Europe needs young people who are skilful in and enthusiastic for science and regard it as their future career field. To ensure this, large scale initiatives are needed that engage students in interesting and motivating science experiences. Such initiatives should follow an Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE) approach to involve teachers as the main stakeholder and to ensure engagement of other stakeholders, e.g. science laboratories. Different projects have lately started aiming to encourage young people to engage in science topics.

The aim of the workshop is two-fold: on one side to introduce participants to best practices in the field of accessing remote science labs from secondary schools in Europe; on the other side to explore teachers’ current teaching needs in order to introduce remote labs into their teaching. Participants in the workshop will have a chance to see three different projects dealing with making remote access labs accessible to schools. They will have access to the tools developed with a guided tour. Additional participants will be joining virtually.

Workshop Session E6

Meeting Social Justice Goals in ODEL: How are we Doing?

Jennifer Orourke, Canada, Alan Tait, The Open University, United Kingdom

For many decades, the broad social justice goal of overcoming barriers to access to learning has been an underlying principle of open and distance learning. The workshop will consider how elements of social justice affect specific aspects of open and distance learning, including access, curriculum, pedagogy, management  and day to day operations. Participants will have opportunities to explore a framework for identifying social justice goals within their organization and for assessing achievement of those goals in practice. As well, participants will consider the extent to which achieving social justice goals is still realistic and relevant for today’s ODEL.

Technology enhanced learning changes our learning styles, institutional strategies, teaching and learning skills. National associations of technology enhanced learning (TEL) unite professionals applying technologies in learning, facilitate learners, teachers and institutions to enjoy learning using technologies. By “joy of learning” we mean at the same time dangerous and hypnotic engagement of learners, but rather conscious, autonomous and learning–result oriented learning. National associations experience a lot of challenges and requests from local institutions who turn to associations for support to introduce responsible and responsible TEL.

Workshop Session F6
Inspire! – An Unconventional Forum with Young Scholars

This forum is to be organised in collaboration with young researchers and well-known scholars participating and presenting at the conference. The dedicated forum intends to allow its participants to meet and discuss the most relevant themes emerging from the side of the young. The consultation with their peers and with a group of senior scholars presents an opportunity to the more novice to enhance the effectiveness and quality of their work. This interactive session is OPEN TO ALL who consider themselves young enough to benefit from the discussion OR experienced enough to enrich the debate by their own insights and opinions.
