Open Education Policy Forum 2019
October 7 - October 8
Open Education Policy Forum will this year take the form of a six-month policy incubation process, initiated by a two-day in-person workshop and ending during Open Education Week 2020. The workshop will take place on 7-8 October 2019 in Warsaw, Poland. We will be inviting a cohort of approximately twenty fellows to take part in this process.
The process of policy incubation will begin during the event in October and continue for the next six months. During this period, each participant will work on achieving tangible outcomes towards the broader goal of establishing or supporting an open policy in their institution, region or country.
Over the six month period, we will build a peer support network and offer advice on developing these policies. We are also looking for mentors who will support fellows in their policy work.
We will end the Forum process in March 2020, when we will present our achievements during Open Education Week 2020. At the same time the network that we will establish will continue to exist. Next edition of the Forum will take place in Autumn 2020.
This year’s Forum will be designed as a fellowship and leadership development program for activists and advocates working on Open Education policies. The main goal of the Forum process is to develop capacity for policy advocacy in open education.
We want to support activists that work on institutional, organizational, regional or national level policies. We are also keen to support work on comprehensive policies that address multiple forms of open in education, as well as cross-over policies with other fields of open.
This year’s design of the Forum builds on our experiences gained during the last three editions of the Forum. We heard from our participants, that there is a need to focus more strongly on specific policies. We are also designing this year’s Forum to offer stronger leadership support to its participants: open education activists and advocates.
We hope that as a result of the Forum, we will advance Open Education policies, strengthen our movement leaders and build a community of activists cooperating together on open policies.
Our Forum originally had a European focus. This year, by partnering with organisations with a global scope, we want to extend our reach and invite also participants from other parts of the world. We have a limited number of scholarships available to support travel and accomodation.
