HEA/SEDA Conference 2012
Call for submissions to the HEA/SEDA conference 2012: Open Horizons: Sharing the future
Submissions are now being invited for the Open Horizons: Sharing the future
conference, which will be held in Birmingham on 20 July 2012.
Following three years of funding from the Higher Education
Academy and JISC, a wide range of programmes and projects have explored the
creation, development, use and reuse of open educational resources. Globally,
the open resources movement is changing polices and the development needs of
staff and students alike. This timely conference will explore answers to the question:
Where next for open practice and staff development? It will feature
contributions from funded projects and new directions in thinking on this
exciting and challenging area of developing academic practice.
The event will bring together a broad range of people
interested in using and developing open educational resources to enhance
accredited CPD courses and inform policy, practice and institutional
strategies, including senior management with strategic learning and teaching
roles, educational developers and lecturers.Proposals for both workshops and research presentations are
sought, and can address any topic related to the use of open educational
resources for the enhancement of higher education staff development.
The deadline for submissions is 27 April 2012. More information about the conference and instructions for
submitting a session proposal can be found on http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/events/detail/2012/OER/OER_SEDA_CONFERENCE.
