The ALT Scotland SIG has a lovely day lined up to discuss ‘openness’ in various aspects of education. It’s particularly nice to see people for the Scottish Government and education coming together and hopefully there will be a useful exchange of information and ideas. The event is free to attend but numbers are limited so don’t delay to avoid disappointment. We’ll hopefully be streaming the event to the ALT YouTube channel so hopefully there will be an opportunity to engage remotely.
[on a personal note really looking forward to finally being able to meet Jonathan Worth in person #bigfan].
Open Scotland is a free one day event that provides an opportunity for ALT Scotland SIG members and the wider community to come together and share ideas and experiences of adopting and promoting open educational practices across all sectors of Scottish education. The event will highlight examples of open education innovation across the Scottish education sector, including adoption of open badges and open assessment and accreditation practices; development of open educational resources and courses and open frameworks for technology enhanced learning. In addition to showcasing homegrown initiatives, the event will also look further afield to inspiring and innovative projects and developments across the UK. This event will also explore some of the drivers and barriers to embedding open education policy and practice within Scottish education, and will provide an opportunity to discuss the draft Scottish Open Education Declaration prepared by Open Scotland*.
