The positive Paris talks are not like Copenhagen – but how will media cope? The positive Paris talks are not like Copenhagen – but how will media cope?

Description

It has become a mantra here that Paris 2015 is not Copenhagen 2009. This time, the US and China are on board; the price of renewables has dropped by more than half; the vast majority of countries here have already pledged emission cuts and Paris is seen as a “staging post” not a final destination. But how different is Paris 2015 for the 3,700 media representatives accredited here? Like Copenhagen, where there were 4,000 from nearly 120 countries, the sheer volume of journalists makes the summits two of the most media-covered political events ever.

OII Internet Awards 2014: Interview with Beth Noveck

Description

Interview with Beth Noveck on receiving an internet and society award at the OII Internet Awards 2014. Beth Noveck discusses the work of NYU's Governance Lab (which she directs), and the role of data in opening up government. She starts by discussing the origins of her interest in open government, democratisation, and political culture. She then discusses how opening up government data can translate into positive outcomes -- in terms of delivery of services, greater transparency, and strategies for collaborative goverment-citizen solutions -- and also how easy/difficult it is in practice to open and promote cultural change in government. She discusses how our notion of citizenship needs to change: we need a more active conception of citizenship, with citizens regarded as cocreators and pa Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

No open learning without open access: a portal for open access research into teaching modern languages

Description

The presentation will also explore the wider discussions currently taking place about open access from the ethical as well as the financial and organisational perspectives. Open access to research is also crucial in ensuring that MOOCs are genuinely open and inclusive and do not perpetrate the current privileges of students and staff in well-resourced institutions.

Open and Informal: Opening up the Open University

Description

The Open University is exploring the development of pathways between more open and informal learning and formal learning, and is changing the nature of audience and learner interaction and participation, through the creative use of open educational resources and different media channels. Developing from the University’s main hosting website for open educational resources (http://openlearn.open.ac.uk/), the OU is extending its reach into Africa, as well as transforming teaching and learning practice in the UK. Other media channels (e.g. YouTube and ITunesU) allow us to explore how to engage different audiences in different ways to bring them into the educational sphere. Within the Institute, we have large projects running which also bring learning to wider audiences, allowing us to unders

The team is made up of Lorna M Campbell, OER Liaison - Open Scotland, Stuart Nicol, Learning Technology Team Manager, Stephanie (Charlie) Farley, OER Advisor, Ewan McAndrew, Wikimedian-in-Residence, Jo Spiller, Head of Educational Design and Engagement, Eugenia Twomey, Student Engagement Officer, Anne-Marie Scott, Head of Digital Learning Applications & Media, Susan Greig, Learning Technology Advisor and Martin Tasker, Open Content Curation Intern. Edinburgh?s Vision for OER builds on the history of the Edinburgh Settlement, excellent education and research collections, traditions of the enlightenment and the University?s civic mission. This vision is supported by the University?s OER Policy, which places open education at the heart of learning and teaching strategy. The Open Education Team undertakes a wide range of activities that support staff and students to engage with OER, and help the institution to mainstream digital education across the curriculum. The OER Service run by Stuart Nicol and Stephanie (Charlie) Farley supports course teams, staff and students to develop digital literacies around OER. Stuart and Charlie run creative workshops that help colleagues achieve practical goals whilst learning about the value of OER and Creative Commons. They also contribute to the University?s new CMALT programme managed by Susan Greig. Open.Ed is our one-stop-shop OER website, which provides access to ?how to? guides; OER collections; and blog feeds from OER practitioners. Martin Tasker, our Open Content intern, helps staff and students to publish collections that engage with the wider community. The Open Education Team works closely with Wikimedia UK and includes a dedicated Wikimedian-in-Residence, Ewan McAndrew, who runs skills training events and editathons, along with Jo Spiller and Eugenia Twomey, to help encourage more women to become editors, and improve the coverage of Wikipedia articles about women. The Team also supports Open Scotland a cross sector initiative, run by Lorna M. Campbell that aims to raise awareness of open education, and explore the potential of open policy and practice to benefit all sectors of Scottish education. Earlier this year Lorna was privileged to co-chair the OER16 conference. The theme of OER16 was Open Culture and the conference was a huge success attracting a wide range of international delegates.
