Radical Pedagogy

EXPLORING THE EDUCATIONAL POTENTIAL OF OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

CALL FOR PAPERS

Open Educational Resources (OER) are defined as the ‘… technology-enabled, open provision of educational resources for consultation, use and adaptation by a community of users for non-commercial purposes. They are typically made freely available over the Web or the Internet …’ (UNESCO, 2002).

The idea of providing free access to knowledge of virtually any subject area was taken on by high profile institutions such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with the OpenCourse Ware (OCW) and the Open University UK with OpenLearn. All initiatives have received tremendous attention in higher education and have been inspiring other institutions to follow the OER movement, as evidenced by the growing membership of the OpenCourseWare Consortium.

Along with the increase of OER programmes there has also been an increase of research into the development, circulation and use of these resources. However, such research has so far focused on technical, legal, and political issues to the detriment of the core issue of education.

For example, the meaning of the term ‘educational’ in OER is open to question: ‘Does it mean that only materials produced with the intention of being used within formal educational settings should be included?’ (Hylen, 2006). In addition to that, conceptual work on the question of ‘openness’ in relation to pedagogy is also needed. Pioneering work has been undertaken in the OLCOS Roadmap 2012 (Geser, 2007) and in the UNESCO report quoted above, but it has been argued that we must also move to Open Educational Practices, i.e., that providing free access to content is only half the story. In a similar vein, Sclater (2011) claims that OER can demonstrate new form of course structure and pedagogy as they are able to free learners from traditional requirements (e.g., admission criteria).

With this special double issue of the journal E-Learning and Digital Media (www.wwwords.co.uk/ELEA) we seek to investigate these claims and bridge this gap in research.

We are inviting contributions that deal with the following aspects:

* Conceptual work that describes teaching and/or learning with OER
* Which educational constructs or theories are of importance in conceptualizing OER?
* Looking back in the history of education, which events have had similarities with OER and can thus be utilised to conceptualise OER today?
* Empirical work reporting on experiences with the sharing, re-using and repurposing of OER using a specific instructional or pedagogical approach such as case studies or best practices

The Man in Black

MIGRATION AND EDUCATION

CALL FOR PAPERS
A Special Issue on MIGRATION AND EDUCATION

The journal Power and Education (www.wwwords.co.uk/POWER) is publishing a special issue on Migration and Education. Papers should address the role education can and should play in the context of migration and/or what migration reveals and conceals about power and education. Migration should be considered as means of empowerment as well as disempowerment. Papers are welcome from all educational disciplines.

The International Organization for Migration estimates that nearly 200 million people across the world are currently living outside their place of birth and that about 3% of the global population are therefore migrants. The mass movement of people in the 21st Century has significant implications for education – from the need to meet legal obligations to educate the children of migrants to the internationalisation of the academic marketplace. Moreover, the legacies of historic migrations continue to impact on education – from the subjugation (and the occasional post-colonial resurrection) of indigenous practices and knowledges to the ethnic lines that still fracture the socio-economic structures of education. If migration presents ‘problems’ then education has a part to play in their resolution – education is widely recognised as a key element of social integration and whilst intolerance can be learned tolerance and mutual respect can be taught.

Power runs through all these issues. It can also be discerned in the on-going debate between multiculturalism and assimilation and the question of whether migrants should be taught the culture of their host countries. Other questions saturated with power include: What histories of migration should be taught? How is the commercialisation of education in an increasingly globalised world driving migration? What is the proper and just approach to the distribution of (typically limited) educational resources to migrants? To what extent can migration be harnessed to empower intercultural education and education for global citizenship?

This special issue of Power and Education will address the complexities of migration from a range of educational disciplines and theoretical frameworks. Contributions are invited that engage with all aspects of migration, including voluntary and forced migration and intra-country migration (e.g. from rural to urban areas) as they impact on children and/or adults and on students and/or teachers. Historical perspectives on the educational legacies of previous migrations are welcome as are considerations of the transition from immigration to integration. Education should be considered in its broadest terms to include all stages of formal education, lifelong learning and informal education. Contributions should specifically address issues of power and/in education and the journal will consider papers engaging with all power paradigms.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
• the Bologna Process
• the ‘brain drain’ and its consequences
• children and language learning
• cultural capital and countries of origin
• displaced children and the inclusion agenda
• global citizenship
• immigration and integration
• refugee academics
• social constructions and interpretations of migration
• teaching and learning diversity in schools
