach, public engagement and return on investment).
  2. Converging or diverging cultures of openness (including open data, open science, open GLAM, open knowledge, open source, open content, open access).
  3. Hacking, making and sharing.
  4. Innovative approaches to opening up cultural heritage collections for education.
