OE Global 2019 has ended
Welcome to OE Global19!

To help you plan your participation the conference program schedule can be filtered by date, venue, session type, and session format using the Filter functions.

Filter by Date lets you look at a specific day of the program.
Filter by Venue lets you look at the program by venue rooms where sessions are taking place.
Filter by Type lets you look at the program by track. In addition to keynotes and breaks the program is made up of three main tracks or types of sessions Pedagogy, Roles, and Strategies.
Clicking on a type in Filter by Type lets you see only sessions of that type in the program schedule.
In addition, Pedagogy, Roles, and Strategies each have a set of associated topics. Topics appear when you hover over a type name in the Filter by Type area of Sched. Topics are clickable allowing you to further filter the program by topic.
Session Format lets you view the program by types of sessions - Action Labs, Lightning Talks, Posters, Presentations, and World Cafes.

The conference program is rich and diverse representing the current state of open education around the world.

A study on practices around reuse

To gain more insight into practices of reuse of open learning materials, a survey study has been conducted in two different settings: 1) within a Bachelor program for ICT offered within one institution and 2) in a national Community of Practice on Bachelor of Nursing.

A total of 74 teachers responded on the survey for ICT and 118 teachers for Nursing. An overview of results:

Learning materials most used (overall)
Nursing: Slide decks, assignments, video; ICT: Assignments, slide decks, video

Learning materials most reused as-is (relative)
Nursing: Papers, video, 3rd party courses; ICT: Papers, digital books, digital tools (e.g. online coding environment)

Learning materials most reused with adaptations (relative)
Nursing: Courses from colleagues, slide decks, assignments; ICT: Courses from colleagues, 3rd party courses, slide decks

Learning materials created with no or limited reuse (relative)
Nursing: Tests, games, slide decks; ICT: Tests, assignments, slide decks

Chi-square tests have been executed to find out if observed differences on the use of learning materials are statistically significant. These tests revealed that reuse is significantly more common among teachers in ICT than in Nursing. Furthermore, significant differences were found in the types of learning materials used by teachers in the two settings. Possible explanations for these results as provided by participants during a presentation are differences in pedagogy, different demands from society on the programs and ICT professionals being more accustomed to reuse. Additional research is needed to explore these differences.

In the coming months, we plan to execute the survey within several Universities of Applied Sciences across different disciplines to gain more insight in the extent and the different types of reuse. The results can be used to provide more tailored support to teachers on adoption of OER. In the presentation we will report and discuss the results of this study.
