In collaboration with:
We are glad to announce that the Lord Mayor of Oxford, Councillor Mohammed Abbasi will honour the Welcome Reception with his presence on 26 October in the Sheldonian Theatre, one of the architectural jewels of Oxford.
Thanks to previous EDEN events’ participants’ encouraging feedback, this year’s Research Workshop programme will be offering something new. The event setting itself will promote interactivity and collaboration opportunities.
Paper Presentations Speed-Dating
Presentations of accepted papers will be organised in an innovative format that takes the shape of ‘research-speed-dating’.
Presenters will have 6 minutes to present their work, followed by an audience vote on who they would like to elaborate on the paper. The deep discussions of papers selected by the audience will take place in smaller focus groups for the remainder of the session. The detailed Programme is in the making, it is set to be published soon.
All Eyes On: The Workshop Rapporteur
Within the theme strand with a focus on ‘open learning’, there will be a session held as an “Oxford styled debate” on the uptake and impact of OER, with the participation of ICDE UNESCO chairs Rory McGreal & Maria Soledad Ramirez Montoya. The Chair and moderator of this exciting session will be Mark Brown, Director of National Institute for Digital Learning, Dublin City University, Ireland.
