OpenCon 2018 has ended
Saturday, November 3 • 1:20pm - 2:50pm
How might we equip those working in universities and colleges to embed diversity and inclusivity into their work with open educational practices and resources? (North America 1 -- Part 2)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You have been assigned to a workshop (or, you selected one if you’re citizenship suggests you’re north american), you can find out which at opencon2018.org/groups, or it’s in your inbox.

OpenCon’s mission is to catalyse action towards contextual culture change, at scale, in service of a more open, diverse, inclusive and equitable research and education system. Doing that is hard. One of our experiments in making it easier is to create ways to give participants the opportunity to constructively identify, understand, and tackle complex challenges that matter to them in a rapid, inclusive, and agile way. We think a technique called Design Thinking can be used to do this.

In these interactive workshops, you’ll use Design Thinking to break down a challenge facing your region, and get a chance to learn and practice the skills for later application in the Unconference, Do-a-thon, and of course your own work. Along the way, we hope you’ll create shareable, concrete outputs from the workshop that can give birth to regional collaboration, novel ideas for action, projects to rally around, and a deeper understanding of challenges.
