Open Education Leadership Summit
Host: International Council for Open and Distance Education, ICDE, Open Education Consortium, OEC, the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, MESRI, and the Ministry of National Education and Youth, MENJ, of France.
The ICDE Leadership Summit was hosted by the above listed organizations. It was held in Paris, France 3-4 December 2018.
Summit delegates were representative of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America and ensured global diversity. Delegates invited consisted of leaders on all levels of online learning and open education at higher education institutions, from organizations, companies, and agencies engaged in advocating for and leading adoption of open, governmental senior officials.
This event was an innovative interactive event. Participants came prepared to actively engage in hands-on activities, personal networking, and knowledge exchange.
The Open Education Leadership Summit had two parallel concurrent strands of activities - 1. thematic keynotes and 2. roadmap creation. Participants had the ability to move back and forth between the two strands based on their interests but over the course of the 2-day Summit everyone was expected to create a roadmap of their own open education initiative and contribute to regional roadmaps.
One strand of Summit activities was a series of thematic keynotes and discussions including:
Different forms of open education including Open Educational Resources (OER), MOOCs, Open Access, Open Science, Open Data and Open Source Software and Hardware
Emerging open education opportunities including OER recommendations, blockchain, micro-skills, and open badges
The commons of education - general, legal, norms and roles including that of teachers' associations
Open education and the UN Sustainable Development Goals
Growth, sustainability, policy, and business models
2. Roadmap Creation
A second strand engaged participants in hands-on development of a roadmap representing their own open education initiative. Roadmaps came to depict different dimensions of open education initiatives including what open education assets are being created or used, who the people and community involved are, what operational processes and sustainability approaches are being used, and what benefits or value propositions are being achieved. Roadmaps started with what an open education initiative currently has and then mapped out plans for the next two years. Plans could include ideas that come from the thematic keynotes.
Open education involves sharing and reusing. In the process of creating a roadmap participants were asked to identify what they have in their own open education initiative that others could use and what they need that could be provided by others. Sharing and reusing could involve resources, people or communities, strategies, research results, and even value generated in the form of outcomes. Personal networking activities will engage participants in an open education exchange of giving and receiving. Individual roadmaps were used as the basis for creating regional roadmaps.
The Summit aimed to produce a set of outputs including:
Images of individual roadmaps and accompanying audio or video narratives describing them.
Synthesis of contributions made to regional roadmaps including the contributions from individual roadmaps and the potential for coordination and integration of separate open education initiatives into larger regional ones.
Analysis of roadmaps to identify common themes, challenges, and opportunities.
Strategic recommendations for how to accelerate the implementation of open education globally and achieve more through collaboration.
Summit participants will actively engage in hands-on activities, personal networking, and knowledge exchange. The following is a list of pre-summit activities are suggested to help you prepare for the Summit.
