Dear colleagues,

Registration for the KPU Open Education Research Institute 2021 is now open. See below and the attached PDF for more information about this exciting opportunity for new and emerging open education researchers.

Dates: Monday, May 3 | Wednesday, May 5 | Friday, May 7
Time: 9am – 12pm (PST)
Program Description: As open education initiatives mature, it is imperative to investigate their impacts whether it be to advocate for institutional support or to iterate, innovate and further advance the goal of equitable access. For this reason, open education research is becoming an important facet within a healthy and thriving open ecosystem. This three-day Open Education Research Institute (OERI) provides an opportunity for new and emerging researchers interested in open educational practices to deepen their knowledge and sharpen their skillset while connecting with other researchers and joining a Provincial mentorship network.
Learning Outcomes:
Participants will

  *   receive an overview of existing research on open educational practices, including a special focus on research conducted in or by researchers in British Columbia.
  *   learn about different theoretical and methodological frameworks for research in open education
  *   receive guidance on practical issues such as preparing applications for ethical review of their research projects and publishing their work in open access journals or repositories
  *   work in affinity groups to draft and revise their research questions and be paired with an experienced researcher, who will serve as their mentor for the following year.
The OERI is jointly funded by KPU's Office of Open Education and BCcampus. While there will be no cost to register for the event, registration is required for planning and logistics.
To maintain a fruitful experience for participants, registration is limited. To cultivate a research community here is BC, priority will be given to registrants at BC institutions.
