Abstract [en]

This workshop aims to enable participants to investigate relationships between open educational resources (OER) projects, usergenerated content (UGC), Web 2.0 technologies and associated online learning communities within a collaborative environment. Participants will play a board game called OERopoly where gaming provides them with a grounded and enjoyable experience of collaborative intelligence in action. The OERopoly board game features international OER projects, organisations and their influence on academic practice. During the workshop participants will collaborate and share knowledge on OER by playing a highly adapted version of the well-known Monopoly format. The workshop thus exposes and explores the perceived relationships (both synergies and tensions) between three worlds: OER projects, UGC, Web2.0 technologies and associated online learning communities. Although there is a high international level of interest in OER and associated areas the field is still relatively unexploited in Sweden. The aim of this board game is to introduce participants to key concepts, projects and initiatives and offer the opportunity to share experience of OER and related web 2.0 technologies from their own universities. The focus of this board game, in stark contrast to the original, is collaboration and collective intelligence. By exploring key concepts and sharing knowledge in a game-based context participants will hopefully be inspired to discover more. This workshop has been devised with the full cooperation of the creators of the original version of OERopoly by Connolly, Makriyannis and Lane
