News release:
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.
