The Open Education Consortium and the AGH University of Science and Technology, organizers of the Open Education Global Conference 2016, invite proposals for conference sessions to take place in Kraków, Poland April 12-14. The theme of the Open Education Global Conference 2016 is Convergence Through Collaboration.
The conference will feature five tracks with Convergence through Collaboration as the cross-cutting theme:
Your proposal should indicate the type of session you are requesting:
Presentation: Traditional conference presentations by one or more authors, followed by Q&A. Presentations must provide an in-depth examination of the topic(s) of interest. Presentation proposals should include a full description of what will be presented. Each presentation, including Q&A, lasts 30 minutes. Presenters have the option to prepare a paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings, which should be submitted by February 15, 2016.
Panel: Panels are moderated sessions of experts discussing a topic, designed to give the audience different perspectives. Panels should be organized as short introductory (10 minute) presentations by panel members followed by interactive discussion with the audience. Panel proposals should include the topics each panelist plans on addressing, intended audience and expected outcomes for the session. Panel discussions will last 60 minutes.
Open Education Action Lab: Action Labs are action-oriented, hands-on sessions. These sessions could take the form of a workshop, a brainstorming discussion, a demonstration, or a participatory how-to session. The Open Education Action Lab is intended to train participants, engage them in thoughtful discussion, provide the opportunities for feedback, and incubate new projects and ideas. Action Lab proposals should describe the intended content, goals of the session, and forms of interaction with participants. Action Lab sessions can range in length from 30 minutes to 3 hours (please indicate your desired length in your proposal).
