      LEARNING THROUGH SHARING: OPEN RESOURCES, OPEN PRACTICES, OPEN COMMUNICATION
      Centro Interfacoltà di Linguistica Teorica ed Applicata (CILTA)
      University of Bologna, 29-30 March 2012

      This two-day conference focuses on the impact of adopting openness as a key
      principle in education. It explores how open resources, open practices and
      open communication can be integrated in language teaching and learning, and
      in the initial and continuing development of language teachers.

      Themes:

      - theories that underpin openness as a key principle in education
      - using of OER in teaching and/or course development, including reusing and
      re-purposing existing resources for different contexts or resource-based
      learning
      - integrating learner-generated content into language courses
      - developing a culture of sharing amongst the teaching community (barriers
      to and advantages of sharing)
      - sharing resources and/or practices in teacher education (e.g. through
      peer review of resources)
      - sharing resources and intellectual capital with others to raise
      individual or institutional profiles (e.g. through publishing resources on
      itunes U, or through a resource repository, open access publishing of
      research papers )
      - promoting learner communication in 'open' environments (e.g. through
      online gaming, virtual worlds, international discussion boards (Hanna and
      de Nooy), blogs ...)
      - facilitating open communication in CMC - where 'sensitive' topics can be
      broached and diverse opinions are valued.

      We welcome abstracts relating to Open Educational Resources (OER) or Open
      Practices from anyone involved in the fields of CMC-based language teaching
      and learning and foreign language teacher education, including researchers,
      practitioners and doctoral students. We are particularly interested in
      proposals that consider, among others, the topics proposed for the
      conference (see above)


      *Abstracts of 400 words (including title) should be sent by the deadline
      of 1 December 2011 to: bolognasigs2012@...
      *
