What do we mean by ‘the Open Web’?
We are not prescriptive in terms of what the Open Web is and, indeed, we acknowledge it is a loosely defined term that can be interpreted in different ways. However, we are keen on contributions focusing on digital practices that involve the use of online technologies that are aligned with the founding principles of the World Wide Web (WWW), imagined by its creator Sir Tim Berners-Lee as “an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries.”
Creating a web domain – through some open source web publishing applications or simply using plain HTML – is a quintessential example of the Open Web. However, many other tools and platforms can be described as instances of the Open Web (the OWLTEH catalogue gathers some examples).
Who is it for?
The event is aimed at anyone interested in teaching-learning practices that involve using the Open Web, whether already doing it or simply wishing to do so. In particular, it will be relevant to Academics, Learning Technologists, Academic Developers, Instructional Designers and professionals working in HE, FE or community / adult education.
