Event description
The power of Open Education Resources for inclusive education

About this event

Have you considered the power of open for inclusivity? Open educational practices connect students to real world experience by involving students in the creation of knowledge for use at university and in the wider community.

With student involvement in the creation, resources can be more representative of the student perspective. Please join us as we discuss the state of open education in the Australian context. With the flip to online teaching and learning, Open Educational Resources have come to the fore with multiple Australian universities now contributing to the landscape.

Our guest at this session will be Eseta Tualaulelei, Senior Lecturer (Early Childhood Curriculum and Pedagogy), University of Southern Queensland, discussing the use of open pedagogy in her unit resulting in the publishing of two open textbooks addressing early years educators concerns related to reconciliation and multicultural education.

* Please note our Hackathon will follow this session on the 8th October 2021. If you have any concerns about registering please email inclusive-education@deakin.edu.au.

Bio: Eseta Tualaulelei teaches cross-cultural communication and intercultural education in the University of Southern Queensland’s School of Education. Her research utilises Bourdieusian, critical and indigenous approaches to examine the interplay of culture, language and learning. She is an ‘accidental’ open practitioner, having stumbled upon open assessment through a university grant program in 2019. However, the grant activity has led to two edited volumes of student work, four conference presentations, two journal articles (under review) and a forthcoming interactive event at OEGlobal 2021. She is currently working on a second open assessment project titled “Increasing graduate capabilities in professional leadership through open assessment”.

Bio: Angie Williamson has been at Deakin University Library since 2013 and joined the Inclusive digital environments project in April. As Program Coordinator (Open Education), she focuses on increasing OER awareness and usage at Deakin. Angie also contributes to the wider Open Education environment as part of the ASCILITE Open Education Practice – Special Interest group and the CAUL OER Advocacy project team.
