Josie Fraser keynotes for #OEPSforum4
We are delighted to announce that Josie Fraser will give the keynote at the #OEPSforum4 on 9th March 2016. Josie is passionate about ensuring access for everyone and how open educational resources (OER) and open educational practices (OEP) can help achieve this aim. She wants the OER world to find ways to make education more accessible to everyone regardless of whether learners happen to be taught by an OER enthusiast or not.
Josie’s keynote will focus on the following themes:
- Connecting pockets of practice and embedding OER/OEP
- To what extent what she has done in Leicester has shifted culture
- The challenges of shifting culture and how she addressed them
- How to move from a piecemeal approach to a more strategic approach to embedding OER/OEP
Josie describes herself as a social and educational technologist. She has been working with Leicester City Council since 2010 leading the technology strand of the city’s Building Schools for the Future programme, this has included finding ways to support school staff understand, use and create open educational resources. She organised the UK’s first OER Schools conference in 2015.
