OpenEdJam

OpenEdJam is a 3-day international event that brings together activists, developers, educators, engineers, librarians, and makers from all fields. We will provide a hands-on environment where participants can collaborate on innovative creations and uses of free and open education resources. Considering the cultural, ethical and technical implications of free and open education resources, we'll come together to discuss, demonstrate and support the future of free and open education.

We are looking for innovative freely and openly licensed education resources for our first OpenEd Jam! Do you have an idea for an engaging discussion, hands-on demonstration or interactive workshop that will spark the community to create and use open education resources inside and outside the classroom?

We're looking for activists, developers, educators, engineers, librarians, and makers from all fields to come together for 3 days of collaboration and discussion.

We have three tracks: Curriculum, Hardware and Software as well as rounds of Lightning Talks.

The deadline to submit your proposal for OpenEd Jam is April 1st, 2014.

The proposals that we’ll select will consider:

  • Does the proposal advance the overall goal of the event?
  • Does the proposal give concrete value to participants?
  • Does the proposal offer collaboration within the open education community?
  • Is the proposal engaging?

Never facilitated a session at an event before? Don’t let that stop you! We encourage proposals from folks who don’t often attend events and we’re ready to support you to run an awesome session.
