ICODEL 2014 Conference Theme
The theme of ICODeL2014, the second ICODeL, is “Universities in an Era of Open Education”.
As the new digital and networked technologies become ever more ubiquitous, learning anywhere and anytime is fast becoming a lifestyle and the ideal of education for all is increasingly within reach. Open education is the new call of the times, and it is being taken up by both learners and educators alike.
While some universities are making significant contributions to open education, others are confronting the challenges that it poses, for example in terms of admissions, assessment and accreditation, curriculum and learning resources, and teaching and learning modalities.
ICODeL2014 brings together academics, teachers, researchers, university and school administrators, policymakers, trainers, students, and other education stakeholders in government, industry, and other professional sectors to share experiences in open education initiatives, and critical reflections on how universities can lead the way towards achieving “a world of open, flexible and effective education for all” (The Cape Town Open Education Declaration).
Topics of interest for this conference include the following:
Open online courses: MOOCs, TOOCs, MOUCs, and MODeLs
OER, open courseware, open textbooks
Flexible learning: giving learners a choice about when, where, and how to learn
Open educational practices, open pedagogies, open teaching
The Semantic Web, Personal Learning Environments, and other open learning spaces and technologies
Mobile learning: harnessing mobile phones, tablets, and other handheld devices for learning
Assessment and accreditation of learning: from credit transfer to accreditation of prior learning (APL/PLAR) to open badges
Digital literacies and new media literacies: literacy in a digital age
Quality Assurance in/and open education: frameworks and models
Academic leadership and management in a time of opennessPDF version
