ABOUT

Welcome to the Open Education for a Better World Yearly Eduscope!

University of Nova Gorica (UNG) and UNESCO Chair on Open Technologies for OER and Open Learning at the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) are announcing Open Education for a Better World Eduscope, which will take place from June 29 – July 02, 2020.

In the main track titled OE4BW Workshop, projects developed in scope of OE4BW mentoring program will be presented with short pitches and will receive direct feedback in a discussion panel. The programme will be complemented with interactive activities and keynote speeches, covering topics such as Artificial Inteligence in education, Quality issues of Open Education, and importance of Open Education for policy responses to Covid-19. A special track of the Workshop activities titled Open Education for SDG7 – Affordable and Clean Energy will focus on the energy and climate related challenges that can be supported through open educational practices and resources.

The second track titled OE4BW Festival will connect the OE4BW community with a wider audience. Policy and capacity building issues will be in focus of this day. In addition, it will include a regional state-of-the-art presentation about Open Education in Asia, with examples and highlights presented by the best regional experts.

The third track titled OE4BW Marketplace will be a round-the-clock event where OE4BW mentors and their guests, as well as other invited speakers will present and discuss a broad variety of open education issues.

OE4BW Exhibition will enable participants to explore OE4BW educational materials developed in the OE4BW international mentoring program.

This event builds upon and extends the scope of the last two successful Open Education Design – Course for Practitioners held in Vipava, Slovenia in 2018 and 2019. It aims at contributing to the implementation of the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Educational Resources (OER). At the same time, we believe that it will foster further growth of the OE4BW community, resulting in new collaborations and many new projects with a great impact. When implemeting UN goals of sustainable development, every single step counts. We wish you a lot of success on this way, hoping that you will find the OE4BW 2020 Eduscope as a good source of information and inspiration.
