Call for grants: #dariahTeach Open Education Workshop

27 Sep 2016 - 00:00

#dariahTeach are pleased to invite proposals from early career researchers to participate at the “Open Education” workshop on digitally enhanced learning, OER and MOOCs, which takes place during the Open Resources #dariahTeach closing conference in March 2017.

Digitally enhanced education exists on a global scale and plays a major role in the advancement of education. Many questions still remain regarding how digital learning tools and objects, offered as open education resources (OER) or full programs (MOOCs), are implemented. “Open Education”, as part of the DARIAH 2016 Theme on Public Humanities, is a workshop organized in Lausanne (CH) by the #dariahTeach consortium. This workshop focuses on how new pedagogical aspects of digitally enhanced learning may be driven by communities, enablers and stakeholders. The event, which includes expertise from Education Science, will focus on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of digitally enhanced learning, and how we can progress this as a public good. It is endorsed by ADHO, EADH and Humanistica. We are pleased to open a call for six grants for early career researchers (deadline: 10th November 2016 25 of November 2016).

This workshop features 25 invited scholars from diverse European countries, involved in Open Education (22-23 March 2017, Lausanne). The event is part of the the Open Resources #dariahTeach closing conference (23-24 March 2017, Lausanne). We are offering six travel and accommodation grants (max. 800 Euros) to early career researchers. PhD students are also welcome to apply.
