Expanding Horizons in Open & Distance Learning – ODLAA Conference

The ODLAA Conference organising committee are excited about how the upcoming ODLAA conference is shaping up.

As well as our wonderful keynotes a fine selection of insightful papers from delegates around the world, there will also be a number of engaging workshops, in which delegates can participate and interact. This conference will be hands-on rather than talking-heads.

Conference Workshops Update

Workshop sessions will be scheduled throughout the conference program, including the opening Sunday afternoon. The final workshop sessions and conference program will be finalised soon, but here’s a sneak preview of some of the workshops:

1. Olaf Zawacki-Richter (EDEN and Germany) on Exploring Frameworks for Research in Open, Flexible and Distance Learning

2. Sandra Wills (CSU) Moving an institution to online at scale. What does it really mean for a university to really be an “online” university?

3. Jingjing Zang (Beijing Normal University) on Social Network Analysis as a tool for Learning Analytics.

4. Dr Stefan Popenici (CSHE, University of Melbourne) on Engaging Students in Online Learning

5. Carina Bossu (University of Tasmania) on Enabling open education in Australia
