We would like to invite you to join us at the OpenGame project’s national event for Ireland. This online event is for those interested in promoting Open Education, Open Educational Practices (OEPs) and Open Educational Resources (OERs) for teaching and learning. More specifically, the event will explore how OEPs can solve problems for educators they encounter in their everyday teaching practices. It will also discuss institutional capacity building for harnessing the potential of Open Education, OEPs and OERs.
About the OpenGame project
The OpenGame project (Promoting Open Education through Gamification) aims to facilitate the uptake of OEPs and OERs among educators in Higher Education through a gamified and authentic situated learning experience. The online game, “Catch the Open!” is based on real-life, open teaching approaches being used by educators in their teaching, learning and assessment.
This engaging online game has been designed and built up from a number of other valuable project outputs: an open educational practices competency framework; a Handbook of Successful Open Educational Practices; and the entire OpenGame Course Curriculum and Content.
The event will start with an opening keynote by Dr James Brunton from Dublin City University (DCU) on the transformative potential of Open Education Practices (OEPs). An overview of the outputs from the OpenGame project will then follow. Lastly, a panel discussion will discuss ways of getting started with OEPs/OERs to help address some of the real problems and challenges facing today’s educators.
